About this title

Synopsis:

A journalist comes to Wheeler, Texas, intent on revealing the town?s secrets. Instead she finds a stubborn advocate of the town in Kate Chambers, and the tangled story leads to murder, kidnapping and a high-speed chase. When free-lance journalist Sara Jo Cavanaugh comes to Wheeler to do an in-depth study of Kate?s town for a feature on small-town America, Kate senses she will be trouble. Sara Jo stays at her sister Donna?s B&B, The Tremont House, and unwittingly drives a further wedge into Donna?s marriage to Wheeler?s mayor Tom Bryson. And soon she?s spending way too much time interviewing high school students, one young athlete in particular. Police chief Rick Samuels ignores Kate?s instinct, but lawyer David Clinkscales, her former boss from Dallas, takes it more seriously. Sara Jo arouses animosity in Wheeler with the personal, intrusive questions she asks, and when she is found murdered, the list of suspects is long. But Kate heads the list, and she must clear her name, with the help of David and Rick. A second murder confirms that someone is desperate, and now Rick is convinced Kate is in danger. There?s a love triangle, a cooking school, a kidnapping, a broken marriage, and a lot of adventure before the threads of this mystery are untangled and Wheeler can go back to being a peaceful small town. If it ever does.

About the Author:

Murder at the Tremont House is the second Blue Plate Mystery from award-winning novelist Judy Alter, following the successful Murder at the Blue Plate Café. Judy is also the author of four books in the Kelly O?Connell Mysteries series: Skeleton in a Dead Space, No Neighborhood for Old Women, Trouble in a Big Box, and Danger Comes Home. With the Blue Plate Murder series, she moves from inner city Fort Worth to small-town East Texas to create a new set of characters in a setting modeled after a restaurant that was for years one of her family?s favorites. Before turning her attention to mystery, Judy wrote fiction and nonfiction, mostly about women of the American West, for adults and young-adult readers. Her work has been recognized with awards from the Western Writers of America, the Texas Institute of Letters, and the National Cowboy Museum and Hall of Fame. She has been honored with the Owen Wister Award for Lifetime Achievement by WWA and inducted into the Texas Literary Hall of Fame at the Fort Worth Public Library.
