The visit of quirky world-famous horror author Nathan Grimes to Star City is especially thrilling for Clare Henry and her grandfather Chester. As the owners of The Rescued Word, a charming boutique shop in town, Clare and Chester specialize in restoring old typewriters and repairing beloved books. They’ve invited Nathan to their shop to use their equipment for his next book.
But all plans to work on the book take a step in the wrong direction when a tourist discovers an abandoned ski boot on the slopes–and the only sign of the owner is the dismembered foot he left inside! Nathan’s writer’s curiosity for all things horror is further piqued after the body of Clare’s high school friend Lloyd Gavin is discovered sans one foot. When all toes point to a class reunion gone wrong, Nathan can’t help but join Clare and her best friend, police officer Jodie Wentworth, as they hurry to track down the killer before more former classmates become Most Likely to Be Killed.
About the Author
My husband and I moved to Arizona in February of 2015 but before that we lived in Salt Lake City, Utah. I moved there for an advertising job right after college. I hadn’t planned on staying twenty-seven years, but I met Charlie, we got married, we had our son, and a really terrific life happened. I loved Utah, and those twenty-seven years were wonderful. Our son’s in college in Missouri now, and we’re enjoying our new and very desert adventure.
As a kid I moved around a lot. My dad was a football coach, mostly throughout the Midwest but we spent one year in Portales, New Mexico. A couple of things stood out and and stayed with me that year. 1 – We lived in a haunted house. 2 – The southwest rubbed off on me and I have loved it ever since.
I did get to start and finish high school in one place – Des Moines, Iowa, which is a wonderful city even if the humid climate always was a challenge. I ended up going to college there too, at Drake University where I studied journalism. I made some great friends those years. I’m glad to still be in touch with many of them.
I have only ever wanted to be a writer. I’ve had good jobs, bad jobs, great bosses, and terrible bosses. Through it all and ever since I was seven I have only wanted to write. I’m grateful to have the opportunity now.
Review of Comic Sans Murder
Review (4 Stars): What a great series! Clare and her family are involved in another murder mystery when a body part is found on the slopes and the victim is someone from Clare’s past. This mystery had so many twists and turns and I had absolutely no idea who was the killer or why until the very end. This is the third book in this mystery series and you will instantly love Clare and her little shop, The Rescued Word. Great installment in this delightful series and I can’t wait to see what kind of trouble Clare finds herself in next with the fourth installment of this series.
