Former English professor Cat Latimer is back in Colorado, hosting writers’ retreats in the big blue Victorian she’s inherited, much to her surprise, from none other than her carousing ex-husband! Now it’s an authors’ getaway—but Cat won’t let anyone get away with murder…
The bed-and-breakfast is open for business, and bestselling author Tom Cook is among its first guests. Cat doesn’t know why he came all the way from New York, but she’s glad to have him among the quirkier—and far less famous—attendees.
Cat’s high school sweetheart Seth, who’s fixing up the weathered home, brings on mixed emotions for Cat…some of them a little overpowering. But it’s her uncle, the local police chief, whom she’ll call for help when there’s a surprise ending for Tom Cook in his cozy guest room. Will a killer have the last word on the new life Cat has barely begun?

This is the first book in a new series by Lynn Cahoon, author of the Tourist Trap Mystery Series.
Being a first in a new series you never quite know what you will get, however as I have found with the Tourist Trap series, Lynn Cahoon delivers, and she delivered in a BIG way with this book! There is everything you could want in a cozy mystery, an intriguing mystery with a sub-plot mystery that leaves a cliffhanger at the end of the book, a wonderful and realistic cast of characters, enough backstory to endear you to the character’s lives, and even some romance. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and could gush about so many elements that made this a fun book to read, but I don’t want to give away any nuggets. Go get it and experience Cat Latimer and the whole cast of great characters! I know I can not wait to get my hands on the second book in the series, Fatality by Firelight, coming out in March of 2017!
New York Times and USA Today best-selling author, Lynn Cahoon is an Idaho native. If you’d visit the town where she grew up, you’d understand why her mysteries and romance novels focus around the depth and experience of small town life. Currently, she’s living in a small historic town on the banks of the Mississippi river where her imagination tends to wander. She lives with her husband and two fur babies.
