"SNAPPY DIALOGUE, CLEVER STORYTELLING, AND CHARMING CHARACTERS... Lost luggage has never been this fun!

MIDNIGHT ICE by Diane Vallere. A Mad for Mod Mystery Novella (prequel to Pillow Stalk).

SWITCH BACK by Kendel Lynn. An Elliott Lisbon Mystery Novella (prequel to Board Stiff).

Praise for OTHER PEOPLE'S BAGGAGE: "A cozy triple-scoop that tastes divine. . . the pleasantly contrasting novellas make it easy to finish off a story in one sitting, plus each novella serves as a prequel to the respective author's full-length work." - Library Journal "Lost luggage has never been this fun! With well-drawn characters, Other People's Baggage is your first class ticket to three fast-paced adventures full of mystery, murder, and magic." - Elizabeth Craig, Author of the Southern Quilting Series "Kendel Lynn's Switch Back is a clever, entertaining mystery with small town flavor and Texas flair!" - Debra Webb, USA Today Bestselling Author "What do you get when you mix Doris Day with a dash of Texas two-step, then stir in a smidgen of Edinburgh, secret chambers, and magic? A recipe for fun entitled, Other People's Baggage. Although mixed up luggage is the thread that connects this trio of globetrotting novellas, it's snappy dialogue, clever storytelling, and charming characters that are the real common denominators. . .I'm already hooked on their three new mystery series, and I've only read the prequels!" - Maddy Hunter, Bestselling Author of the Passport to Peril Mystery series "Those who enjoy travel and mysteries like myself will definitely enjoy reading Other People's Baggage, three novellas about female sleuths who solve two thefts and a murder while coping with an airport mixing up their three bags. The mix-ups are a creative theme for tying the stories together, and I loved seeing how each sleuth dealt with the problem. A very fun collection!" - Beth Groundwater, Author of the Claire Hanover Gift Basket Designer and RM Outdoor Adventures Mystery Series "I enjoyed this book immensely. . .They are all delightfully different protagonists and all are definitely in the Cozy Mystery genre, which I love. . .Most of us are always looking for a great new series or author to read. This introduces three of them. Five stars out of five." - Lynn Farris, National Mystery Review Examiner at Examiner.com Books in the Henery Press Mystery Novella Series: OTHER PEOPLE'S BAGGAGE (#1) HEARTACHE MOTEL (#2) Part of the Henery Press Mystery Series Collection, if you like one, you'll probably like them all. . .. Author Bios: Kendel Lynn is a Southern California native who now parks her flip-flops in Dallas, Texas. She read her first Alfred Hitchcock and the Three Investigators at the age of seven and has loved mysteries ever since. Her debut novel, Board Stiff, was an Agatha Award nominee for Best First Novel. It features Elliott Lisbon, a mostly amateur sleuth who has a slight aversion to all things germy and is only five thousand hours away from getting her PI license. Along with writing and reading, Kendel spends her time editing, designing, and figuring out ways to avoid the gym but still eat cupcakes for dinner. Gigi Pandian is the child of cultural anthropologists from New Mexico and the southern tip of India. After being dragged around the world during her childhood, she tried to escape her fate when she left a PhD program for art school. But adventurous academic characters wouldn't stay out of her head. Thus was born the Jaya Jones Treasure Hunt Mystery Series. The first book in the series, Artifact, was awarded a Malice Domestic Grant and named a "Best of 2012" debut novel by Suspense Magazine. The follow-up is Pirate Vishnu. Gigi loves writing locked-room mystery short stories. Her latest, "The Hindi Houdini," was an Agatha Award nominee for Best Short Story. Diane Vallere lives in a world where popcorn is a breakfast food and Doris Day movies are revered for their cultural significance. After over twenty years in the fashion industry, she now writes full time, juggling the Mad for Mod series, the Style & Error series, and the upcoming Material Witness series. She launched her own detective agency at age ten and has maintained a passion for shoes, clues, and clothes ever since."--
