Whiskey, Large
Nine months pregnant, real estate broker Whiskey Mattimoe is literally living large. She needs a driver now and a nanny very soon. What she doesn''t need is another murder to solve... Magnet Springs is re-branding itself as a pet-friendly vacation destination, but the transition is bumpy. Someone is shooting at unleashed dogs, including Whiskey''s own escape artist Abra. The shooter could be a disgruntled resident, a crazed tourist, or someone closer to home. Then two humans die in an explosion, and, even though she''s on maternity leave, Whiskey finds herself in the middle of the investigation. Is it an accident or murder? And who''s going to drive Whiskey to the hospital when her water breaks?

Whiskey with a Twist
Whiskey Mattimoe''s Afghan hound Abra has many talents: stealing purses, consorting with criminals, and farting, to name a few. Now, Abra''s been chosen to participate in the prestigious Midwest Afghan Hound Specialty in Amish country . . . as a Worst-in-Show example of how not to train an Affie. Suddenly, a prize-winning pooch disappears, an owner is murdered, and a handler turns up dead. The sleepy community''s rustic charm is replaced by ruthless threats. Then Abra vanishes, too. Back at Whiskey''s office, suspicious e-mails circulate. Could her colleagues be involved in the canine crimes? Something doesn''t smell right—and this time it''s not the dog. Praise for the Whiskey Mattimoe Mystery series: "Sprightly humor, delightful characters (including the animals), and a nicely mixed-up plot make this an entertaining debut." —Library Review (starred review) ". . . a cozy series as satisfying as a fine single malt." —Publishers Weekly

Whiskey and Water
Coming right up - a fourth rollicking round of Whiskey Mattimoe! Summer brings some new and familiar faces to her quirky Michigan town. There''s MacArthur, the hunky Scotsman whose Glasgow real estate experience could make him an excellent agent at Whiskey''s office; self-help author and karma expert Fenton Flagg, who''s got Whiskey''''s libido boiling over; and her ex-husband Jeb Halloran, who can still send chills down Whiskey''s spine, when he''s not crooning pet lullabies. But steamy romance is impossible amid the shrill cries of Velcro, Whiskey''s new teacup-sized shitzapoo pup. Inexplicable sightings of Gill Gruen, the former mayor who drowned last winter, have the town on edge. But the doggy poop really hits the fan when Whiskey''s felonious Afghan hound discovers a murder scene on the shore of Lake Michigan. If it wasn''''t the riptide that killed Twyla Rendel, Whiskey''s high-risk tenant, who did?

It''s Christmas time in Magnet Springs, but nobody feels merry. The weather is unseasonably warm, tourism is at a record low, and Abra has run away again. Six months pregnant, Whiskey Mattimoe worries about her lack of maternal instinct. If she can''t handle an Afghan hound, how can she raise a child? When eight-year-old neighbor Chester asks for help warning his private school headmaster that trouble is brewing in the PTO, Whiskey has no idea she''s about to witness a grisly murder. Then Jeb arrives with an engagement ring--and a rescued French bulldog who thinks she''s a femme fatale. Arrows fly, and they don''t come from Cupid. Whiskey and Abra find themselves on the same side in a battle where the enemy is hard to target

Whiskey and Tonic

Whiskey and Tonic
Dealing with the first anniversary of her husband''s death would be much easier for Whiskey Mattimoe if the newly-crowned Miss Blossom wasn''t scheduled to die on the very same day. It seems everybody in Magnet Springs knew about the not-so-secret curse of the Miss Blossom pageant except for Whiskey-full-time real estate agent, part-time sleuth, long-suffering owner of Abra, her willful and sometimes felonious Afghan hound, and reluctant guardian for the soon-be-deceased Miss Blossom. Any hope that Abra has reformed her purse-snatching ways is dashed when the dog disappears with the emerald-laden Miss Blossom tiara, a priceless--albeit horrendously ugly and gawdy--heirloom insured for more than Whiskey''s net worth. Suddenly Whiskey finds herself tangled in a web of deceit and murder that spans centuries and involves her dearly departed husband, for better or worse. When the new Miss Blossom lands in the hospital and the former Miss Blossom turns up dead, Whiskey''s got to catch a cold-blooded killer before another generation of Magnet Springs'' royalty succumbs to a fate worse than wearing the Miss Blossom tiara.
