The Deadliest Blessing

Volume 3 in Jeannette de Beauvoir’s Provincetown Mystery Series

Available June 1, 2018

If there’s a dead body anywhere in Provincetown, wedding consultant Sydney Riley is going to be the one to find it!

The seaside town’s annual Portuguese Festival is approaching and it looks like smooth sailing until Sydney’s neighbor decides to have construction done—and finds more than she bargained for inside her wall.

Now Sydney is again balancing her work at the Race Point Inn with an unexpected adventure that will eventually involve fishermen, gunrunners, a mummified cat, a family fortune, misplaced heirs, a girl with a mysterious past, and lots and lots of Portuguese food. The Blessing of the Fleet is coming up, and unless Sydney can find the key to a decades-old murder, it might yet come back to haunt everyone in this otherwise-peaceful fishing village.

The Deadliest Blessing is available in mass-market paperback and ebook formats, both online and from local independent booksellers.
