Nancy McGovern's popular cozy mystery series is now available in a box set containing all three exciting stories!

Get to know Aurora Sparks & Joy Russo as they try to figure out whether they can coexist without murdering each other. After all, it's not easy living with a complete stranger, especially when she is your polar opposite!

From Book 1, Death & Decluttering:
Joy Russo loves chaos. From her life as a busy reporter to her brawling, coffee-obsessed Italian family, there's nothing she loves more than her messy, little life. Then the weird, slightly out-of-this-world Aurora Sparks arrives, whose life seems to revolve around creating order out of chaos.

The two of them have somehow ended up as roommates in the small Upstate New York town of Bent River, and the old adage that says "opposite attract" couldn't be further from the truth! Sparks fly & tempers flare as each young lady tries to deal with the other's eccentricities while not compromising her own values. Much easier said than done.

But when a man is found dead and Joy's father is the prime suspect, the two must put aside their differences if they want to help him. They soon find that Joy's tough, no-nonsense demeanor and Aurora's ordered, structured nature perfectly complement each other when it comes to ferreting out clues. And, thankfully so, as the danger threatens to escalate unless they can sort through the facts and solve this mystery in a hurry!

From Book 2, Alibis & Arranging:
When Aurora & Joy are invited to attend a dinner party at the estate of Bent River's richest and oldest widow, Hilda Braithwhite, they aren't sure what to expect. Aurora assumes the old woman simply wants to gossip about the recent murder that occurred in town, in which the two young ladies played a major role in solving. Joy, on the other hand, has spent years offering to ghostwrite Hilda's memoir, and is hoping to schmooze enough during their time together to finally get the answer she desires.

But the night goes in a very different direction and, just days later, Aurora finds that she's the one who's been offered a new job: to clean out Hilda Braithwhite's estate after her death.

But death isn't exactly the right word. Aurora thinks murder is more appropriate, and she intends to prove it. But, first, she has to figure out how that little statue of a puppy ties into it all...

From Book 3, Suspects & Sorting:
Recently sober after decades spent numbing his emotions stemming from the premature death of his one true love, Joy's uncle, Beppe, finally seemed to be in a good place. But life has a way of throwing you a curveball when you least expect it. And Beppe certainly wasn't expecting to be murdered.

The news is difficult for everyone to hear, especially Joy, who is immediately suspected of committing the crime simply because she was the last person known to be with Beppe. Of course, Joy's family means everything to her and everyone knows what a ridiculous supposition that is. Everyone, that is, other than the new chief of police.

To Aurora, it is unclear whether Chief Finley truly believes this theory or if he is simply trying to stir up the case and those involved. But, either way, one thing is for certain: his harshness and lack of empathy will not be tolerated. Her best friend should be mourning the loss of her beloved uncle in peace, not having to defend herself against a ridiculous accusation.

So, it looks like Aurora is going to have to step in and get to the bottom of things... again!
