The Olivia Penn Mystery Series:

Silence Says the Most

Book Two

 

Silence Says the Most is well written, just like its predecessor, and I felt like I was at home again in the small town of Apple Station. Olivia is a fantastic main character who is smart, witty, and curious … I really enjoyed the easy flow of the story and the way the author connects the dots little by little … The witty banter between the characters is also light-hearted and a fun experience … Silence Says the Most has a great twist at the end of the book that I wasn’t able to guess, but that made complete and total sense … You just can’t beat a small town with its small-town mysteries and small-town characters!” — San Francisco Book Review

Five days before Halloween, fall turns frightful in Apple Station when a child’s drawing entangles Olivia in a murder at a park lake.

Olivia’s hometown is gearing up for its annual Halloween festival, and pumpkins, corn mazes, and autumn vibes are everywhere. All is cozy in the crisp fall air as excitement builds for the costume parade on Friday. A casual Monday lakeside picnic lunch with her forever friend, though, sets off a chain of events that catches Olivia in the wrong place at the wrong time …

Praise for The Olivia Penn Mystery Series:

“Bailey’s winning debut will thrill fans of the cozy mystery genre … Olivia’s vividly sketched hometown of Apple Station is so alive with warmth and local color that it brings to mind a southern version of Stars Hollow from Gilmore Girls … With these engaging, well-conceived characters, and expertly crafted twists that will keep readers guessing, this mystery is sure to please readers looking for an adventure with plenty of intrigue and a comforting conclusion.”
