SNOWED IN WITH MURDER (An Otter Lake Mystery Vol 3) by Auralee Wallace / Mystery / Released Feb 2017 by St. Martin’s Press.
Erica Bloom is home again in small town Otter Lake, this time to save her struggling relationship with local sheriff, Grady Forrester. The timing is perfect: her mother is away, the retreat is closed for the season, and Erica has just beaten the storm of the century into town.
Erica is determined to make this visit both sleuthing and hijinks free, but when she arrives at the retreat she finds the lodge swarming with guests. Her mother has re-opened Earth, Moons, and Stars in a last ditch effort to reunite the wealthy but feuding Boatright Family. To make matters worse, the weather is stopping anyone from making it on or off the island.
When a guest is murdered, Erica once again must muster up some investigative skills to unravel all the Boatright’s twisted family secrets to reveal the clan’s killer … or this proverbial dark and stormy night might well become her last.
AURALEE WALLACE is the author of The Otter Lake Mystery series which includes, Skinny Dipping with Murder and Pumpkin Pickling with Murder. She has played many roles in her life, including college professor, balloon seller, and collection agent. When this semi-natural blonde mother of three children (and psychiatric nurse to two rescue cats) isn’t writing humorous novels about quirky characters, she can often be found pontificating about the Golden Age of soap operas or warring with a family of peregrine falcons for the rights to her backyard.
