  Cat Got Your Cash: Kitty Couture Mystery #2, Julie Chase - NEW!   Pre-order, releases April 11.


    Lacy Marie Crocker’s whimsical pet couture has gained a following in New Orleans’s cozy Garden District, and word of mouth has traveled all the way to her favorite fashion designer, Annie Lane. Lacy’s thrilled when Annie schedules a private session at her home to discuss a companion line for her evening wear, but when Lacy arrives for the appointment, she enters the kitchen to two mewling Siamese cats--and one very dead Annie. 


 The Dead of Winter, (Piper Blackwell Mystery Book 1), Jean Rabe  


   In a deceptively peaceful county, a murderer hides in plain sight…
   Fifty-eight minutes into her first day on the job, twenty-three-year-old Sheriff Piper Blackwell is faced with a grisly murder—the victim artfully posed amid decorations on his lawn. Drawing on former military training, Piper must prove herself worthy of the sheriff’s badge, and that won’t be easy. Facing personal and professional threats, Piper has to weather a raging storm, keep the sheriff’s department from crumbling around her, and reel in a killer during the most brutal winter sleepy Spencer County, Indiana, has experienced. * Book 2, The Dead of Night, will be coming soon!

( I just had to include this as it has to be one of the wildest titles I've seen, and the cover pic is great!)

Josh and the Zombie Hunters survived some of the worst situations the zombie apocalypse has to offer in The Living Dead Boy and Lost in Texas. Now they’ll have to make hard choices and risk their very lives to Journey Across Zombie Texas.
    (Start the series with The Living Dead Boy, free.)


 This year marks the 125th anniversary of the Borden murders...


 Lizzie Borden, Zombie Hunter, C.A. Verstraete  


Every family has its secrets…
One hot August morning in 1892, Lizzie Borden picked up an axe and murdered her father and stepmother. Newspapers claim she did it for the oldest of reasons: family conflicts, jealousy and greed. But what if her parents were already dead? What if Lizzie slaughtered them because they’d become zombies?
    Thrust into a horrific world where the walking dead are part of a shocking conspiracy to infect not only Fall River, Massachusetts, but also the world beyond, Lizzie battles to protect her sister, Emma, and her hometown from nightmarish ghouls and the evil forces controlling them.
