Summary

Summary

Krentz, 12-time bestselling author, leads this special collection with her novel about an innkeeper who's read too many detective novels and a burned-out private eye who thinks a case at Maggie's B&B is going to be a cinch. In Foster's new novel, Beguilded, an errant son returns to his family to find the murderer of his twin brother. In the process, he tries to keep from falling in love with his brother's old flame.
