Bestselling author Connie Shelton has written more than two dozen mystery and crime stories, starting with female sleuth Charlie Parker and continuing in her new mystery series with Samantha Sweet. She has taught writing--both fiction and nonfiction--and is the creator of the Novel In A Weekend writing course. She and her husband live in northern New Mexico with their two dogs.From Library Journal:
Recently married, Charlie (Memories Can Be Murder) sees her firefighting husband off to a New Mexico site, then checks the private investigations office where she and her brother work as partners. An unpleasant woman practically forces an unusual case on her: to find her elderly and senile prospecting father-before the family's impending reunion. With very little searching, Charlie finds bizarre characters, a yellowing treasure map, a deserted mine, and a corpse (but is it of the right person?). Fans of Southwestern mysteries will find that Shelton's engaging story, likable heroine, and comfortable prose make this a good choice.
