Bones and Roses

(2014)
(The first book in the Cypress Bay Mysteries series)
A novel by

 
 
An amateur sleuth attracts the right clients, the wrong boyfriends—and a kinky killer—in this cozy mystery by New York Times–bestselling author Eileen Goudge.
 
After wrecking her real estate career in a booze-fueled blowout, Cypress Bay property manager and recovering alcoholic Tish Ballard thought she had put her past behind her. But when she opens an old trunk, a bequest from an anonymous benefactor, she finds it filled with bones and roses.
 
Suddenly Tish is plunged into a murder case that dates back to her childhood. Pitted against her high school crush, homicide detective Spence Breedlove, she finds herself in jeopardy—in more ways than one.
 
Can Tish unmask a killer before the man who broke her heart puts her behind bars or, worse, she becomes a corpse herself?
 
Author Nora Roberts raves that Eileen Goudge “writes like a house on fire”—and with Bones and Roses, the first book in the Cypress Bay Mysteries, the New York Times–bestselling author of Garden of Lies delivers a suspenseful plot, memorable characters, and delectable touches of romance.
 
Bones and Rosesis the 1st book in the Cypress Bay Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

Praise for this book

"A sophisticated, cleverly crafted mystery with complex, intricately drawn characters who rarely behave in the way you expect. I never saw the ending coming." - Donna Ball

"Catches the reader in a strong undertow of a plot. Before you know it, you’re being drawn in, out, and under. Expect to become immersed with the indomitable heroine, Tish Ballard, the cast of colorful secondary characters, and Eileen Goudge’s trademark storytelling." - Sandra Brown
