Mystery Deals and Freebies - A Day Early!

This Week's Newsletter

This week's newsletter contains the following features:
(Feel free to skip ahead to what you want to read)

What's new with Ashleigh?

First of all, I would like to apologize because odds are, you are receiving this email on the wrong day. Why?

Well, that's going to depend on which newsletter you are receiving. Tuesday, I was unable to send my newsletter because of a minor health scare. (It's okay. I'm fine, or at least getting there. But I was unable to work Monday evening and all day Tuesday. I'm still not feeling 100% right now, but I really wanted to send this newsletter.) Thursday is Thanksgiving and Friday we will be travelling. So, I decided to send all my newsletters today. (Except my Monday one. You guys got me before I starting feeling ill.)

My second apology is for those of you reading my Choose Your Own Path stories. My Monday middle grade one went out no problems because that entire story is already written. I just had to find it on my computer, copy the story, and paste it into my email. The other three stories? Well, as you know, I write those every week based on your votes. However, last week, I just couldn't do it.

It's not that I don't love writing for you all. I really do. It's one of the many things for which I am grateful this Thanksgiving.

However, as you know, my family must come first.

My two oldest children are currently in eighth grade (#2 skipped a grade and is in the same grade as #1). Last year, I asked if they would like to attend "real" school for high school. They continued saying no until about a month ago. As soon as we started looking, we learned that we didn't have much time. Most of the schools they like had application deadlines last week.

So, instead of writing my CYOP stories, I was filling out half a dozen application forms, as well as all the associated financial aid applications.

I'm hoping to have the CYOP stories back by next week. However, now that applications are (mostly) submitted, it's time to focus on Thanksgiving and its traditions.

And I want to know:
What is your favorite Thanksgiving tradition?

Recipe for Disaster

Recipe for Disaster
A Cassie Desmarais Mysteries Prequel

A stolen recipe book brings a taste of disaster to town.

Tragedy strikes the quaint coastal town of Harmony Bay when everyone’s favorite grandmother passes away.

Mia Thomas is in charge of the priceless cookbook, left in the will to Grandma Des’s granddaughter Cassie. It’s a longstanding tradition that the book be passed on to the next female in line and Mia is proud to hand it over.

When the book is stolen, and the police are too busy with the upcoming annual Harmony Bay fair, it’s up to Mia to take matters into her own hands.

But the people on her suspect list include the Mayor’s wife, Agnes Sutton, and the local baker, Dan Caldwell. Mia works against the clock as she tries to find the book before Cassie returns to claim her inheritance, and she needs to do it without stepping on anyone’s toes.

Chronicles of the Cozy Museum Murder

Chronicles of the Cozy Museum Murder
The Misadventures of a Cat Detective

I thought my days of unraveling mysteries were behind me, but when the Mayor of Picklesquare calls me in the dead of night, I'm plunged into a new enigma that sends chills down my spine.

A murder has tainted the hallowed halls of the Picklesquare Museum of History, and a priceless artifact has vanished without a trace. The chilling detail? The killer used magic, a shapeshifter's spell, to infiltrate the museum.

As Detective Grey Thompson and I delve into the heart of this perplexing case, we discover a world teeming with historic secrets, a cast of eccentric characters harboring their own truths, and whispered tales of an ancient map leading to forgotten treasure.

But what I'm about to uncover isn't just another puzzle to solve. It's a revelation about my own family, a revelation that shakes the very core of who I thought I was.

As we race against time to unmask the shapeshifter and retrieve the stolen artifact, I realize that this case is more dangerous than anything I've encountered before. With each passing moment, the killer slips further through our fingers, and the secrets of Picklesquare create an enchanting labyrinth of deceit.

I must embrace the magic coursing through my veins to solve a case that grows more perilous with each passing moment.

Will I unmask the shapeshifter in time, or will they disappear into the shadows, leaving this historic mystery forever unsolved?
