Publisher's Summary

Darby Piper is in shock. Samantha Porter - her mentor and business partner at Two Girls Detective Agency - has died in a car crash, and it doesn’t look like an accident. In fact, the evidence is pointing toward Darby. 

Darby had expected to inherit Samantha’s half of the agency, but Samantha had recently changed the will to leave it to Tate Porter, her nephew, who returns to town. 

Tate is no P.I. He’s a veteran, a world traveler, and something of a mystery himself. But as he helps Darby delve into secret histories and real estate development plans, he does seem to have a knack for the job. Will the agency have a future...even if Darby can prove her innocence in time? 

This cozy mystery includes a free Hallmark original recipe for Berry Trifle.

Great Mystr

I really hope this becomes a new series! I’ve fallen in love with the characters. Piper and Porter make a great team.

WHAT A GREAT NEW SERIES

OH, I LOVE AMANDA'S AMISH SERIES, BUT THIS ONE MAY EVEN SURPASS THOSE. DARBY, TATE, AND AUSTIN CERTAINLY PROMISE SOME INTERESTING INTERACTIONS GOING FORWARD, AND I ALREADY LOVE DARBY'S FAMILY. THE CHARACTERS, THE PLOT, THE DIALOGUE ARE ALL AMAZING. I CANNOT WAIT FOR BOOK 2

Smart new series

Dean-End Detective moves at a fast pace. Characters are interesting and leaves you wanting to know them more. The private detective agency changed its name at the end setting the reader up for many more enjoyable stories ahead!

Not credit worthy

The dialog sounds like it is a child's book as does the narrator I could not even finish the books and had high hopes for a good detective story and was disappointed
