A stack of suspects
The town of Hokes Folly, NC, is hopping despite the drizzly November chill. The occasion? The mountain town's beloved antiquarian bookstore, Twice Upon a Time, is throwing a bash for its grand reopening. But bookseller Jenna Quinn's peace of mind is shattered when the local library's Director of Antique Books turns up dead in the parking lot—his head bashed in by a glittering pair of vintage glass bookends.
As they examine the murder scene, Jenna and her police detective boyfriend happen upon the only witness—the victim's dog, who flees the scene leaving a trail of bloody footprints behind. The suspect list is voluminous, but suspicion eventually centers on three unsavory individuals who left the party shortly before the victim did.
"Full of delightful characters and enough twists and turns to keep readers guessing.”—Manhattan Book Review
