Summary

A new cozy mystery by award-winning author C.C. Harrison! 
Viva Winter puts her sleuthing skills to the test in Death By G-String: A Coyote Canyon Ukulele Club Mystery. Can she find the truth before it’s too late? 
  
The Coyote Canyon Ladies Ukulele Club is gearing up for a ukulele competition when their flamboyant star player, Kiki Jacquenette, is found strangled to death with a G-string. Not only is a first place win in jeopardy, the entire folk music festival is put on the verge of collapse. A murderer on the loose is sure to keep tourists away. 
Chronicle editor Viva Winter had hoped to make Coyote Canyon the folk music capitol of the Colorado mountains, and was also trying to raise money to help repay the townspeople bilked by her father’s phony investment scheme. With much to gain by Kiki’s death, Viva soon comes under suspicion, so she must uncover the truth before her whole life turns into one sour note, and a tourist trade boom falls flat.

    From country club to trailer park …  
     
      Swindled out of a fair divorce settlement, former socialite Bliss Moonbeam Cornwall works a number of part-time jobs to pay the rent on a rundown trailer and keep her motorcycle on the road. House cleaner, yoga teacher, library assistant, cemetery groundskeeper, drudge for her agoraphobic cousin – the work never ends. But Bliss still can’t save enough money for another day in court. So, when her cousin offers her a generous fee to find a pollinating mate for his giant jungle plant, she agrees to help. How hard can it be?  
     
      That’s when she discovers that her neighbours, employers, and even her cousin are involved in a string of illegal activities – including grow-ops and suspicious deaths. Police Chief Neil Redfern’s persistent scrutiny is interfering with her goal, and Bliss suspects he himself may be up to his badge in the crimes he’s "investigating." With no one to back her up, Bliss must make a decision: she can give up on her dream, or she can start fighting dirty. Either way, she risks becoming another murder victim.

    Stephen T. Morrison was an ordinary father who wore sensible shoes every day to a job he couldn’t stand. It was no different than his marriage – something he did because it was “the right thing to do.” Day in and day out, things were the same. The only highlight to his day was messages from the meaningless fling he called Baby Girl; a woman he’d finally broken vows for just to feel alive. It—and she—didn’t matter, really. His wife, Kathy, had checked out of the marriage years ago and Stephen was just biding his time. All he could do was try to get his boy-crazy daughter Lizzie to stay on track, graduate high school and avoid the fashion career his wife insisted upon. It was only a few more years, he reasoned. Then, he’d finally be free. 
    Until one day. 
    The day Stephen receives a phone call from the state police is the day that everything changes. With nothing left to lose and Lizzie forever gone, Stephen decides to finally take matters into his own hands and force justice upon those who he believes are responsible for his beloved daughter’s death. Stephen is, after all, a very patient man. For twenty-four years, he’s learned to keep his mouth shut and nod his head. 
    Not anymore. 
     Still—a coy man—revenge won’t be swift or even humane with Stephen in the driver’s seat. Instead, like the injustices done to his daughter, karma will be well contrived, humiliating and precise. Stephen is now determined to become anything but the ordinary man wearing sensible shoes and the one Baby Girl calls a “square.” With nothing left to lose, he’s determined to set karma free in the name of his daughter. It’ll start with the ones who call themselves “princesses.” 
    Soon, they will learn: 
    You never mess with Daddy’s Girl.

    He was egotistical, verbose and hot-headed to a fault. But he did not deserve to die... His name was Will Fowler, an actor in the esteemed theatrical company called Lord Westfield's Men, a vibrant young man flushed from the success of a recent performance at The Queen's Head theatre. So exuberant was he that he persuaded the resourceful manager of the company, Nicholas Bracewell, to quaff a pint or two at a nearby pub. Alas, it was to be Will's last taste of beer. A tavern brawl left him dead - but not before he gasped for Nicholas to find his fast-fleeting, red-bearded murderer and administer a just revenge. Yet finding Will's murderer in London's dark, crowded streets was a seemingly impossible task - not to mention the fact that Lord Westfield's Men were just commanded to appear at the court of Elizabeth I - an honour one dare not refuse . . .

    Breaking the rules can be deadly. Following them can be worse. 
    The Ten Golden Rules: They are simple. 
    Do not mistake humble for weak, nor meek for frail. 
    Don’t confuse empathy with stupidity, or honesty with foolhardiness. 
    At no time underestimate the power of gratitude. 
    Always be appreciative and sincere. 
    Forever hold true the virtues of integrity and patience. 
    Never assume. 
    *** 
    The Ten Rules of Karma: They are certain. 
    Expectations based on pretenses often come with a price tag too high for even the loftiest of egos. Arrogance is certain to find its way back to powerlessness. 
    Those who put themselves first always die unaided, afraid, and eventually overlooked. 
    Honor comes not with manipulation or forced servitude. 
    What you give is what you receive tenfold. 
    Truth is in action and intention alone. 
    *** 
    The Word: 
    The meek shall inherit the earth.  
    Or so they said…
