Ambush at the Arboretum: An (LOL)4 Mystery

When (LOL)4 Mercy McKay finds an unexpected guest under her house, she pulls her sister and friend into a deadly game of detection and deception. Enemies seem to abound on every side and Cypress Point may not recover from the onslaught. Dedicating a new memorial arboretum may be the last thing they accomplish before everything ends in this cozy Christian mystery.
