"Kat Denham is a widow living in the small Midwest university town of Lindsay, Kansas. She's an author and writes what some would call "steamy" novels in the Lusty Woman series under the pen name of Sexy Cissy. Knowing how conservative the townspeople are, she's kept her true identity as the author of these books a secret. It all unravels when Kat's editor, Nancy Jennings, is having lunch at the local country club, and Kat's latest manuscript slips out of her tote bag and is left under the table. The manuscript gets into the wrong hands, and Kat's occupation becomes known to a number of the local residents. It doesn't get any better when Kat discovers Nancy has been murdered. Because her identity as the author of the books has been disclosed, Kat worries she might be the killer's next victim. In order to save her reputation and her life, she has to find out who murdered Nancy. Was it Nancy's husband? Was it the woman who had become obsessed with any book she considered to be morally objectionable? Or the "trophy wife" of the local banker?"--Back cover.

After a brutal mugging in Manhattan leaves him with a broken arm and fractured skull, insurance investigator Jeff Resnick reluctantly agrees to recover at the home of his estranged half brother, Richard.

But when a local banker is found in the same condition, Jeff believes the attack has left him with a sixth sense--an ability to witness murder before it happens. Piecing together clues he saw in his visions, Jeff attempts to solve the crime. His brother Richard is skeptical, but unsettling developments begin to forge a tentative bond. Soon, things that couldn't be explained by premonition come to light, and Jeff finds himself probing into dangerous secrets that touch his own traumatic past in wintry Buffalo--and the killer is ready to eliminate Jeff's visions permanently.

Bewitched meets Murder She Wrote in this delightful new cozy mystery series featuring Ophelia Jensen, small town librarian and reluctant psychic, and her grandmother Abby, a benevolent witch. Thirty something Ophelia Jensen wants to live a quiet life as a small town librarian. She's created a comfortable existence with her kooky, colorful grandmother Abby, and if it were up to her, they could live out their days—along with Ophelia's dog Lady and cat Queenie—in peace and quiet. But, to Ophelia's dismay, she and Abby aren't a typical grandmother/granddaughter duo. She possesses psychic powers, and Abby is a kindly witch. And while Ophelia would do anything to dismiss her gift—harboring terrible guilt after her best friend was killed and she was unable to stop it—threatening events keep popping up, forcing her to tap into her powers of intuition. To make matters worse, a strange—yet devastatingly attractive—man is hanging around Ophelia's library, and no matter how many times she tells him she's sworn off men forever, he persists. Soon this handsome newcomer reveals he's following a lead on a local drug ring, and then a dead body shows up right in Abby's backyard. And much as Ophelia would like to put away her spells forever, she and Abby must use their special powers to keep themselves, and others, out of harm's way.
