Tori Mulligan is no stranger to death—she’s been the editor and writer of the obituary pages and the murder mystery column of her hometown paper for the last few years. But when her position at the Gazette gets the axe, Tori is sucked into a sticky situation with a local veterinary clinic, a handsome widower, an adorable dog, and a slew of sketchy characters. Can Tori find “whodunit” in her real life murder mystery before she becomes front-page news?

D.W. Earnhardt was born and raised in the Sandhills of North Carolina, reading anything she could get her hands on. But the stories that drew her back, again and again, included her dad's Alfred Hitchcock magazines, Agatha Christie books, Sherlock Holmes, Nancy Drew, and Edgar Allen Poe. This hodge-podge of literature—plus D.W.'s love of family, food, and small towns—led her to the cozy mystery genre.

When D.W. isn't spending time with family or plotting out the next Tori Mulligan Mystery, you can find her learning the Irish language, researching local history, or trying to find new ways to avoid housework.
