What’s the worst that can go wrong on a date? Murder.

When Ruby goes to meet him, she finds his dead body instead. A murderer has struck, and the cunning detective who ‘runs’ the town names her as the prime suspect. Ruby can’t run, but staying might mean falling victim herself.

When Ruby arrives to meet with the bride, the last thing she expects to find is her corpse instead, face plastered in Ruby’s highly unique marzipan frosting. Ruby’s suspect number one again, and if she can’t solve the mystery, she’ll be locked up while the real murderer roams free.

That is, until the corpse of the ‘vampire’ washes up on the beach, right in front of her food truck. Ruby’s not going to let this mystery go unsolved, even if it means annoying the local detective and the murderer themselves.
Can Ruby discover the identity of the killer clown? Or will he get the last laugh?

When Ruby enters the darkened guesthouse, the last thing she expects is all her friends yelling ‘surprise!’ She’s delighted until the lights click on to reveal the dead body of Ruby’s sworn enemy lying in a pile of her birthday presents.

It’s going to be a killer Christmas…

Until the lights come on and reveal the dead body of the mayor himself. It’s murder, and with very few leads for the local detectives to follow, it’s time to shut the town down until further notice—no celebrations, no parties in the street and certainly no caroling.
