Ohnita Harbor Mystery Series
Praise for Ohnita Harbor…
If Crisafulli keeps setting her mystery thrillers in Ohnita Harbor (and I hope she will), that fictional little Upstate New York town will not only have as many bodies to bury as Midsomer County but will be as famous as Louise Penny’s Three Pines or even Agatha Christie’s St. Mary Mead – and justifiably so.Jean Zorn, Publisher, Persimmon Tree
Fans of TV’s Murder, She Wrote and who fondly remember the Nancy Drew mysteries will find a new home in Ohnita Harbor, New York.

The latest book, The Secrets of Still Waters Chasm (Sept. 2023), opens with Gabriela’s discovery of two bodies on the beach of a secluded lake—which suddenly disappear after she goes for help.
