Rebecca Robbins is a woman on a mission---to sell the roller
rink she inherited from her mother and get back to Chicago. Fast.
However, when she discovers the dead body of the town's handyman
headfirst in a rink toilet, potential buyers are scared off. Now
Rebecca is stuck in a small town where her former neighbors think
she doesn't belong, living with her scarily frisky grandfather,
Pop, and relying on a police department that's better at gardening
than solving crimes.
Eager to move forward with her life, Rebecca begins
investigating the murder herself, reluctantly accepting help from
Pop and his extensive social network, which includes a handsome
veterinarian and a former circus camel named Elwood. Nevertheless,
someone isn't happy she's looking into the case, and their threats
will have her questioning whether playing sleuth was such a good
idea after all.
Joelle Charbonneau's debut is a sheer delight---a laugh-out-loud
mystery with plenty of heart.
