Three May Keep a Secret

By Susan Van Kirk

An Endurance Mystery

WHERE THERE’S SMOKE…

What’s a retired English teacher to do next? That’s the question on Grace Kimball’s mind as summer begins in the quiet town of Endurance, Illinois. Accepting an offer from the new editor of the local newspaper to write book reviews feels like a good start. Until Brenda Norris, the paper’s dirt-digging investigative reporter, is killed in a suspicious house fire.
Brenda was working on a hard-hitting expose of Endurance, including several cold-case files. Finishing Brenda’s project is the least Grace can do for her old friend. Digging into the town’s history might even help Grace come to terms with a tragedy from her past—or put her own life in danger. As she quickly learns, the notorious Brenda had no shortage of enemies. And Grace thought retirement would be relaxing…not deadly!

Marry in Haste

By Susan Van Kirk

An Endurance Mystery

HISTORY REPEATS…

Life is falling into place for retired teacher Grace Kimball—she’s writing for the Endurance Register and dating its editor, Jeff Maitlin. But when Conrad Folger, the bank president, is murdered and his wife, Emily, becomes the prime suspect, Grace sets out to prove that her former student is innocent. After all, many people had a motive to kill Folger. A list of possible suspects emerges: spurned lovers, unhappy bank clients, and even family members. Then Grace and Jeff find a diary from 1893 in Jeff’s newly bought mansion. It was written by a naive seventeen-year-old who married a powerful judge—and what began as a joyous event quickly turned to terror. As Grace reads the diary, she sees parallels to Emily’s life. Can lessons from the past help Grace clear Emily’s name before the murderer strikes again?

Death Takes No Bribes

By Susan Van Kirk

An Endurance Mystery

Retired teacher-turned sleuth, Grace Kimball, returns to her old high school to investigate the poisoning of Endurance High School Principal John Hardy.

Endurance detective, TJ Sweeney, asks Grace to help navigate these treacherous waters. The murderer is a cold-blooded killer who will not hesitate to kill again. They have no end of suspects. The chemistry teacher who has been teaching about poisons? A spurned lover or her  betrayed husband? A soon-to-be-wealthy widow? To top that off, the drama teacher is producing “Arsenic and Old Lace.” Not the best timing.

Meanwhile, Grace’s boyfriend, Jeff Maitlin, has disappeared on some mysterious errand from his past. Then, Grace gets devastating news. Death is stalking the halls of Endurance High School, and Grace Kimball and TJ Sweeney are only a few steps ahead.
