Romantic Cozy Mystery Book Celebration

lighthouse secretwebA ROMANTIC COZY MYSTERY: In The Amelia Moore Detective Series, you learn all about the life of Amelia Moore and her partner, Rick Bonito. You learn what kind of people they truly are through their bucket lists and what they’re like deep down inside. You even see a slow romance develop between them in each story until the day they finally tie the knot and are married. Now this detective agency will solve new cases as a married couple.

In the Amelia Moore Detective Series, the author delivers a delightful, fairly fast-paced tale in the pursuit of a missing person, for that’s what Amelia’s agency specializes in. This time it is personal, as Rick’s Uncle Antonio Bonito dies in suspicious circumstances. But what do lighthouses have to do with his disappearance? The reader gets a brief education into lighthouses, their importance in the past and the interesting uses they have today.” – Sandra Olshaski, Library of Clean Reads

In The Lighthouse Secret, Amelia Moore is the founder of the Moore Detective Agency and specializes in missing persons. With the help of her partner, Rick Bonito, the business is flourishing. Now Amelia and Rick are newly weds and just beginning life as a married couple, which gives them a new insight in their relationship.

In fact, their new assignment is more personal. Rick Bonito’s uncle supposedly drowned five years ago and his body was never found, but something did not seem right about the report. Uncle Antonio was an excellent swimmer. His disappearance seems quite suspicious to Rick’s father. He never felt the complete truth had come out about his brother. It is now up to Amelia and Rick to find out the truth about his uncle.

Amelia’s and Rick’s fresh marriage adds a new dynamic to their case—what happened to his uncle five years ago? Every scrap of information seems to increase their danger as a power hungry lawyer and a mysterious private detective are lurking in the background. The story was well told with surprises and complications threatening their search for the truth. The ending was a complete surprise.” – Andean White, Author

Shadows In My Room, Three Children’s Bedtime Stories On Audio

A children’s picture book was released some time ago and was so well received that it has now been made into an audiobook. It is for ages three to eight. Most people listen to audiobooks for entertainment, but audiobooks have come a long ways. We can now share a children’s story with our child. When a narrator reads a book, it’s easy to picture the characters interacting with one another, bringing the story to life as your child listens to the dynamics of the narrator. They can easily hear the anxiety or humor in the person’s voice.

Red Mountain Shadows Publishing presents Bedtime Stories by Author Linda Weaver Clarke. With narrator, Heidi Allred, she draws your child in and helps him or her feel part of the adventure.

“It is a sweet book which I think my grandkids would enjoy. It is written for younger children and shows the trust between mother and child.” –Sonja Nishimoto, Sunnie Reviews

Shadows webBedtime Stories: In each of these stories, a mother helps her little girl understand her fears at night. Shadows In My Room: Kayla sees shadows in her room that disturb her. Her mother answers all her questions about each shadow that she points to, and helps her to calm down and go to sleep. What’s That Noise: Amber hears noises that disturb her such as the wind and thunder. Her mother teaches Amber to use her imagination by turning something fearful into something fun. I’m Not Sleepy: Cason finds every way possible to get out of going to bed such as needing a drink of water or having his mother read a book to him. Each time, he tells her that he isn’t sleepy.

Inishowen Cailín, a reviewer from Ireland, wrote:

“This is a lovely book for your child to listen to at night especially if they are in any way anxious at bedtime. The stories talk through some of the most common fears little children have; scary shadows and noises, and explains them away in a cute and fun way. I also loved how the mother sang a little hymn to lull the child to sleep at the end of each story, as a signal that it was time to sleep. I can imagine that with repeated listening a child would naturally pick up on this cue as well.”

Was it difficult to listen to this audiobook without a picture book? Donna Cochran says:

“Not having the book to look at the pictures, I wasn’t sure about how much I would like it. But I’m happy to say that I was impressed! With the author’s words and the voices of the narrator, I didn’t need the book. The words flowed with emotion and fun. I look forward to more from Linda Weaver Clarke and Heidi Allred.”

This book is available on audio at Audible.com, Amazon.com, and iTunes.

“True to form, the author evokes a certain feeling for the country in which the mystery takes place. In this case, Mexico, replete with Mexican food, hot peppers, fiestas, and mariachi bands playing folk music!” –Library of Clean Reads

In The Missing Heir, Dell Murphy has passed on and left a fortune to his nephew. He wants his nephew to continue his work at the orphanage in Mexico, but there is one problem. Neal Woods is missing! If Amelia and Rick can’t find him soon, the fortune will be turned over to Dell’s brother and sister who intend to close down “Uncle Dell’s Orphanage.” If that happens, where will the children go?

“Ms Clarke’s gift for dialogue is wonderful, and I appreciated the glimpse of Mexico she provides. It’s refreshing to me to discover a “cozy mystery”, with two likeable, romantic characters who enjoy each other (without having to delve into explicit sex scenes) and are able to solve a mystery together. It is a book I am happy to be able to recommend and share with teens as well as adults of all ages!” – Sherril S. Cannon

“Clarke brings the lushness of Ireland to life through her intricate descriptions and wonderful storytelling. This picturesque backdrop is the perfect setting for Clarke`s warm and captivating tale. The characters were enchanting, and the plot held me captive throughout. I enjoyed getting into this mystery. It was loads of fun unravelling it all. At the same time, Clarke made me feel as if I were part of it all. I also love the depths and hidden aspects of Rick’s character. He was so much more than I’d originally thought he would be. I couldn`t get enough of him.

