There's some fun stuff going on the Cozy Krew page on Facebook.
What? What is the Cozy Krew??? That's where readers who read my books gather and have fun. I love how some of them have gotten together in the real world or even met up at my annual TWO DAMES ON MY MYSTERY TRAIN event every October.
If you want to join, CLICK HERE. We'd love to have you.

Right now is a great time to join! If you don't belong to Facebook (I can see your grumbles and eye rolls), you should try it. It's free and there's so many wonderful authors on there that you get to interact with on a more personal level. That's the best part for me. I love to interact with everyone and some readers just can't make it to book signings or events. I understand that, but I don't want them to miss out, so that's why I have the Cozy Krew. Facebook is easy to join and you really don't have to do much. Just join the group and that's all you have to do. You can be as interactive or not as you want.

Don't worry! Right here on Tuesday Morning Coffee with Tonya, there's still the monthly giveaway and the weekly gift card giveaway.

Right now is a GREAT time to join the COZY KREW! Why??
Because we've started a Tonya Kappes Book READ ALONG for Scene of the Grind.
What is a READ ALONG???
We are reading a few chapters a week until the book is finished. The reason why I decided to do this is because I'm focusing on my self publishing career this year~be sure to check out next Tuesday's Coffee Chat for my 2018 publishing schedule~ and I've written seven books between SCENE OF THE GRIND and COLD BLOODED BREW that there are a few details that I've forgotten.


Since I've got to reread SCENE OF THE GRIND, I thought y'all might like to as well. There was an overwhelming response on the COZY KREW Facebook page that readers wanted to join me. It was go from there!

We are doing them on Monday, 7 PM EST and last night was the first night, BUT you didn't miss out! It's an open thread so people who couldn't make it the first night, can go on and comment when they can. So head on over and join the discussion. It'll be a lot of fun!



This is reader Donna! I'm beyond thrilled for her reason she escapes into one of my books! This is exactly why I write. Thanks, Donn!!!

Another sweet treat to add to our coffee chat....
Here are some GREAT free ebooks that you don't want to miss out on. They are all cozy mysteries that I know you'll love! Just click the photo and be taken right to the freebies!


For all my witchy lovin' readers...isn't this a cute cover?? My friend Morgana Best released the first in this series on January 10th! Currently, she's got it priced at .99! So be sure to click on the cute cover to purchase!


Since we are kicking off the SCENE OF THE GRIND read along, I thought it would be fun to get to know the main characters.



Roxy, as her friends call her, has black, long wavy (as she says, but it's curly) hair. She's a thirty-year old divorced lawyer that moved to Honey Springs. Honey Springs hold fond memories for because she'd spend her childhood summers with her Aunt Maxi and long days at the Lake Honey Springs Pier.

Roxy has decided to follow her dream and open The Bean Hive Coffeehouse on the newly renovated boardwalk.

Patrick is the owner of Cane Contractors. They are the biggest contracting business in Honey Springs. He's lived in Honey Springs all his life. He's tall with big brown eyes that leads to a chiseled jaw that melts into a tender smile.

He and Roxy had summers flings every year. He's really glad she's back.

Maxine, Aunt Maxi to Roxy and Maxi to citizens in Honey Springs, is the sister of Roxy's deceased father. She's very eccentric and reminds everyone of Phyllis Diller. She's a spitfire who is the only woman on the town council. She owns a couple of the buildings on the Honey Springs Pier, including The Bean Hive. She owns a couple rental houses as income. She's a busy-body.

Beaches, Bungalows, & Burglaries Chapter One


“A campground?” I gulped back a good hissy fit, because no one could ever underestimate the power of a good hissy fit, something I’ve tried really hard not to do in years. “As in tiny little metal houses and port-a-potties?” ​ “Well, I think they have a toilet in them” said Stanley Shelton, my lawyer. He eased back in his big fancy, wingback leather chair with his elbows resting on the wooden arms and his fingers drumming against each other. The grey pinstriped suit was of the finest materials and the nice crystal cufflinks were the touch it needed that screamed successful lawyer. “I think the toilet is small, but you’re small.” He rubbed his hand over his bald head and then proceeded to draw his hand over his mustache and beard. ​ I tried as hard as I could to keep it together, but my composure was under attack. ​ “What about my house in the Hamptons? I’ll just go there.” I let out a sigh of relief. It was a perfect plan. “I’m desperately going to miss the New York City apartment, …
