The first book in the popular cozy mystery series laced with humor and romance…
"I loved every minute of reading this book. I couldn't figure out who did what. The characters are wonderful. Funny, tough. Can't wait to read the next book."
A financial Ponzi-style fraud costs the Wilsons everything but the old family manse. Turning it into the Four Acorns Inn sounds like a good idea, except for one thing -- someone is out to ruin them anyway possible, and that includes murder.
The elderly ladies at the inn have a better romantic life than "Miz Scarlet", the forty-something innkeeper. Is she cursed when it comes to men, or is there something more sinister going on?
What does it have to do with the Jordan family, who disappeared without a trace? When one of "Miz Scarlet's" dogs digs up clothing belonging to the Jordan children, her fears are only heightened. Her old high school heartthrob, now a security consultant, arrives to take charge just as a second guest meets a gruesome death. As the tension builds in this psychological thriller, the wild ride sweeps her closer to a dark, sinister secret that threatens her whole family. Long buried secrets, like skeletons in the family closet, begin to emerge. Is there a killer lurking inside the Four Acorns Inn?
