All books tell stories, but some people are able to read more than just the words on the pages. As young Pippin Hawthorne will soon learn, her family has been both gifted and cursed to be bibliomancers, ancient practicers who foretell the future and truths through messages hidden within book passages. Pippin knows nothing of this when she and her twin brother return to Devil’s Cove, though, as they have only come to the island off of North Carolina’s Outer Banks to settle their inheritance of their late grandmother’s falling down beach house.

Finnegan, a five-year-old Scottie, was living in an unstable home, which was not safe for this sweet Scottie. He spent time in a kennel with his housemate, a Cocker Spaniel, that was pulled from the kennel by Cocker Spaniel Rescue. Finnegan was then placed with a friend of the owner. The placement didn’t work out, so Finnegan went to Scottish Terrier Rescue of New York/New Jersey.

One of the things we enjoy most about writing our Sophie Kimball Mysteries, is creating quirky characters whose antics shine. We introduced reluctant sleuth Sophie (Phee) Kimball and her demanding mother Harriet, along with Harriet’s dog, Streetman, and a cadre of book club ladies and pinochle players. Then we added Phee’s seventy-four-year-old Aunt Ina to the mix, a free-spirit who never left the sixties.
