“I loved Zapped . . . Good writing with humour and a dab of irony . . . had me hooked right from the opening chapter.” —Jenni Buhr, Goodreads review “Verburg is a must for fans of the ‘smart cozy’. . . a wonderful cast of characters I hope to meet again soon.” —Sandra J. McGibbon, Amazon review A posh waterfront lawn party. To inventor Pam Nash, it’s the perfect VIP launch for Zappa, her new “Taser for pacifists.” To Pam's daughter Ashley, it’s the perfect way to celebrate turning 21—and lose whoever's been texting her death threats. To Haggis Mack, the rock bagpiper Ashley's divorcing, it's one last shot. To soup-chef Lydia Vivaldi and her Wampanoag partner Mudge Miles, it's a catering offer they can't refuse. Even Cape Cod's famous artist-author Edgar Rowdey joins the party. Sunshine and seafood, champagne and cake, military brass and venture capitalists—what could go wrong? Lydia spots the grim answer floating face down beside the Nashes' dock. Did Ashley’s stalker hit the wrong target? Is her childhood nanny lying about why she came back to Compass Point for her baby's birthday? And what happened to the Zappa launch guest who sailed here from D.C. but never showed up at the demo? As rumors, dark secrets, and violence ripple through their village, it's time for Edgar Rowdey to switch from spectator to sleuth.

"Everything I want in a mystery...a plot that keeps you turning pages, terrific dialog.... I enjoyed every minute of it." Cape Cod! To Lydia Vivaldi, the quaint seaside village of Quansett looks like sanctuary -- until she learns her one friend here is dead. How could an expert Fix-It Chick fall off a ladder at a film shoot? When Lydia lands a soup-chef job at Leo's Back End, she starts asking questions. Gossip and recollections from the locals -- a hippie bookstore clerk, an ex-police photographer, a Wampanoag pastry chef, a pair of Broadway musical composers -- reveal some dark secrets behind those white picket fences. Still Lydia's stonewalled by the flirtatious filmmaker and warned off by the police. Only Edgar Rowdey, famous artist-author of creepy little storybooks, shares her doubts about the "accident." Can this unlikely pair of detectives find out what really happened before it happens again?
