    I just discovered the Molly Doyle mysteries and I love them. Is a 5th Molly Doyle book in the works?

    I read your first 2 books and liked the plot but was very put off by all the bad language, so much that I decided not to read any more books in the series. But I scanned through the third one and didn’t see as much filth, so decided to read it. It was much better. Still some dirty words, but not so much. Clean it up more and you’ll be a far better writer. I do enjoy your characters and plots.

    Hi there, are there any new Molly Doyle books available?
    Or any other mystery books by Elaine Flynn?

    I have enjoyed reading her books very much

    I picked up Dealing in Murder while browsing around at the used book store the other day. It caught my eye primarily because my last name is Flinn. It also amused me to see in the acknowledgements that the author had a daughter with the same first name.

    I must say that I throughly enjoyed the book and plan to read the rest of the series as well. It saddens me to find that that she has passed.


    I loved reading these books, I was really saddened to find that Elaine had passed away. It said in the back of Deadly Vintage that she was writing another Molly Doyle Mystery. Is it possible to have someone close to her finish that book, so that all of her fans could enjoy reading one more Mystery.
    Would love to find out.

    I loved your books and the characters were so realistic! When can I look for another in the series?

    Oh, I’m so sorry!!! I didn’t know that Elaine had passed away. My sympathies go out to her loved ones.

    Just read Deadly Vintage. What fun to follow Elaine’s narrative through Carmel, where I was an antiques dealer who both sold to and bought from Elaine. I was hoping to write this fan note to her and perhaps have a little e-conversation with her. I amsad to learn that she has passed away. My condolences to Joe and Sharon. Deadly Vintage was a good page turner and I thoroughly enjoyed it – especially appreciated that she got ‘antiques dealer’ right – for if one is an ‘antique dealer’ one is a Very OLD dealer! What a shame there won’t be any more Molly Doyle stories!

    I was a fan of Elaine’s Molly Doyle series set in Carmel, CA. I got to know the author through DorothyL. Elaine was a very warm person and I miss her.

    I read Deadly Vintage and really enjoyed it. I can’t find the first 3 books. Do you know where I can get the first 3?
