A Geeks and Things Cozy Mysteries Novella #5
Your favorite amateur sleuth is back for one last case in the final installment of the Geeks and Things Cozy Mystery series.
Kalina Greystone’s life has finally fallen into place. Now happily married and eight months pregnant, she is ready to step away from sleuthing and give all of her time to her family and Geeks and Things. Unfortunately, sleuthing isn’t quite done with her. On a trip to the cemetery to visit her father’s grave, she happens upon a dead woman’s body. Video footage reveals the killer but the case takes one bizarre turn after the next. The woman, Verona Maxwell, shares fingerprints with Paige Fischer, a little girl who died over fifteen years ago in a boating accident with her twin brother, Patrick. Or did they? The killer looks an awful lot like Patrick. Having briefly known the twins in her youth, Kalina searches their past in the hopes of making sense of the present. But the more she digs, the darker the reality becomes. Systemic abuse by Paige and parental neglect rise to the surface, making her wonder if the past isn’t as buried as everyone was led to believe.
I adored this little cozy mystery! Sarah Biglow fit so much into this novella that the story didn’t feel rushed or short-changed. We got an interesting mystery full of intrigue and history, but also the re-introduction of an old flame. I really liked our heroine Kalina and her nephew, and I can’t wait to find out what happens between her and Christian.

For the first time in sixteen years, Lara Caphart has returned to her hometown of Whisker Jog, New Hampshire. She wants to reconnect with her estranged Aunt Fran, who’s having some difficulty looking after herself—and her eleven cats. Taking care of a clowder of kitties is easy, but keeping Fran from being harassed by local bully Theo Barnes is hard. The wealthy builder has his sights set on Fran’s property, and is determined to make her an offer she doesn’t dare refuse.
Then Lara spots a blue-eyed ragdoll cat that she swears is the reincarnation of her beloved Blue, her childhood pet. Pursuing the feline to the edge of Fran’s yard, she stumbles upon the body of Theo Barnes, clearly a victim of foul play. To get her and Fran off the suspect list, Lara finds herself following the cat’s clues in search of a killer. Is Blue’s ghost really trying to help her solve a murder, or has Lara inhaled too much catnip?
