No Place Like Home Publisher's Summary

Comedy with a conscience: The uber-rich editor of Home Decorating Magazine loses everything, including her Ponzi-schemer husband, when their luxury wine-country home mysteriously goes up in flames. But that's just the beginning of Doria's problems.

Homeless, destitute, presumed dead and branded a criminal, the once-proud Doria has a crash course in how the other half lives.

Meanwhile, reluctant sleuth Camilla Randall is facing homelessness and destitution too, as Doria's husband's schemes unravel and take down innocent bystanders along the way.

When the mysterious Mr X. turns up at Camilla's bookstore expressing concern for the local homeless, Camilla is smitten. By now, one might think once smitten, twice shy, but for Camilla, the search for love is a constant triumph of hope over experience.

As ever, Anne R. Allen weaves a unique blend of crazy characters [Mistress Nightshade, anybody?], crazy situations [would you believe a Colombian drugs cartel?] and laugh-out-loud one-liners that all somehow come together and make perfect sense at the end.

Oh, and did we mention the Wizard of Oz?

No Place Like Home is the fourth of the Camilla Randall Mysteries, but can be listened to as a stand-alone novel.

    Perennially down-and-out socialite Camilla Randall - aka The Manners Doctor - is a magnet for murder, mayhem, and Mr. Wrong, but she always solves the mystery in her quirky, but oh-so-polite way. Usually with more than a little help from her gay best friend, Plantagenet Smith. In this hilarious episode she makes the mistake of responding to an online review of one of her etiquette guides and sets off a chain of events that leads to arson, attempted rape, and murder.
