Claire Harris is excited to get the keys to her candle shop finally. A foul smell coming from the attic, however, turns her excitement into a living nightmare. There, she finds the body of Jane Brindle, the owner of the tearoom, which had stood in the heart of the village for decades.
Jane’s eventual retirement at eighty after years of fruitlessly hounding her daughter, Em, to take over the tearoom sent her to the south of France, or so everyone assumed. Jane never left Northash, but nobody is admitting to knowing what happened to her. Accusations fly everywhere, with many fingers pointing at free-spirited Em, and even some at Claire for daring to change the status quo.
A charming culinary cozy to be read in one or two sittings.
When an unlikeable retiree passes out while walking home from Felica’s food truck, everyone dismisses the incident as a simple medical emergency, but Felicia’s not convinced. Someone had a hand in Mrs. Dunn’s collapse, and Felicia is determined to find out who and why.

When your free house includes a dead roommate…

There was something strange lurking underneath that seemingly calm and cozy town.
And, as soon as she opens the door to her free house, she figures out why they say nothing is ever free in life. Her ex-husband’s ghost is hovering in her living room, same snotty tone as before, same pretentious beard he always kept perfectly combed.
