Cassandra Dean has written her first book, one on practical and modern magic. Too bad it should have been a murder mystery, because now she's embroiled in one.
The Havenholm Weekend of Words
This literary festival will bring together the small town's-and the world's-most celebrated authors: new horror writer Brian Vidor, cocky newcomer Chet Ealing, elegant yet racy erotic romance writer Jennifer Thatcher, as well as long-feuding legends Joseph F. Farmer and the always mysterious Maximilian Frowd, long time Havenholm's crotchety recluse.
As the festival gets underway, Caroline Cuthbert, a very famous and somewhat difficult fantasy writer, winds up murdered in her temporary home, hours before she was to host a solo panel at the event. After a callous fan of Caroline's reveals her murder during an authors' panel, Cassy, along with Havenholm's Deputy Sheriff James Jones, are on the case and determined to find the killer.
Even in the literary world, things aren't always what they seem-or what's written in plain sight.
