Book #1 in the Northwoods Mysteries!
When Emmy Cooper’s life in Chicago is turned upside down, the young interior designer retreats to her family’s lake cottage resort in the beautiful Wisconsin Northwoods for a much-needed break. Hoping to clear her mind and gain a fresh perspective, she looks forward to enjoying a slower pace and the crisp, clean pine air at her beloved Cooper’s Cove Resort with her family, dogs, and her best friend, Whitney.
Unfortunately, her homecoming isn't as calm as she'd hoped when Emmy finds out a ruthless development company is relentlessly pressuring Lake Covington property owners, including Emmy's family, to sell their land so they can build an extravagant, modern resort that would ruin the quaint aesthetic of the area. And things only get worse when Emmy finds the dead body of one of the developers floating in the lake—murdered!
Suddenly the police are involved, and since Emmy's father was leading the fight to stop the shady development from getting approval, he's quickly painted as the prime suspect. Now it's up to Emmy to prove her father’s innocence, save the reputation of Cooper’s Cove, and find out who would resort to murder.
A Cozy Mystery series set in the beautiful Northwoods of Wisconsin - home of tall pines, sparkling lakes, and plenty of adventures!
Thanks for visiting! I am a cozy mystery writer! I grew up on a small farm in central Indiana where I spent countless hours reading in a hammock underneath tall walnut trees (only after chores were done, of course!). I'd write stories in my notebooks or on my parents' old typewriter, pretending I was a combo of Laura Ingalls Wilder and Nancy Drew. To quote a great elf, "I love smiling, smiling's my favorite!"
