Second in the traditional British mystery series featuring rural inn owner and amateur sleuth Alex Duggins: an intriguing departure for bestselling romantic suspense author Stella Cameron.
Once again Alex Duggins and her veterinarian friend Tony Harrison are thrown into a major murder investigation.
