From USA Today bestselling authors Gin Jones and Elizabeth Ashby comes "fresh" new mystery...

Labor Day weekend starts with a bang in Danger Cove when a dead body is found in the orchard of Maria Dolores' mentor and maybe-boyfriend, Merle! While it's clear the murder took place long ago, the police are still keeping Merle tied up, leaving Maria on her own to run the local farmers' market. She's prepared for the petty squabbles, disorganized vendors, and even a rowdy group of costumed pirates—it comes with the territory. But she isn't prepared for the fresh body found in an isolated corner of the market!

Maria would like to leave the investigation to the local homicide detective, but he's stretched thin with two separate murders, and her nemesis—the farmer who lost out to her for the manager's job—is demanding quick answers or else. With a nearly endless array of suspects, since the victim had upset just about everyone at the market, Maria has her work cut out for her! Can she prevent another murder in the market... or will she end up the next victim?

"I am a frequent visitor to Danger Cove, and eager to stay for a long time. Clever and Engaging Fun!"
