Books That Make You Curl Up With a Fun, Fast-Paced Mystery
Nothing beats a book that makes you want to pour a cup of something warm and cozy up by a rainy window while the fireplace crackles. And that’s what author Donalee Moulton delivers in her mystery novel, Hung Out to Die.
The story follows Riel, raised in Santa Barbara, California but transplanted to Nova Scotia, where he is CEO of the Canadian Cannabis Corporation. It’s business as usual— until Riel finds his world hanging by a thread. Actually, several threads. A killer is at work, and it doesn’t take the police long to determine all is not as it appears … and that includes Riel himself, now pulled into a world not of his making.
