Keeping a job for one year shouldn't be this hard. Vi's sworn off whipped cream, her favorite bra is strung on a tomato plant, and ghost horse Wastrel has galloped back into her nights...


Vi's kept her attitude in check--at least on the outside--and kept her job. So far, so good. The mysterious trust fund created by her absentee parents might be attainable after all.


But on a hot and sticky day in August, when Vi's hunky boss, Malcolm, is out of town, her estranged parents and long-lost grandfather land on the farm's doorstep with nothing more than empty suitcases and a few scraggly tomato plants. 


Tempers flare and secrets emerge.


Fearing Malcolm will finally lose his patience with her, Vi does her best to keep her grandfather out of the gun safe and her dog out of his precious garden all while trying to curb a lifetime of anger to endure her parents' mystifying visit. 


But that's the least of her problems. The eye thief is stalking them, and he'll stop at nothing to execute his long-awaited revenge.


Vi can barely resist the urge to run out. Will she survive a scorching summer of tomatoes, tango, and terror?


Witty, crisp dialogue and plenty of twists and turns will keep you guessing right to the end of this thrilling and emotional sequel to On the Buckle.

About the author

Carrabus writes from the Lincoln County, Missouri farm she shares with her husband and daughter. A scoliosis diagnosis at age 11 changed her life. A horse lover from a young age, she signed up for riding lessons and learned much more than posting trot. With quiet power, horses provided comfort and a sympathetic ear, never judging or poking fun at her cumbersome back brace. Those years, though often difficult, taught Candace the value of persistence, the healing power of believing in oneself, and how strength can be gained through kindness. Her stories are imbued with the irresistible wonder, mystery, and solace her equine friends have provided.

From the New York Times bestselling author of Once Upon a Grind comes an exciting new installment in the "highly satisfying"* Coffeehouse Mystery series.
 
After the White House asks coffeehouse manager and master roaster Clare Cosi to consult on the coffee service for a Rose Garden Wedding, she discovers a historic pot was used as a CIA "dead drop" decades before. Now long-simmering secrets boil over, scalding Clare and the people around her...
 
Clare's visit to the nation's capital is off to a graceful start. Her octogenarian employer lands her a housesitting job in a charming Georgetown mansion, and she’s invited to work with a respected curator on the Smithsonian’s culinary salute to coffee in America.
 
Unfortunately, Clare's new Village Blend DC is struggling to earn a profit, until its second floor Jazz Space attracts a high-profile fan—the college-age daughter of the U.S. President. Clare's stock rises as the First Lady befriends her, but she soon learns a stark lesson: Washington can be murder.
 
First a stylish State Department employee suspiciously collapses in her coffeehouse. Then the President's daughter goes missing. Is she a runaway bride or is something more sinister in play? After another deadly twist, Clare is on the run with her NYPD detective boyfriend. Branded an enemy of the state, she must piece together clues and uncover the truth before her life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness come to a bitter end.
 
Includes great American recipes!
