College Librarian India Hayes is back and better than ever in this new entry to Amanda Flower’s Agatha Award-nominated series.
India’s annoyance turns to suspicion as she discovers the body of Zen-like basket weaver‚ Tess Ross‚ on the festival grounds. Tess leaves behind an angry blacksmith husband‚ a confused adopted son‚ greedy siblings‚ a dysfunctional artists’ co-op‚ and a chocolate-colored labradoodle with a two-million-dollar trust in his name. India finds herself playing sleuth as well as foster-owner to the two-million-dollar labradoodle. With her own eccentric family commenting from the sidelines and her Irish-centric landlady‚ Ina Carroll‚ as volunteer sidekick‚ India must discover the truth before she has a permanent canine houseguest or she ends up the next victim in the basket weaver’s murder.
"The satisfying conclusion will leave cozy fans eager for India's next adventure."
