As Stella Wright's Nantucket candle store thrives, her knack for solving mysteries burns equally bright-especially when a Halloween haunted house uncovers evidence of a centuries-old murder . . .

When Stella's friend inherits a creaky, abandoned home in Nantucket, she knows it's the perfect setting for the town's annual Halloween fundraiser. A deserted, boarded-up building on the property-once used as a candle-making shop-adds to the creepy ambiance. But as Stella explores the shack's dilapidated walls, she discovers a terrible secret- the skeleton of a Quaker woman, wrapped in blood-soaked clothing and hidden deep within a stone hearth . . .

While police investigate, Stella wastes no time asking for help from friends with long ties to Nantucket's intricate history. The key to the murder may lie within a scorching 18th century love triangle that pit two best friends against one another over a dubious man. But before the case is solved, another life will be claimed-leaving Stella to wonder who in Nantucket is friend, and who is foe . . .

Praise for Murder's No Votive Confidence A charming mystery with believable, likeable characters. Check it out.

Christin Brecher was born and raised in New York City. The idea to write the Nantucket Candle Maker series sprang from her life-long connection to the small island off the coast of Massachusetts. Spending summers there as a child, Christin read from her family's library of mystery novels, after which she began to imagine stories inspired by the island's whaling heyday, its notoriously foggy nights, and during long bike rides to the beach. After many years in marketing for the publishing industry, followed by years raising her children, The Nantucket Candle Maker Mysteries are Christin's debut series. Visit her at
