Every town has its secrets...
Carmel McAlistair thinks she’s found the perfect retreat in St. Jude Without, Newfoundland. Until the murders begin, that is... Could the killer be the sexy fisherman she’s fallen for, or any of the strange characters who hang out in the old church which is now the local pub? The witch next door with her fairies doesn’t help matters at all. This tiny hidden village holds its secrets close, and Carmel as an outsider is the only person who can help Scottish DI Darrow find the murderer. Can he save her from being the next victim? And will he help salvage her heart?
This humorous mystery with a touch of supernatural is the first in the Carmel McAlistair series set in Newfoundland, that wild and wonderful island at the edge of the North Atlantic Ocean.
“Carmel McAlistair is the amazing woman that every woman aspires to be... this combines with intrigue and local politics to make a great mystery with a dash of the supernatural. The characters, and they are indeed characters, are well developed and interesting... I am looking forward to the next Carmel McAlistair novel.”
‘An engrossing story with an expertly described cast of colourful characters. Outport life at its best and its worst. Throw in a murder or two and you have the whole package. A great read! Looking forward to the next in this series.’
‘The characters are well developed. The twists and turns are plentiful. And the ending has a nice twist. A few dangling ends but nothing overwhelming. The attitudes in this Newfoundland village are right on. Well written and easy to read. A good cozy to curl up with on a cold afternoon.’
