Chime and Punishment

(The third book in the Clock Shop Mystery series)
A novel by

Expert clockmaker Ruth Clagan has another murder on her hands in the third Clock Shop Mystery from the author of Clock and Dagger.

Years ago, the serenity of picturesque Orchard, Massachusetts, was shattered by a fire that destroyed the town's beloved clock tower. Ruth inherited the dream of repairing it from her late grandfather. Now that she's returned home to run his clock shop, the Cog & Sprocket, she's determined to make it happen, despite wrenches that are being thrown into the works by her least favorite person, town manager Kim Gray.

A crowd of residents and visitors are excited to see the progress of the tower at a fund-raiser for the campaign, until Kim is found crushed under the tower's bell, putting an end to all the fun. The list of suspects is so long it could be read around the clock, and it includes some of Ruth's nearest and dearest.

Time's a-wastin' as Ruth tries to solve another murder in her beloved Orchard while keeping the gears clicking on her dream project.

Genre: Cozy Mystery
