A Fun Cozy Mystery Series - A Helen and Martha Murder Mystery It’s a beautiful summer and the busy village of Marsden-Lacey, England, has murder on its mind. Someone just whacked everyone’s least favorite villager, Sir Carstons, on his villainous head. That’s when American expats, paralegal Martha Littleword and book expert Helen Ryes, find themselves knee-deep in Yorkshire murder. Spirited empty-nesters, they throw their newbie detective hats into the ring, only to discover that a murder mystery can quickly turn from adventurous lark into personal peril. With a dash of Southern charm and humor, and the help of a few quirky villagers, the girls just might survive. They’ll also have to figure out how to handle the local catch-of-the-day, Piers Cousins, and the cantankerous Chief of Police, DCI Johns. Will they or won’t they? If they do, they might solve a murder, or two, along with a hundred-year-old mystery involving a Brontë sister and a famous piece of English history. Happy reading! PRAISE FOR TWO BIRDS WITH ONE STONE: "This was fun reading with good characters and plenty of twists in the plot. The personalities of the two main characters make a good contrast. I like the way they play off each other. Good suspense to the end. Thought I had the villain all figured out but in the end, I was fooled completely. Good read for a first time author. Looking forward to what else she writes next." --Surley R., amazon.com "The book is hilarious! First of all you know right away where this is going. The two women are going to become friends, etc. The whole first half of the book is the foundation for the series. It is written and fleshed out well. Several folk were pulled into the tale but didn't become mixed up in my mind as often happens. I had no idea...none...and I'm famous for naming "who done it" after a chapter or two, who did the damage. I immediately downloaded the second book and read it too. What fun!" --Bluememaw, amazon.com "Always a good sign when the first book in a series grabs my attention in the first paragraph and never lets go. But then I have a weakness for well-written English cozies. Yes, that the two main characters who seemingly had nothing in common would become fast friends was predictable, but it's to Ms. Vansandt's credit that their individual strengths and weaknesses were anything but. Looking forward to the next installments!" --Joanna M., amazon.com This cozy mystery series contains no graphic violence, sex, or strong language.
