When a baker is found murdered, her cousin must rise to the occasion… Sarah Murray is moving back to her high desert hometown of Bishop, California after the end of her marriage. On the highway south of town, she finds a dog on the side of the road. Unable to leave the poor animal, she pulls over—and finds it guarding an unconscious woman lying in the sand. Realizing that the woman in peril is her cousin, Melody Charters, Sarah calls for help.

Unfortunately, she’s too late, and Melody dies before she can identify her attacker. To make matters worse, the county sheriff deems Melody’s husband prime suspect number one. Knowing that he isn’t capable of such violence, Sarah sets off on a mission to get to the bottom of her cousin’s untimely demise.

Along the way, she meets Melody’s brother-in-law, Jake, and Libby, the troubled young girl Melody hired on a few months prior. As they—along with Melody’s guard dog, Fido—follow a deadly trail of crumbs around town, Sarah must trust her instincts like never before…if she’s to ever sniff out the true murderer.

Books two and three in the Layers of Mystery series—Sniffing Out Trouble and Sniffing Out Scandal—are available to purchase on Amazon. Book stores can purchase though Ingram or by emailing
