Publisher Description

In this new mystery series from New York Times bestselling author Stephanie Rowe, the irreverent, underappreciated, and alarmingly talented Mia Murphy risks it all to do the right thing…even if it means doing the wrong thing. 

A high-octane, feel-good romp starring women you'll wish were your best friends, an inconveniently attractive cop, a posse of gray-haired quilters with a fondness for margaritas, and an eccentric town with more secrets than Mia's con artist mom. 

"[Stephanie] Rowe is such an amazing writer. I can get lost in every book she writes." ~Jecaudil (Amazon Reviewer)

All Mia Murphy wants is an ordinary, law-abiding life. 

Accidentally marrying a drug kingpin? Easily fixed with an anonymous tip to the FBI…which resulted in a not-so-voluntary, surprisingly stressful stint as an undercover spy against him.

But with her ex finally in prison and assassins in her rearview mirror, Mia is off to Diamond Lake in Bass Derby, Maine with King Tut, her rescue (aka purloined) cat, to start over.

Upon arrival, Mia quickly finds a couple of soulmates in a blue-haired "I'll show you what old is" café owner and a baton-twirling mail carrier. Life is headed in the right direction...until the trio stumbles across a dead body during a slightly illegal but well-intentioned home invasion. 

When one of her new besties is arrested for the murder, Mia is the only one with the skills to ferret out the real killer…but she can't afford to resurrect her morally flexible past. Can Mia keep her life on the straight and narrow with so much at stake? Or will a homicidal, jet-skiing moose, a dead Mr. January firefighter, and an overzealous mayor take them all down? 

Mia has to step up, or she'll lose her chance for the life she's always wanted and the friends she's never had. Even worse, she might wind up dead…

Stephanie Rowe "has a true gift for bringing her characters to life and making you feel as though you’re right there with them." ~Jenn (Goodreads Reviewer)

"Stephanie Rowe just has this way of pulling me into the stories she writes and leaves me completely ensnared so I lose track of time and sometimes what day it is." ~Joann (Goodreads Reviewer)

"Rowe's books are always good… Her characters are fantastic and so are the storylines. I wish more authors wrote like she does." ~Amazon Reviewer

Very entertaining

As a fan of Stephanie Rowe’s romances I wanted to read her new book, even if it was a departure from what I usually read. I took me several chapters to get into the story, and I found one of the the premises for the plot line a little hard to believe, but as long as I accepted it as truth, everything else made a cohesive whole.
A very good effort for a different genre!
