Finally able to leave her less-than-appealing tiny LA apartment and move into her beloved, honeymooning Uncle Horace’s home in Loma Vista, Toni Carey is looking forward to living in the place of some of her favorite childhood memories. She’s still packing up the boxes when she is visited by the somewhat pretentious Henry Smith, who has been referred to her by San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department Detective Peter Martin. While their budding romance seemed to have withered away from distance and distractions, Peter seems to have been impressed enough through their previous criminally intertwined interactions.

Sample a slice of four new series and fill your candy bag with Halloween mysteries. Vampires, ghosts, and murders abound. Be careful out there and wear a mask—even when it’s not Halloween! Some of these are October releases, and some just fit the Halloween season!

After cashing out her work as a software product developer, Antonia “Toni” Carey has comfortably settled into a life working from home in Los Angeles as a trade magazine freelance writer. A note from her beloved Uncle Horace sends her on a visit to Loma Vista, where she has fond memories of spending her childhood with him and his beehives. Meeting her at his home instead of Uncle Horace is San Bernardino County Sheriff detective Peter Martin, who delivers the shocking news that Horace Carey is lying in a coma in the local hospital. Apparently the victim of a robbery, Peter and Toni have their suspicions not due to a smoking gun, but smoking bees.

Have you ever been so in love with someone that you would do anything for them? Me neither. What a crock. The interns we hire – they may not be in love with the staff, but they’ll do anything for us. A real May through December romance. And I certainly use that to my advantage. I’m a tough guy, after all.
