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?

The Fav Reads of the Month
This month I have to give a shoutout to Atomic Habits by James Clear. Self-help books usually frustrate me over their lack of real help. I even outlawed them like the naughty, deceitful children they are for a while. Perhaps lured by the sparkly cover, I spent an Audible credit on this one hoping to foster some good habits while kicking my bad ones to the curb like yesterday's garbage. Clear's book has made a difference in how I think and act. So, yay, self-help books! Plus, it's an enjoyable listen.
And, coming soon, my review of If It Bleeds by (the master) Stephen King... I'm not worthy, I'm not worthy...
Oh, p.s. Not getting paid to say any of this, but I wish I were...
