If You Like Summer Prescott Books, You’ll Love…

Summer Prescott Synopses: A Brew Most Bitter by Summer Prescott is the first book in the 33rd Street Roastery Cozy Mysteries series. Paige Palmer spent her entire adult life studying to earn her doctorate in Philosophy, only to be passed over for the job of her dreams. Seeking an escape from academia and her painful past, she takes a job as a barista at a quirky and cozy shop, The Roastery on 33rd, feeling a mysterious draw to the charming spot in the quaint New Hampshire town.

The wooden interior walls, worn with age and saturated with the rich aroma of past cappuccinos, beckon to unsuspecting pedestrians, enticing them to enter and indulge in a sip of decadence in the form of a strong brew.

But there are secrets in the Roastery that have been percolating for decades. When a body is discovered in a secret room in the building, Paige’s impatient and tough-as-nails boss becomes convinced that an in-house investigation is necessary to catch the culprit.

The team of would-be sleuths—Paige, the Roastery’s eccentric owner Margaret Hayward, and a ‘starving artist’ seeking distraction as he attempts to grind out the opening lines of his debut novel—team up to investigate, unaware of the danger they’re getting themselves into.

They need to hurry. As clear as the rising hum of an espresso machine at work, the clock ticks away precious seconds while a ruthless killer lurks in the shadows, ready to strike again.

Kidnappers and Killers is the first book in the Calgon Chronicles by Summer Prescott. Former Detective Chas Beckett is thrust into a web of international intrigue when his wayward brother, Reggie, goes missing. Did the shameless playboy escape from rehab, or was he kidnapped? Chas must find the answer while also navigating the complexities of moving his family from Florida to New York to take over his late father’s empire.

Meanwhile, in the sleepy beachside town of Calgon, Florida, Chas’ small-town Southern wife, Melissa, grapples with the daunting idea of relocating to the family’s grand estate. With two young children in tow, she feels like a misfit in a place where she knows no one. As she deals with the logistics of the move, Missy is confronted by a specter from the past, bent on revenge while her husband is away.

Determined not to burden Chas with yet another crisis, Missy, along with the help of dear friends, decides to tackle the mystery of her stalker and the local coroner’s woes. Diving headlong into a covert investigation, she finds herself in grave danger.

Has the amateur sleuth gone too far? What will Chas find when he returns to Calgon?

Discover the answers in this fast-paced tale of murder, mystery, and revenge.
