Beware of all that goes bump in the night…

“You can never go wrong with a McKinley cozy mystery… These are the little mysteries are a perfect addition to your cozy mystery collection.” –Wifetime of Happiness

Sean and Sara McKinley are excited about the haunted house they’ve set up as a Halloween charity fund-raiser, but things take a ghoulish turn when the reporter covering their story is found dead. With the media keeping mum about how she died, Sara’s curiosity is piqued, and she convinces Sean to take on the investigation.

With the police actively investigating and with no clear indication that the woman was murdered, the McKinleys will need to take a cloak-and-dagger approach if they’re going to carve out the truth. As they troll for leads and work through the skeletons in the reporter’s closet, they unearth a few suspects. If they’re able to narrow them down fast enough, there might even be time for a little trick-or-treating.

McKinley Mysteries are short & sweet just like that coffee you crave. Savor the perfect blend of romance, humor, and murder with zero additives such as foul language, graphic violence or sex. These international bestselling cozies are bound to hit the spot and keep you coming back for more. This is an addiction you can afford to have. Get started today.

Editorial Reviews for Halloween is Murder

“You can never go wrong with a McKinley cozy mystery. Carolyn Arnold is an author whom, no matter what the plot, really makes you feel comfort and ease with her light (but detailed and delightful) writing style. These are the little mysteries that are enjoyed over again and a perfect addition to your cozy mystery collection.”

Wifetime of Happiness

“I really enjoyed reading this story. It has the right amount of mystery and intrigue. I recommend reading it while enjoying a cup of hot cider.”

Out There Reviews & Stuff

“Cozy mysteries are my new addiction. This is my first book by Carolyn Arnold and after completing it her other works were immediately added to my TBR list. Even though Halloween is Murder is part of the McKinley Series, it can be read as a standalone.”

2 Girls & A Book

“Anytime a book by Ms. Arnold crosses my path, a little voice inside me says, “WAHOO! Let the reading commence!” It was with this attitude I approached Halloween is Murder and I am pleased to say that I was not disappointed! So, if you are a fan of Halloween, you can put a little more sizzle in your season by adding Halloween is Murder to your reading list. It is part of a series, yes, but you can enjoy it on its own as well.”

Back Porchervations

“Some quirky characters and twists add to the fun. This is part of a series, but can easily be read as a stand-alone. The pace is quick, typical of other McKinley Mysteries. And like the others, this one does not disappoint.”

Christa Reads and Writes

“A fun cozy mystery. A clean, fun and light read.”

Triple A Book Blog

“I don’t read many cozy mysteries, but this one was great! The writing was good, and the dialog natural. The story flowed well and the ending remained a surprise till the end. I really enjoyed the main characters.”

Paranormal Tendencies

“This is a mystery that is a quick and easy read with a lot of guts at the same time. There are plenty of surprises woven throughout. I love the fact that Carolyn Arnold always manages to throw in plenty of wit and humor to make the story even more fun to read. I personally liked that there were so many likely suspects. It made it even more difficult to predict whodunit.”

Momma and Her Stories

“I liked the light-hearted and comedic addition to the novel… Get ready to be immersed in the world and captivated by the characters she has created.”

On A Reading Bender

“The mystery itself was one that kept me flipping pages…”

Texas Book Nook

“Now that I have read one book in one of what appears to be many series written by this author, she definitely has my attention, and I am very intrigued and interested in reading many more in the future!”

Bookstruck Books and Other Loves

“Arnold does a great job of writing and the book flowed really well, making it an easy and very entertaining read. There were many twists and turns that had me guessing till the end. There was also just enough humor in the book to keep it lighthearted. I look forward to more from this author in this series.”

Melina’s Book Blog

“Arnold creates scenarios that are not easy to unravel and keep you invested throughout the entirety of the novel. I don’t want to be able to figure everything out too early in a novel, I want to be surprised.”

A Life Through Books

“This was my first Halloween book to read (as an adult) and I loved it!!! Carolyn Arnold wrote a delightfully classic mystery! This is book 11 in her [McKinley Mystery] series but I was able to read it as a standalone, and I’m pretty sure I will be getting the first 10 books now!”
