Mass Market Paperback: 368 pages
Digital ASIN: B07H1VFL64
Synopsis . . . If it wasn’t for art thieves, spies and killers, Alex Vlodnachek’s life would be bliss.
Her freelance career is catching fire.
Her relationship with B&B owner Ian Sterling is flirty and fun.
She’s even attending a glittering cocktail party at his sprawling
But, to this ex-reporter, something
seems “off.” And it’s not the canapés. When Ian’s father vanishes, the
enigmatic innkeeper asks for her discretion. And her assistance.
Meanwhile, Alex is having the opposite
problem at her tiny bungalow: People keep piling in uninvited. Including
a mysterious intruder found sleeping in her kitchen. Her grandmother,
Baba, who shows up “to help”—with Alex’s own mother hot on her heels.
When the intrepid redhead discovers a
body in the B&B’s basement and a “reproduction” Renoir in the
library, she begins to suspect that Ian is more than just a simple hotel
With editor pal Trip, brother Nick, and
rescue-pup Lucy riding shotgun, Alex scrambles to stay one step ahead of
disaster—and some very nasty characters.
Can she find the missing man before it’s too late? Or will Alex be the next one to disappear?
My review . . . In Seeing Red, the second book in the Red Herring mystery series, Alex has her hands full dealing with the strange events occurring at The Cotswolds Inn, the bed and breakfast run by her neighbor, Ian Sterling. Acts of sabotage threaten the viability of the inn, mysterious visitors appear and disappear, and as if that isn’t concerning enough, a corpse or two are found, and Ian’s father Harkins, the inn’s co-owner, goes missing. Alex is determined to get to the bottom of it all, and also identify and care for the baby she unexpectedly finds in her kitchen.
These unusual developments draw the Voldnachek clan back to Alex’s doorstep to provide assistance—whether she wants it or not. As the story unfolds, readers become fully immersed in the larger-than-life, amusing personalities and quirks of Alex’s mother, brother Nick, and grandmother Baba. Family friends and eccentric neighbors add additional flavor to the antics.
Will Alex unravel the puzzling activities at The Cotswolds Inn, find Ian's dad, juggle her new career and possible love interest, and keep her sanity and family intact? One thing is for sure, readers will have an enjoyable time finding out. Filled with high jinx and hilarity, this series is an entertaining escape into a fictional Virginia suburb.
