About the Author
Kathy's unconventional path to publication can certainly be described as the "road less traveled." A pioneer for women in law enforcement, she was one of the first female state troopers in Iowa, and she learned two valuable lessons that have served her well in her pursuit of a professional writing career: never give up and never stop laughing. Kathy is the award-winning author of the Calamity Jayne Mystery series. She's been a Romantic Times American Title finalist, a Golden Heart finalist, and a finalist in the prestigious Daphne Du Maurier Award of Excellence contest, among other writing accolades.
Sally J. Smith and Jean Steffens, are partners in crime—crime writing, that is. They live in Scottsdale, Arizona, awesome for eight months out of the year, an inferno the other four. They write bloody murder, flirty romance, and wicked humor all in one package. When their heads aren't together over a manuscript, you'll probably find them at a movie or play, a hockey game or the mall, or at one of the hundreds of places to find a great meal in the Valley of the Sun.
Jennifer Fischetto is the USA Today Bestselling Author of the Jamie Bond Mysteries. Unbreakable Bond, her adult debut novel, has received a National Reader's Choice award nomination. She writes dead bodies for ages 13 to six-feet-under. When not writing, she enjoys reading, cooking, singing (off-key), and watching an obscene amount of TV. She also adores trees, thunderstorms, and horror movies—the scarier the better. She lives in Western Mass with her family and is currently working on her next project.
Margaret loves murder mysteries—the sooner the corpse appears, the better! Whether it's a cozy, a paranormal, or romantic suspense, she likes to watch the puzzle unravel. If not reading crime fiction, she's writing her own mysteries. Margaret's debut novel features a lawyer who turns into a witch during her first murder case. When characters can kill with spells, the ways to dispatch a victim dramatically increase. Margaret used to practice law, so she knows a lawyer can transform into a witch. Margaret shares a home in Phoenix with her husband and their seven rescue dogs. A mix of breeds from pit bulls to terriers, the pack walks their owners every day. When not engrossed in murder, Margaret tries new recipes, grows weird succulents, and goes bird watching with her husband.

Such a good book. I could not put it down. Highly recommend you to read it even if you don't usually read about magic.
All of the stories were excellent.
Just read the 1st book in the set, A Haunting Homicide: Excellent! ... and didn't trip over a bunch of typos. Wow. Thank you!
Three different mysteries.The last was not my genre but I wanted to finish it.Didnt really care for it.
Good read. Thoroughly enjoyed.
Loved this set!! I love Halloween and was glad to get a set of mysteries centered around the holiday!
i love box sets. great way to try new authors or series at a bargain price. I've read something by each of these authors before- and actually read two of these but this was a steal for the other two. i know they will be just as enjoyable. i'm especially excited for Jayne. she's a hoot.
What a great collection! I paid for two of these books separately and thought they were worth full price. To get for for 99 cents is a great deal. If you enjoy light hearted cozy mysteries, you will love this collection.
