SILENT WITNESS TO MURDER A Fictional Novel At the conclusion of the author's first book of this series, Friends and Betrayals, and as Silent Witness to Murder opens, John Ryan and his wife B.J. decided to renew their wedding vows by enjoying a second honeymoon vacation at Freeport, Bahamas. On the final day of their stay at the resort hotel, while B.J. was packing for their trip home in Kansas City, John decided to turn on T.V. to find out what was happening in the news. He and B.J. were shocked as Liz Bollinger of Worldwide Cable News, broadcasting from Kansas City, informed the viewers of a gangland-execution-style shooing, in which John's friend Frank Genovo was the intended target and John's dad Harry Ryan was an unintended victim. Only one witness saw the shootings, a neighbor who lived across the street from John's mother and father. She was walking her dog late on the night of the incident, and she was able to see and remember everything clearly, and exactly as it happened. However, she was afraid for herself and her pet, and when she was interviewed by the police she told them it was too dark and she was unable to see anything. Two Kansas City police detectives go about gathering evidence, but their police captain doesn't like the direction the evidence is heading, so he intentionally diverts the detectives on a different path. The two detectives abandon their previous investigation, and they eventually arrest a good friend and client of John and B.J., by the name of Chuck Robertson. Chuck claims innocence, and he pleads with John and B.J. to help him. B.J. reluctantly agrees to represent him on his criminal defense. B.J. hires a private investigator, who proceeds to dig up evidence the detectives conveniently hide or ignore. As the investigation unfolds, John and B.J. assist his mother in locating a home and in providing for her security. B.J. and John learn they are to be parents, and they purchase a new home for themselves and their new expectant

In this delightfully madcap entry in the New York Times and USA Today bestselling Bed-and-Breakfast series, innkeeper and amateur sleuth Judith McMonigle Flynn’s plans for a relaxing vacation in the Canadian Rockies go awry when she realizes her fellow guests have a different kind of getaway in their devious minds! Vacations can be murder. No one knows that better than Judith McMonigle Flynn, owner of Seattle’s popular Hillside Manor B&B. After a busy summer, Judith desperately needs some R&R. Leave it to her thoughtful husband, Joe, to surprise her with a trip to Banff. Though Hillside Manor is booked solid through Labor Day, everything is in good hands. Her neighbors, Carl and Arlene Rankers, will take over at the inn and deal with its guests as well as Judith’s cantankerous mother, Gertrude, and the equally grumpy Sweetums, the old orange cat. Thrilled to be getting away, Judith’s overjoyed that Cousin Renie and Bill are joining in the fun. Though the husbands have made the arrangements, a wary Judith wonders how bad a short time away, booked into a luxurious resort in the beautiful mountains of Alberta, could be? Judith and Renie are about to find out! While making reservations, Joe and Bill made one tiny mistake. Instead of a gorgeous suite in a hotel modeled after a Scottish castle, they’re staying at a small motel farther down the road. But while their accommodations leave something to be desired, the other on-site guests are the real prize. Ma and Pa Stokes and the assorted members of their family have gathered on the mountainside to give a relative a proper and permanent send-off—a nice gesture, until Judith realizes that paying their respects might be a little premature . . . without some very sinister assistance. Old man Codger’s final wish is for his remains to be sent off down the Bow River. Yet the old coot isn’t quite dead . . . yet. Now it’s up to Judith and Renie to determine who arranged to send a would-be corpse on an early date with the undertaker . . .

The Amazing Wilmer Dooley

Student scientist Wilmer Dooley and his friends—and enemies—are back with another hilarious mystery to solve in this zany, action-packed sequel to The Contagious Colors of Mumpley Middle School. Wilmer Dooley can't wait to be a seventh grader. But first, he really can't wait for the 45th Annual State Science Fair and Consortium. It will be a blissful summer weekend spent hanging out with Ernie and impressing Roxie with his dazzling project on bacteria. But Wilmer's dreams come crashing down when he arrives at the dilapidated Sac à Puces Palladium, Lodge, and Resort-Like Hotel. First, his old biology teacher, Mrs. Padgett, is a chaperone—and she absolutely despises Wilmer. Next he learns that the fair's final activity involves being stranded in the dark woods and trying not to get eaten by bears. And worst of all, his arch nemesis, Claudius, is there—and he's brought along his equally rotten cousin Vlad. Wilmer quickly begins to suspect that the two are planning something horribly sinister. But as he grows more and more concerned, the other kids begin behaving more and more strangely...almost as if they're being brainwashed. And when Wilmer discovers the diabolical scheme that's afoot, it's even more terrible than he had imagined—and he may be too late to stop it.
