A Death In The Afternoon – The Southermost Mystery Series

At twenty-four years old, I was dying a slow and painful death.

My tombstone would read:

Here lies Mallory Hemingway. Gone Too Soon. Died of Boredom.

I scrolled past the government jobs, the work from home jobs, and the delivery jobs hoping to find that gem that stood out, when suddenly I sat straight up, the back of my chair bouncing back and forth like an overzealous jack in the box.

Wanted: Night-time Caretaker for Hemingway Home in Key West, FL.

Responsibilities: Live on-site for security purposes, locking gates, ensuring house is properly secured, tending to the many cats that live on the property, and being a point of contact for police or emergency personnel if needed.

Salary: $25,000 a year. Room and board included.

Ok, so the salary wasn’t much, but it was just me. And if I wasn’t paying for room and board, then how much money did I really need?

I googled Key West taking in the size of the island, the culture that oozed personality, and the tight, narrow streets that cut through the main areas.  I wouldn’t need a car to navigate such a tiny place, so I could sell mine and use the money to help me move. Real estate there was astronomical, so not having to pay for a place to stay would give me the room in my budget that I needed in order to write during the day.

It didn’t seem like they’d need me to do much, so I was basically being paid to sleep. I could get up early and write every morning, just like Hemingway did. Surely, my last name and distant relative status would be a mark in my favor.

My hand hovered over the receiver of the Harmony Times phone, when I stopped cold. What was I doing? I couldn’t break up with Andrew, leave my parents, and move to the southernmost point of the United States, could I?

Find out if she will in the newest cozy mystery sensation, A Death In The Afternoon.

Alex knows one thing for sure:

Something creepy happened on that abandoned stretch of desert highway.

When Alex Thompson is pulled over by a squad car in the middle of nowhere, the police officer acts downright bizarre. She’s positive something’s not right about the whole situation.

Years later, a mass grave is discovered in that same area, and she knows she came close to being one of the victims. So why did the killer let her go?

Cody Oliver is a small-town detective. His department can’t handle a case this huge. When a mysterious woman, Alex, appears from the past, it stirs something in him.

Could a chance encounter a million years ago have been that important? Could a short, random meeting he’d dismissed as soon as it ended be the key to stopping a serial killer?

Give me a “hell yeah” and pick up this book with one click, because if Cody and Alex can’t unravel this demented mystery, the desert will continue to fill up with bodies.

I was born an Elite and forged by the king!

I’m ruthless and soulless, a bastard to fear!

I’m merciless, I’m fierce, and trained to kill.

I’m broken, I’m evil, not worthy of her love.

My Baby girl has a halo; she’s truly an angel.

I always knew she’s my soul mate, and yet I force myself to wait.

This wild need compels me to claim her and drives me insane.

My heart aches, my soul rages, and I refuse to have her near.

I can’t crown her my queen; thus, the kingdom is not at peace.

The danger and intrigue shroud the Elite!

The wrath of war is in the air, and a woman’s scorn a power to fear.

Lady Yvette Kaiser

Book Cover

A 1920s showgirl will teach the gangsters who destroyed her family a lesson in blood…by spilling theirs.

Enjoy the first 5 chapters of this book!


Fans of The Godfather and HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, as well as those who love historical fiction with a twist, will love this feminist take on Prohibition gangster history!

In the 1920s, a woman’s place was in the home, or in supporting roles in the workforce, or, if you’re 21-year-old Mia Angela Scalisi, on stage inside glamorous supper clubs and theater stages, living the high-life with the world at your fingertips.

It is definitely not calling the shots for a blossoming bootlegging operation, or ordering hits on your enemies. That is, unless, you’re Mia Angela Scalisi…and tragedy forces you into your biggest, most challenging role yet: Mafia princess.

Content to turn a blind-eye to big brother Nick’s criminal dealings, Mia, an orphan and former gambling-hall hustler, loves fancy clothes, loud parties, high-stakes poker games, and New York Sours with family friends Al Capone and Johnny Torrio. She carries big dreams of fame and fortune, and gracing the silver screens as the Italian Lillian Gish.

Her plans never included bloody retribution.

But tragedy and betrayal have a way of striking at the worst times, and her Sicilian blood demands three things: omertà, loyalty, and vengeance.

Whether or not she can rise to the challenge in a world she never wanted to be a part of will determine whether or not she survives.

Because when you step into the criminal underworld, all bets are off.

Join Mia Scalisi in this page-turning, unputdownable first installment of the SCALISI FAMILY series set inside the glitz and glamour of the Roaring Twenties!
