There I was, just minding my own business. I was typing away at my computer (trying to finish my next book, ya know?). These two ruffians showed up and blocked my lighting.
“Can I help you?” I ask, pulling my earbuds out.
One stepped closer to me. “Give us the map.”
Now, I like to think I’m a pretty reasonable person, but I thought that was rather rude. Definitely not the way to get me to cooperate. “What map?”
The two exchanged looks. “The map to the mines,” the other one said.
I blinked owlishly at them. “I really have no idea what you’re talking about. If you’ll excuse me, I need to get back to writing.”
I turned back to my computer. As I went to put my earbuds back in, the one closest to me grabbed my wrist.
“I said, give me the map.”
I sighed. This guy’s like a broken record player. “I don’t know what you’re talking about!”
The two stepped back and whispered to each other with occasional glances in my direction. It was both annoying and nerve-wracking at the same time. All this for a map? What map are they even talking about?
“So, you’re saying you don’t have the map for the Lost Dutchman’s Mine?”
The Lost Dutchman’s Mine? What’s that? “No, but now you have me curious…”
The two paled slightly before tucking tail and running out of the shop.
Well, that was rather odd…do you know what they were talking about?

About the Book
There’s a deadly secret in them thar hills—and gold, or so they say.
Deeply in debt to a wealthy local, Charles Sinclair, Dorothy Hodges’ father finally promises she’ll pay and in gold, no less. If only Dorothy could take to take the promises he spins out of thin air and turn them into that gold, all would be well.
With the help of a strange, rumpled man, Dorothy does manage to bring payment to one of Sinclair’s sons only to discover it won’t pay off the debt. Will the next payment be enough? The next?
When Charles Sinclair ends up dead, Dorothy is the obvious prime suspect, but Sinclair’s son isn’t so certain. Together they work to clear her name and find the real murderer of the Superstitions, but will they find the answers buried in those hills?
Find out in this next book in the Ever After Mysteries, combining beloved fairy tales and mysteries. The Lost Dutchman’s Secret offers a retelling of “Rumplestilskin” that requires more digging than a miner searching for The Lost Dutchman Mine.
