Short Synopsis
Valerie Wilson Wesley presents Book 3 in the Odessa Jones Mystery series.

Full Synopsis
With pandemic-fearing city dwellers fleeing to the New Jersey suburbs, Risko Realty—and Odessa Jones—are having their best year ever. Finally on solid financial footing, Odessa is debt-free and looking forward to the future. But she doesn't need second sight to sense her new young co-worker, Anna Lee, is on edge—and straight-up terrified—in spite of her hot sales record and sunny, outgoing attitude. And when Anna is killed in a hit-and-run, Odessa sees immediately that it was no accident . . .

It's soon clear that Anna was being stalked. But even with the help of family, friends—and Odessa's feisty cat, Juniper—Odessa is coming up with more questions than clues. Why was Anna avoiding influential real-estate mogul Emily Delbarton? Why is Delbarton's decidedly creepy brother so fixated on Anna? Did Anna make enemies through her previous job at the town's exclusive gentlemen's club? And can Odessa rule out her own ex-fiancé—who's back in her life with an astounding connection to Anna—and wanting a second chance? Finding the answers will come at an increasingly deadly cost—one Odessa's talents must somehow trap a killer to repay . . .

"A SHIMMER OF RED being a cozy, Dessa solves these mysteries. She does so with the help, as usual, of her ‘Risko Realty Family’ and her spirit kinswomen. That fact reveals, as this series consistently does, that cozies are about communities, and can help to redefine communities in ways that are inspiring, empowering, and beautiful." —Reviewing the Evidence
