Crime Analyst Caitlyn Tilson Pepper inherits a vineyard and two Shakespearean theaters in a northern California town from a mysterious aunt and becomes a target for murder. Cait’s investigation into the life and death of her aunt Tasha forces her down a road paved with familial lies, devastating secrets, and multiple murders. Marcus Singer, a convicted felon and also Tasha’s secretary, and Rachel Cross, a neighbor and Shakespearean actress, resent Cait’s inheritance, but with the help of Royal Tanner (RT), a Navy SEAL, Cait is able to uncover the lies beneath the murders.
After a couple of arson attempts at the Elizabethan Theater, blasts of birdshot intended for Cait, and the suspicious nature of Tasha’s autopsy, Cait has a big decision to make: accept her inheritance and move to California or return to the job she loves in Ohio.
Twisted Vines is a novel of suspense. The climax surprises Cait and the police, as it will the reader.
