When Laura Lee and her club stumble on the dead body of Mrs. Fitzwater’s nephew, (famous photographer to the stars, Andy) snooping takes on a whole new meaning. Especially when one of the house staff—and member of the book club—swears they saw the nephew later that night… very much alive. From whispers of espionage to the motive of a spurned lover, the book club collective isn’t sure which way is up. Even worse, time is running out as the killer makes them the next target. Someone doesn’t want to be found out and is willing to do anything to keep their secret.
Everyone wants that place they can walk into, slip off their shoes, and feel instant peace. Real Estate agent Stella O’Neil has just listed that perfect home, and now all she has to do is find its new owner.
Nestled in the heart of eighty stunning acres, this cozy cabin with a gorgeous lake view isn’t for everyone, but Stella knows she’ll find its perfect match. But first, she’s got to figure out what to do about the body floating in the lake.
When her phone won’t stop ringing—with potential buyers—Stella’s stress level kicks up a notch. It seems the home is shrouded in legend, and the lake on the property just might hold the key to the truth.
But selling a house and solving a murder are only part of Stella’s problems in this small town. When a potential buyer proves to know too much about her, Stella realizes there’s more going on than she thought, and if she doesn’t figure it out soon, she might just end up the next body in the lake.

The death of a chauffeur just outside the estate gates changes everything and suddenly creepy turns to deadly as Laura Lee finds herself in the middle of a murder investigation. When the police seem unable to solve the crime, can Laura Lee and her intrepid club find the killer before the killer finds Laura Lee?

When Chelsea Lawson's best friend Tilly asks her to stay at her place to watch her six-year-old daughter and pets, Chelsea doesn’t hesitate. Turns out she agreed to manage a micro-farm and "a few pets" included a cow and two goats as well as a little girl too smart for her own good.

The mayor makes it clear she's not wanted and the townspeople give her the cold shoulder, but that only makes Chelsea more determined to uncover their secrets.
No one expected the repercussions those secrets would have, or that murder would be the result. Now life, the animals, and the farm, hangs in the balance. Can Chelsea figure out who did the deed before she—and her new home—are the next victims?
