It was really heartbreaking when my partner in crime and I lost the last bee colony that we had acquired. After a bit of inspection, it looks like the queen had died at some point, so there was no new brood. But now we can turn that frown upside down (yup, I said that) because our bee friend, just picked up a super from me yesterday and said he was going to fill it full of bees, and a queen of course. YAY! More bees! We are back in action. Now I am getting really anxious for Spring. I have bees on the way, flowers to plant and chickens to make a play pen for. This cold weather is just holding me back.

Flea Market Fatal: Missy DeMeanor Cozy Mystery #1 (Missy DeMeanor Cozy Mysteries)
by Brianna Bates
4.1 Stars (60 Reviews)
Genre: Mystery | Mystery, Thriller & Suspense | Women’s Fiction

FREE for a limited time

Missy DeMeanor, voluptuous craft queen extraordinaire, is big and beautiful, disciplined, ambitious, hard-working, resourceful, creative, and – yes, suspected of murder.

Not even a sighting of Missy’s hot ex-boyfriend at the bookstore where she works can deter her from her flea market quest. It’s a perfect September Saturday for garage sale shopping in tiny Grove City, Pennsylvania — blue skies, seventy-five degrees – and Missy DeMeanor is set on scoring that cabinet she’s had her eye on. Driving a hard bargain is one thing, but now the seller is dead – and the so-handsome investigating office says it’s murder!

Who should the investigating officer turn out to be but Tyler Brock, the boy Missy dated in high school, recently returned to Grove City after a decade in Philadelphia, with an undetermined marital status. And he’s acting like he still has feelings for her – when he’s not asking pointed questions and scribbling in his notebook. Surely Tyler doesn’t think she’s a killer!

But the whole town seems in on family secrets Missy’s just learning that could be a strong motive – secrets about a business deal gone bad between the murdered man and Missy’s own father, and about a violent incident involving her mother, whom even Tyler acknowledges to be “the sweetest woman on earth.” Even worse than being suspected of murder? Missy’s mother being suspected of murder. Things have gotten so out of hand that Missy deduces her friend Noreen, the avid mystery reader, is right: it’s up to Missy to find the killer! And like that: a talented amateur sleuth is born.

Since Missy works in a bookstore, devotees of Carolyn Hart’s Death on Demand series will think they’ve come home again. Animal lovers will fall for her dog Cody, and fans of women sleuths, especially light, delicious cozies you can read fast, with no cliffhangers, on-the-page violence or graphic scenes will eat this series up. If you like Gina LaManna, Jana DeLeon, Mary Daheim, and Leighann Dobbs, give Missy a try!

EDITOR’S NOTE: In an earlier version of this book, Missy’s distress came out in a couple of unseemly expletives. She has since gotten hold of herself; this one is squeaky clean!
