The last thing Harvey Beckett needs on opening day of her bookstore is a dead body.
All Harvey Beckett help the residents of St. Marin's find the perfect book for that moment and snuggle with her hound dog Mayhem. But when the small, waterside town's newest resident discovers the body of the community's persnickety reporter in her bookshop storeroom just before her grand opening, Harvey can't help trying to solve the crime, even when her curiosity puts her in danger.
The more Harvey learns about the town's history – and the history of the gas station that's become her bookstore – the more she understands that forgiveness is a hard thing to give . . . and receive.
Will Harvey and her friends be able to solve the murder of the town reporter without her becoming a victim herself?
Mystery and friendship mix nicely in this book.
Punishable by Death
Excellent writing. Warm and generous protagonists. Not to gory. Really enjoyed the afternoon read.
Punishable by death
Good book and refreshing reading without all of the torrid details of a crime book. I love the Cozy mysteries. Good author and series. Grandma Fox
