Danger Cove Farmers Market Mysteries

A Death in the Flower Garden
A Danger Cove Farmers' Market Mystery
(Danger Cove Mysteries book #14)

by Elizabeth Ashby & Gin Jones



It's Independence Day weekend, and Maria Dolores, the descendant of Danger Cove's first lighthouse keeper, is the new manager of the Lighthouse Farmers' Market. While she may be a bit uncertain about her career change—trading financial planning for flower stalls and farm fresh produce—she's still determined to get the market into shape and onto one of the region's "best of" lists.

From the very beginning, though, events conspire against her. Her mentor and attractive local farmer, Merle Curtis, fails to show up to introduce her to the vendors, the stalls are all in the wrong place, and an earthquake shakes up everyone in the market! In its aftermath, Maria realizes the flower vendor is more than shaken up... she's dead. Maria suddenly finds herself embroiled in a small town mystery that's got everyone on edge. Will it all lead to the end of Maria's new career? Or worse yet... her life?

A Slaying in the Orchard
A Danger Cove Farmers' Market Mystery
(Danger Cove Mysteries book #16)

by Elizabeth Ashby & Gin Jones

Labor Day weekend starts with a bang in Danger Cove when a dead body is found in the orchard of Maria Dolores' mentor and maybe-boyfriend, Merle! While it's clear the murder took place long ago, the police are still keeping Merle tied up, leaving Maria on her own to run the local farmers' market. She's prepared for the petty squabbles, disorganized vendors, and even a rowdy group of costumed pirates—it comes with the territory. But she isn't prepared for the fresh body found in an isolated corner of the market!

Maria would like to leave the investigation to the local homicide detective, but he's stretched thin with two separate murders, and her nemesis—the farmer who lost out to her for the manager's job—is demanding quick answers or else. With a nearly endless array of suspects, since the victim had upset just about everyone at the market, Maria has her work cut out for her! Can she prevent another murder in the market...or will she end up the next victim?

A Secret in the Pumpkin Patch
A Danger Cove Farmers' Market Mystery
(Danger Cove Mysteries book #17)

by Elizabeth Ashby & Gin Jones

It's Halloween, and Maria Dolores is hoping for a trouble-free weekend, the last one before the Lighthouse Farmers' Market closes for the winter. But her hopes are dashed when a state agricultural inspector threatens to shut down the market prematurely...right before a young woman falls to her death from the lighthouse cliff!

The local homicide detective thinks it was suicide and won't listen to Maria's extensive list of possible suspects for foul play or the fact that the victim was known for getting into fights that went beyond mere words. Not even Maria's boyfriend, lawyer-turned-farmer Merle Curtis, can convince the detective otherwise.

Now it's up to Maria to unearth A SECRET IN THE PUMPKIN PATCH before the killer buries the truth—and possibly Maria along with it—forever.

Coming October 3!
