Ellie Rocca is spending the New Year’s with Sam Kinali in a romantic Vermont inn for a murder mystery weekend with his law school friends. Practically perfect, right? It is, until a real dead body turns up. It’s pretty much an open and shut case. The killer has to be one of the inn’s guests, but Sam can’t get any of them to start talking.
Ellie and Sam find themselves working together to find the murderer, but just when they’re getting close, an arrest is made. Back in Mt. Abrams, both of them know the Vermont police have the wrong man. Returning to the scene of the crime takes them back into danger, but that’s the only way to find out which of Sam’s friends is a killer in disguise.
This novella is 25K words long, and is the fourth in the Mt. Abrams Mystery Series.
