This is book number 2 in the A Love Is Murder Mystery series.

When real life starts mimicking the plot of one of the romance books that line the shelves in her bookstore, it's up to Lizzie Hale to catch the killer, in this riveting new Love is Murder mystery.

Lizzie Hale thought mail-order brides existed only between the pages of the historical romances she stocks in her bookstore, Love Under the Covers. But when not one, but two local men introduce her to their respective new wives, she's forced to reevaluate that notion. 

Lizzie is surprised when Al Little, the owner of the local hardware store, asks Lizzie and her aunt Charmaine to help Svetlana, his new bride straight from Russia, to settle into Tinker's Creek, but they agree. 

Everything is going swimmingly—until a wrench gets thrown into their plans when Svetlana is found drowned in the creek. 

With Al's suspicious best friend—who has his own mysterious mail-order bride—and the secretive matchmaker who put them together, Lizzie's got more suspects than she knows what to do with. But she'll have to nail down who the killer is fast, before someone else winds up dead.
Mimi Granger began her publishing career writing historical romance. Many years later, there’s still nothing she likes better than a happily-ever-after . . . as long as there’s a little murder and mayhem thrown in. Her Love Is Murder Mysteries provide the perfect opportunity to salute the two genres she loves most—romance and mystery—and to play out every reader’s dream of owning a fabulous bookstore. Mimi lives outside of Cleveland with her own personal romance hero and two dogs: Eliot, an enthusiastic Airedale, and Lucy, who is the inspiration for Violet in Mimi’s stories (including the incredible amount of shed fur).

Praise for the Love is Murder Mystery Series

"Lizzie Hale is a bookstore owner whose two areas of expertise are baseball and romance novels and she finds herself using that knowledge as she tries to figure out who killed former actor—and local celebrity—turned rancher, Brody Pierce. Add in one hunky park ranger who happens to be a former major league player, one over-sized dog of questionable parentage that always seems to be shedding, plus some small-town secrets and you end up with a charming and funny mystery. Cozy fans will definitely enjoy this series debut—I did!"
Sofie Ryan, New York Times bestselling author of Undercover Kitty

"What’s not to like? Mimi Granger gives us a romance-themed bookstore, intrigue, and a cast of delightful characters to make Death of a Red-Hot Rancher a winner of a cozy mystery. Lizzy Hale, owner of her bookstore, Love Under Covers, is both smart and vulnerable as she figures out who in town killed off their most eligible bachelor. It’s a superb start to a series that will thrill readers for years to come!"
Dorothy St. James, author of The Broken Spine

"Granger’s first mystery features a small, gossipy town; an animal sidekick;, and a hint of romance that will delight cozy readers."

"Granger’s debut mystery combines murder with all things amatory....A cozy combination of mystery and romance featuring an expert on romance novels who needs some practical lessons in love."
