Annie Hansen returns to Centuries & Sleuths with her second Kelly Clark Mystery Bean in Love.
Kelly Clark is making quite a comeback in her hometown of Geneva, IL after her divorce. She’s in love, her relationships are solid, and her finances are back on track due to her sister’s generous offer to live rent free in the apartment above Chocolate Love, a favorite hang-out in the Historic District. When Kelly’s sister, Nikki, decides to expand her Chocolate Love empire by opening a new coffee shop, Bean in Love, the Clark family pulls together to help.
As the local fall festivals kick into high gear, trouble comes blowing into town with rumors of a local ghost causing real trouble in town. When a beloved local dies at the Geneva History Center under suspicious circumstances, Kelly and Nikki are called on to figure out what happened. Could a ghost from the past really have a hand in the death? Things get complicated when the sisters face an unexpected pregnancy, a surprise proposal, and a possible foreclosure. All of the stress makes Kelly question if she is really moving on with her life or if she’s just fooling herself. After all, Kelly’s been in love and it ended horribly. Could it really be better for her this time around?
