The latest book in the Morelville Mysteries series, A Crane Christmas, is scheduled for release on Friday, December 11th. That will mark the 6th Mel and Dana focused mystery in series to date.
Several months ago, shortly after the release of Book 4 in the series, Hitched & Tied, I decided to do a boxed set that included the first four ebooks in the series from Book 1, Relic through Hitched and Tied. I called it The Morelville Mysteries Full Circle Collection because those four book all represented separate mysteries but the coming full circle of a love story between the two leading ladies who are present throughout the series.
I didn’t say spoiler alert there because everyone knows love stories have happy endings and that Mel and Dana would eventually find their way. I didn’t, however, want to drag their story out forever in a manner similar to what one of my favorite authors, Janet Evanovich, has done for years with her Stephanie Plum character over the Joe Morelli vs Ranger conundrum. There’s so much more I can do with Mel and Dana going forward as a team, after all!
When Book 5 came out, Viva Mama Rossi!, it wasn’t included in the set. That’s made things a little awkward. There have been a lot of set readers who believe the series stops at four books. The fifth adventure is a great one too with no small amount of romance in it. Too, it doesn’t seem fair to offer a set of four books only when there are now nearly six available. For that reason, I’ve decided that, with the release of book six, The Morelville Mysteries Full Circle Collection will go away quietly. It’s time.
You can still get the set for a couple of weeks for the bargain price of $4.99. For tomorrow only, November 30th, 2015, otherwise known as ‘Cyber Monday’, you can get the four book set for only $1.99! That’s about 50 cents a book, a savings of $2.49 off the cover price of each.
If you want the books, get this boxed set eBooks before it’s gone forever and really, what’s better than getting them on sale?
