Happy June! We’re awash in cucumbers here in Austin… I’m making quinoa salad every other day to get through them (if you’d like a copy of the recipe, I’ll be sending it to members of the Readers’ Circle next week; please come join us!…
Reviews of The Gray Whale Inn Mysteries
MacInerney’s charming sixth offers beautiful scenery, an assortment of appended recipes, and one of her strongest mysteries to date.
All thumbs up for Murder Most Maine, another in the engaging series of Cranberry Island mysteries… I’m ready to book a room at the Gray Whale Inn!
Sure to please cozy readers.
…a new cozy author worth investigating.
Murder on the Rocks mixes a pinch of salt air, a hunky love interest, an island divided by environmental issues… and, of course, murder. Add Karen MacInerney to your list of favorite Maine mystery authors.
Murder on the Rocks has just what’s needed for a cozy evening in front of the fire with a good mystery book — a plucky innkeeper who’s come from off island and a determined developer who wants her land. Set on a rocky island off the coast of Maine, you can hear the foghorns, see the circling seagulls, smell the wild beach roses, taste the wicked blueberry coffee cake and the killer cranberry scones (the recipes follow the story), and feel the satisfying shivers when the first body appears.
A savory blend of New England charm, delightfully eccentric characters, humor and mouth-watering recipes… all served with a side of murder.
Deliciously clever plot. Juicy characters. Karen MacInerney has cooked up a winning recipe for murder. Don’t miss this mystery!
Karen serves up intrigue as effortlessly as her heroine whips up oatmeal chocolate cookies. This debut novel is a whale of a great read.
I look anxiously forward to the sequel… Karen MacInerney has a winning recipe for a great series.
Karen MacInerney writes with verve and vitality, and her Natalie Barnes is a Maine original. I’m ready to book a room at the Gray Whale Inn!

Sophie was a delight, and Howling at the Moon was like a big bag of potato chips… I kept reaching for the next page, and the next, and the next…
If you are a fan of Kelley Armstrong, Cheyenne McCray, or Kim Harrison then you will definitely want to check out Karen MacInerney’s Howling at the Moon: Tales of an Urban Werewolf, it is to die for!
Humorous and event-filled… a romantic triangle also adds spice and interest. Future adventures promise to be quite entertaining!

This hilarious werewolf tale will keep you laughing — and begging for more!
Clever plotting, charming characters — and of course, decadent recipes, will leave you hungry for more.
A swift-paced, fun romp through supernatural Austin.
With characters that are kooky and likable, plots that are out there but still manage to make me giggle… Howling at the Moon is the beginning of a series I will no doubt enjoy immersing myself in.
Misc Mystery Reviews
If you love a mystery with the most unlikeliest P.I. EVER… with enough snort-worthy moments to have the family looking up and wanting to know what’s tickled your fancy… then, yeah, pay Margie Peterson a visit. You will not be disappointed.
A laugh-out-loud, wacky and hysterical romp.
There’s a legacy of strong Texas Women, and I’d like to welcome Kitzi Camden to the ranks. She’s smart, funny, and shoots from the mouth.
