Now it is up to Nikki Bryant and her friends to uncover the secret that Jodi Gibbons has been protecting—a secret someone believes is worth killing to keep from being revealed.

When the Burgtheater’s impresario unexpectedly meets his maker, Joseph Haydn is relieved to learn no one expects him to look into the matter. The impresario was murdered—and the Salzburger believed to be the killer is already behind bars.
But the impresario’s untimely death is not without consequences. Haydn’s employer insists he take over the dead man’s duties. Handling the tedious technical details of putting on an opera is bad enough. Confronting the suspicious behavior backstage is even worse.
Now, egged on by Michael—a close friend of the Mozarts—Haydn must prove Leopold innocent. Or risk his brother’s ire forever!
Praise for the Joseph Haydn Mysteries:
“Tustin orchestrates a concerto of intrigue and deception . . .” – Anna Lee Huber, Lady Darby Mysteries
“A standout in the genre of historical mysteries . . .” – Midwest Book Reviews
A former journalist, Nupur Tustin misuses a Ph.D. in Communication and an M.A. in English to orchestrate mayhem in Joseph Haydn’s Austria and to paint intrigue in her Celine Skye Psychic Mysteries about a psychic who takes on the outrageous and still unsolved Gardner Museum theft! In addition to being a storyteller and avid mystery fan, Nupur is a wife and homeschooling Mom who’s recently become a Christian.Author Links

About Inheriting Murder
Take a visit to Bobwhite Mountain and find out what all of the fuss is about.
Jamie Rutland Gillespie was born and raised in a tiny, country town in South Carolina. At the age of 18, she moved to a slightly larger town in the same state and still lives there. She spent much of her youth visiting the beaches of the low country and taking trips to the mountains of North Carolina and Tennessee. The mountains were always her "happy place" and she still visits every chance she gets.
Jamie has always loved to read; she got her library card at the small library of her hometown at the young age of 6. She has a vivid imagination and has always made-up stories of places, people and situations that only exist in her head.
She currently lives in South Carolina with her husband, daughter and 17-year-old Yorkie Pom, who is her baby and shadow. She loves college football and has been a South Carolina Gamecock fan since birth. She also loves MLB and has been a Braves fan since she was a little girl, watching the games and going to games with her Dad. She is still an avid reader and enjoys writing, crossword puzzles, baking, and spending time with her family.Author Links Facebook - Instagram - Amazon - Twitter - BookBub -

Erika Powell has lived in hiding for years to protect her son from his wealthy, tyrannical grandfather. Wary of strangers, she’s suspicious of James West, who’s renting a neighboring cabin, despite their sizzling chemistry. But when attempts are made on Erika’s life, James fears he may have endangered her—because the undercover PI’s investigation of Erika may have led someone dangerous right to her.
Has it caught up with her?
From Harlequin Intrigue: Seek thrills. Solve crimes. Justice served.
James West's job is to verify that Erika is the "lost" daughter-in-law to a wealthy man, now deceased. Only she's "lost" by choice, to protect her son from becoming like his father, and his father before him. She's raising him with good manners and kindness toward others. Although it's been years since she ran away, given the wealth and need for control, she's sure the family will find her in this small town. She's wary of James West, yet attracted to him. His conflict is his job, and loyalty to his brothers, and his attraction to her.
K.D. Richards is a new author to me, and I'm impressed with her writing style and plot. Her main character, Erika is both wary and strong, ready to run if need be, to protect her son. James is a veteran trying to figure out what to do with his life now that he's left the military, helping his brothers at West Investigations as he considers options. As tension rises, the townspeople show support. Although the 4th in the series, this can easily be read as a stand alone mystery. I look forward to reading the earlier books in this series.FTC Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book in the hopes that I would post an honest review. This has not affected the content of my review in any way.
