"SNAPPY DIALOGUE, CLEVER STORYTELLING, AND CHARMING CHARACTERS... 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. Baggage claim can be terminal when a computer glitch mislabels identical vintage suitcases. This is what happened after three women with a knack for solving mysteries each grabbed the wrong bag. MIDNIGHT ICE by Diane Vallere. A Mad for Mod Mystery Novella (prequel to Pillow Stalk). When interior decorator Madison Night crosses the country to distance herself from a recent breakup, she learns it's harder to escape her past than she thought, and diamonds are rarely a girl's best friend. SWITCH BACK by Kendel Lynn. An Elliott Lisbon Mystery Novella (prequel to Board Stiff). Ballantyne Foundation director Elliott Lisbon travels to Texas after inheriting an entire town, but when she learns the donor was murdered, she has to unlock the small town's big secrets or she'll never get out alive. FOOL'S GOLD by Gigi Pandian. A Jaya Jones Treasure Hunt Mystery (prequel to Artifact). When a world-famous chess set is stolen from a locked room during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, historian Jaya Jones and her magician best friend must outwit actresses and alchemists to solve the baffling crime. 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."--… (lisätietoja)

A collection of three short stories with an interesting tie: While each story remains a stand-alone, the heroine of each story flew threw the Dallas airport during bad storms on the same day, resulting in each one getting the other's luggage.

Midnight Ice is probably the weakest of the three stories, mainly because the plot premise felt a bit weak and very contrived. Trying to hard to be clever, it just came across as amateur. Switch Back was good, but not strong - not a lot to go on throughout the story, just all the clues coming at the same time right before the denouement. Strong characters and setting, though, made up for any real plot short comings. Ms. Lynn's first full length novel featuring Elliot is on it's way to me and I think it will probably be an entertaining read. My favorite, was Fool's Gold. Strong characters, expensive "treasure" in the form of a rare chess set, castle's and alchemy all made for a very entertaining short story that was adventure almost as much as it was mystery. I'll definitely be checking out the first full-length novel featuring Jaya Jones. ( )
