Only one day left until the launch of The Body in the Cornfield.
Staging the musical Oklahoma! in the historic Rose Creek amphitheater seems like a brilliant move, until a feral cat leads Makenzie to a body. The tragedy threatens to halt the Hollywood production, and derails Callie’s plan to evict her husband’s worthless cousin. He has no memory of his night at a cowboy bar, partying with the actors. Callie can’t get rid of him until she proves his innocence. Or guilt. Makenzie suspects half the county of murder. Shanice attempts to eliminate suspects using a mathematical formula, while lawyer Drew wonders if her new client, an understudy with a strong motivation to kill, is telling her the truth. The Rose Creek Reads book club tackles a new mystery with too many suspects and not enough clues.
Rose Creek - Book One: The Body in the Cattails
The Rose Creek Reads flier promised readers the chance to discuss novels and make new friends. It didn’t say anything about solving a real-life murder. When four women join the new book club hosted by a small-town bookshop, their first meeting ends in disaster. The career women are thrown into the middle of a murder investigation that tests their unique skills as a lawyer, a chemist, an IT expert, and a mathematician. If they can’t solve the case, the historic pottery factory will be shut down forever. Set in the northeastern Oklahoma Ozark foothills, a tangle of clues leads the book club to a mysterious code. At first, the new friends enjoy playing detective, until the mystery hits dangerously close to home.
