Leave No Stone Unturned
May 13, 2013
Leave No Stone Unturned is the first book in the Lexie Starr Mystery Series. The author resides in Bonner Springs, Kansas and begins the story in her home state. It isn’t long, however, before Alexandria Marie Starr (known as Lexie) travels to New York to learn more about her newly acquired son-in-law, Clay. It seems he is hiding a past that could potentially be fatal to her only daughter.
Lexie, a volunteer librarian turned amateur sleuth, meets a number of off-the-wall characters in her search for the truth. Harriet is a spunky, chain-smoking, old lady and owner of the B&B where Lexie takes a room. The rest of the cast consists of Wanda, her son-in-law’s mentally-deranged mother, her cohort and prospective new boyfriend, Stone Van Patten, and Jake, Clay’s former roommate with a few secrets of his own.
In their attempts to obtain information and get at the truth, Lexie and Stone find themselves impersonating everyone, from homicide detectives to exterminators. This fast-paced cozy mystery is a must read for anyone who enjoys colorful characters, intrigue, lighthearted humor, and a surprise ending that you will not see coming.
