Sean and Sara McKinley find more than a bargain this Black Friday…
The busiest shopping day of the year should be all about the discounts, but Sean and Sara’s trip to the mall brings them a murder to solve. Though the police think the man purposely took a flying leap from the second level to the concourse, the widow is adamant her husband would never have done that. But it’s Sara’s past connection with the widow that has the McKinleys looking into the matter.
The answers aren’t coming quickly—not with mall security dropping the ball and no seeming motive for murder. If the McKinleys are going to find out the truth, it will take unconventional means, a little undercover work, and the help of their friend Sergeant Jimmy Voigt. If they’re lucky, they just might get this case wrapped up in time for the holidays. Maybe even with a pretty little bow.
McKinley Mysteries are short & sweet just like that coffee you crave. Savor the perfect blend of romance, humor, and murder with zero additives such as foul language, graphic violence or sex. These international bestselling cozies are bound to hit the spot and keep you coming back for more. This is an addiction you can afford to have. Get started today.
Guilt Can Be a Motivator
“A quick, fast-paced read with enjoyable characters, a dash of romance, plenty of mystery …”
We’d all had a complicated relationship of some sort along the way, and in Shopping is Murder, Sara McKinley comes face-to-face with one of hers.
For Sara and her husband Sean, this Black Friday was supposed to be a day of shopping and bargains at a local mall, but it turns out to be so much more. They’re just about to buy their last items when screams fill the mall. They soon come to realize that a man has fallen to his death from the second level.
If that alone isn’t enough to amp up Sara’s curiosity as to what had caused this to happen, she soon finds out that the widow was a childhood friend of hers. And theirs was a friendship that fell apart, for which Sara feels responsible. Now, she’s fueled by guilt to find out the truth of what really made him fall to his death. Was he pushed? Did he jump? Was it an accident?
Well, two things are certain, and that’s that mall security isn’t going to be much help as they dropped the ball and it will take unconventional means for the McKinleys to solve this one. But is it asking too much that they figure out what happened in time for Christmas?
