At the grand opening of the Port Playhouse, Shelby Gunner directs her first Christmas play to a packed house. Spirits are high after the show, and amid the hubbub and excitement, someone leaves a baby outside her dressing room door.

The same night, a young woman and her newborn are discovered missing. As snow piles up and the temperature drops, time is of the essence to bring them safely home.

A suicidal man, found unconscious near Lake Superior, may be the last person to have seen them. Ironically, he can't help because he made a wish... that he had never been born.

Blake and Shelby Gunner think they’re living the perfect life. He’s a hotshot homicide detective and she is doing what she loves best, small theatre acting. But after an arrest goes badly and Blake is shot and injured, they decide to leave the crime-ridden city for the quiet, quirky little hamlet where he grew up. Nestled along Lake Superior in the upper peninsula of Michigan, Port Scuttlebutt isn’t as calm and serene as they anticipated. Below an innocent Mayberry surface are secrets as dangerous as the great lake’s rip currents.
Staying at The Drunken Sailor Bed and Breakfast, they learn that the proprietor’s wife was killed in an unsolved hit-and-run and there’s more to this mystery than meets the eye. The mayor, the librarian, a homeless man, and a rich old woman all have legitimate motives for murder. Can the Gunners figure it out before the killer’s next victim is lying dead in the road?

~~Editorial Reviews:
"ROADKILL by Barbara E Brink has it all. It is an on the cozy-side mystery, fast-paced suspense, and laugh out loud humor. Her characters are strong, easy to like or not, and I found myself easily stepping into the world of Port Scuttlebutt, MI. Blake and Shelby Gunner are in the middle of a life-changing decision when murder and mayhem threaten to derail their dreams. Blake, a former cop is drawn into an old mystery fraught with personal danger. Shelby loves her man and isn’t about to let him go solving mysteries and murders by himself, and decides she’s the perfect woman for the job. Author Barbara E Brink’s talents shine most brightly in this first book of the Double Barrel Mysteries series. -Joy DeKok, Author of Between the Lies.
