The Serenity Stone Murder by Marianne Jones

Serenity Stone

About the Book

What are two nice middle-aged church ladies doing at a New Age goddess conference? And what does it have to do with the mysterious death of Thunder Bay’s casino manager? Will Mary Carlisle, organist at St. Stephen’s Church, capture the heart of Thomas Greenfield, church gardener?

Find out the answers to these, and other burning questions in The Serenity Stone Murder, a kinder, gentler murder mystery set in Thunder Bay, Ontario, home of the Sleeping Giant, the Hoito Restaurant, and the world-famous Persion cinnamon bun. For those who like their mysteries served up with a side dish of humour.

Book Excerpt

“What? I’m not following you,” Margaret protested weakly.

“The hell you aren’t. You’ve been tailing me all over town since the funeral. Yes, I saw you there, you and your friend. What’s going on?”

“Nothing.” Margaret knew she sounded like a guilty child, but didn’t know what else to say.

“What’s your connection with Doug Whalen anyway?”

“We’re just friends.”

“He didn’t have any…friends.”

Margaret stood silent, feeling the rain plaster her hair to her face. He must have noticed the rain, too, because he cut the conversation short.

“Look, I’m a lawyer, and I can tell you that if I see you or your friend lurking around me again, there will be repercussions!” He strode quickly back towards the downtown area.

“I hope your fancy suit gets ruined,” Margaret muttered, making sure he was safely out of earshot first. Bedraggled, angry and humiliated, she had no choice but to head to the hotel to wait for Louise.

She didn’t have to wait long. Before she even had a chance to change out of her wet clothes, she heard a knock at the door.
