Book 2 in the Juniper Grove Mystery Series Is Out

Death of a Scavenger, book 2 in the new Juniper Grove Mystery Series, is now available on Amazon.

More than a few people in Juniper Grove want Maureen Nicholson dead, so when her body turns up during Juniper Grove’s annual October scavenger hunt, there’s no shortage of suspects or motives. But when suspicion for the murder falls on Rachel Stowe’s friend Holly, baker extraordinaire, Rachel must get to the bottom of the mystery.

Convinced there’s no romance in her future with the town’s police chief, Rachel dives headlong into the case, ignoring his disapproval and risking her own safety. But will she uncover the truth before the killer claims another victim?

Join Rachel and her friends for another cozy adventure in Juniper Grove!

Introducing the Juniper Grove Mystery Series!

I’m so pleased to introduce you to my new cozy series, the Juniper Grove Mystery Series, featuring Rachel Stowe, a cream puff-eating, fortysomething amateur sleuth. The first book, Death of a Dead Man, has just been released.

In the small town of Juniper Grove, newcomer Rachel Stowe has finally found the good friends and quiet life she always craved. So when a stranger arrives in town and stirs painful memories of a baffling episode in the town’s past, Rachel vows to put an end to his mischief.

But events take a nasty turn when Rachel discovers a body in her own backyard and suspicion for the murder falls on her widowed neighbor. Despite being warned off the case by the town’s handsome but aloof police chief, Rachel makes it her mission to clear her neighbor’s name and find the real killer. Can she crack the case before another body turns up?
