An Otter Lake Mystery

Welcome to Otter Lake, where the relaxing, restorative atmosphere is to die for.

In Skinny Dipping with Murder, Erica Bloom reluctantly returns to her small New Hampshire hometown when her new-age-y, well-meaning mother begins to lose her grip on the business. After eight years, nothing’s changed—except for the body in the well. Now people are turning up dead, and Erica’s appearance in town makes her the prime suspect. To make matters worse, the town sheriff just happens to be Erica’s old nemesis, Grady Forrester…who also happens to be hotter than ever. Can Erica find a way to dig up the truth to this mystery before someone digs her grave?

Auralee Wallace

Auralee Wallace is the author of the Otter Lake Mystery series which includes Skinny Dipping with Murder and Pumpkin Picking with Murder. She has played many roles in her life, including college professor, balloon seller, and collections agent. When this semi-natural blonde mother of three children (and psychiatric nurse to two rescue cats) isn't writing humorous novels about quirky characters, she can often be found pontificating about the Golden Age of soap operas or warring with a family of peregrine falcons for the rights to her backyard.
