Two murders unnerve small-town Pennsylvania in this cozy historical mystery
The 19th century is coming to a close, and Sheriff Tilghman is focused on his two biggest problems: Finding a new deputy and convincing his true love, Lydia, to marry him.
But his problems are about to get more complicated.
The town’s usual tranquility is shaken to the core.
A stranger has been killed.
Tilghman recognizes the victim. Having recently witnessed the victim’s strained encounter with a new guy in town (Valentine Deibert), the sheriff begins his interrogation with him. Deibert denies knowing the victim, but Tilghman is unconvinced. He lacks a connection, until the victim's widow arrives in Arahpot.
Then another body is found.
And it belongs to the prime suspect: Valentine Deibert.
Suddenly, Sheriff Tilghman is investigating two murders. As he works through an abundance of motivated suspects, he finds himself in danger. And why is Lydia pushing her obnoxious cousin as a candidate for deputy at a time like this?
