From the Author

"Frasier" meets "Murder She Wrote" in this new cozy series by real-life psychologist, Mary Kennedy. Maggie Walsh leaves her clinical psychology practice in Manhattan to move to sunny Cypress Grove, a small south Florida town. She joins the staff of local radio station WYME to host a daily talk show called "On the Couch with Maggie Walsh" where she dispenses humor, advice and a few psychological insights.
But it's not all jokes and one-liners; Maggie finds herself in the middle of a murder investigation in every book. With a host of zany characters at WYME, the help of her flamboyant mother, Lola, and a hot detective named Rafe, Maggie does her best to solve the murders and bring the killers to justice.

More About the Author

I'm very happy that DREAM a LITTLE SCREAM, the second in the new Dream Club Mysteries, is available right now!! Want the inside scoop on the series? Business consultant Taylor Blake has returned to Savannah, Georgia, to help her sister Allison turn her dream of running an old-fashioned candy store into a reality. Allison is also interested in dream interpretation and invites Taylor to her Friday night Dream Club, where members meet once a week to share and analyze their dreams.

Book 1: NIGHTMARES CAN BE MURDER. When a local dance instructor, Chico Hernandez, is found dead in his studio, and the murder scene has an eerie resemblance to one of the dreams shared at their meeting, Taylor can't help but be intrigued. And when her sister, who was briefly involved with the dance teacher, becomes the prime suspect, Taylor and their fellow club members can't be caught napping. It's up to them to dream up a solution to the murder before Allison faces a real-life nightmare

I wrote a little companion guide to the series called DREAM INTERPRETATION, a psychologist's guide, that you might find helpful.What are your dreams trying to tell you? Do you ever dream of being stranded in a strange city in the dead of night, along and afraid? Do you dream of wandering through a beautiful house and discovering hidden rooms filled with treasures? Do you ever dream of loved ones who have passed? Dreams are our passport to our unconscious mind and this brief guide will help you unlock their secrets.

Hope you will visit me at and see what other exciting projects are going on. I'm re-printing my Penguin teen novels with new covers and new titles, GOLDEN GIRL, SECRETS and MOVIE STAR and they'll be up soon. Love to hear from my readers, you can find me on FB, Twitter and LinkedIn. And I blog on The Cozy Chicks (a group of 8 cozy mystery writers) every Saturday. Happy reading! Mary Kennedy

Format: Mass Market Paperback
"Stay Tuned for Murder" is Mary Kennedy's third Talk Radio Mystery novel featuring radio talk show psychologist Maggie Walsh. When the series began, Maggie had just left her clinical psychology practice in New York to host a show at WYME radio in a small town in southern Florida. Although there are prior books in this series, this installment provides enough basic information about the main characters to catch up new readers.

"Stay Tuned for Murder" begins with Maggie hosting her radio show along with guest Chantel Carrington, a flamboyant psychic who claims she can communicate with the dead. While Maggie doesn't trust Chantel, she agrees to attend a séance Chantel is holding at the local historical society. During the gathering, Chantel warns everyone they are in grave danger from an evil presence. The next day, one of those attendees is murdered in her own home. Is this just a coincidence or is there more to Chantel's self-proclaimed status of medium and oracle than it appears? Maggie is determined to find out more about the murder and about the mysterious "Madame Chantel."

Author Mary Kennedy has a clinical psychology practice, and her experience gives credibility to the character of Maggie. Maggie occasionally references psychological theories that help her in her detecting. This makes the book and the entire series unique.

One downside to the book is the lack of involvement of Maggie's mother Lola and Maggie's housemate Lark. While they make several appearances, they aren't involved in the main plot past the first few chapters. Maggie's on-again/off-again boyfriend and police detective Rafe Martino also appears, but the two are definitely in the "off" stage of their relationship.

Stay Tuned For Murder by Mary Kennedy...

The question given is "What did you think?" Well, the answer is, "I think this book was worth the wait, money, and reading time." My only complaint is now I must await the next book.

Cypress Grove, FL will never be the same after two murders, time capsules, historical buildings, development projects, and fortunes being made and lost. Oh, did I forget the Oracle?

WYME radio talk host, Maggie is left to try and solve the above mysteries and even her two 'insiders' the local PD detective, Rafe and a newspaperman, Nick are lost as to clues as to what is happening to their gentle town.

This is all I'm going to say as I truly want you to run out and buy this book now. Treat yourself to a real 'who dun it?' and enjoy yourselves.

`I ran down the list of suspects, feeling more frustrated by the moment. Chantel Carrington was the first name that leap into my mind. Why did I think of her as a suspect? I wrote down everything I knew about her. She was here in town under an alias, her background was murky, and somehow she'd made a name for herself in the motivational field. Could Mildred or Althea have suspected who she really was, or maybe they uncovered some dark secret from her past? Did they threaten to reveal it? I thought of Althea and Mildred. I couldn't picture either one of them as a blackmailer. Irina said that Vera Mae told her Chantel reminded her of someone. Did she mean a celebrity? Or someone close to home? Could Chantel have relatives living in the area? Maybe there was a family resemblance that Vera Mae picked up on? Why had Chantel come to Cypress Grove? Yes, I knew the standard answer, but I didn't buy it. My gut instinct told me she would never choose Cypress Grove as a place to kick back and pound out her memoirs. She'd lived all over the country, and I found it very hard to believe that she'd chosen our little town as a retreat. I put a star and a question mark next to her name. Chantel was still in the running, even though I was drawing a blank as to her motive.'

Maggie Walsh, talk show psychologist for radio station WYME is pondering the murder of two longtime Cypress Grove residences, Althea Somerset from the Cypress Grove Historical Society and Mildred Smoot the town's librarian. Both have were murdered but for no apparent reason. Nothing was stolen and there was no abuse.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Our favorite radio talk show star (and part-time sleuth) is back and getting herself into a new adventure. This time it starts with a psychic (Madame Chantal), who claims to talk to the dead. However when two women, who atttended a seance by Madame Chantaal, turn up dead its up to Maggie to investigate.

I was a bit apprehensive about picking up Stay Tuned for Murder. It's not because I thought it would be bad, quite the opposite in fact. I've read and absolutely loved the first two books in this series. Growing up two of my favorite shows were Frasier and Murder She Wrote, and this series definitely combines the best elements of these two shows.

I liked the mystery part of this book. The addition of Madame Chantel was very interesting, especially with her on-air "chats" with the dead. As I noted in a previous book in this series I love the way that Maggie solves the crime in a clinical way. Maggie is such a great character - she's strong, determined and a genius at solving crimes!

I loved the way the story ended, especially with Rafe and Maggie. I won't give away any spoilers, because you all are going to be wanting to grab this book for yourselves and find out! I will say it has a very satisfying ending and I'm hoping and praying one day there will be more books in this series!
