As Deadly Does
Cousin Harriet was dead, murdered, and Jonne was one of the many suspects. But clearing herself didn't matter half as much as convincing herself that the man she loved wasn't the murderer.

Death of an Heiress...

To know Harriet Ussher was to hate her. Spoiled, arrogant, the blonde heiress treated everyone with contempt. So when she was found murdered in the summerhouse at Whisperwood, the night of her 21st birthday party, the police had a number of suspects to choose from. There was Tim Shaw, the hot-tempered young manager of the...

USssher Iron Words, who had quarreled with Harriet earlier that evening. There was her stepfather, Willliam Rodman, and his luxury-loving playboy son, Richard. There was Michael Zachary, the sailor she had married on impulse - a marriage that had been qickly annulled. And there was her pretty "poor relation" cousin, Jonne Hale, who found the body. Jonne knew she wasn't guilty, and she didn't want to believe any of the others were either. Certainly not Tim... or Richard. But somebody had killed Harriett... somebody who believed Jonne knew more that she was admitting and marked her for murder too!

No Time for Love…

“Give me a chance,” Tim murmured, his lips against her hair, “I've loved you from the first moment I saw you…”
“Please,” Jonne said, drawing away from him. “I can't think of marrying anyone as long as this dreadful mystery is hanging over our heads.”
Tim's arms dropped to his sides. “Surely you don't think I had anything to do with Harriet's murder,” he said stiffly.
Jonne buried her face in her hands: “I -- I don't know, Tim,” she said miserably. “I don't know what to think any more. You accuse Richard and he accuses you. And -- and Sheriff Ambler seems to think everyone is guilty!”
