Hello there and I appreciate all the inquiries regarding what is next for Chari Davenport Mysteries!

The year of 2020 was certainly a challenge for all of us. I am still diligently working on the first novel in the second series – The Seagoing Mysteries with the first novel titled ‘The Voyage and the Library.’

Audio book - Summer 2021 will be filled with sun and fun as the third novel in the Party Mystery Series, ‘The Birthday Party: Family Reunions Can Be Murder!’ becomes an audio book complete with different character voices and sound effects. Recording begins in July and it will be fun to have the characters come to life in this delightful venture!

I hope to return The Christmas Party stage play to the stage in December 2021, but we will see what is happening with COVID. The goal will be to have the cast of characters presented in Denver, Colorado - Stay tuned!

I will have regular updates with a blog on my website to keep everyone informed of the progress with each layer of the journey. Stay tuned and thanks for the ongoing support!

If you are so inclined, I invite you to post a review of the novel or stage play on my website and please continue to spread the word!

Thank you everyone!

        Introducing the newest sleuth in the Seagoing Mysteries series!


Margaret Middleton is a hard working librarian who has created a lovely library on the ocean liner where she works. However, her quiet life is often interrupted as she finds herself pulled into a series of ‘whodunits’ while cruising around the pacific coast. She quickly learns that there is a lot more than blissful vacationing happening at sea!

Coming Soon!

I am also proud to present the latest novel in the

Chari Davenport Mysteries series, The Masquerade Party!

The Cross Point district, located in the lovely Pacific Northwest, is a quiet, diverse neighborhood where people usually live together peacefully. Yet, in any community there is also conflict. For this group, chaos, frustration, and confusion will shock their once serene existence. Between the annual masquerade party and new construction on an area park, the happy balance will certainly be tested! Marshall Edmonds is called upon once again to sort through a very messy set of circumstances. When it comes to this particular party, deciding what to wear is crucial!
