Mariners Compass


Author: Earlene Fowler
1 (1 Votes)
The newest Benni Harper mystery from the three-time Agatha Award Nominee and author of Dove in the Window. The ex-cowgirl, quilter, and resident sleuth of San Celina, California, is back-navigating her way through a stormy sea of puzzling clues to a home she never knew existed... Jacob Chandler knew everything about Benni Harper, and in his house were pieces of her life: a scrapbook of newspaper clippings that covered her life and work. When Jacob Chandler died, he left his home in Morro Bay and all its contents to Benni-the only stipulation being that she had to stay in the house for two weeks, alone, before the inheritance became hers. But Benni Harper has never even heard of Jacob Chandler. To discover whether he is her guardian angel or personal demon, she must follow the scavenger-hunt clues he has set up for her throughout his home. The waters are rough and the direction unclear as she finds herself setting a course to a time and place in her own past-a place Benni Harper and Jacob Chandler both knew as home...

"Earlene Fowler writes from the heart, and her Benni Harper is a true original." -Susan Rogers Cooper, author of Doctors and Lawyers and Such
