The Harlow Brothers are back at Inglenook resort, and not just because Edward is missing his long-distance love, Claudia Inglenook. The former college linebacker turned ghost writer of the Aunt Civility etiquette books is the guest of honor at a charity fundraiser, where he’ll appear as the allegedly agoraphobic Auntie’s representative.
As Edward’s secretary, Nicholas is forced to tag along. His one hope for the weekend is the event will give Edward’s declining book sales a boost. For the record, he despises Claudia.
At the kickoff costume ball, one of the guests is found impaled with the sword from Edward’s Zorro outfit, and as Nicholas scrambles to clear his brother’s name, he comes up against suspects and motives he’d rather not reveal. Then he discovers a secret that could mean the end of Aunt Civility.
Though Edward stands to lose everything, he and Nicholas push to find the truth, but when the killer targets those closest to them, solving the mystery becomes a fight for survival.
When the Harlow Brothers attend a Christmas party at The Littoral Resort, Nicholas discovers the body of an unpleasant sports editor in the men's washroom. The same sports editor who argued with Edward ten minutes prior. With an overabundance of suspects, and several murder weapons to choose from, it may take them until New Year's to find the killer.
From Thanksgiving to Valentine’s Day, laugh away your holiday stress with Frankie Chandler, pet psychic, the Harlow Brothers, the Wilder Women, and crime reporter Evan Miller as they negotiate social gatherings, local theater groups, and family traditions...with a serving of crime.
A gourmand goat, an unwelcome surprise, and a killer who plans to destroy everything the pet psychic holds dear.
The day before Frankie and her fiancé, Detective Martin Bowers, are scheduled to meet her parents in Look Lake, Wisconsin, the pet psychic receives a call that will rock her world. Bowers is in the hospital with life-threatening injuries.
The doctors and police are vague about his condition, and the only witness to his accident is a goat who demands payment in pastries before he'll reveal his secrets. When he does, his responses are confusing...and terrifying.
The only thing Frankie is sure of is Bowers' accident wasn't an accident. But how can she prove it? And will the sudden appearance of her fiancé's scary sister Edith lead her to answers? Or more questions?
