A Stone’s Throw

Cobble Cove Mysteries Book 1

by Debbie De Louise

Genre: Cozy Mystery, Romantic Suspense


Widowed librarian Alicia Fairmont needs answers…

After her husband is killed in a hit and run accident, Alicia travels

upstate to his hometown of Cobble Cove, New York, hoping to locate

his estranged family and shed light on his mysterious past.

Anticipating staying only a weekend, her visit is extended when she

accepts a job at the town’s library.

Secrets stretch decades into the past… Assisted by handsome newspaper

publisher and aspiring novelist, John McKinney, Alicia discovers a

connection between her absent in-laws and a secret John’s father

has kept for over sixty years. But her investigation is interrupted

when she receives word her house has burned and arson is suspected,

sending her rushing back to Long Island, accompanied by John.

Back in Cobble Cove, cryptic clues are uncovered…

When Alicia returns, she finds a strange diary, confiscated letters, and a

digital audio device containing a recording made the day her husband

was killed. Anonymous notes warn Alicia to leave town, but she can’t

turn her back on the mystery—or her attraction to John. As the

pieces begin to fall into place, evidence points to John’s

involvement in her husband’s accident.

 The past and present threaten to collide, and Alicia confronts her fears…

Has she fallen in love with her husband’s killer?
