From USA Today bestselling authors Ellie Ashe and Elizabeth Ashby...
When Meri Sinclair inherited Dangerous Reads, she didn’t just get a bookshop. She inherited a legacy. It’s Danger Cove’s only bookstore, and her grandmother had made sure that it's a warm and friendly places for readers of all ages.
Determined to get off on the right foot, Meri has organized a series of author readings, starting off with Cal Montague, a Danger Cove native who grew up to become a solid B-list actor, and his tell-all his memoirs, Tales I Shouldn’t Tell. Only the actor turns out to be a difficult diva, and before the inaugural event can even start, Meri finds the guest of honor in the alley—shot dead. Turns out someone else thought Cal shouldn't be telling tales, too.
With motive and opportunity, the police have Meri in their sights. To save her business and her own skin, Meri turns to her small staff of part-time employees for help. Along with some assistance from Danger Cove’s hot new veterinarian, Meri, sets out to help the Danger Cove police—whether they appreciate it or not—before the murderer returns for a sequel.

A Novel Death Review
What a wonderful book! From the first chapter one is pulled into the story. Meri Sinclair returns home when she inherits her grandmother’s bookstore. When trying to promote the bookstore by inviting authors, things get a little out of hand. On to finding out who killed a guy returning to his hometown after making it big in showbiz, with a few skeletons in the closet. Who is the murderer and why??? I anxiously await the next book by this author.
