Twisted Vines is a novel of suspense. The climax surprises Cait and the police —just as it will the reader!
Crime Analyst Caitlyn Tilson Pepper inherits a vineyard and two Shakespearean theaters in a northern California town from a mysterious aunt and becomes a target for murder. Cait’s investigation into the life and death of her Aunt Tasha forces her down a road paved with familial lies‚ devastating secrets῀ and multiple murders.
Marcus Singer‚ a convicted felon and Tasha&squo;s secretary‚ and Rachel Cross‚ a neighbor and Shakespearean actress‚ resent Cait’s inheritance‚ but with the help of Royal Tanner‚ a Navy SEAL‚ Cait is able to uncover the lies beneath the murders. After two arson attempts at the Elizabethan Theater‚ a blast of birdshot intended for Cait‚ and the suspicious nature of Tasha’s autopsy‚ Cait decides to stay in California — even if she must sacrifice her job in Ohio.
But an unexpected twist forces Cait to make some difficult decisions.
