Loose Screw (Dusty Deals Mystery Series)
by Rae Davies
Lucy Mathews, crime reporter turned antiques dealer, avoids confrontation like a home perm. She even lets a cat shove her around. When Lucy trips over the body of a relics trader, her ex-boss asks her to cover the story. She tries to tell him no, but old habits die hard and soon she finds herself in the path of a killer and the exasperating, if attractive, detective in charge.
