Description
Crossing the Lion by Cynthia Baxter
CAN A SMALL-TOWN PET DETECTIVE HUNT DOWN A BEAST OF A KILLER IN ITS OWN LAIR?

Veterinarian Jessica Popper is still basking in newlywedded bliss when neighbors Betty and Winston beg her to investigate the suspicious death of Linus Merrywood, king of the corporate jungle. On stormy Solitude Island, the Merrywoods have enjoyed the lion's share of wealth for generations. But from the suspects to the surroundings, Jess feels as if she's walked straight into an old-fashioned game of Clue -- except here the stakes are life and death. />
There's the butler named Jives, a sexy assistant named Scarlett, teatime in the conservatory, and a house with secret passageways, moving walls, and a wailing aunt locked in the attic. With a storm raging around the island and Jess's least favorite police detective assigned to the case, things are looking dire until Jess's lionhearted husband, Nick, braves his way to Solitude to rescue her. Now it's the two of them against a family steeped in secrets -- and a killer on the prowl who's ferociously determined to protect the biggest family secret of all.
