Brilliant new heroine Maddie Vaughn-Alwin makes her
daring debut, discovering that speakeasies conceal more than
Madeline Vaughn-Alwin’s picture-perfect life fades to gray
when her childhood sweetheart perishes in the Great War. The
aspiring painter leaves her wealthy New York family behind
to travel across the country and start over in California.
But when Maddie reaches Santa Fe, New Mexico, she halts her
westward journey, certain she’s found her new home amid the
striking scenery and inspiring artistic community.
To help out around her new adobe cottage, Maddie hires the
Anayas, a local Native American family. But when the father
is found murdered outside a speakeasy, the police brush off
the death as just another inebriated man finding trouble.
Shocked and distraught, Maddie takes on the case herself.
But as she investigates, she learns that the Anayas’ home
life was not what it seemed. And just as she’s starting to
see the bigger picture, the autopsy reveals that her
suspects’ alibis don’t hold up in Santa Fe Mourning,
Amanda Allen’s richly evocative first Santa Fe Revival
mystery, perfect for fans of Victoria Thompson and Rhys Bowen.
