The Bachelor Girl's Guide to Murder Audiobook

The Bachelor Girl's Guide to Murder

Author: Rachel Mcmillan Narrator: Marnye Young Release Date: June 2020

In 1910 Toronto, while other bachelor girls perfect their domestic skills and find husbands, two friends perfect their sleuthing skills and find a murderer. Inspired by their fascination with all things Sherlock Holmes, best friends and flatmates Merinda and Jem launch a consulting detective business. The deaths of young Irish women lead Merinda and Jem deeper into the mire of the city's underbelly, where the high hopes of those dreaming to make a new life in Canada are met with prejudice and squalor. While searching for answers, donning disguises, and sneaking around where no proper ladies would ever go, they pair with Jasper Forth, a police constable, and Ray DeLuca, a reporter in whom Jem takes a more than professional interest. Merinda could well be Toronto's premiere consulting detective, and Jem may just find a way to put her bachelor girlhood behind her forever-if they can stay alive long enough to do so.

As Elizabeth and Mike dig, area rancher Thomas Burrell joins the investigation, providing background on suspects — and there are plenty because the victim had many enemies. But Tom has divided loyalties, so Elizabeth doubts his commitment to finding the truth no matter what. Not to mention that both Mike and Tom show an interest in her ... they might be okay with working together in a peculiar triangle, but the points of this geometry is starting to get under her skin. … From the tip of the rodeo queen's tiara, to 'agricultural byproducts' ground into the arena dust, TV reporter Elizabeth Danniher receives a murderous introduction to the world of rodeo.    Don't miss any of Elizabeth Danniher's Caught Dead in Wyoming adventures in: Sign Off Left Hanging Shoot First Last Ditch Look Live Back Story Cold Open Hot Roll Reaction Shot Body Brace   'Colorful characters, intriguing, intelligent mystery, plus the state of Wyoming leaping off every page.' -- Emilie Richards, USA Today bestselling author   What people are saying about LEFT HANGING: 'I started laughing on the first page and continued laughing until the end.'

Freshly arrived at the hotel-and determined not to think about Special Agent Ben Turner, who went radio silent on her after one date-Lucy is stopped in her tracks when a strange man comes staggering toward her. She barely has time to notice his weak, sweaty appearance before he presses a classic Montblanc pen onto her hand, gasps, "Keep them safe," and collapses at her feet, dead. When Lucy shows the fountain pen to her grandfather, an avid collector and World War II veteran, she's in for another shock. Not only does Grandpa recognize the Montblanc, he also reveals a secret: he was an Allied spy during the war and the pen is both a message regarding one of his wartime missions and the key to reading a microdot left by the dead man. On the microdot is a series of ciphers, some decrypted to form names. Could they be the descendants of Grandpa's fellow spies? When two from the list end up murdered-including the chef at the Hotel Sutton-and Grandpa's life is put in jeopardy, Lucy's sure she's right. And with Lucy's and Pippa's names possibly on the list, too, she's got to uncover the past to protect those in the present. With a secret Allied mission, old grievances, and traitors hiding behind every corner, Lucy must use her research skills to trace the list's World War II ancestors and connect the dots to find a killer in their midst-a killer who's determined to make sure some lineages end once and for all.
