Jeopardy in January is the first of a new cozy mystery series, set in the fictional mountain town of Calendar where we'll follow the characters through a whole year, starting, of course, with January!
Here's a few things I can tell you:
The books can be read in any order as each is a standalone mystery, with the town of Calendar binding all the characters and locations together.
Every book will feature a different heroine and hero, and you will see them again in other books!
A lot of the characters know each other, but some will be new faces to town.
There's secrets, subterfuge, and romance too!
The twelve mysteries will be published through 2018 and 2019.
Here's January's blurb:
Welcome to Calendar where life is sweet, but death is murder.
Sara Cutler loves her job as head librarian of the public library, an integral part of the historic heart of the picturesque mountain town, Calendar. The combination of old books, quirky clientele, and endless reading is nothing less than perfection for Sara. So when she discovers a body in the rare books section that threatens to destroy her quiet existence, along with the imminent demise of the library, Sara vows to find the killer.
She never expects to receive any help from Jason Rees, the handsome, big city developer whose only objective is to get rid of the library. Sara assumes he is counting on the murder to serve as the final death knell his firm needs to demolish the library. However, that doesn’t prevent him from falling head over heels for the very woman with whom he’s clashing.
When news arrives that the dead woman was nothing that she appeared to be, the whole town is instantly enthralled by the concept of having an actual jewel thief in their midst. Even more puzzling is: where did she hide her stolen treasure?
All Sara must do to save the library is simply solve the murder, find the hidden jewels, and convince herself not to succumb to the one man she would rather see run out town. It doesn’t take long before she realizes that amateur sleuthing isn’t as easy in real life as it is in the stories she loves to read.
Twelve cozy mysteries... one deadly town!
