Death Takes a Detour

An Outside the Circle Mystery, Book 1

 

A murder. A mystery. A legacy to uphold.

Feuding with her over-protective mother, Abigail Grimshaw rebelliously stops at St. Michael's church against her mother's order to "hurry home," and runs straight into danger.

There, Abbie encounters an unexpected supernatural complication: she sees—and talks to—the Earl of Ashford. He died in 1816, but death doesn't stop this Regency ghost from charging Abbie with the safety of two scared children. A demon has murdered their mother.

She never imagined life would give her an actual mystery to solve, innocents to protect, and evil to banish, but Abbie discovers that she's a Grimm, like her mother before her. There's a long legacy of defending the innocent at stake.


If she cannot master child-guarding and demon-slaying simultaneously, her own legend will be short-lived.
