Reports of a sea monster lurking in the waters of a New England lake lure journalists Amanda Vickers and Marcie Ducasse to West Windham, Maine—and into a story involving murder. A wealthy widower holds a séance hoping to identify the killer of his beautiful and much younger bride. During the eerie event, the medium reveals that a clue is hidden in the wife's coffin.

Soon afterward, the dead woman's mausoleum is broken into, and Amanda and Marcie become curious about the victim, whose many affairs threatened to create scandal.

A Beanie and Cruiser Mystery (3rd in series)

For her birthday bash, Elsie "Beanie" MacBean gets a scenic Lake Tahoe dinner cruise on the Dixie Queen with her daughter and friends. But the evening is disrupted by an arguing couple—a twenty-three-year-old trophy wife and her much older husband. When the wife falls overboard, Beanie's onto a mystery … and possibly, a murder.

No body is recovered, but the woman is presumed dead, and Beanie's reporter instincts jump into overdrive. Working on a story surrounding the search for Lake Tahoe's own "Tessie" sea monster with a famous paleontologist, Beanie and her loyal basset hound, Cruiser, get to spend time on the water. And she discovers a few shocking insights into the drama aboard the Dixie Queen. But her curiosity draws unwanted attention, and now someone very dangerous plans to make sure Beanie takes her story to a watery grave.

Working undercover in a small Indiana bank, apprentice private investigator Cybil Quindt is looking for an embezzler. But when a vivacious young teller dies under mysterious circumstances, Cybil suspects she may be hunting for a killer. The woman's death appears to be a suicide, but the facts don't add up. And when Cybil does a little snooping around the victim's apartment, she's knocked unconscious and tossed into the cold depths of a lake.

Was the teller connected to the missing bank money? Or might the woman's death have something to do with her mystery lover—a very married man? The deeper Cybil digs into the case, the more convoluted it becomes: a tangle of blackmail, secrets and desperation. But when another teller is strangled, Cybil feels her luck running out, and races to expose a murderer before she's forced to cash out … for good.

As the students in her fourth-period class at school turn from unruly to downright dangerous, Linnet isn't sure if she's going crazy or being stalked.
