No zen in sight as Sheila Mackey untangles a yoga instructor's murder.
Sheila's settling into life in Haines Tavern, Kentucky. Sure, she has secrets to keep, but things are rolling along nicely. Trips to the dog park with her rescue collie Gracie, meeting her friend Clara and Gracie's friend LuLu. Preparing for more work on her house by another dog park acquaintance, former cop Teague O'Donnell. And regular, relaxing yoga classes at the Beguiling Way studio ... until Sheila and Clara encounter a new twist when someone murders their instructor.
Law enforcement says the killer was a passing-through stranger now long gone. Sheila and Clara have their doubts.

This whodunit with humor is the third book in USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn's new cozy mystery series, Secret Sleuth, which begins with a murder on a transatlantic cruise in Death on the Diversion. In Death on Torrid Avenue and later books, accidental investigator Sheila Mackey returns to dry land in the Midwest, where mysteries abound in her new small-town home.
On the spectrum of McLinn's mystery novels, the Caught Dead in Wyoming cozy series is in the middle, Proof of Innocence is edgier (and has more romance), and Secret Sleuth is a bit less edgy.
