Publisher: Electric Prose Publications
Antiques can be a dangerous business. Especially when you’re dealing with a desperate politician, a sexy ex-cop, and a couple of "spirited" companions.
Anna Yesterday owns Yesterday's Antiques in small town USA. When she finds an old newspaper clipping lining the drawer of an antique dresser, she realizes she's never heard the ugly story of rape and suicide detailed on the yellowed newsprint. So she starts to dig, and her sleuthing exposes an ugly cover-up that casts the residents of Crocker, Indiana into danger and intrigue, and leaves them with a corpse.
Yesterday's News is a fun cosy mystery with a couple of great ghosts. Anna Yesterday owns an antique shop in small town Crocker Indiana. Two resident ghosts are linked with the shop and their dialogue is superb. Language from yester-year with a full glossary of words at the beginning make their colloquialisms amply fit their characters. For instance;
"The boy's a grafter. He'll hornswoggle ya faster'n I can spit tobacco into that pan over there"
With the help of ex-cop Pratt Davies, Anna digs deep into Crocker's past and exposes a dirty tale that many would rather forget. A well written story which left me smiling, sign me up for more.

With a sexy ex-cop (who doesn't love a romantic element), ghosts and a mystery that kept me riveted how could I resist? If you like paranormal elements and romance with your cozy mysteries then I recommend this one.
—Cozy Mystery Book Reviews
I absolutely loved Yesterday's News. It's one of those books that plunges you into the characters' world and leaves you a bit sad when there's no more to read.

What I really loved about this book was how the cozy murder wasn't typical and the story was beyond fun to read.
