Murder in the Absinthe Room
at Lake Tahoe
I am querying agents for my debut amateur sleuth mystery
Murder in the Absinthe Room at Lake Tahoe.
Here's the book blurb:
The Lightning Complex Fire roaring through northern California destroys the veterinary hospital where Dr. Rylie Sunderland has worked since she graduated from veterinary school nine years ago. Now without a job, she struggles to regain a sense of control in her life. Her mother and her best friend Sophie convince her to take a summer caretaker position at the Whitaker estate in Lake Tahoe owned by her mother’s friend.
A few days after Rylie arrives in Lake Tahoe, handsome Tahoe City bakery owner Colin Matthews is found dead in the granite-walled Absinthe Room under the Whitaker estate. When the detective in charge of the case informs Rylie that the deceased had a piece of paper in his pocket with her name and cell phone number on it, it gets personal. She had only just met Colin Matthews. Why and how did he get her cell phone number?
Rylie searches for clues to clear her name with the help of her new friends and her loving golden retriever Bella. A surprise ending in the style of Agatha Christie’s Murder On The Orient Express will keep readers guessing until the end.
