Book Clubs

I enjoy virtual visits to book clubs to discuss the Kinship Mystery Series! I’d love to visit your book club via Skype, Facetime, or Zoom. I can visit in afternoons and evenings. Please get in touch!

Your book club may also enjoy this interview of Jess, answering Frequently Asked Questions she receives at book clubs. Enjoy!

I’d also be delighted to send your book club autographed book stickers and bookmarks. Just email me at, let me know that your book club is reading one of my books, and I’ll get in touch as quickly as possible to arrange visiting and/or sending autographed book stickers and bookmarks. If you’d like personalized autograph stickers, please complete this quick and easy form!

Please allow up to two months to receive book stickers and bookmarks, as I send out these mailings every other month. Thank you!

Reading Discussion Guides

My publisher, Minotaur Books, has created Reading Discussion Guides for the novels in the Kinship Mystery Series:
The Widows Reading Discussion Guide
The Hollows Reading Discussion Guide
The Stills Reading Discussion Guide
The Echoes Reading Discussion Guide

Please note that guides have questions that contain spoilers for the books for purposes of discussion, so please read the books first before looking at the discussion guides.
