<b>Named 2019 Best Women's Detective Fiction, Texas Association of Authors</b> <br /><i>Will a case of mistaken identity be the death of her?</i> <br />Madison Reynolds is looking forward to a few days of rest and relaxation. Her best friend Genny is judging a celebrity bake-off near DC, so it鈥檚 the perfect opportunity for a girl鈥檚 getaway. With fun-loving Granny Bert in tow, the trio heads to the very heart of the Intel community. Deep in alphabet soup territory鈥攕urrounded by CIA, NSA, FBI and more鈥攊t takes only moments for things to go awry.<p></p> <br />A mix-up at the airport leaves Madison with the wrong luggage, and a last-minute change in accommodations lands them at <i>The Columbia Inn at Peralynna.</i> How can they know its ties to the spy world will soon spin them into its web?<p></p><br />Designed as a CIA safe house, the inn has a fascinating history. When it seems a mysterious man in a dark coat is following her, Madison scoffs at her over-action imagination. She鈥檚 listened to too many spy tales, spun by the innkeeper herself.

She鈥檚 raised them to do the right thing, no matter the consequence, but will their quest for justice put them in danger? <p></p><br />Thrust into impossible situations of being in the wrong place at the wrong time, the twins risk everything to save their school, while deep in spy territory, Madison and Genny race against the clock鈥攁nd the elements鈥攖o save Granny Bert鈥檚 life.<p></p> <br />The award-winning <i>The Sisters, Texas Mystery Series</i> continues in this exciting Book 7.
