As the new music box store owner and resident of Keepsake Cove, a quaint town full of collectible shops on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, Callie Reed is eager to get more involved in her community. She volunteers to plan the Fall street decorations and welcome a visiting author who’s come for a special book signing. But the celebratory mood is cut short when the local B&B owner is found dead, killed by a pair of vintage scissors.

Suspicion is cast on the victim’s estranged wife, Dorothy, who owns Keepsake Cove’s vintage sewing shop. Callie is sure Dorothy is innocent, and the visiting author agrees. Together, they begin their own investigation, only to discover that many people in Keepsake Cove have secrets. Secrets that are worth killing to keep quiet.

Character Post

Hi, guys. Nice to meet you! I’m Lyssa Hammond, and I came to Keepsake Cove for the first time when they invited me to come for a book signing event around Halloween. I’m a suspense/paranormal author, in case you didn’t know. The invitation came at a perfect time, since workers were banging away at my house in D.C. and I really needed to get away. So I booked a room at a nearby B&B and settled in a couple of days before the event with my laptop, expecting to have peace and quiet to write.

Hah! Little did I know the creepy guy who owned the B&B would be murdered, and I’d be involved in the investigation! Not as a suspect, mind you. But to help prove that the sweet lady who had the bad luck to have married this creep but the good sense to eventually leave him was innocent. She came under suspicion just because she happened to own a vintage sewing shop, and her ex was murdered with a pair of super-sharp antique scissors. Oh, and she’d inherit his stuff because they hadn’t legally divorced, and the only alibi she had was she was sleeping—alone, of course.

Lucky for her that Callie Reed, who owns the music box shop, was totally on her side and had a little experience with solving murders. Well, one. And I’ve written about lots of murders, which counts for something, right? So Callie and I got busy. But I quickly found out that it wasn’t as easy as writing a book. And it could get downright dangerous!

The upside is that I got to know a lot about a lot of people, and a few of them just might show up in my future books—with identifying details gone, of course. And I got to be good friends with Callie, and with her boyfriend, Brian. I won’t write them into my books, but I intend to keep in close touch after this murder stuff is done with. Assuming, that is, we all get out of this unscathed.

After that last incident, though, I’m beginning to wonder…
