Discreet in the Heat

14 March 2019

What is a home?  It’s a question Bess Bullock ponders when she and her husband are temporarily moved from their home on Dogwood Lane and into the main building of the Honey Hills Retirement Center.  She adjusts to her new surroundings the only way she knows how, by finding little mysteries to solve.  A pickleball player whose personality seems to change with his sleeping habits. A wayward diary with passages so disturbing it has Bess questioning the nature of her fellow residents.  Yet, her most challenging case centers on missing diamonds and the many suspects that she must consider in finding a culprit.

With a summer heat wave lingering, will too many mysteries prove difficult for Bess? Rest assured she will do her best not to sweat over her investigations.  She’ll do her best to remain Discreet in the Heat.
