The trouble is, all of her dates wind up at Stiffwell's Funeral Parlor—dead. Gossiping townspeople begin to mistrust the sisters while café customers and eligible men dwindle.

Blood On The Stage 1600 To 1800 from the Author: Amnon Kabatchnik. Audiences throughout the centuries have always been drawn to theatrical productions that feature criminal activity. Playwrights from Sophocles to Anthony Shaffer have been more than willing to satisfy those cravings with productions that feature an assortment of dastardly deeds. Never was this more apparent than in the 17th and 18th centuries, where crime lurked from stage left to stage right and every bloody spot in between.In Blood on the Stage, 1600 to 1800: Milestone Plays of Murder, Mystery, and Mayhem, Amnon Kabatchnik profiles near fifty works of theft, treachery, court intrigue, incest, and murder produced over these two centuries. Among the plays discussed in this book are The Beggar's Opera by John Gay, Horace Walpole’s The Mysterious Mother, Friedrich Schiller’s The Robbers, and George Lillo's The London Merchant, which was based on an actual case of murder. This volume also includes American plays such as The Prince of Parthia by Thomas Godfrey and William Dunlop’s The Fatal Deception. William Shakespeare is also represented with the classics Othello, Macbeth, and King Lear. Entries are presented chronologically, and each includes a plot synopsis, production data, opinions by critics and scholars, and biographical sketches of playwrights and key actors. Blood on the Stage, 1600 to 1800 will appeal to theater scholars, researchers, and any who immerse themselves in the genre of suspense, both in print and on stage.

Death Comes To The Fair from the Author: Catherine Lloyd. It’s harvest time in the village of Kurland St. Mary as Lucy and Robert prepare to take their vows—but a murderer has taken an unseasonable vow of vengeance . . . As Miss Lucy Harrington, daughter of the village rector, and Major Sir Robert Kurland plan their nuptials, the major is beginning to wonder if he’ll ever hear wedding bells. He’s seen complex military campaigns that involved less strategy, and he’s finding Lucy’s meddling family maddening. When the body of Ezekiel Thurrock, the church verger, is discovered crushed by a stone gargoyle that has fallen from the bell tower, the tragic death strikes a somber note and the wedding is delayed. But the evidence suggests this was no accident, and Lucy wonders if bad blood at the village fair had anything to do with the man’s mysterious demise, since there was much bitterness over Ezekiel’s prizewinning vegetables. As Lucy and Robert uncover long-standing village feuds, the town’s dark secrets begin to take their toll and the couple soon finds they too are in grave danger . . . Outstanding Praise for Catherine Lloyd and her Kurland St. Mary Mysteries! Death Comes to Kurland Hall “The third in this charming Regency series has a darker side.” —Library Journal “Lloyd is an expert on all things early 19th-century England and it shows. This engaging book ends with a twist readers won’t see coming.” —Mystery Scene “A saucy tale of love and murder, Regency style.” —Kirkus Reviews Death Comes to London “Excellent historical detail, delightfully flawed lead characters, and the doings of the season make for entertaining reading. M. C. Beaton fans will enjoy this series.”—Booklist “A pleasant combination of Regency romance and mystery that evokes fond memories of Georgette Heyer.” —Kirkus Reviews “Engaging…Regency fans will find plenty to like.” —Publishers Weekly Death Comes to the Village “Lloyd combines a satisfying mystery with plenty of wit and character development.” —Booklist “A Regency Rear Window whose chair-bound hero and the woman who civilizes him generate sparks worthy of Darcy and Elizabeth.” —Kirkus Reviews “A delightful debut…Readers will hope death returns soon to Kurland St. Mary.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Sin Perd N from the Author: David R. Stevens. It is a painful thing when a person realizes that his carefully crafted life, with long held beliefs and a valued social structure, is no longer valid, and to live a life of more of the same is simply unacceptable. This is what Mark Gardner faces in It's Time. It is the story of a good little boy who faithfully followed the rules of his religion only to discover in midlife that he must forfeit all that has gone before and take a different path. Mark is a thirty-two year old Jehovah's witness elder who has lived a chaste, celibate life, pursuing God's work as he believed it to be. He has known he was gay ever since he was six years old, a fact that he has never acted upon and always compartmentalized into the deepest corner of his subconscious. When circumstances finally force Mark to face his homosexuality, he begins a painful and disorienting transformation, launching him on a tenuous search for happiness. He realizes on an intellectual level that to follow his path will mean giving up family and friends and his faith, the entire structure of his life, and he is prepared to do this. He knows it is time to start over. What he does not realize is that the beliefs and conditioning of a lifetime are not discarded in a day, a month or even a year. He holds a picture of the life he wants for himself, but he will never achieve it until he addresses his losses and his beliefs about religion, right and wrong and about himself. These are lessons he will have to learn, and It's Time chronicles the beginning of his journey.
