Swanson takes a break from Scumble River and delivers a top-notch new mystery featuring a dime store owner. Add two loyal friends, a local watering hole called Gossip Central and a hunky lawman and you have all the right ingredients for another successful series.

Devereaux Sinclair is astonished when Detective Woods shows up at her store accusing her of murdering her ex-boyfriend’s fiancée. The woman was killed with items from a gift basket she assembled. Dev enlists the help of her friends, Poppy and Boone. When a US Marshal, a neighbor’s nephew, also offers his help, she accepts — and soon realizes the chemistry between them is super hot.
