Jordan Cumberledge (not to be confused with Jordan Mayfair) is back from her wanderings in England and has agreed to help me out with some of the social media tools. I’m so glad to be reunited with her!
St. Patrick’s Day and Secrets and Shamrocks
How is it possible that this was six years ago? My copies of Secrets and Shamrocks had just arrived. So exciting!
Book launch at Barnes and Noble, with friends from Nashville State.
A reader in Ireland.
On Saint Patrick’s Day, let Secrets and Shamrocks take you to Ireland with Jordan Mayfair, who always gets herself involved in a mystery!
“A visit to the verdant Irish countryside is marred by murder. The second in Gobbell’s travel series is filled with delightful descriptions of Ireland and offbeat characters…” –Kirkus Review
An Unfinished Canvas is back!
It’s always exciting to open a box of books! An Unfinished Canvas has been out of print for a while now. People continue to ask about the story of the Janet March murder and the ten-year investigation that ended with justice for Janet. So glad it’s available again!
Read about the case and order here: An Unfinished Canvas

Praise for the Jordan Mayfair Mysteries:
“…refreshing debut… seasoned with humor and evocative descriptions of magnificent historic sites, this whodunit should appeal to fans of both cozies and traditional mysteries.” —Publishers Weekly on Pursuit in Provence
“A visit to the verdant Irish countryside is marred by murder. The second in Gobbell’s travel series is filled with delightful descriptions of Ireland and offbeat characters…”—Kirkus Reviews on Secrets and Shamrocks
“Gobbell’s enjoyable sequel to 2015’s Pursuit in Provence takes Savannah, Ga., architect Jordan Mayfair and her travel writer uncle, Alex Carlyle, to Ireland. Jordan’s keen knowledge of architecture and history comes in handy in her efforts to uncover the truth. Fans of travel cozies will find plenty to like.” —Publishers Weekly on Secrets and Shamrocks
“If you enjoy travelling or have a special place in your heart for Tuscany, you’ll love this book. …the reader is treated to cooking classes, Italian cuisine, Italian wine and other drinks, cafes, piazzas, bridges, chapels, architecture, interesting districts of Florence, and, of course, an intriguing mystery. …a complicated mystery and an intriguing travel book.”—Susan Van Kirk, author of A Death at Tippitt Pond, on Treachery in Tuscany
“…a very engrossing mystery novel with interesting characters in a charming setting. …the author’s vivid descriptions made me feel as if I were there. This is an excellent read that I can strongly recommend.”—Jacqueline Seewald, author of Blood Family, on Treachery in Tuscany
