Hi-do. I’m Nanette and I’d like to welcome you to The Tattered Book and Inn. We are a full service Inn. Come on in. This here is Purdy. She’s the Inn’s cat. If you are allergic, too bad or you can waddle on down to Dixon’s Foodtown and get you some medicine.

Over yonder in that room you’ll find refreshments and snacks that are stocked all day long. If you need something you can ask Malina over there behind the desk, really behind that book. Darn girl always has her head stuck in a book, which reminds me.

You’ll find your room has its own library. If you don’t see anything that strikes your fancy, you can mosey on over to the library. Marcy Carver is our librarian and she’s a little bit of a busy-body. Which reminds me, where are you from? What do you do for a living?

Anyways, you can have breakfast in your room or you can come on down to our communal dinning room. If nothing I’ve fixin’ makes your mouth water, then you just go right on next door to Ben’s Diner. He’s always got some spe…

Welcome to Honey Springs where the gossip is as hot as the coffee served at The Bean Hive Coffee Shop!

Meet Roxanne Bloom, ex-lawyer and who likes to be called Roxy by her close friends. She's the owner and operator of The Bean Hive coffee shop in Honey Springs. Kentucky.  

But when a dead body is dumped on her doorstep like a sack of coffee beans, the cozy coffee shop becomes an all-out crime scene and everyone in the small town is hankering for some good gossip. 

Sheriff Spencer warns her to be careful because everyone is a suspect. Roxy's snooping lawyer skills are on alert and she can't help but brew up a few clues to help find the cold blooded killer.

Two Dames and A Mystery Train Murder Mystery Weekend 2018

The two dames, cozy mystery authors Duffy Brown and Tonya Kappes Books, invite you for a weekend of murder and mystery...sorta....
Join us October 12-13 in Knoxville, Tennessee. The weekend will kick off with a fun pizza party and mystery right at the hotel. The next morning, we'll enjoy a coffee and breakfast at the complimentary hotel bar before we are off to the Star of Knoxville Riverboat.
Boarding the riverboat at 12:30 PM EST and cruise at 1:00 PM EST. On the cruise, you'll be served an amazing southern style dinner (or as nonsoutherners call it lunch), while participating in a murder mystery theater event where you might be the killer or worse...the victim!
Also while on the cruise, you'll be able to purchase books by Tonya and Duffy.
Sadly, the weekend will end after the cruise. BUT don't fear...Duffy and Tonya are working on another TRAIN for 2019, unless Tonya can find an airplane for cheap because she's been spouting Two Dames take it to the land, sea and …
