Darby Piper is in shock. Samantha Porter—her mentor and business partner at Two Girls Detective Agency—has died in a car crash, and it doesn’t look like an accident. In fact, evidence is pointing toward Darby.

Darby had expected to inherit Samantha’s half of the agency, but Samantha had recently changed the will to leave it to Tate Porter, her nephew, who returns to town.

Tate is no P.I. He’s a veteran, a world traveler, and something of a mystery himself. But as he helps Darby delve into secret histories and real estate development plans, he does seem to have a knack for the job. Can Darby prove her innocence? And will the agency have a future?
Featured Recipe
In Dead-End Detective, both Darby and Tate want answers about the murder of someone they both loved…but Darby isn’t so sure about Tate and his true motives. Darby’s mother, on the other hand, isn’t a bit suspicious of Tate; she invites him over for a delicious dinner, concluding with a homemade berry trifle, and Darby’s whole family gives Tate a warm welcome. Our berry trifle is as impressive-looking as it is delicious, and it’ll make any guest feel special.
