- Launch: Celebrate the release of Death on Torrid Ave., Book 2 of USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn's new Secret Sleuth cozy mystery series.
Far from the publishing world that once defined her, Sheila Mackey has found a new life, a new home, and a new love: Gracie the rescue collie. Too smart for her own good – certainly too smart for Sheila’s good, when Gracie discovers a dead body at the Torrid Avenue Dog Park. Not good for an amateur sleuth with a big secret of her own that she intends to keep. She’s not exactly who she pretended to be for 15 years.
Will Sheila untangle the murder mystery before her secrets are untied, exposing her previous identity to her new small-town neighbors?
