Here is some very long-in-coming, absolutely wonderful news in the Cozy Mystery world for all of us who follow Alice Kimberly‘s Haunted Bookshop Mystery Series. Penelope Thornton-McClure is slated to take up her sleuthing again this year. However, this time, the books will be released under Alice Kimberly’s Cleo Coyle persona.
For those of you who are fans of the Haunted Bookshop Mystery Series, you already know Pen has been on a type of “sleuthing sabbatical” since way back in 2009. That’s a whole lot of time to keep us waiting, but it will be worth it! I’m guessing that you are as excited as I am that Penelope (and Jack Shepard, her bookshop’s 1940s PI) will be returning to us!
That’s right! Cleo Coyle will be releasing The Ghost and the Bogus Bestseller later this year. I can’t wait!
P.S. Thank you, MJ, for telling me about this great news.
