Author Discussion & Signing with Patricia Skalka
Centuries & Sleuths Bookstore, Friday, May 29 at 7pm
Patricia Skalka returns to Centuries & Sleuths with her second Dave Cubiak Door County Mystery, Death at Gills Rock.

Dave Cubiak is back, and this time he’s the new sheriff in town After tracking a clever killer in Death Stalks Door County, park ranger and former Chicago homicide detective Dave Cubiak is elected Door County sheriff. His newest challenge arrives as spring brings not new life but tragic death to the isolated fishing village of Gills Rock. Three prominent World War II veterans who are about to be honored for their military heroics die from carbon monoxide poisoning during a weekly card game. Blame falls to a faulty heater but Cubiak puzzles over details. When one of the widows receives a message claiming the men “got what they deserved,” he realizes that there may be more to the deaths than a simple accident.

Investigating, Cubiak discovers that the men’s veneer of success and respectability hides a trail of lies and betrayal that stems from a single, desperate act of treachery and eventually spreads a web of deceit across the peninsula. In a dark, moody tale that spans more than half a century, Cubiak encounters a host of suspects with motives for murder. Amid broken dreams, corruption, and loss, he sorts out the truth. Death at Gills Rock is the second book in Patricia Skalka’s Dave Cubiak Door County Mystery series.

Author Discussion & Signing with Annie Hansen
Centuries & Sleuths Bookstore, Saturday, May 30 at 1pm
Annie Hansen returns to Centuries & Sleuths with her second Kelly Clark Mystery Bean in Love.

Kelly Clark is making quite a comeback in her hometown of Geneva, IL after her divorce. She’s in love, her relationships are solid, and her finances are back on track due to her sister’s generous offer to live rent free in the apartment above Chocolate Love, a favorite hang-out in the Historic District. When Kelly’s sister, Nikki, decides to expand her Chocolate Love empire by opening a new coffee shop, Bean in Love, the Clark family pulls together to help.

As the local fall festivals kick into high gear, trouble comes blowing into town with rumors of a local ghost causing real trouble in town. When a beloved local dies at the Geneva History Center under suspicious circumstances, Kelly and Nikki are called on to figure out what happened. Could a ghost from the past really have a hand in the death? Things get complicated when the sisters face an unexpected pregnancy, a surprise proposal, and a possible foreclosure. All of the stress makes Kelly question if she is really moving on with her life or if she’s just fooling herself. After all, Kelly’s been in love and it ended horribly. Could it really be better for her this time around?
