Overview

"I laughed, gasped, and cried (all out loud)." ―Catriona McPherson, author of Scot and Soda

Librarian and aspiring PI Mira James has discovered one corpse a month for each of the eleven months she's lived in Battle Lake, Minnesota. She'd give her left foot to break that streak this April.

Then she stumbles across that disturbing note, and a Battle Lake girl vanishes.

She follows the note's trail and is horrified to discover that it leads to her father, who died 13 years earlier in a drunk driving crash that killed innocents.

To make matters worse, chiseled police chief Gary Wohnt is scrutinizing her every move, aching to finally put her behind bars. And the cherry on this crap sundae? Mira discovers that her sexy Adonis boyfriend, Johnny, is planning a surprise for her. Problem is, she doesn't know if it's a marriage proposal or an intervention.

As Mrs. Berns and Mira take on their final case together, Mira discovers it's more personal than she could have imagined, and that she holds not only the life of the kidnapped girl but the fate of all Battle Lake in her hands.

PRAISE FOR APRIL FOOLS

"I read this out of order. It made no difference and I absolutely loved it...What sets this book apart is that it...doesn't feel like your average vanilla, 'the librarian is the sleuth' mystery...this is a fast-paced page turner." ―Jane B. (NetGalley, five stars)

"What a fun, cheeky, cleverly-plotted book! This is well-constructed and kept me interested throughout. I'm not the typical 'mystery reader' but the cover drew me in and I was very glad I gave it a chance. Recommend!" ―Jenna H. (NetGalley, four stars)