As far as narrators go, Lehman was a fantastic choice for this novel (and series). She really brings the characters to life. I’ve enjoyed each novel I’ve heard her narrate, but she really blew this one out of the park.” – Jonel Boyko, Confessions of a Bibliophile

In an Oyster Shell – It’s a sweet romantic mystery with plenty of action. Another great book in the series. The Pearls – I am quickly falling for this series. It is so fun and is full of good clean mysteries.” –Writing Pearls Book Reviews

Mystery on the Bayou is a Fun New Cozy

BayouwebIt’s time to get cozy once again with the Amelia Moore Detective Series. Louisiana, the land of bayous and gumbo! Crawdads, jambalaya, swamps, alligators, and plenty of Spanish moss hanging from the trees! Mystery on the Bayou, book six, blends a nice balance of mystery, intrigue, romance, and humor. Amelia Moore and Rick Bonito, two private eyes and a newly married couple, specialize in missing persons.

“Mystery on the Bayou by Linda Weaver Clarke is a fun book with several surprises. It is an engaging, well-written story that moves the reader at a comfortable pace. If you like intrigue and mystery—this is a must read. The freshly married Amelia Moore and Rick Bonita are nearing the end of their honeymoon when they take a job to find an adopted son that may have a life threatening condition. Stealing a line from the book, “Well, we have a missing boy, gang members, a murder, a kidnapping, and Tom’s kayak floating down the bayou.” And that’s just for starters.” –Brad Andes, Author

 

Most mysteries delve into crime and “who-done-it,” but this series investigates the whereabouts of a missing person. Their cases have put them in some dangerous situations, but they always solve the case.

In Mystery on the Bayou, Amelia is approached by a woman who is concerned about the son she gave up for adoption sixteen years ago. Millie has been having nightmares that make her fear he is in danger. She petitioned the court to view the sealed records but was refused. Will Amelia and Rick be able to convince the courts to help them? If her son is in danger, will they get there in time?

 

“I thoroughly enjoyed Ms. Clarke’s new cozy mystery story of Rick and Amelia (Book 6) including the fact that Amelia is now married to Rick and struggling to remember she is now Amelia Moore Bonito! Dedicated to “all of those who have had to deal with Marfan’s Syndrome”, the story centers on a search for an adopted child who is potentially suffering from this rare genetic disorder which can result in optical and cardiovascular problems and may be life-threatening. The story takes us into the Louisiana bayous, introduces us to Cajun food including crayfish, describes alligator life in the deep south, and even teaches us some interesting self-defense maneuvers for women!” –Sherrill Cannon, Author

 

As you follow Amelia in search for a missing teenager, you will also learn about Marfan’s Syndrome. You will find that it’s not as rare as many think. Author Linda Baten Johnson wrote: “Linda Weaver Clarke has done it again. She always provides a sweet romantic story, but one that teaches too. The subject matter in this book is Marfan’s Syndrome and the story is set partially in Louisiana. I lived there for several years and Clarke’s description of the bayous and the food made me want to return.”

When Mrs. Brody hires Amelia and Rick to find her missing brother, they find themselves in Bali, Indonesia. They are mystified why her brother quit his job, put his home up for sale, and ran off to this mysterious and exotic island without telling a soul.

“Linda Weaver Clarke paints a beautiful portrait of the island of Bali. In fact, she made me wish I were there. I’ve read her books before and she has a wonderful way of drawing the reader right into her stories. Amelia and Rick were very realistic to me. I thought Rick’s Bucket List gave readers a great insight into his character. Throughout the book you couldn’t help pulling for these two to realize they were more than co-workers. The mystery and romance flowed beautifully through each page.” –Socrates Book Reviews

Does this cozy have enough action to keep your interest? This is what Library of Clean Reads wrote: “This is a cozy mystery, but there is also suspense, danger, and romance.

IT’S TIME TO GET COZY! Her Lost Love is the newest mystery in the Amelia Moore Detective Series.

Most mysteries are a “who-done-it,” but this cozy mystery series specializes in missing persons. Amelia Moore, founder of the Moore Detective Agency, and Rick Bonito always solve their case. Her Lost Love is the fifth mystery in the Amelia Moore Detective Series. There is a nice blend of mystery, romance, and humor.

Lost Love webI’ve read this series from the beginning and come to know and love Amelia and Rick more with each book. These are some of my favorite cozy mysteries and I know exactly what I’m getting with them–a fun, unique mystery that isn’t too intense, mingled with a sweet, clean romance. I think Amelia and Rick compliment each other perfectly, both professionally and personally. Of course, since I’m a romantic at heart, I love the romantic moments in the story.” –Katie Watkins, Katies Clean Book Collection

I love long-lost love stories,” wrote Melanie Valderrama of Mel’s Shelves. “So this one grabbed my interest right from the beginning. What I enjoy about this series is that there’s always more to each case than they originally think. This case was no different. I love how their personal relationship is progressing and am excited to see what happens next. Rick is so irresistible and romantic and he steps up big time in this book. I’m definitely looking forward to reading more!

Each novel in this mystery series has enough twists to keep the reader guessing. “Her Lost Love” not only has a case for Amelia and Rick to solve, but the romance is intriguing. Library of Clean Reads wrote: “This is a fast-paced, creative mystery that has at its heart crime, archaeological digs, romance, ‘good guys and bad’ that combine to make an interesting, quick read.

The books in the Amelia Moore Detective Series are The Bali Mystery, The Shamrock Case, The Missing Heir, and The Mysterious Doll.
