Welcome to my website!
Hi! I'm Jo A. Hiestand, the author of more than two dozen novels comprising my two British mystery series and a cozy crime series based in Missouri.
My new book, "The Low Road," is the 16th book in the McLaren Mystery series. A mermaid legend threatens to come to life when ex-police detective Michael McLaren investigates two deaths at a Scottish Highland Games event.
For more information about it, as well as my other books, please visit my three MYSTERIES pages.
I also write the Peak District Mysteries and the The Cookies & Kilts Mysteries. There's a page dedicated to each of them, so check those out.
I hope you'll return to my site often to read about new books, the companion music to many books in the McLaren mystery series, and upcoming book releases. Thanks for visiting!
"With LAST SEEN, Jo Hiestand once again moves closer to the front of the class in the British mystery field."
