Short-Circuited in Charlotte

(The second book in the Pret' Near Perfect Mystery series)
A novel by

The next installment in Amy Patricia Meade's Vermont series takes classic mystery high-tech!

When US Forest Ranger, Nick Buckley, is invited to the Creator's Cavalcade to present his employer's environmental initiatives, his wife, Stella, sees the science and technology driven event - which takes place on the grounds of a luxurious nineteenth century estate - as a holiday from the drudgeries of new homeownership and small-town life. However, when the Cavalcade's Founder and Director, Philip Morehouse, is found dead in his bed of an apparent heart attack and the inventor of geodesic yurt housing is discovered bludgeoned to death, it quickly becomes apparent that this will be a working weekend for both Buckleys.

With a cast of characters that includes a Steampunk designer, a robotics engineer, an Italian fiber optic artist, a recycled materials percussionist, a glass-blowing anatomist, and a French chef who is a master of molecular gastronomy, it's clear that everyone at the Cavalcade possessed both the brains and technological know-how to make Morehouse's death seem accidental. But did they? Was Morehouse's death due to an ongoing heart issue or something far more sinister? And how could his death be linked to the brutal bludgeoning of a man who sought to use his creation to shelter the homeless?

Only by embracing her inner "geek" can Stella solve the mystery behind both men's unfortunate demises. But can she do so before the killer strikes again? And, more importantly, can she do so before the Cavalcade's all-vegan menu drives burger-loving Nick to drastic measures?
