https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/snuffed-out-valona-jones/1141345375?ean=9781639102051Twin sisters Tabby and Sage co-own a candle shop, but will it all go up in flames in Valona Jones’ series debut, perfect for fans of Amanda Flower and Bailey Cates.
30-year-old fraternal twins Tabby and Sage Winslow own The Book and Candle Shop in Savannah. Sage is hot-headed and impulsive while Tabby is calm and collected, making them the perfect partnership. When one of their customers is found murdered, from a blow to the head, that partnership is put to the test.
Blithe McAdam had been seen in a heated argument with shop clerk Gerard, which immediately makes him suspect number one. The twins are convinced of Gerard’s innocence and start digging into Blithe’s past. But no one is cooperating. The neighbor who found the body isn’t talking, medical examiner Quig won’t give any details about the autopsy, and nasty rumors begin surfacing about the drowning of Blithe’s father years earlier—evidence that could seal Gerard’s fate.
Tabby and Sage dig desperately for the truth. But it’s not only their friend who’s in peril. With the clock ticking, the twins find themselves in the grip of an unseen and deadly energy that has seeped into their midst—and in the sights of a ruthless killer.

LUMINARY OF DEATH
Sage Winslow’s good fortune at earning the nursery manager’s favor turns mudpie-ugly when the manager is found dead in his home, poisoned. Running the Christmas tree booth of live lighted trees at the Savannah waterfront has been her dream ever since they started this seasonal booth. Her concerns flare when the police officers interview her as a person of interest in Loren Lee Suffield’s murder.
Sage knows exactly who to call for help, her twin sister and amateur sleuth Tabby Winslow. Her energy-wielding twin successfully cleared their clerk from a murder charge earlier this year, and as it turns out, Tabby is very good at getting people to talk with her and ferreting out secrets. In addition to Sage, suspects include one of Sage’s nursery coworkers, her boyfriend’s new receptionist, a former nursery employee, and Auntie O’s new guy from Florida.
With each question Tabby poses, the light of truth flickers to reveal secrets and lies, though the shadows push back. Sage looks guilty, but Tabby can’t let her sister do time for this murder. Sage didn’t do it. She couldn’t have done it. Could she?
