This small Pennsylvania town once again becomes a hotbed of secrets.

Only Angel Warren, a retired Navy Pilot and owner of Shop ‘Round the World, can turn a summer day at the river into a murder investigation. But when her brother Bryce’s unicorn float snags on a corpse’s hand, suddenly Angel and Bryce are suspects. It doesn’t help that Angel knows the victim and was one of the last people to see Hank Price alive, or that Angel witnessed a disturbing argument between Hank and his wife. Plus, she and Bryce may have heard the shot that killed Hank.

Once more, Angel inserts herself into the middle of the investigation, this time with her best friend Detective Trinity Colson’s tacit approval. Who could have wanted Hank dead? Angel soon discovers Hank had a secret life that included sketchy business dealings and a gambling addiction.

The question isn’t how Angel will juggle her sleuthing alongside managing her gift store during the height of tourist season, family drama, and a burgeoning romance. It’s how will Angel solve the crime without stumbling into the killer’s sights?


Small town fun and hijinks ensue with the second book in Geri Krotow’s Shop ‘Round the World cozy mystery series! Fans will recognize the lead character Angel and her feathered sidekick Ralph as the story picks up slightly after the holiday drama from book one. Book two was slightly slower to snag my attention, but once we got into the heart of the whodunnit part of the book I was immersed into figuring out who the culprit was. I loved boyfriend Nate and best friend Trinity’s continuation in the series. I’m looking forward to seeing what else Angel will get herself into in the coming book(s).
