Groundbreaking Murder: A Darling Valley Cozy Mystery with Female Sleuths Olivia M. Granville and Tuesday

The women sleuths Olivia M. Granville (OMG) and her best friend Tuesday are back with the second Darling Valley Cozy Mystery.

Olivia had worked for months on the groundbreaking ceremony for Charles Bacon’s Bacon-Paatz Classic Car and Fine Art Museum. She had obsessed over every detail to make sure the day went off without a hitch. The success of the museum could put her at the center of the international design scene. Imagine her surprise when she saw what the Governor dug up!

The groundbreaking ceremony sends Olivia on a collision course with Native Americans, First Americans, snooty bloggers who write that Bacon-Paatz sounds like a pork store in Boston, and connivers of all stripes out to use the museum for their own nefarious ends.

As a result, Olivia embarks upon a mission to save a modern day Taj Mahal, the New Jersey traffic dispatcher cum lottery winning billionaire’s tribute to his late, beloved wife. Olivia and Charles have become close friends since the George Clooney lookalike appeared on her doorstep in Armoires and Arsenic. Olivia is determined to do everything possible to rescue his embattled museum from a possible shutdown, not realizing the life and death commitment that this will entail.

Events throw Olivia and Detective Dreamy, Gurmeet (Matt) Richards, together again after declaring a timeout in their on again, off again love affair.

And as if the endangered project is not headache enough, a competing designer, Hamish Walsh, tries to sabotage Olivia’s other big project, a pool house for the Darling Valley Diva, Marguerite Fredericks.

Throughout, Olivia continues her quest to match up the love struck, lovable Carrie with her oblivious right hand life saver, Cody.

Alistair Walsh, a pesky gofer for the museum’s art curator, a narcissistic, philandering architect, a take no prisoners banker, a perfectly coiffed troublesome tenant, and the irrepressible, impossibly, eccentrically dressed best friend Tuesday populate this humorous, yet suspenseful story of murder, mayhem, good food and classy cars.
