While playing with it on the playground with his best friend, Toro Quispe, Ellis discovers that someone – or something – is hiding out at Harriet Tubman Elementary and trying to stop children from learning. Determined to solve the new mystery, Ellis, Toro, and his little sister, Freddye, go on a secret mission to find out the truth about the troublesome Buddy Cruster and stop whatever he and his friends have planned.
Join Ellis, Freddye and Toro as their quest leads them deep into the forest on an adventure you will never forget. Ellis and The Magic Mirror was released on August 18, 2015.

Devilish Details

Jazz Vaughn finally gets her own nightclub. Candy Girls has everything necessary for a good time: drinks, music and pole dancers. She's on her way to building a high-class, adult, party-central destination. Her pal reminds her that they never recovered a load of cash hidden by Jazz's old boyfriend. That money could make her business dreams come true at light speed. Okay, so tracking the cash is a good idea. Never mind her ex is a dangerous drug dealer who also happens to smuggle illegal weapons. Small details. Besides, he's in prison. They track down the money, pay some bills and live the good life. What could go wrong?

Well let's see - how about Jazz's former boss settles a grudge by framing her for murder, a crazy gang member is stalking her, and the city decides to shut down Candy Girls. What's a woman to do? Get help from a sexy homicide detective, a collection of her shady friends and come out swinging. What else? 

Three amateur female sleuths set out to solve murder mysteries in their own unique way. With southern fried humor and sass, Jazz, Will, and MiMi are back on the case. These Louisiana ladies add spice to the cozy mystery genre.

From Goodreads readers:

"A fast-paced mystery!" 

" adventure in the game of life, death and watching your back. The characters were well written, funny attitudes and humorous at times. The ending made me laugh as well, which is one of the reasons I will read it again."
