From the deep, green river valleys and tree-covered mountains of upstate New York to the palm-treed pastures of the Big Lake Country in Florida, these women have found their homes and their hearts in rural America.
These plucky snoops are joined by a transplant from Connecticut, Eve Appel, who moves to rural Florida to set up a consignment shop with her best friend and partner, Madeleine Boudreau.
All these amateur sleuths yearn for the simple, artless existence of hard work coupled with rustic pleasure.
That’s why they live away from big cities, but murder and violence have a way of stalking us, even our plucky heroines, who think they’ve avoided life’s perils.
The Eve Appel mysteries and the Big Lake Mystery series take place around the swamps of the rural south. The Microbrewing series, the Laura Murphy mysteries and my standalone mystery Angel Sleuth are set in the mountains and river valleys of the north. And my short stories and novellas, north and south, complete the collections.
