On a peaceful morning in the English coastal town of St. Eves, a handsome stranger meets an untimely end.
St. Eves is a town with real community spirit. It’s the kind of town where people leave their doors open from sunrise to sunset, and friends and neighbours pop in for a chat and a nice cup of tea without waiting to be invited. No one’s ever too busy for a chat and a nice cup of tea in St. Eves.
That wonderful way of life is threatened, though, following the arrival of strangers to the town. Strangers who are swiftly followed by murder.
Is the killer the wealthy boat owner with the big bank balance and the bad attitude?
Or is it his attractive younger wife, who’s keeping secrets and telling lies?
Or is someone else responsible?
As café-bar owner, Charlotte Denver takes up the challenge to help find the killer before they strike again, she uncovers a shocking plot that rocks the close-knit community to its core, and a twist in the tale that no one saw coming.
Come and solve the mystery, and have a little fun along the way, with engaging characters, a little romance, and recipes to try for yourself.

Forced to attend the Student Retention Office’s summer retreat, Professor Molly brings her game of buzzword bingo to fend off boredom.

Now Molly has to fight to keep an innocent out of prison — and herself off the unemployment line.
