In A Sleuth Is Born, Bea has a new goal: become “the Agatha Christie of Napa Valley” — or maybe the Jessica Fletcher. Either one will do.

Angela, meanwhile, is catering to the demands of some super-rich tycoons, who’ve chosen to host their elite, private poker event at the Inn. Bea’s so convinced that some sort of scam is afoot, she buys in to the ultra-high-stakes game, just to keep an eye on things.

Turns out, Bea finds inspiration for her mystery writing career, and her first big case, right in her own back yard.
