With the Temple of Indra's Curse #KindleUnlimited#Sundayreads #Mystery #Mustread @Solsticepublish Muskoka, Canada, Blood Moon, May 2003, Stepping out of my darkened bedroom and wandering passed the grandfather clock in the hall, I waited for my eyes to adjust before creeping down the lake house stairs. Through the oversized window in the living room, I could see a large red moon hovering in the sky. The evergreen trees and murky marsh reflected eerily under its reddish glow, offering up the illusion that the marsh ran red with blood.
A gust of wind rattled the glass, prompting me to tighten the belt on my grey velvet robe. The thought of being trapped in the deep, dark abyss that lurked below that sheen surface of red was a recurring nightmare of mine …an odd phobia for someone who’d practically grown up on the lake.
The steps behind me creaked and I swung around to see a shadow at the top of the stairs.
“Sophia, is the boogeyman after you?”
My throat relaxed. My great-grandmother, Ver…

In honor of Mystery Thriller Week, I thought we’d discuss the genre I love reading and writing: MYSTERY. Cozy, Suspense, Thriller, doesn’t matter, these intricate stories all have a similar set of components, including but not limited to a problem solver, a red herring or three and of course a solution. For me, the key to a good mystery lies in the plot. Does it have twists and turns? Does it shock you into suspending your belief? And does the author dole out just the right amount of twists at the right time?

Reading a good mystery is like peeking through a keyhole. It’s all about perspective—you are limited to what you see. Not to mention, you only see what someone (the author) wants you to. The suspect is holding a knife over a dead body. Now you’re close to solving the murder right? But just one shift in that room and/or view, and you can see the clue in a different light. There’s a gun to the person’s head and they were forced to pick up the knife. Oh the twists to be had!

The Time Traveling Bibliophile Series: What's it all about?

The Temple of Indra books center on a librarian, Sophia Marcil, who can travel through time compliments of her grandmother’s cursed sapphire ring, as well as an old spell book uncovered in the library where she works. On her first trip into the 19th century, Sophia believes she’s being forced into an eccentric millionaire’s dinner theater but a hidden diary, a secret passage and a whispered conversation reveal to her that the role of a princess is not all fun and games. Book Two takes our beloved bibliophile to a stately home in 1920, where she discovers a hidden chapter in her own family story. In an effort to re-write the past, things get foggy in a London bookshop; long-lost relative’s re-surface, and as a family gathering rapidly goes awry, Sophia ricochets back to the present. The page turns for Sophia in book three. Her nemesis is six feet under and she’s off to return the cursed sapphire to the temple, so she can settle into the next chapter of her life—a new bookshop and wedde…

#Cozytimetravelmystery #TimetravelingBibliophile

Sophia Marcil closed the book on magic long ago, when she married Cullen O’Kelley and opened her beloved shop in Dublin. She’s taking life one page at a time until an old acquaintance darkens her doorstep and reminds her of a grim prediction made sixteen years ago—one that involves her daughter, her grimoire, and that threatens time travel once more. Since cursing Sophia more than five-hundred years ago, the witch has become disillusioned with life and she’s ready to return to 1494, where her enmity began. Sadly, her attempt to open the portal goes up in smoke, taking Sophia with it. Cullen believes his beloved time-traveling bibliophile could still be alive, but a local historian warns she may still be in jeopardy. The answer to her whereabouts lies in a fifteenth-century castle—all he has to do is navigate time …
