Auld Lang Syne
 No. 6 in The Kate Lawrence Mysteries.

It’s almost New Year’s Eve, and Kate finds herself at her 35th high school reunion, where she is confronted by The Mean Girls, Class of 1978. Not only that, she’s put on a little weight, and her high school steady is expected to show. The only thing that could make the evening worse is a suspicious death. Meanwhile, Strutter’s son is the subject of teenage bullying; Margo and her husband are buying a house they don’t need; and two hurt geese on Spring Street Pond need some help.
Should auld acquaintance be forgot? If only that were possible.

Sample Reviews for The Kate Lawrence Mysteries

“One of the appeals of this series is the main character. … Middle-age adventures are more than a state of mind in this fast-paced mystery.”
--Dee Ann Ray, Clinton Daily News

“…a wonderful mix of characters … a real slice of life … a wonderful book to curl up with on a rainy day.”
--Lighthouse Literary Reviews

“… delightful. The straight-forward plot has some clever twists … in this genuinely entertaining mystery.”
--Mysterious Reviews

“Ivie’s characters  … are not twenty-something Nancy Drews. They are mature, grown-up women with full lives and vivid pasts.”
--The GenReview

 “(Drowning in Christmas is) definitely a cozy but with so much more: great descriptions of wonderful settings, believable characters, and a plot filled with some holiday dilemmas that most readers can actually relate to. … Ms. Ivie has written a delightful tale, a fun read that is laugh-out-loud at times, perfect for the holidays.”
--Marilyn Meredith, Kings River Life Magazine

“It’s Christmas in Connecticut. When a body washes up at the Wethersfield Cove, Kate’s on the case again in a holiday romp through a historic setting, ending in a wedding—but whose? Drowning in Christmas is the most enjoyable Kate Lawrence mystery so far.”
--Joyce Rossignol, Senior Editor, Wethersfield Life

 “[Drowning in Christmas] would be fun to read any time of the year. It's full of holiday cheer and gentle humor and would be especially welcome as a respite from the frenzy of pre-Christmas shopping. Kate Lawrence is a heroine who's easy to like. And if you're familiar with central Connecticut, that's just an added bonus!”
--Carole Shmurak, author, The Susan Lombardi Mysteries
