The first book in the Sophie Kimball Mystery series is called Booked 4 Murder. The book introduces to a divorced middle-aged mom who is working as an accountant clerk at a small police department in Minnesota. She’s not a cop, but her mother is convinced that she is the only one who could possibly solve the case of the cursed book in her small Arizona community. She flies her in to help her. Her mother is in a book club and four members have died from reading this book. Or so she thinks. Sophie takes it seriously though and soon discovers secrets hiding in plain sight in this small retirement community.

Ditched 4 Murder is the second book in the series and it sees back in Arizona for her 74-year old aunt’s wedding. Her aunt is putting her to work on the wedding with tons of task, but she gets a big one when a dead body turns up dead near her front door. Sophie will do her best to help with the investigation as long as her aunt doesn’t keep her too busy with the wedding planning.
