THE LAVENDER BUTTERFLY MURDERS
Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Mystery, Private Investigator
When Scotia uncharacteristically takes a week to relax and practice yoga on an island not far from her own Pacific Northwest home, she runs into trouble. Her vacation quickly becomes a new case when the increasingly violent conflict between retreat owners and islanders escalates.
Superb writer Duncan wastes no words; her details are abundant yet precise. And Scotia's a heroine to love: She's quick-witted and courageous while still remaining touchingly human. (Aug., 256 pp., $5.99)
