Interview: Cathy Ace Author of The Corpse with the Ruby Lips

Recently I had a chance to sit down and talk to Cathy Ace the author of The Cait Morgan Mysteries and the WISE Enquiries Agency Mysteries.  Thank you for taking the time to visit us Cathy!
What genre do you write?

I write crime fiction – on the broad spectrum of “cozy crime”, I’d say I write traditional mysteries rather than very cozy ones…think Agatha Christie and Ngaio Marsh. I always write “closed circle” mysteries, where only a small number of people could have “dunnit”.

How did you come to write crime fiction?

It’s what I grew up reading – my mum was a real Christie fan, so it’s no surprise I devoured her collection of books when I’d “outgrown” Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys.

Who is your favorite character to write about?

I write two distinctly different series of books – the WISE Enquiries Agency Mysteries (which feature a quartet of softly-boiled professional female investigators who run their business out of a converted barn in the grounds of a a stately home in Wales) and the Cait Morgan Mysteries, which feature a professor of criminal psychology with a love of all things foodie! Today I’m cheering the launch of the eighth book in my Cait Morgan Mystery series, and I have to admit I have a soft spot for Cait. She’s a lot like me – though I don’t have all her flaws….but then neither does she have all mine, so I suppose we’re even. Like me she was born and raised in Wales (she even grew up on the same street as me and when to the schools I attended, if you can believe that!) and, also like me, she migrated to Canada and lives in British Columbia. Another thing we have in common is our love of travel – each of Cait’s adventures takes place in a different country…and it seems she’s following in my footsteps in even this regard. In THE CORPSE WITH THE RUBY LIPS Cait finds herself in Budapest, Hungary – a stunning city with a dark history, where I have spent a good deal of time over the years.

Who inspires your books?

I’m fortunate that my mum is still alive, and she’s the person (in my heart) I write for. Still an
enthusiastic reader of traditional mysteries, she’s happy to give feedback during my writing process and proudly borrows all my books from her local library.

What do you do when you’re not writing?

To be honest, writing is a pretty all-consuming way of life, but, when I’m not at my desk I’m likely to be in the garden. I’m so fortunate to live on acreage, and my husband and I actively garden about three of our five acres, so there’s always something to do, whatever the season. I especially enjoy pulling up weeds while I plot, or thinking about my victim/s when I’m decapitating dandelions (which I only do when there are plenty of other blooms in the garden to keep the local bees happy!).

If you were stuck on a deserted island what three things would you take?

Oh heck – this is a tough one! First off, I’d like a huge supply of water-purifying tablets and meal-replacement bars etc. so I can be sure I’ll survive while I’m trying to work out how to collect water and food for the longer-haul, if that’s okay? Secondly, I suppose I’m not going to surprise anyone when I say my choice would be to have a laptop with a year’s-worth of battery, back-up disks and internet access (not so I could escape, but so I could write and research the books I’d have the peace and quiet to work on) or – failing that – an endless supply of pens and paper would do! Finally, I’d opt for a copy of the Complete Works of William Shakespeare – because most of the truths about the human condition are contained therein, and his work would inspire me while I sat alone contemplating the universe. 

Thank you,Paula
Thanks so much for having me along.  Your welcome Cathy thank you for stopping by Community Bookstop today!

Review: Not The Killing Type by: Lorna Barrett

Title: Not The Killing Type
Author: Lorna Barrett
Publisher: Berkley Prime Crime
Series: A Booktown Mystery #7
Pages: 309
Format: Hardcover
Source: Personal Purchase


It’s November in Stoneham, New Hampshire, and that means it’s time for the Chamber of Commerce elections. The race is already a bit heated, as the long-standing Chamber president is being challenged by a former lover—Tricia’s own sister, Angelica. Then local small business owner Stan Berry throws his hat in the ring.

Unfortunately, it’s not there for long when he’s found murdered in the Brookview Inn. The murder weapon is a brass letter opener belonging to the inn’s receptionist. Tricia knows there’s no way the receptionist is a killer. And when Angelica asks Tricia to help clear her name and win the election, she sees little choice except to start snooping.

She soon uncovers a ballot box full of lies and betrayals, and a chamber full of people who had grudges against the victim. But were they serious enough to lead to murder? And who truly had something to gain? Tricia will have to do some serious sleuthing before she pulls the lever on a killer.

