Everything is coming up rosé for innkeeper Jess Byrne until a murder on opening weekend gives her B&B’s killer vibe a whole new meaning.

Schitt’s Creek meets Only Murders in the Building in this sparkling debut mystery.

It’s the grand opening of The Pearl B&B in Hudson Valley, and owner Jess Byrne has prepared the ultimate, Insta-worthy welcome, complete with her ex-boyfriend—reality singing sensation Lars Armstrong—performing live. As guests check in and mimosas are poured, Lars arrives with his stepdad-turned-manager Bob in tow. But things go south when Bob is found dead, and Lars is the prime suspect.

After a desperate plea from Lars, and knowing the reputation of her B&B is at stake, Jess agrees to help clear Lars’ name, but the more she digs, the less sure she is that he’s innocent. Especially when he’s found at the scene of another murder.

With the guests under lockdown, the B&B in the press for all the wrong reasons, and a killer on the loose, Jess is in over her head. With the help of her best friend and business partner Kat, Jess is determined to uncover the truth before Lars is put behind bars and The Pearl is permanently cancelled.

Q&A With the Author:

What was your inspiration for writing this book?

I was inspired after watching a Netflix documentary series called Motel Makeover. It featured best friends who purchased a run down fishing lodge and turned it into a modern motel whose target market is social media savvy millennials. 

What did you enjoy most about writing this book?

I enjoyed spending time with the characters. They’ve become like friends who exist in my head. Writing the book brought me to my happy place.

Do you have any other books you are working on that you can tell us about?

I’m writing the next book in the Hudson Valley B & B Mystery Series. It’s about a bachelorette party that ends in murder.

Can you tell us about what you have planned for the future?

Writing is my passion. I’ll be coming out with another series with Level Best Books this summer and the two series will be taking up my time for the foreseeable future. I also love to connect with readers and writers, so I’ll be going to more conferences in 2024 and 2025. If anyone lives in the Seattle area, I’ll be at Left Coast Crime in late April. It’s a fabulous conference with lots of great events. 

Anything more you would like to say to your readers and fans?

I’d like to say a massive thank you for your support and encouragement. I couldn’t write my books if no one who wanted to read them. Being able to write full-time is a dream-come-true and I am so grateful.
