Hi, I’m Annabelle Boucher, but everyone calls me Lucky. Despite my nickname, I’m a magnet for trouble. I can get myself into more jams and pickles than ants at a picnic. My most recent predicament involves being nearly killed by a dead body then finding a note that implicates me in the murder. My only option is to find the killer and clear my name. Fortunately, I have the help of a surly ex FBI agent, a 102-year-old mobster that looks like Mrs. Claus, and my wacky menagerie of rescue animals.

“I really enjoyed this book. Well written and a great plot line. It kept me riveted. Will definitely read more by this author.!” by Amazon Customer
When the skulls prove to be fake, and a woman’s body is found on the bottom of the cliff, Gia knows the killer would rather see her dead than let her confirm the victims’ identity.
But that’s not what worries her at all. The most worrisome thing is that everyone who has arrived at the cliff-top monastery to wait for Gina to finish her job, stands only to gain a great deal from identification of the victim’s skull. There is no one, but absolutely no one, who stands to lose if the skull proves to be that of the deceased patriarch. So why is someone trying to sabotage Gina’s reconstructive work…?
