Murder in Cottage #6 by Dianne Harman


Liz, a widow, feels she’s been given a second chance at life by owning a successful spa located in a beautiful area on the Pacific coast north of San Francisco. The fact she’s found a romantic interest only adds to the new beginning. What could possibly go wrong? Well, for starters, discovering that a spa guest has been murdered.

In order to save the spa’s reputation, Liz, along with her two dogs, Brandy Boy and Winston, has to find the killer.

The cast of characters includes a handyman, spa employees, the bumbling police chief, the owner of Gertie’s Diner, the dead woman’s husband, his girlfriend, and a Tiffany glass collector. One of them committed the murder, but Liz has to find out who before it’s too late and she’s the next victim.

This is the first book in the Liz Lucas Cozy Mystery Series by a two-time USA Today Bestselling Author.

“I love the way Dianne Harman keeps me guessing right through the story. Even more than that, her work makes me feel at home. I have gotten to know her characters and look forward to each of her new books. Before reading the Cozy Mystery Series, I read her stories about the Coyote Motel and found that Ms. Harman was a serious contender for my reading time. With the Cozy Mystery Series. I could see a TV Series with Judy Dench as the ‘Boomer' sleuth. So nice to pick up a new book that I am certain will transport me to a familiar place. Cedar Bay has become such a place for me. A place I always want to go back to. Keep 'em rolling off the presses Ms. Harman. You're my ‘fave' boomer writer. Her people highlight what I love about America, especially small-town America. Just plain friendly, even in the mysterious, murderous situations in her Cozy Mystery Series.”
