Emlyn Goode is a writer who also happens to be a witch. Or maybe it’s the other way around. She, and her creator Susan Solomon, live in upstate New York near Niagara Falls. In this outing, Emlyn attends a meeting of her writers group and gets astrally transported to an area amusement park that’s being torn down to put up condos. She’s prompted in this trip by a new member of her group. When that new member turns up dead, Emlyn finds herself compelled to investigate. It doesn’t help that she’s a suspect and her new boyfriend, the assistant Chief of Police, has to treat her as a suspect.

The book is set around Halloween, and I happened to read it while waiting for trick-or-treaters at my house, so I found it especially timely. It’s a good cozy mystery. Emlyn needs to use her skills as a witch and good old gumshoe work to crack this case. Oh, and she’s helped by Elvira, the “talking” cat. I found this book very enjoyable.

Holiday Cozy Mystery

March 3, 2018Format: Kindle Edition

This was my first Emlyn Goode Mystery, but it won’t be my last! Author Susan Lynn Solomon has created a wonderful cozy mystery series, and this holiday novella is a delightful crash course into it.

When the police throw a Christmas bash, it is merry mayhem as everyone is surprised by the grisly secret Santa gift. Although her cop boyfriend tells her repeatedly to stay out of it, Emlyn Good tries to figure out the mystery. After all, where else will she get material for her next book. As the story progresses, readers get to know Emlyn, her family and cats well. While it is clear that the characters have, for the most part, been introduced and developed previously, Ms. Solomon presented her characters in a way that I felt I knew them.

‘Twas The Season is a good holiday cozy mystery that fans of the series are sure to enjoy.

October 5, 2017

Format: Kindle EditionI can only think of one word. One word that best describes this book, its characters, and this story.Charming.This entire book struck me as so charming, I couldn’t help but think of my late mother as I read it. Why? Because she loved a mystery. She was always watching shows like Murder She Wrote, Cagney and Lacey, and the like. This Emlyn Goode mystery would have fit right in. The meddlesome citizen, friends with the police, and seemingly better at solving murders than the pro’s are.  It’s such a great read. It grabbed me on the first page, and made me curious about the other books in this series that I haven’t read.

This novelette is well worth the read, and I highly recommend it if you like a good mystery. Hell, even if you don’t, pick it up. I’d bet that you would still enjoy this book.

TOTALLY UNPUTDOWNABLE READ–DEAD AGAIN BY SUSAN LYNN SOLOMON–AN EMLYN GOODE MYSTERY

dead again.jpg

Nothing gets past a descendant of Sarah Goode!!BySandra Vattimoon September 9, 2017Format: Kindle Edition

This is the second book in the Emlyn Goode Mystery series. It can be read as a stand-alone, but why miss out on the excitement of the first book?I love Emyln’s thought process. Her imagination tends to run away from her at the drop of a hat. Unfortunately, she tends to meander down dark roads into the terrifying abyss. She’s lucky to have her friend Rebecca and her unusual feline, Elvira, to help bring her back to reality.

In this story, fates are tempted and the past has returned to haunt the residents of The Falls. More murders. Are these cases tied to an unsolved murder from 42 years ago? How can Emlyn figure out what happened before she was even born?

I love the excitement and adventure found in this series. I enjoy following along as Emlyn pieces together clues to solve the mysteries. They are well-written clean reads. I look forward to the next case Emlyn comes across.

5.0 out of 5 stars A UNIQUE VOICEReviewed in the United States on August 27, 2016Bella Vita Salon is the ‘go to’ place for news of import. It’s also the launch point from which author Susan Lynn Solomon unwraps her own unique brand of storytelling. Using first person, the author confers on character Emlyn Goode the dual tasks of protagonist and narrator, sharing her insights and uncertainties with an unflinching self-deprecation that made me feel like she was sitting across from me at a shared table. A novelette, BELLA VITA gives more of what we first discovered in Solomon’s THE MAGIC OF MURDER, a 5 star full length work that focused on a modern day witch coming to terms with her inherited powers. I sense that the author in her enthusiasm just had to share her down-to-earth character one more time before the follow-up to MAGIC releases. Thank you for that. BELLA VITA is a nice bridge between the novels. 5 stars

LIBBY LOOKS INTO THE LIFE OF A MURDERED ROCK STAR AND FINDS OUT A SHOCKING TRUTH ABOUT HERSELF! RAISING KANE BY SUSAN LYNN SOLOMON

Libby Bridgeman, s stringer for the Village Voice, balks when Max Howard, her editor, insists she interview Alicia Kane. Though, campus rebel, a rock superstar and an icon in the 1970s, Kane hasn’t been heard of in forty years. A Brooklyn court case involving a Black Lives Matter protest seems far more relevant. But you don’t say no to Max Howard.
While writing the article about the interview after meeting Kane, Libby receives a call from a detective—Alicia Kane is dead. Accident or suicide, the detective tells her, but Libby believes she was murdered. When Max insists that she drop the story she’s certain he knows more than he’ll tell her.
In Greenwich Village, Chicago, Niagara Falls, a Manhattan recording studio, Libby interviews people who’d known Kane. Like Max, each seems to hide something. A connection to her family? Then, one tumultuous night she learns Alicia Kane’s complete story, and this flips her world.

A WONDERFUL MYSTERY WITH PARANORMAL UNDERTONES!

Jessica Menotti is frightened by a recurrent dream in which she’s chased through a maze by an unseen assailant. Hoping to escape the fears, she moves to Niagara Falls and takes a job as an Assistant District Attorney. Soon, though, she seems to be running through a real-life maze.

Called by Detective Mulroney to oversee the collection of evidence at a murder scene, Jessica is panicked when she sees an old yellow building then is startled by old bones dug up and a strange ring in the grave. It’s the first time she’s seen any of this, yet her instinct is to run from that place. At the same time, though she’s just met Mulroney she feels drawn to him as to someone she’s loved for years. Love, fear, where are these feelings coming from? Certainly not from any experience in this life.

When she is assigned a case involving drug smugglers, that maze dream and her sense of dread at the crime scene come into focus. Struggling to understand her sense of déjà vu leads to a vision of her death in a past life… and maybe her death in this one as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another keeper for my bookshelfReviewed in the United States on December 14, 2020Verified PurchaseWith a plot as full of twists and turns as the mazes in Jessie’s nightmares, this paranormal mystery has enough red herrings to stock a fish store. Clues abound, but what do they really mean? You can’t tell the good guys from the bad guys until the maze is run. Warning: if you value a good night’s sleep, don’t start reading this book at bedtime.
