Beside Still Waters: A Chautauqua Murder Mystery (Paperback)
Mimi Goldman is back-on a missing-persons case that becomes the third page-turning Chautauqua murder mystery novel from award-winning New York Post headline writer Deb Pines. This time, the lovable Chautauquan Daily reporter, NYC expat and single mom is asked to find Jenny Van Alstine, a beautiful feminist artist, who has disappeared from Chautauqua. Instead, Mimi finds a surprising number of Jenn-emies: haters, lovers, secret-keepers-and one killer determined to stop Mimi before she stops them. BESIDE STILL WATERS, the 2017 addition to an Agatha Christie-like mystery series, offers page-turning suspense. Romance. And the unforgettable setting of Chautauqua, NY, a quirky churchy historic lakeside summer arts community that in 1874 launched an adult-education movement Teddy Roosevelt called the "most American thing in America." Praise for Pines' debut 2013 IN THE SHADOW OF DEATH: "If you enjoy an old-fashioned whodunit, it's perfect." Jamestown (N.Y.) Post-Journal Praise for Pines' 2015 DELIVER US FROM EVIL: "An enjoyable, agreeably paced reading experience with solid character development and numerous plot twists" from a "mystery author whose pleasure in her characters remains evident and welcome." Kirkus Reviews.
