Buying Murder

Nancy will speak and sign books at Bookshop Santa Cruz on July 26 at 7pm.

Nancy Lynn Jarvis announces her fourth mystery
The Widow's Walk League
Santa Cruz husbands are being murdered. The local news media is buzzing because a dark-clad figure described by witnesses as Death has been seen lurking nearby each time a murder is committed.

When the newly-made widows start hiring real estate agent, Regan McHenry, to sell their houses, she discovers all the murdered men have something in common: their wives belong to a walking group called The Widow's Walk League.

No wonder Regan is worried when the group's leader starts paying special attention to her husband, Tom.

Visit Nancy's website to read the first chapters of all four of her mysteries set in Bonny Doon and Santa Cruz County: www.GoodReadMysteries.com.

Nancy will be at the Quail & Thistle on Alba Road during the DoonArt Studio Tours on July 16-17.  See Studio Tour ad below and visit The Quail & Thistle Site: http://quailandthistle.com/2011/06/bonny-doon-studio-tour-july-16-17/

Farming family seeks home in Bonny Doon
We are a family of 3 seeking a place to live long term in Bonny Doon. We have goats, chickens, bunnies, bees, cats and a dog. We have been a part of the North Coast Community for many years and have excellent, abundant local references. I will be working at Bonny Doon Elementary School this year and seek a safe, private long term home. We farm in the urban farming footprint so we don't need extensive land per se, although that would be welcome. We want a place to grow food and flowers. We are excellent neighbors who share the bounty of things we grow such as eggs, cheese, milk etc. We have a polite 11 year old son who just graduated from Pacific School after attending pre-school through 6th grade there. During the fires we hosted 12 families at our home. We are community oriented people seeking a place to care for as our own for years to come. Please contact Megan at egg@sonic.net or 831-420-7599 if you have something that might be a good fit. $1,650-$1,900) 2 or more bedrooms please.

Saturday & Sunday, July 16-17, 11:00 am - 5:00 pm
