Cover image of Murder by Numbers by Megan MayfairThis is one murder that doesn’t add up…

Following a spectacular business failure, Clara Mitchell returns to her coastal hometown, Lemon Tree Bay, with an inglorious thud. Living with her mum and working in a hair salon, she’s determined to repay her debts and get back to glamorous city living.

When she meets poker-faced accountant Lucas Pepper, sparks fly, however, their blossoming romance slips into the red as he becomes the prime suspect in the murder of his uncle.

Convinced of Lucas’s innocence, Clara locks horns with her ex-boyfriend – local bad boy turned police officer, Senior Constable Adam Billings. He’s desperate to prove Lucas guilty and protect Clara at all costs.

With evidence threatening to sink Lucas, Clara must unravel the mystery using a trusty grapevine of local gossip and her somewhat unreliable intuition. Will she save Lucas from mounting charges in time, or was Adam right all along?

Megan dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:

Romantic, suspenseful and puzzling, Murder by Numbers is the first book in the Lemon Tree Bay Mysteries. These stories will follow Clara Mitchell as she navigates murder, poisonings, theft and general chaos in her quirky beachside hometown while pursuing a romance with accountant Lucas Pepper. But things are never simple with her feelings and amateur sleuthing constantly clouded by local police officer, and Clara’s ex-boyfriend, Senior Constable Adam Billings, who is determined to protect her at any cost.
