When Ellison Russell is nearly killed at a benefactors’ party, she brushes the incident aside as an unhappy accident. But when her house is fire-bombed, she’s shot at, and the person sitting next to her at a gala is poisoned, she must face facts. Someone wants her dead. But why? And can Ellison find the killer before he strikes again? Add in an estranged sister, a visiting aunt with a shocking secret, and a handsome detective staying in her guesthouse, and Ellison might need more than cream in her coffee…
I must say, I didn’t have great expectations when I started this book and therefore liking this book was an absolute surprise to me, I didn’t think I would enjoy this book so much. The main character is just so lovable, the side characters entertaining and the setting interesting and different. I will definitely look out for this author in the future!
