Welcome to the online home of Karen C. Whalen, author of a culinary, cozy mystery series set in Denver, Colorado – the dinner club murder mysteries.

Looking for a new cozy mystery series? A new murder mystery? Or a humorous mystery? The dinner club mystery series meets all three criteria and is similar to the British cozy mysteries and those cooking mystery books we love.

In the series, amateur sleuth Jane Marsh is always game to try new things now that she’s in the empty nest stage of her life, including joining an exclusive dinner club. Stumbling across dead bodies has also developed into one of her hobbies. Using paralegal skills honed at her job in a downtown law firm, she knows how to conduct an investigation. But her suspicious mind collides with her trusting nature as she stirs up trouble while serving up one dinner party after another.

Included in each book are menus and ideas for readers to start a gourmet dinner club of their own.
