"I LOVED YOU the first time I saw you. It feels like I have always loved you, as though even before my life began, I was meant to love only you." The handsome young man on bended knee clasped the woman's hand tightly. She gazed into his startlingly blue eyes, and sighed. The romance of it all!
So begins the first chapter of the highly anticipated new novel by Donna McLean. Summer is drawing to a comfortable close in cozy Sparrow Falls, North Carolina, even while unnerving and mysterious thefts are taking place in small towns throughout the southeast. When a bold thief hits Addie's wee carriage house - and dares to do so even in the middle of the day - senior sleuth Tilda MacArdan is determined to find the perpetrator of this rude and dastardly deed, with or without the approval of the local police force. Her efforts send her on a merry chase to find a painted butterfly in a golden frame, and lead her to some revealing discoveries about her own family's surprising past.
Book #4 of the popular Sparrow Falls Mystery series is a lighthearted caper with a touch of romance that is sure to please loyal fans. In response to their requests, Donna McLean has written a delightful "mystery without a murder" that skillfully delivers equal elements of suspense, surprise and humor.

About the Author

Donna McLean's new cozy mystery series has been hailed by reviewers as a return to the classic whodunit that deftly captures a small town feeling reminiscent of Miss Marple's tiny village of eccentrics, friends, secrets and crimes. The American author is a direct descendant of Highland Scots who settled the Cape Fear region of North Carolina in the late 1700s. She chose this historical Southern setting as the perfect scene for her modern-day mystery novels. Filled with friendly folks and their whimsical homes, family reunions on the grounds of ancient wooden chapels, and old fashioned graciousness and hospitality, the idyllic setting leads the unsuspecting reader down a garden path that is filled with surprising twists and turns.
