Treat yourself to a book this Halloween

It’s that time of year – beautiful fall foliage to enjoy, apples to pick, and Halloween-themed stories to read. Here are a couple for you to check out:

The Ginseng Conspiracy by Susan Bernhardt

the Ginseng Conspiracy-medium

On her way to attend a Halloween Ball, Kay Driscoll, a newcomer to town, witnesses the murder of a local professor. When the official coroner’s report rules the cause of death to be accidental and the community accepts the judgement, Kay decides to uncover the truth for herself. Through her personal investigations, Kay exposes a complex conspiracy, woven deep within the thriving local ginseng industry, that involves some of the more prominent figures and families of Sudbury Falls.

With her new friends, the free-spirited herbalist Deirdre and the untamed modern woman Elizabeth, Kay discusses new clues over tea and pastries at Sweet Marissa’s Patisserie, their crime-fighting headquarters. As Kay gets closer to the heart of the conspiracy, additional murders happen in quick succession. Before long, Kay learns that the villains are gunning for her, too. Phil, her musically talented but preoccupied husband, determined to keep her safe, withholds from her the one thing she needs most: the truth.

I read this cozy mystery and truly enjoyed it! You can find it on MuseItUp Publishing, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and iBooks.

And for Young Adult readers, we have:

Dream Shade by Heather Fraser Brainerd

 As if high school wasn’t tough enough, sophomore Sarah Pasmore has one extra little problem: ghosts have started appearing to Sarah and they seem to want something from her. With help from her brainy best friend, as well as a few new friends (including the hottest guy in school), Sarah must solve the mystery of what the spirits want in order to put them back to rest. To complicate matters further, a more evil spirit will go to great lengths to make sure this doesn’t happen. As they investigate the past to unravel this supernatural mystery, the teens learn a lesson in the powers of friendship and love.

Dream Shade, a YA paranormal mystery, is available at 80% off through MuseItUp Publishing and Amazon during the entire month of October.

Pick up both books, curl up with your e-reader, and have a cozy Halloween!
