Miranda Warning (A Murder in the Mountains Novel) (Volume 1)

By Heather Day Gilbert


Child of the Appalachian mountains, Tess Spencer has experienced more than her share of heartache. The Glock-wielding, knife-carrying housewife knows how to survive whatever life throws at her. But when an anonymous warning note shows up in her best friend Miranda’s mailbox—a note written in a dead woman’s handwriting—Tess quickly discovers that ghosts are alive and well in Buckneck, West Virginia. Hot on a cold trail, she must use limited clues and her keen insight into human nature to unmask the killer...or the next victim might be Tess herself. Tinged with the supernatural and overshadowed by the mountains' lush, protective presence, this twisting psychological mystery is the first in A Murder in the Mountains series.

Why the author wrote this book:

I grew up reading Nancy Drew and Agatha Christie, and I love mysteries. Particularly, I loved Christie's Tommy and Tuppence mysteries--based on married sleuths. I took this concept and integrated it with Thomas and Tess Spencer in the Murder in the Mountains novels, except Tess is the sleuth and Thomas is a lawyer. I wanted to bring modern-day West Virginia to life for readers, since I grew up and now live here...and the mountains are an excellent setting for these psychological mysteries. As with all my books, I focus on marriage relationships and how God uses those to shape us.
