Join us for a book release party for Lucy Kerr (AKA Erica O'Rourke) as we celebrate the second book in her Stillwater General mystery series, featuring ER nurse Frankie Stapleton!
Lucy is a long-time friend of the store and a new book from her, whether she writes as Lucy Kerr (or with her YA novels written as Erica O'Rourke) is a cause for celebration.
In the new book, ER nurse Frankie Stapleton has agreed to stay in her sleepy little hometown of Stillwater for three months, helping her estranged sister save the family hardware store, working a few shifts at the local hospital, and most importantly, rebuilding the bridges she burned on her way out of town twelve years ago.
When a pregnant car crash victim arrives at Stillwater General, Frankie and the team race to save both mother and child--but only the baby lives. Rumors swirl that the accident was deliberate, and Frankie's horrified to realize that she let the driver escape. But why would anyone want to kill Kate Tibbs, a social worker and the wife of an up-and-coming local politician? Frankie's investigation turns up plenty of motives, from revenge to dirty politics, and even more suspects. There are secrets in Stillwater, and she's determined to uncover them, even if it means involving her loved ones for help.
But when the baby disappears, her search for the truth becomes a desperate, deadly race against the clock. No matter the cost, Frankie must piece together the truth to stop a killer and save a tiny life in Lucy Kerr's riveting second Stillwater General Mystery, No One Can Know.
"Frankie's the perfect amateur sleuth--untested, quick to jump to conclusions, but entirely bold and sharp. Kerr's set up the makings of a wonderful series, and I'm here for it."
-- Book Riot
"Fascinating characters with dark backstories, and an extremely good plotline, makes this an incredible suspense." -- Suspense Magazine
