In Baubles to Die For, gifted sleuth Page Wright’s inner world is anything but ordinary, yet her outer world craves a revamp from her mountain bookshop’s continuing demands. A summer escape to her beloved cottage on Shell Isle with cousin Betsy Ross always promised fun and relaxation…until this latest holiday. Two constants exist that Page cannot escape: Betsy’s spicy culinary fiascos she’s obliged to chase with endless antacids, and the special guidance she receives from ‘inklings’ when her sleuthing gifts are needed.

Also worrisome is the tall, dark, and too handsome undercover FBI agent, Steve Tanner, living in the bungalow next door. His recent strange behavior defines stealthy. On alert now that trouble lurks, Page must entice an always reluctant Betsy to help when the nudge to act comes, knowing time is pressing.
