Murder at Hartigan House: A Cozy Historical Mystery

La Plume Press
1

 There's a skeleton in the attic! Quite literally.

After a weeklong passage from the Atlantic from Boston to Liverpool, Ginger Gold arrives at her childhood home-Hartigan House--to find decade-old remains from some poor woman in the attic.  Ginger's Boston Terrier, Boss, noses out a missing phalange from under the cot.

It's a mystery that once again puts the Chief Inspector Basil Reed. Who is the victim? And how did it end up in Ginger's home?

Clues lead Ginger and her good friend Haley Higgins to a fundraising gala hosted in 1913 by Ginger's late father, George Hartigan. A shadow of suspicion is a man's legacy, and Ginger is not so sure.

Ginger decides to host another gala, inviting the guestlist from ten years previous. Before the night is over, another person is dead.
