You never get over your first love...how about your first murder? When a man is murdered in her bookstore the night before her grand opening, island newcomer, Delilah Duffy, makes a name for herself as prime suspect. If Delilah Duffy hopes to create a life on the island, she must navigate through a vicious family feud, shoddy police work and the mistakes of her past. Will Delilah uncover the truth before her past and her present destroy her?
We're all just one pain away from lunacy. A seaside inn. An elegant party. A black dress. What could go wrong? For Delilah Duffy, just about anything. With her bookstore failing, the last thing she needs is a party or another mystery to solve. With nightmares, anxiety, and panic intensifying, Delilah doesn’t know what’s real and what’s in her head. With everything at risk, Delilah discovers what’s worse… becoming a lunatic or facing one.
Some secrets are kept to be kind. Torture, pain, misery - that’s all someone else wants for her. When a dinner party turns deadly, Sam goes missing, and Delilah realizes she's being watched, the “book queen with a thing for crime scenes” must battle to get her life and love back. Can love and determination save them or will dark secrets ruin her chances for a normal life? With mysterious messages taunting her and a killer eluding her, what lines will she cross to get to the truth?

The Fav Reads of the Month
Okay, still behind with my reading (full confession here) but I'm catching up, slowly.
After enjoying Foley's The Guest List,
I longed for something less murdery (yes, I make up my own words).
I read and loved The Midnight Library by Matt Haig.
This what-if story really makes you think about your life, in a good way, I think. It'll be on my mind for awhile, so thanks Mr. Haig--as if I don't have a million other things to think about. *Smirk* So, check it out if you're feeling contemplative about life and death or if you just want to read a really good story.
Oh, p.s. Not getting paid to say any of this, but I wish I were...
