About the Book:

Josie Posey and her posse of Mahjong Mavens are at it again in this cozy mystery where the retired big-city crime reporter turned small-town crime solver uncovers another murder in her picturesque English Village. When a clockmaker's daughter returns home for a visit, reporter Josie is assigned the task of interviewing the talented watch designer. That very afternoon, the young woman falls from a ladder while inventorying antique clocks. At first, Josie is certain the fall was an accident. Everyone loved Ella McGregor Benjamin. But Ella's deathbed statement is a mysterious riddle that can't be ignored. With her Old English Sheepdog Moe by her side and an ever-growing list of suspects, Josie scrambles to identify the killer before anyone else gets hurt. The local police chief wants Josie to help solve the puzzle but stay out of his murder case. The editor of The Village Gazette wants an in-depth story for the next edition. And somebody wants Josie to stop asking questions. Deadlines loom.

In this fast-paced rollercoaster ride of a mystery, the clock is ticking as Josie vows to find the killer before time runs out.
