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?
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.
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?
MY FAV IDEA
OF THE MONTH
When writing Horsing Around, I was pleasantly surprised to discover how many ideas sparked from considering horses and other animals in character and plot development. That coming-of-middle-age horse story may be the next one I write.
MY FAV READS
OF THE MONTH
Best way to kickstart writing = reading, lots and lots of reading.
Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman made me laugh, cry, and everything in between. Quirky, sad, beautiful. I loved it.
I also loved The Word is Murder by Anthony Horowitz. Bonus: I read it for FREE thanks to Amazon Prime. Funny story: I've been loving Horowitz's British TV for years and downloaded this book on my kindle without realizing it. I loved that he told the story from his own POV, Hawthorne's my new fav detective, and the mystery kept me guessing. I WILL be reading the next one.
