The McGowan Tea Party: A Luxe Mystery

235 Alexander Street
Free sample

Meet Enza Biondi—the ballsy, quick-thinking owner of Luxe Affairs. Armed with a pink notebook and killer curves, she’s a party planner with no time for fools and a nose for murder.


Finding a dead body was not the way Enza wanted the McGowan Tea Party to end. She’s been hoping for a quick and easy clean-up so she could spend more time with the tall, dark and sexy guitar player who arrived with the entertainment. Instead, Enza and her partners find themselves in the middle of a crime scene, complete with a grieving client, shaken guests, and a seemingly unflappable guest of honor.


As Enza looks closer at the murder, she starts peeling away the layers of a seemingly perfect marriage and finds that nothing —and no one—is what they first seemed to be, including that sexy guitar player, Connor Ives. Further complicating the situation is a sly Irish ex-mobster, a cold-hearted sister-in-law, and the skeptical detectives in charge of the investigation.


The police may be doing their job, but Enza has more faith in her own instincts, and as she gets closer to the truth, the more her instincts are telling her that the killer may be hiding in plain sight.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • “Stranger Things meets the South. Chilling, hilarious, and suspenseful—I loved it!”—Felicia Day
 
From the authors of Rhett & Link's Book of Mythicality and creators of Good Mythical Morning . . . 

It’s 1992 in Bleak Creek, North Carolina—a sleepy little place with all the trappings of an ordinary Southern town: two Baptist churches, friendly smiles coupled with silent judgments, and an unquenchable appetite for pork products. Beneath the town’s cheerful façade, however, Bleak Creek teens live in constant fear of being sent to the Whitewood School, a local reformatory with a history of putting unruly youths back on the straight and narrow—a record so impeccable that almost everyone is willing to ignore the suspicious deaths that have occurred there over the past decade.

At first, high school freshmen Rex McClendon and Leif Nelson believe what they’ve been told: that the students’ strange demises were all just tragic accidents, the unfortunate consequence of succumbing to vices like Marlboro Lights and Nirvana. But when the shoot for their low-budget horror masterpiece, PolterDog, goes horribly awry—and their best friend, Alicia Boykins, is sent to Whitewood as punishment—Rex and Leif are forced to question everything they know about their unassuming hometown and its cherished school for delinquents.

Eager to rescue their friend, Rex and Leif pair up with recent NYU film school graduate Janine Blitstein to begin piecing together the unsettling truth of the school and its mysterious founder, Wayne Whitewood. What they find will leave them battling an evil beyond their wildest imaginations—one that will shake Bleak Creek to its core.

Praise for The Lost Causes of Bleak Creek

“The Lost Causes of Bleak Creek is like your best friend from high school—kind of weird and a little twisted, but no matter how much trouble they caused, they always made you laugh. You don’t have to be a GMM fan to realize . . . The Lost Causes of Bleak Creek, Will It Awesome Book? F@*# yeah!”—Kurt Sutter, creator of Sons of Anarchy

“Most people don’t read books, let alone write them. That puts Rhett and Link in the top 1% of smart people in the world. Read this book.”—Rachel Bloom, co-creator of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

“It’s scary, it’s fun, and it’s one hell of a carnival ride.”—Kirkus Reviews
