VERY GOOD: This book and its dust jacket are in excellent condition, showing very little sign of use or wear. The previous owner has written in ink the series number on the book’s front inside cover (covered by the front inside flap of the dust jacket), but there is no other writing in the book, leaving the pages clean.
Continued from the dust jacket: “Betrugen Publishing in Fort Worth was supposed to be Kate’s ticket to the big time. She cleverly parlayed her talents and a column in a popular crochet magazine into a book deal with the powerful publisher.
“But just when her dreams seem to be within her grasp, her contract with the Betrugen proves to be nothing but an underhanded scheme to steal her designs. To make matters worse, she decides to confront Stefan Betrugen directly about his deceitful tactics and stumbles upon a crime scene in his office.
“Kate’s unfortunate timing and obvious disdain for Betrugen land her at the top of the suspect list. Now she must clear her name, retrieve her designs, and rebuild her fledgling career as an author, and it all starts by smoking out the real killer.”
