From the New York Times bestselling author of
Between a Book and a Hard Place comes the latest
Devereauxâ€™s Dime Store Mysteryâ€”and it packs a bite.
Opening up a dime store in her hometown of Shadow Bend,
Missouri, Devereaux â€śDevâ€ť Sinclair thought sheâ€™d left the
wilds of city life behind her. But sheâ€™s about to discover
that even rural life can be beastly. . .
Handsome private investigator Jake Del Vecchio has rented
the office space on the second floor above Devereauxâ€™s dime
store, and Dev now finds herself embroiled in his first
case, which involves Gabriella Winston, the missing wife of
wealthy philanthropist Elliot Winston.
Elliot is determined to open a wildlife park on the edge of
town but is facing all sorts of angry oppositionâ€”including
Gabriella. After the Winstons have a bitter fight, Gabriella
disappears, and their house is ransacked. The authorities
are quick to claim Elliot killed his wife, but Devâ€™s not so
sure. One thing is certain: Claws are out in Shadow Bend. . . .
