Life is getting strange in Twombly, Illinois.

Jairus Twombly's familial gift of intuition is faltering and his new personal assistant seems to be trying to replace his wife, Amy.

On the Twombly College campus, someone is breaking into the dorm rooms of female students to leave red colored objects including a red golf ball, a red ribbon and a tiny red stuffed dog.

When a recipient of some of the red objects goes missing and is released after being told, "You're not her", and the personal assistant turns up dead with Amy Twombly's elegant crochet hook in her eye, things heat up for Emory Crawford and her chemistry professor and forensic scientist husband, Dr. Jebbin Crawford. When Amy Twombly is arrested for the murder, the police seem sure of her guilt. Emory vows to find the real killer before Amy goes to prison for a crime Emory is sure she did not commit. And who is the strange stalker who loves red? What will happen when he finds the 'right' victim?
Emory, along with the Twombly's Nancy Drew-like daughter, Madison, once more turns to her amateur Miss Marple style detective skills and intuition to solve the mysteries.

About the Author

Slightly quirky, always creative, Pearl R. Meaker has been an artist, singer and craftsperson her whole life. Although she's always had stories in her head, they didn't come out to play with others until the advent of home computers with their ease of making corrections and moving bits around.

After several years of writing fanfiction in the world of Tolkien's Middle-Earth, she took a couple of writing courses and dove into writing original works of fiction, and The Can Be Mysteries were born.

When not playing with story ideas, you can find Pearl playing with yarn - either knitting or crocheting, doing other arts and crafts, bird watching and photographing nature, playing bluegrass fiddle (her husband plays banjo), or relaxing with her hubby on the sofa watching mystery shows on Netflix.

Oh - and reading all sorts of books, but especially cozy and other types of mysteries!

The books in The Can Be Mysteries Series are reminiscent of Agatha Christie's Miss Marple mysteries, which is why Pearl has chosen to characterize her stories as "Murder Genteel."
