Murder at First Pitch by Nicole Asselin

My life is not normal.
I know that.
I mean, I work for a family owned baseball team.  How many people can say that?
I’m Madeline Boucher, and my family owns the Abington Armadillos.  Yes, there is a story behind the name. No, I won’t tell it here (you’ll have to read my story to find out).  My Grandfather bought the team before I was born, and the Boucher family has owned it ever since.  The Abington team has become a staple for family entertainment on the South Shore of Massachusetts. 
I may not have taken the most direct route to working here, I spent several years in a corporate job in Boston before tucking my tail between my legs and coming back. It has been amazing in ways I couldn’t have imagined. 
Mostly that’s good.
Except for the murder. That was unexpected.  Even more unexpected my was my brother being a suspect in the murder. He wouldn’t hurt a fly!  I couldn’t let that happen.  So with the help of Davis *sigh*, I took matters into my own hands.
Not my greatest idea, but hey, it worked.
Now hopefully we can get back to running this ball team as a family.  With only a few more months left of season, I hope we can focus on wins and homeruns.  Not bodies and police.

32-year-old Madeline Boucher’s Grandfather instilled a love in the Boston Red Sox into her from an early age and increased that love by purchasing a local Independent League Baseball team, the Abington Armadillos.
After losing her corporate job in Boston, Madeline realizes her best option is to join the family baseball business. As the new “Social Media Director” for the team, Madeline attends her first business function and witnesses an argument between her brother Ben, and a strange man.
A few days later when walking the ballpark during her early morning hours, she finds the body of a man beaten to death with a baseball bat in the Visitor’s Dugout. It was the man her brother was arguing with at the party. Madeline is concerned that her brother would be considered a suspect. Through the local Detectives and Davis – the head of security for the ballpark she learns the victim is Christopher Dailey, a local baseball scout and prior felon.
When her brother is arrested and taken to the police station, she realizes she needs to figure out who the real culprit is, so her brother doesn’t take the fall for something she knows he didn’t do.
