Wednesday, August 24, 2022

Fiona wanted to be a police woman but she was out voted by her Sheriff Dad and her Mom. She left the small town, hooked with a job and a guy who she ultimately broke up with--and went back home. Her aunt had left her a Bed and Breakfast in her will and Fiona was bound and determined to keep it going and make it even better. She also inherited her Aunts beloved Pug--he really is a sweety but it takes a bit for Fiona to fall for him!!

She was told by a local that she no longer owned the B&B-it seemed her Aunt has signed it over to him? Then she found him dead in her Koi pond. She was upset to say the least and since the new sheriff didn't seem to be doing enough Fiona started investigating on her own! She is really lucky nothing terribly bad happened to her!

Just when they thought "case closed"--The real murderer holds Fiona at gunpoint. You really will not guess who it is. Her little dog ends up a hero!!

About the Book: (from Amazon)


Fiona Fleming had hoped inheriting her grandmother’s bed and breakfast and returning home to quiet Reading, VT would be a welcome escape from the city life in New York and her cheating ex-boyfriend. She figured the most excitement she’d face would be making beds, pesky customers and the awful stench coming from her grandmother’s ornery pug, Petunia. Instead, she finds herself elbow-deep in clogged toilets, the town blackmailer floating belly-up in her fish pond and she’s the prime suspect.

She's soon looking for answers in the seedy-side of the tiny town and winds up in dangers she never even faced in the city. While she is surrounded with help from the odd cast of characters in this bizarre town, she’s not sure who she can trust. Her back-up, however, consists of her flighty yet fashionable childhood friend, her grandmothers nosy neighbor and her beloved father who seems to have secrets of his own. Then there’s the buried treasure she can’t figure out and how to get her mind off of how great the new sheriff’s backside looks in his uniform.

Can Fiona uncover the truth before the handsome sheriff puts her behind bars instead of asking her out?

Book 1 in the Fiona Fleming Cozy Mystery series! Can be read as a standalone but will be enjoyed more as part of the series.

A light, cozy mystery read with a reluctant dog loving female inn owner, in a small town setting with quirky characters.

*No cliffhanger! *No swearing! *No gore! *No graphic scenes!
