Mystery at Clareton Manor by Kathleen Newberg

Mystery at Clareton Manor by Kathleen Newberg
A Molly May Mystery (1st in series)

At scenic Clareton Manor, a bucolic South Carolina wellness spa, a weekend of relaxation and rejuvination comes to a deadly halt for one guest. Harvey Ruger was a pain in everybody's neck—arrogant, self-serving and apparently determined to interfere in the sea of tranquility and bliss the myriad guests were anticipating. Which is probably why somebody killed him.

The spa's owner, Erika Bischoff, had invited an old friend, retired detective Molly May, for a special getaway to soothe the soul—unfortunately now it's becoming a working weekend. But well-seasoned and experienced Molly knows her way around crime scenes and immediately spots some clues apparently overlooked by the local law. But with so many suspects and a growing list of motives, the dark secrets at the heart of the crime may be shared by more than just one among the spa's well-heeled guests.

A Frank DiSalvo Mystery (1st in series)

A series of perversely arranged murders seems to be connected to the wealthy friends and alumni of the elite Eastern Friends School in Pennsylvania. English teacher Maxwell Hunter has a knack for understanding literature's mysteries with all their red herrings and odd clues, and he offers his unofficial help to the investigating detective. It's an offer that the tough, no-nonsense Lieutenant Frank DiSalvo finally accepts when clues at the crime scene point to an intricate cat and mouse game. The killer is playing with bits and pieces of classic literature: a coin found in a dead woman's mouth; ashes marking another victim's face; a yearbook picture marked with a green dollar sign.

Shocking as the crimes may be, the truth proves far more explosive as Hunter realizes the lessons he's taught in class for years are now being played out in spilled blood.

The Poetry of Murder by Bernadette Steele

The Poetry of Murder by Bernadette Steele
A Geneva Anderson Mystery (1st in series)

Life for aspiring poet Geneva Anderson—working on her craft out of International House, the University of Chicago's creative melting pot—suddenly takes an ominous turn when she finds the body of her beloved aunt Victoria, brutally murdered. Geneva is stunned upon learning she is the sole heir to her aunt's million-dollar fortune. How did she get that kind of money on her salary as director of International House? And was it this secret fortune that got her killed?

When Geneva's massive inheritance makes her the primary suspect in the case, she starts digging into her aunt's past and finds a tangle of blackmail, suicide and madness—and another victim. But to clear her name, she must find the one person who wanted Victoria dead for reasons that had nothing to do with money—and everything to do with revenge.
