Publisher's Summary

Opening an old-fashioned five-and-dime shop in her small Missouri hometown has been a great change for Devereaux “Dev” Sinclair. But when she hosts a reading group there, she learns that bad writing can mean life or death. To keep her new business in the black, Dev opens up her shop to local clubs. But in the first meeting of the Stepping Out Book Club, the speaker storms out after members attack his poetry’s sexism and scorn for small towns. Later that night, the poet’s body is found outside Dev’s store. Dev can’t afford for the murder to close her down, so she does a little stepping out of her own to investigate, with help from her two sexy suitors, Dr. Noah Underwood and Deputy U.S. Marshal Jake Del Vecchio. But when the killer threatens Dev, they will have to use every trick in the book to solve the case before she becomes the final chapter in this murder mystery....

My first visit to Dev's Dime Store. Loved it.

This is my first visit to Dev's Dime Store, but not my last.

I found this is a fun and funny mystery, and has had me laughing. With a good set of characters, in a well plotted and written mystery, that will keep you listening right until the end.

The narrator Maia Guest, makes this audiobook an enjoyable and smooth listen.

I voluntarily giving an honest review on a audio copy of this book for the author.

Available in paperback and audio download in both the UK and the USA.

I want to smack her, but can't help liking her

I am not entirely in sympathy with Dev; she is one who likes to have her cake and eat it too, but some how she gets away with it. I suppose I wouldn't have the ...tenacity? ...guts? ...stupidity? ...whatever...that justifies the amateur private/personal investigation that I like reading about, so how can I fully enter her motivation? Neither is it absolutely realistic, but if you want realism, read true crime. Anyway, I enjoy her antics and her relationships and would like to have a milkshake at her store. I've listened to all three stories so far and look forward to the next.
