Synopsis

An amateur sleuth attracts the right clients, the wrong boyfriends—and a kinky killer—in this cozy mystery by New York Times–bestselling author Eileen Goudge.
 
After wrecking her real estate career in a booze-fueled blowout, Cypress Bay property manager and recovering alcoholic Tish Ballard thought she had put her past behind her. But when she opens an old trunk, a bequest from an anonymous benefactor, she finds it filled with bones and roses.
 
Suddenly Tish is plunged into a murder case that dates back to her childhood. Pitted against her high school crush, homicide detective Spence Breedlove, she finds herself in jeopardy—in more ways than one.
 
Can Tish unmask a killer before the man who broke her heart puts her behind bars or, worse, she becomes a corpse herself?
 
Author Nora Roberts raves that Eileen Goudge “writes like a house on fire”—and with Bones and Roses, the first book in the Cypress Bay Mysteries, the New York Times–bestselling author of Garden of Lies delivers a suspenseful plot, memorable characters, and delectable touches of romance.
 
Bones and Rosesis the 1st book in the Cypress Bay Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

 
 
 

About Eileen Goudge

See more books from this Author
Eileen Goudge was born July 4, 1950 and grew up in the San Francisco bay area. She began writing at the age of eight. At eighteen, she dropped out of college, ran off with a man dodging the draft, and got married. Two years later, she was divorced, with a baby, and had to go on welfare. She decided to become a professional writer, started writing non-stop and managed to sell a few articles. In the early eighties, she was chosen to help launch a new line of teen romances, which became the successful Sweet Valley High series. She now had enough money to end another bad marriage and move to New York City with her two children. She continued to write the Sweet Valley High titles while working on a novel. Her first novel, Garden of Lies, was sold in 1986 to Viking for nearly one million dollars. Since then, she has written over thirty novels for young adults and over ten works of women's fiction. Her other works include Thorns of Truth, The Diary, and Once in a Blue Moon.
