Cozy Up to Murder by Colin Conway
A man hiding from his past. A detective hunting for a murderer. This is no time to bake a pie.
“Colin Conway has written the most unusual hero I've come across in a long time. Both touching and sweet with a razor-sharp edge. This is not your grandma's cozy.”
Libby Klein, Author of the Poppy McAllister Mysteries
Today is Owen Hunter’s first day in the coastal city of Costa Buena, California. He’s the new owner of Rockafellers, a vintage record store struggling to find customers. Much of that is due to Headbangers, a competitor with a better product mix and an aggressive owner.
There is also a local do-gooder group who wants Owen to fall in line with their vision for a kinder, gentler Costa Buena.
None of that worries Owen, though, because he is determined to be the number one used-music store on the boardwalk—even if that means stepping on a few toes. But when a murder occurs shortly after his arrival, he’s identified as prime suspect number one.
Owen Hunter must clear his name fast because he can’t afford to have a bunch of nosy cops poking around.
For Owen is a man with a secret that he must protect at all costs. The U.S. government has invested a lot to keep him safe, but his enemies will stop at nothing to find him.
Do prosperity and happiness await Owen in this coastal community?
