AuthorsLive@GreenwichLibrary Series

AuthorsLive@Byram: 'No Trouble at All' by Lisa Acerbo

'It’s a bad day for Sophie Carter when she stumbles across a dead body in the woods. But when the suspected murderer turns out to be a leather-clad vagabond who died in 1889, her carefully controlled quiet life explodes. Not only is Sophie in the wrong place at the wrong time, but as a local history buff who loves old legends, she knows too much about the past to remain uninvolved. Trouble is a killer and no one can escape'
