River Sutton Mysteries, Book 2

Only one thing could drag Robin Pearce back to her small town roots for the high school’s 100th homecoming celebration: seeing her sister in her old cheering uniform with a huge smile on her face at the halftime show. Reconnecting with family gives her all the feels.

Ogling Sheriff Chris Payne’s broad shoulders in his old quarterback jersey isn’t be a chore, either. So, make that two things.

But when Robin bumps into high school classmates at the football game, her homecoming turns into a nightmare. She literally stumbles over the dead body of her frenemy, River Sutton’s top trophy wife.

The whole town suspects Robin, and even Chris wants to lock her up for her safety. When she’s admiring fall décor with her sister, Robin uses her cyber skills to uncover the River Sutton’s killer before they can end her time as an amateur sleuth. Permanently.

Is it the desperate soon-to-be-ex-husband? Or the greedy land developer? Or someone else hidden in the shadows?

Follow the clues with this role model for smart young women in a murder mystery set at Halloween, everyone’s favorite fall holiday!


This is the second book in Basile's River Sutton Country Cozy Mysteries series, but it works fine as a stand-alone and is a quick and easy read that will get you in the mood for all the fall fun.

I have been looking forward to this book since finishing the first in the series and it did not disappoint. I was immediately pulled back into the character's lives in River Sutton and into the new mystery unfolding. I can't wait to read more!
