Love meets murder in this new cozy mystery series set in a quirky romance bookstore, with a heroine to die for.

Lizzie Hale may be the lucky owner of a successful romance bookshop, Love Under the Covers, but she's decidedly un-lucky in love. Though she's read almost every famous romance novelist, from Jane Austen to Nora Roberts, none have helped her figure out how to get—and keep—a man.

But Lizzie has bigger problems to worry about. Like murder.

When Brody Pierce, swoon-worthy ranch owner and resident bachelor, is found stabbed through the chest, hearts were heard breaking all over idyllic Tinker's Creek. But when Lizzie's aunt is implicated in the murder, she's determined to clear her name. Lizzie quickly realizes that Brody was a hunk with many hidden secrets, and she's soon leafing through a stack of suspects longer than Brody's list of lovers.

With the killer still on the loose, Lizzie will have to find the truth before this act of passion ignites a fire she can't put out.


Genre: Cozy Mystery

Praise for this book

"Lizzie Hale is a bookstore owner whose two areas of expertise are baseball and romance novels and she finds herself using that knowledge as she tries to figure out who killed former actor—and local celebrity—turned rancher, Brody Pierce. Add in one hunky park ranger who happens to be a former major league player, one over-sized dog of questionable parentage that always seems to be shedding, plus some small-town secrets and you end up with a charming and funny mystery. Cozy fans will definitely enjoy this series debut—I did!" - Sofie Ryan

"What’s not to like? Mimi Granger gives us a romance-themed bookstore, intrigue, and a cast of delightful characters to make Death of a Red-Hot Rancher a winner of a cozy mystery. Lizzy Hale, owner of her bookstore, Love Under Covers, is both smart and vulnerable as she figures out who in town killed off their most eligible bachelor. It’s a superb start to a series that will thrill readers for years to come!" - Dorothy St James
