NEW RELEASE Special BOX SET of the Veronica Kennicott Cozy Mystery Series
HOLLYWOOD PLAYS FOR KEEPS reveals the raw, real underbelly of the acting world, a contrary world where the smaller the stakes the more vicious the competition. In this cozy mystery, punctuated with dark humor and provocative satire, Veronica Kennicott meets murder, ghosts, and friends in a small theatre production. At the Valentine Theatre, has-beens and wannabes mingle with stars under the spotlights where sex is currency and murder lurks in the wings. With the studio system in Hollywood replaced by the small theatre training ground, the “play’s the thing” as actors claw their way from the seedy Valentine Theatre to the big screen. With opening night looming and careers at stake, the multiple rich characters stop at nothing to win their fifteen minutes of fame.
⚓ CRUISE SHIP MYSTERY! ⚓
In this cozy mystery, aspiring novelist Veronica Kennicott crosses the stormy Atlantic on a raucous and deadly awards cruise, as Hollywood film writers and world-class authors race against time and death. In isolated international waters, fear grips the eccentric, competitive, and jealous group—from best-selling heavyweights to amateur hangers-on. As bodies amass on the British five-star Queen Anne, an unlikely band of frantic mystery writers unite as amateur sleuths to stop the killings. Ignoring the dangers, Veronica leads their desperate battle against the drunken ship doctor’s corporate cover-up of the crimes.
