Foul Play at the Fair

A Liv Montgomery Celebration Bay Mystery
Berkley Prime Crime
Sept 2012

New York City event planner Liv Montgomery is burned out, sick of the bridezillas, the mad men, the desperate housewives, the anything but sweet sixteens. So the job of event organizer in the small, rural town of Celebration Bay, sounds like a little piece of heaven.

With the success of the Harvest on the Bay Festival, life is sweet, all apple crisp and homemade jams, cider donuts and pumpkin pies. But things hit a sour note when an itinerant entertainer is found dead, pinioned by an antique apple press.

Motives pile up higher than a bushel of apples and Liv must navigate her way through a maze of secrets, lies and Yankee taciturnity to find the killer before the Harvest on the Bay Festival heads for Foul Play at the Fair.

"A delightful read that offers all the charm of a Norman Rockwell painting, but with a much more colorful cast of characters than Norman could ever have imagined!"
~ Cynthia Baxter, author of The Reigning Cats & Dogs Mystery Series
"An engaging heroine, clever plotting and a charming small town setting make this a terrific read."
~ Mary Kennedy, author of The Talk Radio Mysteries
