Helicopter parents, suspicious squirrels… and murder.
All Susan wants is to get through this visit from her controlling parents without tumbling down a black hole of despair. But galactic forces are colliding at her whimsical B&B, Wits’ End, and her parents have plans of their own.
When two men die on the same day, both mysterious deaths are tied to her mom and dad. Meanwhile, a squirrel scofflaw is riling up the tiny mountain town of Doyle, and Susan realizes she’s the only person who can stop the madness. And if this B&B owner can’t put these crimes to rest fast, her carefully organized life may come crashing to earth.
This fast-paced and funny cozy mystery is book four in the Wits’ End series. Packed with quirky characters, small town charm, and murder, it’s perfect for fans of Jana Deleon, Tricia O’Malley, and Charlaine Harris.

If there’s anything worse than walking in on your parents in the throes of disposing of a body, I don’t want to know what it is.
But I’m getting ahead of myself.
Earlier that day, unaware of the disaster unfolding, I bent my head toward my reception desk and pretended this was a normal day.
“Susan,” Arsen said gently.
I drew careful diagonal lines through the completed tasks in my planner.
“Susan,” my boyfriend said again. “Now you’re starting to freak me out.”
At my feet, Bailey woofed in agreement. The aging beagle sat on my sneaker to punctuate his argument.
I set down ruler and pencil and straightened in the creaky swivel chair. “What am I supposed to do? My two ex-jailers are arriving any minute. They’re going to be watching me like hawks. Any signs of weakness, and…”
He sat on the desk and grasped my shoulder. “First, you’re not weak. Second, you’re not a teenager anymore. You’re an adult. There’s nothing they can do if you don’t let them.” He smiled, his hazel eyes crinkling.
Normally, crinkling hazel eyes would make me melt. This is especially true when they’re accompanied by an easygoing personality, square jaw, and killer smile.
But not today.
