How could anyone be spurred to murder?
Spurred to Murder is a heartwarming cozy mystery about a family of detectives who uncover the truth about a murder in a small North Carolina vacation town.
Velma is adjusting to life without her dear departed husband. She runs a successful beauty salon, is active in her church, and occasionally asks too many questions. She’s accompanied by her reluctant sidekick–a pug named Henry.
Her son Bernie is a retired police detective who now runs his father’s bait and tackle store. As much as he tries to stay out of his past, he keeps being pulled back in.
Sandy, Velma’s niece, is a newly appointed Sheriff’s Deputy who is trying to make her mark in the department while fighting some very old-fashioned norms in her new role.
In book one, we follow the discovery of a local girl, Abigail Childress, a much-liked pillar of the community who is found dead at the surf’s edge. What first appears to be a suicide, soon leads the investigators to a different conclusion. Murder.
Could the killer be a relative of the victim, a resident of the sunny vacation destination, or an out of towner?
The Hurley Beach Mystery Series is an entertaining cozy mystery series with quirky characters throughout.
