Finally, after many months of writer's block and other "roadblocks," the new Gus LeGarde Mystery is here. If you haven't read the other books in the series, don't worry, they all work great as standalones. ;o)
Here's what the new book is all about:
Some family secrets shouldn’t stay buried…
Music professor Gus LeGarde and his wife Camille are looking forward to a relaxing vacation at Paines Creek Beach on beautiful Cape Cod. But Gus barely has a chance to feel the sand between his toes before a near-miss car accident drags him right into the middle of a local family feud — and a centuries-old mystery that’s begging to be solved.
As Gus is drawn further into the conflict between the Cooks and the McNabbs — two families with a grudge going all the way back to Colonial times — he and Camille keep uncovering more questions than answers. Where is the long-lost Cook family treasure? What’s really wrong with Beckett, the McNabb-side member who’s the father of young Jane Cook’s son? And who’s telling the truth about Beckett and Jane’s clandestine relationship: Jane’s grandfather, surly patriarch Albert Cook; or Beckett’s slightly odd parents?
Before long, mounting tension gives way to true danger as people start vanishing. And in the middle of a fast-brewing hurricane, Gus discovers the real secret at the heart of the feud: someone who will stop at nothing to make sure their side wins. Including murder.
Packed with shocking twists, exciting action, and fascinating tales of family lore and pirate treasure, Murder on the Brewster Flats is the first LeGarde Mysteries crossover novel with award-winning author Aaron Paul Lazar’s popular Paines Creek Beach series. Don’t miss this installment!
And here's what they're saying:
"An exciting and polished novel which you can’t put down." Steph Dagg
"Lazar’s got another big winner! Readers won’t be able to put down this book until the last page. Even then, it’s hard to say goodbye to Gus and Camille." Jan Smith
"Treasure, pirates, a bi-family feud and underground passages; all the makings of a terrific mystery caught me from the get go and wouldn't let go. . Don't miss this!" KC Curtis
"Somehow Lazar manages to keep non-stop action going through the entire book! Is there such a thing as a cozy thriller? The other thing I loved about this book, in addition to the action, is that it's just plain FUN! Centuries-old houses on the storm lashed seacoast must have harbored pirates and their treasures, right? You won't be disappointed." Joan Young
"I love it so much it is a re-read. If you haven't read any of Aaron Lazar's books start with this one, you won't be sorry. It will grab you and you will want to read all his other books." Linda Frank
