It’s Mystery Day at the Indie e-Con, so I wanted to share about the indie-published mysteries I’ve read and enjoyed. Mysteries are one of my favorite genres, after all, so I couldn’t pass up the opportunity!
Although this book isn’t technically indie-published, the author is an indie author who wrote a book for the Vintage Jane Austen series, Emily Ann Benedict. This is a clean, clever, and funny FBI mystery with a refreshing Christian message. Read my review on Goodreads.
This book is by one of my favorite authors, Sarah Holman. It’s the first of a series (I’ve enjoyed them all!) that’s exciting, clean, and character-driven, with great Christian depth. Read my review on Goodreads.
This mystery was so much fun! Written in the crisp, witty, and deliciously descriptive style of old British detective novels, Rachel Heffington’s book was a wonderful experience. Read my review on Goodreads.
I’ve only read books 4, 5, and 6 of this fun and absorbing series, but I’m itching to read the others. Lisa B. Thomas is an author I proofread for with a real knack for spinning a mystery.

Hi, everyone! I hope you’re enjoying the Indie e-Con kickoff. Welcome to your next stop on the scavenger hunt. I have the immense pleasure of hosting Tammy Lash, and it’s been wonderful getting to know her. I hope you enjoy her as much as I do!
Hi, Kelsey! Thanks for hosting me on your blog today! Hey, everyone!
Kelsey and I met this week through Indie e-Con. I learned that this super-sweet gal lives in hot and sunny Texas. That’s waaaaaaay far away from the wilds of Michigan’s upper peninsula where I live. My family and I live just minutes away from chilly Lake Superior where SNOW and ICE CHUNKS are still glistening happily on the beaches. I think Kelsey would appreciate this last bit of snow. I don’t mind sharing! What do you say, Kelsey? Join me for snow cones?
The U.P. is a beautiful place to be. My family and I moved to our favorite vacation spot just eleven days ago–so life has been too hectic to enjoy the scenery that inspired my first novel,White Wolf and the Ash Princess. When renovations slow down on our new fixer-upper, I plan on resuming work on the two companion novels to White Wolf, a short story, and a children’s devotional. I love writing Hybrid History. Wait. What is it? Well, it’s a brand new genre–that I made up. I combine romance, adventure, inspiration, steampunk, fantasy (in the form of Native American legends), and I mix it up with historical elements. Want to see what it’s all about? Discover Hybrid History by reading White Wolf and the Ash Princess. It’s waiting for you in paperback or Kindle on Amazon–OR–you can contact me for a signed copy.
You can follow me on the following social media sites. I’d love to see you! I can make you a snow cone, too…but for a limited time! Our snow pile next to our house is daily shrinking. ;P

Welcome to Day 5 of the Five Fall Favorites Party hosted by Read Another Page! Fall is one of the best seasons for being outdoors . . . and reading! Although we may have a favorite lounge chair at home, benches are the choice seat if we want to go to the park and pass a beautiful hour or two with a good book.
Good books don’t have to be put out by big publishers. There are many indie-published books that hit the spot with great writing and provide wonderful stories and valuable information that might not have seen the light of day if indie authors hadn’t had the courage to publish them themselves. Here are my top five favorites:
Charity’s Diary Series by Elisabeth Allen
This contemporary fiction trilogy tells the story of an English girl who is a homeschool graduate living with her family. Through disappointments and unexpected opportunities, Charity must learn how to embrace God’s will for her life. These books are so sweet, relatable, and faith-building. Find on Goodreads.
Grace Triumphant by Alicia A. Willis
I’ve enjoyed all of Alicia A. Willis’s books, but I’ll select this onefor my list (my other favorite of hers is Remembering the Alamo). Grace Triumphant is the gripping story of a young British sea captain involved in the slave trade during the 1700s, a cabin boy who must shine the light of Christ, and a young lady who yearns for a purpose beyond marriage to her tyrannical fiance. Read my full review on Goodreads.
Friendship and Folly by Meredith Allady
I’m a Jane Austen fan, so I’m hard to please when it comes to Regency fiction written by more recent authors (Jane Austen’s novels were published during the Regency period in England, 1811-1820). But Meredith Allady is a contemporary author with an authentic Regency-era voice that’s funny and insightful, a bit like Austen’s. Friendship and Folly was well researched, satisfyingly long, and very entertaining. Read my full review on Goodreads.
The Thaw Series by E. Kaiser Writes
This wintry series of (currently) three books is a retelling of the “Snow Queen” fairy tale with elements from the movie Frozen. It gives quite a twist to the stories we know, however, making it into its own story. I love the historical fairy-tale feel of E. Kaiser’s writing style – the customs and world are delightfully detailed, and the characters are well developed and fascinating. Readmy reviews on Goodreads.
The Five Gems Series by E. Kaiser Writes
This series of (currently) two (almost three) light fantasy books are unique stories. E. Kaiser’s signature descriptive world-building and engaging characters in exciting situations make them fun and satisfying to read. Fia, the main protagonist, doesn’t claim to be anyone special, but the adventures she’s thrust into bring out the best in her. Find on Goodreads.
