Paintings slashed... Furniture broken… Someone is wreaking havoc at the Blue Moon Art & Antiques Gallery.
Fledgling private investigator Karen Maxwell goes undercover as a salesclerk to find out who’s behind the vandalism, and why. She learns little from Vicki, a friendly clerk who seems interested only in rearranging pictures to display them—and her designer clothes and sports car—to maximum advantage. Eric, the shop’s surly, tight-lipped porter, would run over her with a hand truck before he’d answer any questions. The guilt may even lay with the shop owners themselves, despite the fact that they’re the ones who hired her.
Karen’s investigation seems to be going nowhere—just like her once-promising relationship with Brian, the handsome blacksmith who could sweep her off her feet in a minute… if he’d ever take a break from working with the church youth group. Frustration mounts as her dreams of romantic evenings turn into endless rehearsals for the church Christmas play.
If Karen can’t crack the case soon, she may find herself back to being a plain, old office manager, her dreams of a career as a private investigator—and a life with Brian—as old and busted as the Blue Moon’s vandalized antiques.

About the Author
K.D. Hays is the contemporary alter ego of historical fiction author Kate Dolan. Where Kate enjoys dressing like Martha Washington and cooking over an open fire, K.D. Hays would rather ride roller coasters with her daughter. She started writing and edting professionally in the legal field in 1992, began writing a newspaper column on religion in 1997, and finally decided she was ready to tackle fiction a few years later. When she's not writing, she enjoys taking long walks with her dogs, coaching jump rope and figuring out excuses to go out to dinner. She lives in Maryland with her husband and kids and shares her office with Downy, a mini-rex rabbit who likes to chew on reference books.
