Publisher Description

Diamonds, dives, and dead bodies...oh my!

Mira James never imagined life after Minneapolis would be a doublewide trailer outside Battle Lake, Minnesota. Then again, maybe the North Country has more to offer than mosquitoes and broasted chicken. Maybe it has earthy, sexy Johnny Leeson and... jewels?

Local legend claims that a diamond necklace was lost nearly a century ago in Whiskey Lake, near the bank of the present-day Shangri-La resort. Mira, a part-time reporter, goes fishing for the story behind the legend. Her exhilarating treasure hunt uncovers a new mystery and puts her face to face with a menacing foe from her past.

Can she avoid his deadly advances long enough to lock lips with Johnny?

June Bug is a laugh-out-loud romantic comic caper cozy, perfect for readers who enjoy the humorous mysteries of Liliana Hart, Chelsea Field, Gina LaManna, Janet Evanovich, Denise Grover Swank, Amy Vansant, and Stephanie Bond.
