About this ebook

Cocktails, capers, and corgis in 1948 England!

After receiving a letter about a mysterious inheritance, Sugar Martin hops a plane from the West Coast of America to exciting post-war London. However, everything is not as it seems, and Sugar finds herself stuck in England for the foreseeable future. Fortunately, she’s also been offered a job. Unfortunately, that job means going undercover to solve a series of thefts at manor houses in Devon, England.

Determined to prove her worth, Sugar sets out to find the thief amongst the glittering houseguests, and instead stumbles across a murder victim. With the dubious help of a grumpy corgi and a handsome Englishman, she’s on the hunt for a cold-blooded killer.

From the USA Today bestselling author of the popular Lady Rample Mysteries comes the first book in the Sugar Martin Vintage Cozy Mysteries set in post-WW2 London.

About the author

Shéa MacLeod is the author of cozy mysteries and paranormal women’s fiction. She has dreamed of writing novels since before she could hold a crayon. She totally blames her mother.

She resides in the leafy green hills outside Portland, Oregon where she indulges in her fondness for strong coffee, vintage cocktails, afternoon tea, and dragons.

Because everything's better with dragons.
