CHICKEN CULPRIT
by Vikki Walton

GENRE:  cozy mystery


BLURB:

Moving to Colorado seemed like a great way to start over. In Carolan Springs, Anne plans to spend her days living the simpler life.

But when her neighbor is found dead in his compost pile, trouble comes knocking on Anne's  door. 

All the evidence points to Anne's other neighbor, Kandi Jenkins. As the young woman begs Anne for help, Anne finds herself thrust into a world of deceit and secrets.

Who had the most to gain from Ralph's death? As the suspect list grows, Anne finds her desire for the simple life may have led her to something sinister.

.


Excerpt:

“Come on, Carson.” With a hard stare from the sheriff, Sam stopped. “I mean, Sheriff Carson. I’m sure Ms. Freemont wants the killer caught like the rest of us do.”

“That’s right. In fact, I have my own suspect list.” Shoot. Why did I say that out loud?

“You do, do you? Are you a private detective, Ms. Freemont?” He stepped closer.

“No. But…” She inched back, stopping when her heel twisted.

“That is the correct answer. No, you are not. You don’t know what you are doing, and you need to stick to doing”—he appraised her—“whatever it is that you do. Leave the detective work to the professionals.”

Was he judging her by the heels she wore? She should never have let Kandi convince her the dress needed heels instead of ballet flats. She bristled at his appraisal. Well, she’d show him what she could do.

“Fine! I’ll just figure out the suspect list on my own.”

“Ms. Freemont, do you know that you can be arrested for interfering in a murder investigation?”

“I’m not interfering.”

“Good. Let’s keep it that way.” He tipped his hat, “Ms. Freemont, Sam.” He strode toward the pub.

Anne sighed in frustration. That man is incorrigible.
