About Misty Simon
Laughter and Love are two main components of any story I write. Laughter really is the best medicine and my heroines always figure that out at some point, though perhaps some later than others. I live in Central Pennsylvania with my family and two rambunctious dogs in a house that is about to celebrate its two hundredth birthday.

So when her best friend asks for help with an in-home demonstration party, Ivy jumps at the chance to get out of the house and away from Dad. She has no idea of the subject until she gets a look at the cookies. But that becomes the least of her troubles when she walks straight into another murder scene. One where she’s the prime suspect.
What else could go wrong? When you’re Ivy Morris, the only right answer is “everything.” With the help of hunky Ben Fallon, this girl will try to figure out why she’s being framed and what it has to do with her getting THE WRONG DRAWERS.
It was supposed to be the most epic Halloween Night at the faire…
It’s the current season’s final hurrah for the misfit paranormals and Verla Faeth at the Ren Faire. They’ve managed to overcome most of the trouble that’s cropped up, masking demon invasions, otherworldly visitors and the dead coming around for a pint by letting the normal folk think everything has been a rehearsal for the extravaganza that is Halloween night. Now that it’s here, it’s going to be awesome!
Or at least that’s what Verla is hoping for—until the ley lines crisscrossing the faire start pulsing bright green and snapping in the air, while ghosts and zombies walk around and all the misfits begin doing the one thing they’d been born to do but never could. Is it disaster or serendipity?
For Tallulah Graver, marrying wealthy Waldo Phillips seemed like the best way out of the family business, the Graver Funeral Home. But when her marriage falls apart and Tallie is left with next to nothing, she turns to cleaning houses to make ends meet. As humbling as it is to tidy the mansions of the snobby socialites she used to call friends, at least she doesn't have to be around dead bodies. Until . . .
She discovers one of her employers lying in a closet with a knife sticking out of her chest. This unpleasant shock seems to be part of a web of weird experiences: Her friend’s shop is broken into, her ex is stun-gunned where it hurts the most, and now she’s receiving flowers from the dead woman. Granted the deliveryman is handsome, but seriously, that’s enough to cast a pall over anyone’s day. Now Tallie needs to dig deep to clean up this mess—before she finds herself in a grave situation.
“Simon kicks off a new series that combines a bit of humor and romance with a heroine who knows no boundaries while searching for the truth that will keep her out of jail.” —Kirkus Reviews
Most housecleaners don’t do windows, but Tallie Graver loves leaving a pane of glass streak-free and sparkling. After a dirty divorce from a filthy-rich jerk, she's started her own cleaning business to make ends meet. On her latest job, prepping a renovated bed and breakfast for a grand re-opening, she's standing outside on a ladder, wiping off a grimy pane, when she spies a man on a bed through the glass. But the B&B isn’t open for business yet—and the man’s not sleeping. Her family owns the Graver Funeral Home, so Tallie knows a corpse when she sees one.
The victim is a shady building inspector with a reputation for handing out passing grades for a greased palm. With the local police resistant, Tallie launches her own investigation, before she gets a rep as a town crank. But it’s going to take more than a squirt bottle and a squeegee to clean up this mess. With the help of her gal pal Gina, Tallie searches for a killer’s motive. But she’d better be careful, or it’ll be curtains for this window cleaner . . .
Best friends Tallie Graver and Gina Laudermilch both seem to spend a lot of time around urns. For Tallie, they’re part and parcel of the family business, Graver’s Funeral Home. Even though she’s traded ashes for dusting with her own cleaning business, she still works part-time for her folks and lives above the funeral parlor. But for Gina, they’re the vessels that contain her heavenly brew at her coffee shop, Bean There, Done That. And both women are learning that owning a business can make finding time for romance challenging.
But when Gina’s new beau turns out to have a wife, who barges into the coffee shop to take him home, she can’t contain her bitterness and loudly threatens to poison his cup or boil him in a vat of coffee. So when Mr. Wrong turns up dead at the bottom of a staircase inside Gina’s locked home, she finds herself at the top of the police’s suspect list. Tallie needs to sweep in to save her friend. But she’ll need to watch her step, or she may go from being a funeral home employee to becoming their next client . . .
“An amusing new series with an engaging, spirited sleuth.” —Library Journal
Of course, lately, that’s rarely how things go around here…
So when a group of ghosts come galivanting into the faire with menace on their minds and weapons at the ready, she’s not overly surprised. Irritated, but not surprised. However, when lightning strikes and her faire is nearly overtaken by revenge-seekers, she’ll use any means necessary to save her people—even the Wild Hunt.
All Verla wanted to do was have Seawaddle trained so the kelpie could have more freedom at the ren faire. Bringing in a top mystical creature trainer seemed like the best way to go. But in this faire of paranormal misfits, almost nothing ever goes according to plan. Between dragons, damsels in distress, and knights who don’t seem to know when to stop knighting, Verla is faced with a challenge unlike anything she’s seen before—when you cut the ties that bind, how far are you willing to go?
Verla’s Days Without Incident Board is counting up the days, and she couldn’t be happier. But she’ll have to go back to zero when she finds a gargoyle in the maze, a kelpie in her favorite fountain, and a phoenix at the forge. Where are these creatures coming from and who brought them in? She’s got little time to find out and even less patience for someone wreaking havoc with her faire. Again. She’ll get to the bottom of this bottle of trouble, no matter what it takes. As long as it’s not her life.
Dealing with demons was not on Verla Faeth’s list of things to handle today. But she has no choice when they show up at her Ren Faire at the same time a dead body is found in the basement of the Tavern on the Line. Did the barkeep’s cousin take his own life, or was he helped along?
Mayhem ensues as Verla, her faithful dog Figiggly, and her ex-husband Finn, do everything they can to save the faire. But at what cost? And will it be worth it to make a deal with a demon?
She tries everything she has in her arsenal to get answers, but time is running out when she finally realizes what they’re up against. No amount of hairspray, jelly shoes, or lace gloves is going to get her out of a confrontation that threatens not only her home but possibly her very life.
