Starfire Cozy Mystery Series
Murder on Lot B
Los Angeles, 1923. The land of movie stars and perpetual sunshine has a stylish new force to be reckoned with—Poppy Starfire, Private Investigator.
Poppy recently moved out on her own and is eager for a taste of independence and to prove to her retired Uncle Sherman that she is capable of running the Starfire Detective Agency. Her brother Jasper has also joined the agency. Poppy prides herself on being a skilled investigator but so far the cases have been scarce and to say the least uninspiring. But that all changes when Anna Colton walks through the door. Anna’s brother Roger, a famous stuntman for the local movie studio has died in a well-publicized accidental fall. Only Anna’s not convinced it was an accident. It’s up to Poppy and Jasper to peel away the layers and uncover the truth. Who killed Roger ‘Rowdy’ James?
Murder at the Ostrich Farm
Poppy Starfire is looking forward to a summer outing at Dawson Ostrich Farm with two of her favorite people, her brother Jasper and her dad. The day starts out well enough with souvenir shopping, cold lemonades and, of course, plenty of ostriches. But when one of the farm visitors is found strangled to death, the fun-filled visit takes a grim turn.
When evidence and quick conclusions lead to an arrest, Ruby Dawson, the farm owner's daughter comes to the Starfire Detective Agency for help. Miss Dawson is certain the police have the wrong man and she hopes Poppy and Jasper can find the real killer. The Starfire investigators soon find themselves surrounded with motives, possible suspects, scant evidence and, of all things, ostriches.
