Tales of a Tenacious Housesitter

Home Sweet Murder - "Meggie ignores her friends’ warnings and takes a housesitting job in an idyllic lake setting. Simple task? Not when burglary by boat and murder are involved. Senior sleuth Meggie is in for the swim of her life as she uncovers hidden family secrets." - Beth Solheim, author of the Sadie Witt Mystery Series

"The gentle rhythm and relatable characters make reading Home Sweet Murder like sitting down to dinner with a good friend." - Jess Lourey, Lefty-nominated author of November Hunt

Home for the Murder - "Meggie, slightly past middle age and incurably curious, is off on another housesitting adventure with her spirited and voluble gal-pal, Shirley. A housesitting gig in sunny Key West, Florida, ends badly only to be followed by the disappearance of a dear old family friend back in Pine Lake, Minnesota. In this second book in the series, Jarvela once again marvelously invokes all of Minnesota’s Lake Country details—from blueberry picking to fending off mosquitos, from loon carving to ice fishing, and from deer hunting to the lure of casinos—and rolls them into an uncomplicated but absorbing mystery. If you liked Meggie in Home Sweet Murder—and we did!—you’ll want to read Home for the Murder." - Laura Hansen, Veteran Bookseller and Award Winning Poet

Bring Home the Murder - "In Bring Home the Murder, Meggie Moore housesits a farm, taking care of the pigs, the chickens, and the horses. But the ghosts? A light and heartwarming mystery involving buried treasure, a hidden staircase, and thwarted love - what could be better?" - Mary Logue, author of Lake of Tears

"I liked the characters, I liked the story. This is a good book." - Monica Ferris
