This is a collection of stand-alone dark thriller romances with a common theme: narrators draw their listeners in to their haunting tales, and these stories have a shocking, life-changing connection to the listeners. "The story, The Mystery Box, that gives this set its name, is worth the price (and much more) all by itself. It's very hard to classify. Sometimes it's a mystery, sometimes predictable. It's both a horror story and a love story. It will leave you outraged sometimes, crying at others. It will set your nerves on edge, and tug (hard) at your heartstrings. Reading it is like being on a very strange rollercoaster. It will run your emotions from one end to another. In several places, it's hard to read without shuddering, shivering, cheering, rejoicing, and crying. The characters are so well written, the plot so intricate, and yet so simple, that it involves you fully in the story without being aware of it. You start in a simple life, with a bored housewife. By the end, if you aren't crying, or at least have tears in your eyes, you are a stronger person than I. It's one of the best stories I've read in my 74 years on this earth."--Allyn, Goodreads Reviewer ★★★★★ "I would have loved to have three separate books instead of a box set. Each one is a gem by itself; three absolutely different themes, each with special ethos. Imagine what will happen if you can travel faster than light! How about becoming an archaeologist! Each plot has been well conceived, properly laid out in a free flowing manner. It is difficult make a choice between the three divergent books. Only choice is to vote them all in!"--venky. Goodreads Reviewer ★★★★★ "I just finished The Mystery Box Set and all I have to say is be ready for three amazing stories that will keep you reading well into the early morning hours. Many nights I had to set down my Kindle to get some sort of sleep."--Rachel R. ★★★★★ "I have only read The Mystery Box and Mystery Man, but although the "Box" is very, very good, the "Man" is excellent. I did not want it to end. Fabulous writing! Kudos to Eva Pohler, who has not disappointed thus far."--Amy C. ★★★★★ "After reading this box set, I am now a new fan of Eva Pohler! Three totally different mysteries that grabbed me from the first page and had me reading until I was finished. Each one as good as the others. I can't wait to read more of her books!"--Jennie Ersari ★★★★★ "I loved this box set. All 3 books were absolutely gripping. The story lines were totally different, but each so very good. So thought provoking, with surprise twist and turns. I read all 3 books in just a few days, as I couldn't put the kindle down."--Goodreads Reviewer ★★★★★ Grab your copy to begin these chilling adventures today!

Seattle Quake 9.2 - They knew it could happen - scientists had been warning them for years. Yet, nearly two million people living in the greater Seattle area went about their daily lives as usual. A Detective Agency thought they had found a missing woman, an upstart radio station was on the air, and an eccentric banker had just started a round of golf. Thousands were driving on freeways, shopping in malls, awaiting flights, working in downtown high-rises, and on buses in the bus tunnel. They knew -- they just didn't believe it could happen to them. Missing Heiress - The Harlan Detective Agency was the best there was when it came to finding missing people. They were also the most expensive, so it was no coincidence that they were hired to find the heir to a fortune totaling over 1.6 billion dollars. Nicholas Gladstone left everything to a granddaughter he didn't know he had until a week before he died, but which one was it - the maid secretly working in the parent's home, an office worker, or the young woman tragically killed in a car accident? Greed and a Mistress - Mark Barrett thought having an affair was no big deal as long as his wife didn't find out. That was before he got arrested for the hit-style murder of a wealthy old woman. What drew the Jackie Harlan Detective Agency to the fascinating trial in Portland, Oregon was the hope of finding a child that had been missing for years.

The first three stories of the USA TODAY bestselling Seasoned Southern Sleuths Mysteries by Kelsey Browning and Nancy Naigle available as a box set! IN FOR A PENNY When Lillian Summer Fairview’s husband up and dies on her, it leaves the last living member of the most prestigious family in Summer Shoals, Georgia, in a hot money mess. Desperate to keep up the family name and give the man a decent burial, penniless Lil makes a shady deal that lands her smack-dab in the slammer. Burdened by her shameful secret and a crumbling family estate, Lil entrusts Summer Haven’s care to her best friend, Maggie, who recruits two more over-fifty ladies to help. But when Maggie discovers that Lil’s restitution is ten times the amount she “borrowed” from the federal government, she’s convinced Lil has taken the fall for someone else’s crime. Will these gals be able to prove Lil was duped, or will the swindler get away with hoodwinking a sweet little old lady? COLLARD GREENS & CATFISHING Southern matriarch Lillian Summer Fairview is settling right nice into prison, until Big Martha, the toughest broad on the cellblock, comes asking for a favor. Her niece has fallen for a guy she met online, and Martha’s convinced Mr. Too-Good-To-Be-True is up to no good. All Lil’s friends have to do is check out the guy and report back. Already tied up with a cantankerous septic system on Lil’s family estate, the grannies don’t have time for another investigation. If Summer Haven isn’t in shipshape before the historic society’s inspection, they’ll be in deep you-know-what. But Big Martha is as persuasive as she is tough, and when the gals poke around, they find the guy doesn’t really exist. Will they be able to track down the elusive Romeo in the scam-filled world of online dating, or will they find themselves in trouble right up to their granny panties? CHRISTMAS COOKIES & A CONFESSION Sheriff Teague Castro made a mistake ten years ago that cost him the love of his life. But Jenny Northcutt has always been the woman for him, and he’s ready to do whatever it takes to get a second chance at love. Jenny is a divorced mother, and she has zero time or energy for romance. But her own mother’s recent move is forcing Jenny to come face-to-face with Teague, the man who destroyed her belief in happily ever. Now, Jenny can’t deny the spark is still alive, but this time more than her heart is at risk. Teague cooks up a plan to woo Jenny, but a local theft could ruin both the Christmas holiday and his odds of winning her over. Now, with a mysterious crime to solve, Teague must once again keep a secret from Jenny. Will their painful past repeat itself, or will they get the gift of a second chance at love?
