Dead Cereus

When the rare night-blooming cereus plant is scheduled to open its petals at Shellesby College’s Night Lights Gala, Holly Jackson is there—and so is a killer. Events unfold that not only place her scholarship on the line, but also her life…and that of her rival.
Holly finds herself racing the clock to save her arch-nemesis, secure her scholarship, and catch a murderer…if she can! This is the ultimate escape book with an epic romance and a fantastic, unique mystery rolled into one hilarious story. In fact, it just might be the funniest book you’ve read all year!
Here is what The Prairies Book Review had to say about Dead Cereus:
“Seamon is a master at creating atmospheric settings, and cozy mystery lovers will find it easy to fall under her spell. An appealing, witty heroine, a gem of a leading man, and well-constructed setting and plot make this one a must-read for both mystery lovers and fans of chick-lit literature. Readers will look forward to more of Holly and William’s adventures.”
