National bestselling author Maia Chance debuts
a new series featuring dorky, determined Agnes Blythe and
her glamorous Great Aunt Effie as they form an unlikely team
to save a crumbling inn and crack a murder case amidst the
small-town charm and intrigue of Naneda, NY.
28-year-old Agnes Blythe, the contented bifocals-wearing
half of an academic power couple, is jilted by her professor
boyfriend for the town Pilates instructor, her future is
suddenly less than certain. So when her glamorous, eccentric
Great Aunt Effie arrives in town and offers a job helping to
salvage the condemned Stagecoach Inn, what does Agnes have
to lose? But work at the inn has barely begun when the
unlikely duo find the body of manipulative Kathleen Todd,
with whom Agnes and Effie both have recently had words.
Words strong enough to land them at the top of the suspect
The pair have clearly been framed, but no one
else seems interested in finding the real murderer and Agnes
and Effie's sleuthing expertise is not exactly slick.
Nevertheless, they're soon investigating a suspect list
with laundry dirtier than a middle school soccer team's and
navigating threats, car chases, shotgun blasts, and awkward
strolls down memory lane.
Danger mounts, deadlines
loom, ancient knob-and-tube wiring is explored, and the
ladies learn a thing or two about the awful, wonderful
mistake that is going back home, in Bad Housekeeping,
perfect for fans of Sarah Graves and Kate Carlisle.
