Death at the Door

Death on Demand Mysteries

Broward’s Rock seems a delightful place to live, filled with interesting people and beautiful vistas. But two tragic and violent acts in one week shakes mystery bookstore owner, Annie’s serenity. When local doctor Paul Martin is found dead at his desk with a gunshot wound to the head, it’s quickly ruled a suicide. But the murder of a local arts patron just days later seems to point to the two being linked. Annie and his husband are soon drawn into the mystery, looking at who could have wanted the two dead. Who’s hiding a murderous bent behind a familiar smile? Annie just has to survive long enough to figure out the true suspect in a cast of characters all with a reason to kill.

Carolyn Hart’s mysteries are always fun, well-plotted, and filled with intriguing characters. Max and Annie’s love is always a bright spot, keeping these murder mysteries from being too heavy or depressing. While I would hesitate to vacation on Broward’s Rock due to the high number of dead bodies turning up, I always enjoy reading about the people and sights.

Book Blurb for Death at the Door

From the New York Times bestselling author of Don’t Go Home, Annie Darling—owner of the mystery bookstore, Death on Demand—prefers fictional crimes as opposed to real ones…

In one tragic week, two acts of violence shake the island community of Broward’s Rock. First, a beloved doctor is found shot dead, seemingly by his own hand. Days later, a local artist is arrested after his wife is found murdered, bludgeoned by her husband’s sculpting mallet.

Convinced her brother did not commit suicide, the doctor’s sister turns to Annie and her husband, Max. She has found a cryptic sketch her brother drew, linking him with the murdered woman. Did someone want them both out of the picture?

Now it’s up to Annie and Max to sort through a rogues’ gallery of suspects to see if someone is trying to frame the artist. But if Annie isn’t careful, she may have her own brush with death…
