DEATH WAXED OVER by Tim Myers (Berkley)
Tim Myers knows how to tell a story that will keep his fans coming back for more. Harrison Black, owner of candle shop At Wick's End, is facing stiff competition from a new franchise whose owner threatens to bury him. Unfortunately, the shoe is on the other foot according to the wife of a newspaper editor when the newcomer is shot right in front of him. Harrison has his work cut out for him when he tries to prove his innocence. Throw in a tight budget and a stalker, and there's enough tension for a lively, well-plotted cozy. What more could you ask for a Sunday afternoon read--except maybe a nice cup of Earl Grey?
