9780449149607: Permit for Murder (A Josie Pigeon Mystery #2)

DOUBLE TROUBLE

Josie Pigeon, proprietor of Island Contracting, is bothered to find she has a double--a gorgeous redheaded carpenter who's being mistaken for her all over the island. And when this mysterious look-alike turns up murdered on Josie's job site, Josie is highly indignant.

Can it possibly be--Ms. Pigeon's all-woman construction crew and her boyfriend Sam, fear--that the intended victim was Josie herself? She doesn't think she has any enemies. In waters more troubled than she suspects, Josie goes fishing for the truth--and makes a catch that she wishes she could throw back. . . .

"A nice writing style and considerable wit."

"Engaging."

From the Publisher:

Although I now live in New York City, there's a lot I can identify with in Valerie Wolzien's mysteries. Valerie's portraits of small towns and suburban communities remind me of my youth -- and I suspect they strike a similar chord with all those readers who live (or used to) far from urban centers. Also, Valerie's novels are like comfort food in a way -- because they are, in part, celebrations of holidays and happy social occasions (weddings, birthday parties, family vacation trips) . . . plus the mandatory addition of homicidal doings. Valerie is now writing two series with two different amateur sleuths -- suburban housewife Susan Henshaw (MURDER AT THE PTA LUNCHEON is her first appearance) and businesswoman Josie Pigeon (who started solving murders in SHORE TO DIE). I heartily recommend anything Valerie Wolzien writes.

--Joe Blades, Associate Publisher
