So when the former bride-to-be unexpectedly inherits Thistle Park, a ramshackle mansion in her ex's hometown of Port Quincy, Pennsylvania, it's a problem she can't afford—literally. Abound with stray cats, peeling wallpaper, and nosy neighbors, Mallory is dying to sell it off—once she finally fixes up both the place and her messy life . . .Turns out, Thistle Park has its charms. But the honeymoon phase is abruptly cut short when an unwanted visitor is found dead on the front lawn. Enlisting the help of her sister Rachel, Mallory vows to unveil the killer before she herself becomes married to the suspect list . . ."I had great fun reading the adventures of nouveau sleuth Mallory Shepard as she wrangles corpses, kittens, and a cheating fiancé in this charming debut mystery." —Laura Levine, author of the Jaine Austen Mysteries"[A] cozy combination of mystery, romance, and recipes, with a little extra bite supplied by the timely fracking controversy." —Kirkus Reviews
