The latest title (Jan 5, 2021) in Alice Duncan's Daisy Gumm Majesty series, Exercised Spirits, has dropped to $2.99 at Kindle US. This series seems to have started out traditionally pubbed and moved to sort of self-pubbed, but in any case I have read all or nearly all of the titles in the series and like them a lot. I do have a little bit of bias, having lived in Pasadena for many years in and after college, but still, I really like this series.

When a Woman Mysteriously Disappears From an Orange Grove Mansion, Daisy Gumm, Sam and the Ever Crotchety Lou Prophet, Launch A Search in Exercised Spirits, a Cozy Historical Mystery by Alice Duncan

--1926, Pasadena, California—

Already irked about having to participate in an exercise class with some church chums, Daisy is horrified when her beloved Aunt Vi, the greatest cook in Pasadena, goes missing from her place of employment--Mrs. Pinkerton’s mansion in Orange Grove.

Daisy, Sam and Lou Prophet launch a search, with some help from Mrs. Jackson, a real live Voodoo mambo from New Orleans, who is at present living in Altadena.

In the meantime, food preparation in the Gumm/Majesty/Rotondo households takes a severe downturn. Lou Prophet lends a hand, and the family finds themselves choking down some concoctions they never even knew existed.

But it's going to take more than some clever sleuthing from Daisy, a peg-legged man on a horse and some clever roping to bring Aunt Vi home.
