It’s Thanksgiving Week at the Bean Family Bed and Breakfast in Mystic Grove. Liz Bean is looking forward to helping her family prepare a Thanksgiving dinner and celebration for their B&B guests.
Two months earlier, a traumatic event had prompted Liz to leave her job in the Covert Services Group at Worldhead Global Security out east. After working for four years as a translator on secret government-sponsored missions in the Middle East and Europe, Liz is relieved to be home. She looks forward to a peaceful and enjoyable holiday.
Then everything falls apart. A B&B guest reports that a special ring has gone missing. Then she suggests that another guest might have actually stolen herring. The guest gives them four days to find her jewelry or she’ll call the police. Grandma Addie Bean shivers at the thought of the negative online reviews the guest might leave if they don’t find her ring.
Grandma Addie pairs Liz with Sam Nolan, a quirky private investigator who’s a frequent diner at the B&B. They mesh like oil and water, but Liz knows they have to team up to help the B&B. When their prime suspect disappears, the situation goes from bad to worse.
As they investigate each lead, Liz realizes that she’s not the only one in Mystic Grove who’s keeping secrets. When the truth is revealed, it takes everyone by surprise.

While growing up on the South Side of Chicago, S.F. Bose read all of the Trixie Belden and Nancy Drew mystery books. Inspired by those books, she and her childhood friends scoured their neighborhood looking for missing persons, blackmailers, and murderers. Unfortunately, it was a peaceful part of the city and the budding private investigators couldn’t find a single criminal.
As an adult, S.F. Bose worked as a technology manager for many years, but her true love remained reading mystery books and writing stories. After leaving corporate life behind, she decided to take the leap and started writing and publishing mysteries. When not writing, she enjoys puzzles, cooking, gardening, and thinking up creative ways to murder people.
