MURDER IN G MAJOR (#1)

amateur sleuths, cozy, paranormal mysteries

Gethsemane Brown Mysteries

With few other options, African-American classical musician Gethsemane Brown accepts a position turning a group of rowdy schoolboys into an award-winning orchestra. Stranded in the Irish countryside, she figures any job is better than none. The perk? Housesitting a lovely cliffside cottage. The catch? The ghost of its murdered owner haunts the place. Falsely accused of killing his wife (and himself), he begs Gethsemane to clear his name so he can rest in peace. Her reluctant investigation provokes a dormant killer and she soon finds herself in grave danger. As Gethsemane races to prevent a deadly encore, will she uncover the truth or star in her own farewell performance?

“The captivating southwestern Irish countryside adds a delightful element... Gethsemane is an appealing protagonist who is doing the best she can against overwhelming odds.” – Library Journal (starred review)

DEATH IN D MINOR (#2)

African-American musician Gethsemane Brown solved a string of murders and got used to living with a snarky ghost. But the ghost has disappeared and her brother-in-law is coming to visit—with one day’s notice. She scrambles to call her spectral roomie back from beyond and find a way to save their cottage from a developer. When her brother-in-law is accused of stealing, Gethsemane goes undercover to investigate a forgery/theft ring. But she accidentally conjures the ghost of an eighteenth-century sea captain and ends up the prime suspect in a murder. Will she save herself and bring a thief and murderer to justice, or will her investigation become her swan song?

KILLING IN C SHARP (#3)

She saved Carraigfaire—but can she save her friends? Gethsemane Brown now faces a vengeful ghost determined to exact revenge for her murder centuries ago. This ghost’s wrath spares no one—not Gethsemane’s students, Inspector Niall O’Reilly, fellow teacher Frankie Grennan, or a group of ghost hunters determined to prove ghosts exist. Proof Gethsemane has to quash to keep Eamon, her resident ghost and friend, from becoming an internet sensation. As if a spiteful specter wasn’t bad enough, a crooked music reviewer turns up dead in the opera house orchestra pit, a famous composer is arrested for the crime, and Gethsemane must team up with a notorious true-crime author to clear his name.

Then Frankie’s main competitor in the rose show turns up dead in Frankie’s rose garden. Frankie takes first prize in the category of prime suspect. As bodies start dropping like rose petals, Gethsemane must judge the other suspects and find the real killer.
