Judy Alter - MysteriesAs you can probably tell from my two series of mysteries (Blue Plate Café and Kelly O’Connell), I simply love writing about mysteries!

This page contains my not-yet-serial and/or stand-alone mystery books.

I hope to add more in the near future.


Susan Hogan is smart, pretty – and prickly. There was no other word for it. She is prickly with Jake Phillips and her Aunt Jenny, the two people who love her most in the world. When a coed’s body is found in her car and she is suspected of murder, Susan gets even more defensive.But when someone begins to stalk and threaten her, prickly mixes with fear. Susan has to find the killer to save her reputation – and her life. What she suspects she’s found on a quiet campus in Texas is so bizarre Jake doesn’t believe her. Until she’s almost killed. The death of one coed unravels a tale of greed, lust, and obsession.

“The Perfect Coed—Delightful mystery set in a small college town. Just enough romance to keep the reader turning the pages. I loved that the author wove several mysteries and two romances into one riveting book. She has a great insight into academic life as well as the relationships of her characters.” –Patricia Gilgor
