Book 2: Mia Murphy Series

About the Book

New York Times bestselling author Stephanie Rowe returns with the second novel in her breakout cozy mystery series starring the outrageously endearing Mia Murphy.

No one liked celebrity portrait artist and sexy-times rich recluse Rutherford Callahan, but who would want to kill him? Certainly not Hattie Lawless, the blue-haired senior whose massive nude portrait is currently hanging in the dead guy’s studio…

But the cops disagree, and so does the evidence.

Mia isn’t about to let her new bestie spend her golden years behind bars, so once again, she must break her law-abiding promise to herself and get back in the game, dusting off long-buried skills from her criminal childhood.

With bodies piling up and threats coming from all directions, Mia and her pals are soon ankle-deep in corpses, diamonds, pickpocketing schemes, celebrity wedding drama, and stolen cinnamon bun recipes.

And when it looks like an enemy from Mia’s past has targeted her, the stakes suddenly become much more personal. Not even her smoldering FBI handler or an irritatingly attractive bodyguard cop can keep Mia safe if she doesn’t play by the rules.

And since Mia and rules don’t go together…well…things are about to get dangerous. And deadly. And cinnamon-bun delicious.
