A B&B that doesn’t serve breakfast, a dead body, and something strange in the room at the end of the corridor . . . Pepper knew moving back home wasn’t going to be easy.
Pepper Jasper moves from Sydney to the cozy town of Lighthouse Bay, answering a desperate plea from her aunts to help with their failing Bed and Breakfast business.
She discovers her aunts are more eccentric than she remembered, the Bed and Breakfast does not serve breakfast, and the cottages for lease have strange themes. And what’s more, within minutes of her arrival, she stumbles across a dead body.
Pepper soon has her hands full, contending with a murder mystery, irritating guests including the enigmatic Lucas O’Callaghan who is convinced every woman wants to fall into his arms, and her aunts, who are hiding more than one deep secret.
Who - or what! - lurks in the forbidden room at the end of the dark corridor?
And why do the aunts insist she drink copious quantities of special label wine?
Find out what awaits Pepper Jasper at Mugwort Manor.
Entertaining story with some unique characters but a little repetitive in several places throughout the book.
Entertaining with a Slight romantic interest.
Cute but clubky
Cute story overall. Development just okay. Some things left unexplained. Writing a bit clunky. Maybe it will get better development wise as it’s an ongoing story. But idk if this first one grabs me enough to continue.
