Unstrung / A Blanchard House Mystery
by Cynthia Morrow
Althea Stewart has had it with Hollywood. Fed up with the dog-eat-dog life of a classical musician, her alcoholic ex-husband, and the shallow dating pool know as LA, Althea heads north to Kirkland, WA. She soon convinces her best friend, cellist Grace Sullivan, to join her in opening a private music school in a historic property known as Blanchard House where music meets murder.
