|Author: Denise Swanson|
From the Publisher:
Devereaux Sinclair was never happier than the day she quit her city job and bought the old-fashioned five-and-dime in her small Missouri hometown. But her happiness is short-lived when murder turns her charming store into a little shop of horrors
When Joelle Ayers, the fiancee of Dev's ex-boyfriend, is found handcuffed to a hotel bed and murdered with a champagne bottle and a stiletto, a revenge-crazed cop is determined to put Dev behind bars. The cuffs and the champagne were part of a gift basket Dev had made and they have her fingerprints all over them. Now the finger of suspicion is pointing directly at Dev.
Desperate to clear her name, Dev enlists the help of her two longtime pals Poppy and Boone. Luckily, the sexy new guy in town, Jake DelVecchio, decides to assist -- and it's a big plus that he happens to be a Deputy U.S. Marshal. If they don't solve this murder, Dev may soon be trading in her charming new life for a life behind bars.
