Honeymoons Can Be Murder
Charlie Parker Mysteries, Book 6
October 12, 2009
Charlie and Drake get a dream honeymoon--three months in a secluded mountain cabin near the famous Taos Ski Valley, while their home in Albuquerque is under construction. Drake will operate his helicopter for skiers and Charlie finds herself drawn into a case that combines the Taos art world, stolen religious artifacts, and murder.
It's Christmas and Charlie and Drake are finally able to go on their dream honeymoon. It's a mixed blessing--they get to spend three months at the famed Taos Ski Valley, but Drake will be working, shuttling skiers with his helicopter. When Drake's assistant, Eloy Romero, is accused of killing his own brother, a Catholic priest, Charlie offers to help sort out the clues.
Drawn into the art world for which Taos is known, Charlie and her sidekick dog Rusty begin to uncover connections between the murdered priest and the theft of millions of dollars in religious artifacts. As the pieces click into place, she finds that she, Rusty and Drake are placing their lives on the line.
