Introduction

A REESEâ??S BOOK CLUB PICK

Nothing brings a family together like a murder next door.

â??The perfect mix of family drama and murder mysteryâ? (Kellye Garrett, award-winning author) in this lighthearted whodunnit about a grandmother-mother-daughter trio of amateur sleuths. Think: Gilmore Girls, but with murder.

High-powered businesswoman Lana Rubicon has a lot to be proud of:her keen intelligence, impeccable taste, and the L.A. real estate empire sheâ??s built. But when she finds herself trapped 300 miles north of the city, convalescing in a sleepy coastal town with her adult daughter Beth and teenage granddaughter Jack, Lana is stuck counting otters instead of square footageâ??and hoping that boredom wonâ??t kill her before the cancer does.

Then Jackâ??tiny in stature but fiercely independentâ??happens upon a dead body while kayaking. She quickly becomes a suspect in the homicide investigation, and the Rubicon women are thrown into chaos. Beth thinks Lana should focus on recovery, but Lana has a better idea. Sheâ??ll pull on her wig, find the true murderer, protect her family, and prove she still has power.

With Jack and Bethâ??s help, Lana uncovers a web of lies, family vendettas, and land disputes lurking beneath the surface of a community populated by folksy conservationists and wealthy ranchers. But as their amateur snooping advances into ever-more dangerous territory, the headstrong Rubicon women must learn to do the one thing theyâ??ve always resisted: depend on each other.

Loved this multi-generational trio as they grew w closer and grapple with a murder. Excellent! People who prefer military science fiction or shoot ‘em up thrillers would not like it, as has emphasis... (read more)
