Hello there and I appreciate all the inquiries regarding what is next for Chari Davenport Mysteries!
The beginning of 2019 was a busy one and I was not able to get online as much as I would have liked. However, 2020 will bring a lot of new components and I begin these projects with wonderful enthusiasm!
There are some exciting adventures on the horizon:
New novel and series - I am diligently working on the first novel in the second series – The Seagoing Mysteries with the first novel titled ‘The Voyage and the Library.’
Book Expo America - I plan to premiere the newest novel in May 2020 at Book Expo America! Stay tuned for details.
Audio book - Summer 2020 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!
The Christmas Party stage play returns - Finally, to wrap up the year, The Christmas Party will return to the stage and this time the cast of characters will be presented in Denver, Colorado.
What a thrilling year ahead! 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!
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!
