Murder on a Monday

Rachel Mathews and Donna O’Hare, friends and owners of a magazine for small business in Victoria, BC, are horrified when they stumble across the body of Jody Smythe sprawled in the stairwell of their office building in the middle of the day. Jody was manager of the seniors’ residence next door, and someone has cut her throat. The police are checking everywhere, but can’t find the murder weapon or anyone with a motive for killing the young woman. Two more deaths surface as Rachel seeks for an explanation, using help from a former hippy, two elderly women, and an actuary. A story of deception, theft, adultery, and a mother’s twisted love unfolds as she plunges deeper and deeper into the mystery. Will the case be solved before Donna’s attraction to a prime suspect proves fatal? For anyone who is the target of a physical assault, psychological self-defense is a great tool and Rachel learns how useful it can be.





Hi Readers: I live in British Columbia near the ocean, and I’m a blogger and write fiction, and also write blogs for other people. My children’s books are sports mysteries for ages 8-12 and I write murder mysteries for adults.

My new cozy murder mystery, Murder On A Monday, published by High Tide Publishing, Inc., is available now on Amazon as a paperback. The story is set in Victoria, BC, Canada, and will appeal to readers who love to follow investigations undertaken by a gifted amateur who struggles to overcome her fears and pursue a killer. I am now working on the sequel called (you guessed it) Murder on a Tuesday.

The Vikings Sports Mysteries for children are stand-alone books, but the same three children are in each Viking Club mystery: “Something’s Missing” (hockey), and “Someone’s Trapped” (soccer), and more to come!

In my kid’s blog, I write about what parents can do to help children enjoy and improve their reading, and why mystery stories are an important aid to learning. In my blog for adults, I write about writing, mystery stories, and observations on life. Come by for a visit and leave your comments at
