The small town of Harmony’s Peak is finally returning to some semblance of normalcy after having just unwillingly hosted three murders in 24 hours. Now, Poppy (Marabelle) Prentiss, the town’s pastry perfectionist, has just found out that she has unwittingly hosted the town’s fourth murder suspect by allowing them to stay in her bakery overnight. Worse yet, the suspect is none other than her childhood love, who claims to be in town for employer-related training.

Poppy must now decide just how far she’s willing to go to help her old flame clear his name of being charged with the murder of his ex-wife; but is he really innocent? Adding to all the chaos, what about that attempted murder in the Peak? And if there wasn’t enough suspense and drama, who’s in the mood for…love?

Happy Women’s Day *


Take time on International Women’s Day to think about the extraordinary women in our everyday lives.

Helping children of all ages and all genders find inspiration and courage from diverse women role models is key to education. And teaching children and young adolescents to actively question and openly challenge stereotypes and bias is important because it helps forge a more inclusive world. It is for this reason that International Women’s Day in collaboration with Penguin Schools is providing practical and insightful classroom resources for teachers around the world. The education of children about gender equality issues is an important means by which we can all #PressforProgress.
