When a crossword craze turns lethal, can a green PI solve the clues before the killer makes it two down?
With Leafy Hollow in a deep winter freeze, landscaper Verity Hawkes is all out of funds. Setting up a private investigator business seems like the best way to indulge her fantasy and make a few bucks. But she never expected her first case would turn the whole town against her.
As she investigates a shady, million-dollar crossword competition, even her detective boyfriend sides with her neighbors in thinking it's legit. But when the contest seems to connect with scruffy dog walkers and a dead village hoarder, Verity's determined to puzzle out a solution before the whole town descends into a word-smithing frenzy.
With time running out, can Verity find the killer before the culprit delivers another deadly answer?
Snowed Under is the fifth installment in a series of charmingly funny cozy mysteries. If you like quirky characters, twisty plots, and laugh-out-loud moments, then you'll love Rickie Blair's Leafy Hollow series.
About the Author
When not hunched over my computer conversing with people who exist only in my head, I spend my time trying to tame an unruly half-acre garden and an even more unruly Jack Chi. I also share my southern Ontario home with two rescue cats and an overactive Netflix account.
I write The Ruby Danger series of financial thrillers, and a cozy mystery series, The Leafy Hollow Mysteries. The Ruby books reflect my interest in fraud and how it ruins lives, while the Leafy Hollow volumes are more light-hearted. I hope you enjoy them.
