Was the enticing and alluring Eleanor Prestwould merely a party girl with a trust fund and wander lust or a wealthy philanthropist? It wasn't as if young physician Matthew Paine wanted to know until the peaceful life he'd chosen was interrupted, first by an office visit from Eleanor at his family practice on the outskirts of Raleigh, North Carolina, and then by a murder.
Matthew was happily enjoying his career, playing whatever musical instrument he could get his hands on, coffee with lots of sugar, his family and friends, and history – though not exactly in that order. A loyal friend, Matthew is always helpful and that's exactly what gets him mixed up in the chaos of Eleanor's life. Nothing about Eleanor, Matthew soon learns, is what it seemed.
As he's drawn into the murder investigation, soft-spoken Matthew is thrown together with stoic Homicide Detective Warren Danbury and subjected to his staccato questions and responses. Skeptical of Matthew initially, Danbury comes to rely on his perspective.
Join Matthew and Danbury in Dead Spots, the first in the Matthew Paine Mystery series, as they investigate a passionate murder...or two.
