Tracy Gardner posted this fantastic review for her upcoming Ruby Red Herring novel which is publishing next week by Crooked Lane Books.

“I could kiss the person who wrote this review! 🥰
"Oh my gosh this book grabbed my attention right off the bat and didn't let go until the end! It was cozy mystery meets a cozy version of National Treasure or a modern but cozy Indy Jones or possibly Night at the Museum...
I loved the genuine friendship Avery had with her business partners and how they treated her like a daughter after having lost her dad, their good friend. Tilly and Avery's relationship was great! It was silly, fun and sometimes serious if needed. Avery was an amazing older sister, and Tilly was surprising with some of the insight she had at times. And who wouldn't love Aunt Midge! She wasn't a cuddly type aunt, but she loved the girls so much she'd given up living in Manhattan to stay with them when their parents died.
Art should get an award for detective of the century or something for not giving up on his cases. The dynamic between Avery and Art was great!
The ending was amazing and well-wrapped up as you'll see when you read it--the whole book was just hard to put down and nearly impossible to find a suitable stopping point for things like sleeping or eating, lol. I'm super excited for the next book in this series!" -Netgalley reviewer

Congratulations to Doyin Richards.

I’m VERY excited about this. My 5th(!!) book is the story of a puppy sharing what he notices as his Black owner navigates through his all-white neighborhood. It’s funny, heartwarming, and inspiring - and you will not want to miss it. Big ups to Art of Robert Paul Jr. for sharing this initial illustration.

It’s coming in Fall 2022 👊🏾

It Takes a Thief by Sloane Steele is publishing today by Carina Press

"When catching a thief requires becoming one.

Jared Towers has skills. One of them is being able to talk his way out of—or into—anything.

Audrey Abbott has skills, too. Need something hacked and only the best will do? She’s your girl.

He’s charming.

She’s reclusive.

They have absolutely nothing in common—except for a driving desire to take care of those who need it the most.
