The Calendar Historical Mystery Novels
The Calendar historical mystery novels feature business girl Minty Wilcox, and dashing detective Daniel Price from newly met to newlywed and beyond in old Kansas City, a place that could get downright deadly a hundred years or so ago.
Book 1 of the Calendar Historical Mystery Series
The first chance Minty Wilcox gets in January 1899, she sets off to find a job as a stenographer/typist in Kansas City. But her search is jinxed from the start because, right off the bat, she doesn’t even get to her destination because some old man with a gun and a sheriff’s badge accuses her of pushing a soldier to his death.
And, in spite of Minty’s efforts to clear her name, bad luck soon spreads like a nasty cold from her to her entire family and to Daniel Price, the mysterious stranger who takes a room at her mother’s boarding house. So Minty decides that only she can put things right. This won’t be easy in Kansas City where living could get downright deadly a hundred years or so ago.
Praise for January Jinx
The delightful, creative, and charming January Jinx introduces a terrific character in Minty Wilcox, a good old-fashioned cozy mystery persona who will surely be able to carry the planned-for series. It’s Minty who drives the readable narrative, and author Juliet Kincaid keeps the pace steady and fast at the same time for quite a readable experience . . . The unique setting of 1899 Kansas City is full of flavor that never overwhelms the story and the characters. With a terrific, original, but still comfortable series concept, there are certainly big things afoot for Juliet Kincaid and Minty Wilcox’s Calendar Mysteries.

Book 2 of the Calendar Historical Mystery Series
It’s February 7, 1900, and Minty Wilcox is hard at work typing up the most recent report of Daniel Price, a detective for Price Investigations. Then, into the office walks Alpha Ledgard, daughter of a local factory owner. Miss Ledgard tells Minty that a worker has gone missing and she wants the agency to find the girl. Minty longs to help. But her boss forbids her to take part in cases except as to type reports. He also orders her to stay on a strictly formal basis with his nephew, Daniel Price. (No office romance allowed!)
But Minty decides to defy her boss and go undercover to find the girl, who may have come to harm. Daniel Price helps Minty investigate, but he also hinders her with outrageous flirtation and other ploys. And, as she digs into the case, Minty comes into danger herself. Will Daniel rescue her? Will Minty even let him try? Read Fatal February to find out.
Praise for Fatal February
In the year 1900, Minty Wilcox has been hired by a private detective agency, her on again/off again beau’s employer, as a stenographer. For this spunky gal, typing and taking shorthand aren’t enough. She wants to be an operative. So, of course, author Juliet Kincaid, accommodates her protagonist by letting her delve into a missing person/murder case, sometimes sanctioned, but often not, by her boss. The ins and outs of the investigation, Minty’s romantic ups and downs, and her inside out family situations are fun to follow.

Book 3 of the Calendar Historical Mystery series
Kansas City, March 1900
As their wedding day rapidly approaches, business girl Minty Wilcox still has many questions about her fiancé dashing detective Daniel Price.
Did he really kill a man?
What else is he hiding about his past?
Why has he never told her he’s rich?
And for goodness’ sake, where are they going on their honeymoon?
This version of Mischief in March now includes the historical mystery short story “Detectives’ Honeymoon” which begins just after the novel ends and answers the question, Yes, where do they go on their honeymoon?
Praise for Mischief in March
So much to like about this book. First, Minty Wilcox, a decidedly modern miss, determined to find a place for herself in a business world dominated by men, but who fears her fiance is keeping secrets from her, including where he plans to take her for the honeymoon. And the fiancé, Daniel Price, chief investigator of the Kansas City branch of the detective agency founded by his grandfather, who faces the likelihood that he will be forcibly walked into jail when he had been planning to walk his bride down the aisle. Certainly not the least are the incredible historical details of Kansas City in the early 1900s, rich with descriptions of well-known buildings and shops and places like Emery, Bird, Thayer to grab a quick bite. Since the letter carrier delivered Mischief in March to my mailbox, I haven’t been able to put it down.

Book 5 of the Calendar Historical Mystery series
In Apart in April, Book 5 of Juliet Kincaid’s Calendar Mystery Series, Minty Wilcox Price runs away from her also grieving husband Daniel after a deep, personal loss. Yet this story of loss, love, and the healing powers of honest work is by no means grim. For unbeknownst to Daniel, his aunt has hired Minty on the sly as a detective to find out what really happened at the estate of the wealthy Lord Richard Nelson the night of April 13th, 1901, while he and his friend were away. As she goes about her investigation, Minty leaves letters to Daniel that contain clues (and sometimes false leads) about where she’s gone. Will he figure the clues out and catch up with her in time to help her solve the case before a killer gets her, too?
For the answer to that you’ll must read Apart in April, Book 5 of Juliet Kincaid’s Calendar Mysteries that tell the story of Minty Wilcox and Daniel Price from newly met to newlywed and beyond in Kansas City, a place that could get downright deadly a hundred years or so ago.
