If You Like Amanda Flower Books, You’ll Love…

Amanda Flower Synopses: Maid of Murder is the first book in Amanda Flower’s India Hayes series. India Hayes, a college librarian and reluctant bridesmaid, is thrown into the role of amateur detective as she tracks down the person who murdered her childhood friend and framed her brother for the murder.

Andi Unexpected by Amanda Flower is the first Andi Boggs novel. After the sudden death of their parents in the jungles of Central America, twelve-year-old science geek Andora ‘Andi’ Boggs and her diva teenager of a sister, Bethany, move to rural Killdeer, Ohio to live with their eccentric twenty-something aunt. And while the timeworn house has been home to the Boggs family for generations, Andi doesn’t feel at home at all. Exploring the attic in her grief, she discovers proof of another Andora Boggs in the family tree hidden in a trunk from the 1930s. Despite the meddling of the citizens of Killdeer, Andi and her new friend, Colin Carter, are determined to find out who this first Andora was, how she vanished, and why no one in town wants to talk about her. As more and more unanswered questions pile up, Andi and Colin must decide who they can trust with their secrets and who is interested in Andora’s story for the wrong reasons.