My Thoughts:

This book follows Angelica and Tricia who are sisters as well book store owners Angelica a cookbook store, along with her cafe across the road and until recently has decided to run for President of the Chamber of Commerce.  She has decided she can help run the town better than the current President and her ex-boyfriend Robert Kelly whose a local realtor in town.  When Angelica throws her name into the running the Chamber of Commerce she finds she's not alone as Stan Berry who makes signs for local businesses has decided to run the town and has his own vision of the future of Stoneham.

Not long into the Chamber of Commerce election Tricia whose in desperate need of a bathroom stumbles across Stan Berry on the toilet dead.  Who killed him?  Does his death have anything to do with the election and if not why was he killed?  And who is Stan Berry? 

Tricia finds herself doing her own investigating after her sister seems to be suspect number 1, and in order to clear her sister's name she knows she has to learn as much as she can about Stan Berry. When a new comer to Stoneham arrives Stan Berry jr. also known as Will Berry Tricia's learn he has a son whom Stan never really took the time to get to know or even support.  What will Will do?  Is he like his father or does he have something to do with his father's demise?

We also learn more about Christopher Tricia's ex-husband.  Why he's around and what he really wants.  Christopher seems to have finally figured out how badly he screwed up when he went to find himself and ditched his life and his wife.  Does Tricia want him back or even want anything to do with him?  While all this is going on Tricia's ex-employee Ginny is getting married to Antonio who works at the local Brookview Inn.  Will Ginny and Antonio have the wedding of their dreams or will the death of Stan Berry mess up their beautiful wedding?

I love this series maybe because I'm from NH or maybe it's the descriptions given to Stoneham by Lorna Barrett she really brings you in wanting to see how everyone is doing from the last time we've heard from them.  This book didn't disappoint it welcomed you in like you are just another shop owner catching up with Tricia and her sister Angelica.  I can't wait to see what is next in this series.

Maggie, a heavenly curator of unspoken thoughts, is content to do her job while she waits for her turn in mortality. When Eric, her beholden, shows interest in the new girl at work, Maggie’s curiosity for the wonders of love and life cause her to forsake the rules in search of answers. But meddling in mortal affairs has consequences that Maggie could never have imagined…

My Thoughts:
This book was given to me for a fair and honest review by Cedar Fort.  The thoughts expressed here are my own and no way reflect Aaron Blaylock or Cedar Fort.  In this book we follow Maggie and other curators who shelve thoughts of their charges while waiting for their mortality.  Her charge is a guy named Eric who suffered a loss of April and has had trouble getting over it.

This book was definitely an interesting look into other thoughts and what could happen to them if someone else was watching over them and what happens when we die.  Definitely a great book for people really into religion and what happens above us.  Can't wait to see what Aaron Blaylock offers us next!

Can Miss Christmas find her spirit again?

After a devastating betrayal, Claire Branham packs up the pieces of her life, along with a twenty-million-dollar secret, and moves to Eternity Springs. She opens a specialty shop—Forever Christmas—and, with the help of a surprise romance with the town’s sexy new handyman, Claire’s heart begins to heal. Until her past comes knocking…

Jax Lancaster never questioned the need to abandon his career as a Navy submariner in order to care for his young son in the wake of his ex-wife’s death. Desperate to help with this loss, Jax straps on a tool belt to give Nicholas the one thing he wants: A life in Eternity Springs. What Jax never expected to find a second chance at love with a fascinating woman for whom Christmas has become a business. But when the truth about Claire threatens their newfound happiness, can Jax prove to her that in Eternity Springs, the spirit of Christmas is real. . .and will last a lifetime?

My Thoughts:

This book opens up with Claire whose getting ready for Christmas with her fiance but gets the shock of her life when she finds he's married to someone else, she uproots her life to Eternity Springs to work on not being against Christmas forever.  Clare is determined to find a way past Landon the looser Lawyer.  Will she find it in Eternity Springs?

Then there is Jax Lancaster whose recently moved to Eternity Springs to pick up his son for a day camp after the death of his ex-wife, he vows to do anything he can to give his son a good life.  Jax is also trying to find his way after his last relationship fell apart and now he's learning to be a father on top of it.

