Bruce DelReno, a retired mail carrier, plays a lot of golf. His wife, a nurse, still works. A lot. So, Bruce frequents the Mesquite Hills Golf Club in the fictitious town of Willowtree, Arizona.
One day he finds bones near the course. This discovery begins his pursuit of the killers of three individuals whose bodies were found nearby, but 30 years apart. This mild mannered ex-postman is emboldened by the police’s slow progress, and encouragement from his wife, and best friend, an Apache Indian. Bruce’s investigating centers on a group of locals who grew up in Willowtree together.
There is murder, humor, golf, food, and local color in this tale, as well as twists and some interesting characters.
Jules Hooker is doing her best to adjust to the new normal of a world without electricity, electronics, cars or the chance to return home. Stranded in the charming but provincial village of Chabanel wasn’t terrible until Jules discovers Aix-en-Provence and decides that the big city lights—even when they’ve gone out in the apocalypse—are much preferable to the countryside.
Of course with a big city comes big city crimes and when a fellow American is accused of murdering a popular pastry chef in Aix, Jules knows she has to help. Unfortunately tracking a dangerous killer when you don’t know the language—or the French people themselves—soon has Jules bumbling into one dangerous situation after another.

Fatal Feverfew is set in an isolated healing retreat in the west of England. Lucia, accompanied by her husband and cat, arrives there to recuperate from a recent illness only to find that she is suspected of poisoning their hostess. Lucia reluctantly takes on the role of detective and, with the help of the local doctor, succeeds in uncovering the true course of events and winning her husband’s respect. With echoes of the old-fashioned country house murder mystery, Fatal Feverfew is one of three medically themed novels written by Jennifer Barraclough in the 1980s but not published until thirty years later. Drawing on her experience in psychiatry and general practice, it takes a gently satirical approach to the serious themes of illness, marital disharmony and unnatural death.
A body has been dredged from the San Francisco Bay. Kate Connolly, pregnant and ready to pop, has reason to fear it may be her long lost brother-in-law.

Victims are multiplying, and time is running out. Keeping her family together and her newborn daughter safe will depend on Kate’s ability to track down a man who doesn’t want to be found and untangle a web of lies. Can she solve the case and clear her husband’s name before it’s too late?
