An amateur sleuth named Bonnie and her kitty companion Clyde, with names like those, what could possibly go wrong?

Life hasn't sparkled too brightly for Bonnie Balfour over the past few years, but a heart-breaking divorce has brought her back to her small rural hometown of Bliss, Georgia, and things are starting to shape up.

The proud new owner of Bless Her Heart—a second chance dress shop and boutique on the town square—Bonnie thinks thirty-eight might not be too late for a fresh start in life after all.

Until a grouchy old widow turns up dead in a pile of donations meant for Bonnie’s shop, and the town’s new detective pins her to the top of his suspect list!

To save her shop, dream and reputation, Bonnie must coordinate clues and stitch together the truth about her innocence, but the unreasonably handsome detective and prying eyes of the local gossip mill are fast fraying her nerves.

When a series of anonymous attacks begin to hem her in, Bonnie fears the real killer is fixing to make her his next victim. Can this amateur sleuth measure up?


Cute and quirky with adorable characters! Julie Anne Lindsey is bringing a lot of heart and humor into her brand new cozy mystery Bonnie and Clyde Mysteries series. In BURDEN OF PROOF Bonnie is settling in back home in Bliss, Georgia when trouble comes knocking and throws her orderly world upside down.

A support cast of neighboring businesses and suspicious strangers heighten the suspense as danger lurks in plain site.

I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a mystery with a lighthearted whimsy take on whodunnit. I’m looking forward to more to come from Bonnie and Clyde.