Both Claire and Jax seems to have so many problems they have to work through.  Will their differences keep them apart or can they work through it?  I loved this story and found myself loving this small town romance which reminds me of Sherryl Woods's books as well as Debbie Macomber and parts of Jill Shalvis books too.  I think lovers of small town romances will find themselves drawn in and having hard time leaving Eternity Springs

The Winter Market in the French Quarter is in full swing, but murder isn’t taking a holiday in the latest from the New York Times bestselling author of Parchment and Old Lace...
The holidays are a busy time for scrapbook shop owner Carmela Bertrand—but not so hectic that she doesn’t have time to enjoy browsing the booths at the Winter Market with her best friend Ava. The last thing the ladies expect to see is a thrashing man stabbed by a serving fork, dying in front of them.
The victim is loathed restaurant critic Martin Lash, who posted his scathing reviews on the Glutton for Punishment website. And the prime suspect is New Orleans restauranteur Quigg Brevard—who was seen giving the critic a tongue-lashing minutes before someone stuck a fork in him. An old flame of Carmela, Quigg asks for her help, which does not please her current beau, Detective Edgar Babcock, to say the least.
Before her relationship is the next victim, Carmela needs to find a murderer who had no reservations about punishing the culinary curmudgeon...

My Thoughts:

This book takes place in the New Orleans where we are with Ava and Carmela who are walking around Winter Market. There they witness a heated exchange between Martin Lash a food critic whose been known for writing less than bad reviews of good food.  When he winds up dead with a fork in his neck stumbling at Eva and Carmela's feet.  Next thing Carmela knows is that Quigg asks for her help in clearing his name before he winds up arrested for the murder.  The more Carmela digs the more possible suspects appear.  From the editor of the Glutton for Punishment website who got stuck with Martin Lash and seems to have no love lost over it! To other restaurant owners who have had their restaurants ripped apart due to Lash's harsh reviews.  Who killed Martin Lash and why?

This book was a great look life in New Orleans, meeting interesting people and watch Carmela investigate to find out what happened to Martin Lash.  This book really pulled you in wanting you to figure out who killed him and why.  I loved going on the adventure with them.  The women who wrote this book were great at this story of following the adventure of Carmela it was a real treat to get to read this and review it.  I can't wait to see what is next for Carmela and Ava!

Review: Putting on The Witch by: Jim & Joyce Lavene

Series: Retired Witches Mystery #3
Pages: 304
Format: Paperback

In the latest mystery from the bestselling authors of Looking for Mr. Good Witch, the retired witches of Wilmington, North Carolina, are ready to kick up their heels...

With their coven’s spell book still missing, Molly and Elsie—along with their ghostly friend Olivia, her daughter Dorothy, and her boyfriend Brian—are all on edge, especially now that Dorothy’s infamously wicked father is back in the picture. So when they receive an invitation to an exclusive Witches Ball, the ladies jump at the chance to dress up and have some fun.
The castle locale is spectacular and the party is hopping, but the festivities come to a swift end when a member of the Grand Council of Witches is murdered. With the whole place on lock down, the coven is determined to find the cunning killer, even with an angry council and a real Spanish Inquisitor breathing down their necks...

My Thoughts:

This book was bittersweet with the death of Joyce and then Jim Lavene.  What they offered up was incredible and so worthy of their other books.  In this book it's Brian's birthday and his family is putting on an elaborate birthday party to witch the coven gets invited.  Dorothy and Olivia are also interrupted from everything when Drago, Dorothy's father shows up wanting to get to know her better.  Of course the coven doesn't know what to make of Drago who Olivia has stated is pure evil and not to be trusted.

At the ball a Council member is murdered and the castle gets put on lockdown spell wise so the witch-hunter can find the murderer.  Unfortunately for Molly she listened to the dying words of the council member and the other members want those words to find out what was said.  After convincing Antonio the wit-hunter that the old methods won't work anymore they work together to figure out who killed the council member and why?  Will Antonio and Molly figure out in time?  Or will they let a witch loose to kill again?

This book was incredible as is the whole series.  I loved seeing the coven form and work together, and how they were stronger with certain things happening in Elsie and Molly's life.  Between Elsie's boyfriend Larry the werewolf and Molly's amulet they old timers really have something to show the young witches.  I like how they stood up to the council when they could and even changed the opinions of a witch-hunter.  I'm also seeing how this series isn't anything without an appearance by the Bone Man with a cryptic message.  I wonder if we will see it again?

I was sad at the end knowing this is the last book Jim and Joyce wrote and will wonder if the kids will continue the series and the future of any of their books?  This series is by far my favorite and I am happy knowing I can always re-read them when I want to go back to Smuggler's Arcane!
