Detective Mark Taber and his new bride Donna, an amateur sleuth, are ready to take a much-needed break from crime-solving and finally enjoy their long-awaited honeymoon in the quartz-rich mountains of Arkansas, but unfortunately for them, crime never takes a break. When their car breaks down at the site of the first murder the county has seen in a century, they find themselves in a bind – no transportation and at the center of an overwhelming firestorm for an overworked sheriff. He needs their help. Will they temporarily forgo their plans to find a murderer or will the possibility of netting quartz clusters and county fair winning recipes pull them in another direction?

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
It is part of the series, but I decided to include details from our own vacation in Arkansas–everything from getting lost to our search for quartz. Fortunately, we didn't run across any dead bodies.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
My central character, Donna Tollhouse Taber, is based on my mother, a retired nurse.My husband insists there is a lot of me in Donna. It's probably her nosiness.
Other characters are a mishmash of people I've met and those I wish I had met.
