Wendy Hornsby Synopsis: No Harm by Wendy Hornsby is her first of two Kate Teague novels. Following the murder of Kate Teague’s mother, a crowd has turned out for her funeral. It’s not because they loved her — nobody did – but simply out of curiosity. This town has never seen a murder so brutal. The police suspect a mugging gone wrong and begin searching for drug addicts. But that can’t be the case once they find her purse – full of cash and cards. The purse surfaced on the beach of Kate’s family home three days after the attack, which means the murderer is nearby — and heiress Kate appears to be the next target. After the first attempt on her life fails, Kate starts her own investigation. Everyone in town had a reason to hate her mother, but why would anybody try to kill Kate Teague?
