The Daley Weekly

July 14, 2021



So how have you all survived the heat? Ken and I just happened to be at the coast for the worst of it where the fog brought temperatures requiring a sweatshirt so I really can't complain but I've heard that many of you have suffered record breaking heat. We're home as of today so hopefully cooler days are just around the corner.

I'm working on two cozies simultaneously this week which has me flipping back and forth between a Whales and Tails Halloween and the next Gooseberry Bay which is also Halloween themed. Lost and Found, the next Castaway Bay, will publish on July 20th so be sure to hop over and preorder the Kindle copy if you haven't already. 

Our road trip is underway over at Kathi Daley Books group page. We visited Oahu Hawaii on Monday and Tuesday of this week and will be spending time on Shipwreck Island on Thursday and Friday.  It's going to be a fast and furious trip across the country so be sure to join the group if you haven't already.

As always, be sure to enter to win this weeks gift card giveaway. The entry form is provided toward the bottom of the newsletter. 

Remember, Rafflecopters are only live until the end of the day on Thursday. The winner is selected on Friday.


Twelve friends gathered to shoot off fireworks on the 4th of July – each friend brought a different type of firework and a different food to share. One friend got food poisoning and had to leave, one friend was burned during the celebration and was rushed to the hospital, and one friend got engaged under the colorful sky.

Use the clues provided June 30th, July 7th, July 14th, July 21st, and July 28th to figure out which friend got food poisoning, which was burned, and which got engaged.


Food Brought:
Potato Salad
Macaroni Salad
Green Salad
Fruit Salad

Fireworks Brought:

The person who was burned did not bring a salad of any type

Kathi Daley Books Group Page is on a virtual road trip this summer to all the cozy mystery lands described in Kathi Daley Books 14 series. The trip will be enhanced by your participation and fueled by your imagination so please plan to join us over at Kathi Daley Books Group Page

There will be 12 stops along the way. At each stop there will be gift card giveaways, free ebooks, photos and riveting discussions as our magical tour makes its way from one side of the country to the other.

The dates we will be visiting each cozy mystery town are listed above as are the book titles which will be free for the two days during our stay.

All the free books are first in series and all will be free to anyone through Amazon. You don't have to join in on the tour to take advantage of the free books. I do not control the rights to make the Tj's free so I've selected an alternate book to give away on the dates we'll be visiting Serenity. 
As part of our Cozy Mystery road trip, The Summerhouse, book 1 in the three part story, will be FREE in Kindle format on July 15th and 16th ONLY. 

Also FREE this week will be Harper, a stand in for our stop at Paradise Lake since I don't control pricing for the Tj Series. This book will be FREE on July 19th and 20th ONLY

$.99 thru 7/20/2021
