I probably shouldn't bring this up, but even someone like me, who owns small shops in a small town, can be affected by worldwide issues going on.
Yes, I'm referring to the virus pandemic that's happening right now. Lots of people are affected. So are many shop owners like me, since people don't necessarily want to leave their homes even to pick up the wonderful treats I bake for them at my Icing on the Cake shop, or for their dogs at Barkery and Biscuits.
And unfortunately, this might be a good time for a murder to occur, since the killer might even be able to hide it as resulting from that horrible disease.
So--me? I'm making sure my shops stay extremely clean, and the shared kitchen, too. I'm taking good care of my wonderful dog Biscuit. And although I haven't solved a mystery in a while, I'm staying alert.
In case you're curious about what I've solved before, the stories have been memorialized in print and e-books and even some audio books. My most recent adventure was described in FOR A GOOD PAWS, which partly involved the murder of the
mayor long before I moved here... and what happened more recently that seemed
related. No viruses in it, though. Fortunately.
