A muerte, a mystery, and a pocket full of marigolds.

tree. A town that’s about to unveil an ancient magical manuscript, the Rose Grimoire.

Vicente de la Cruz, a man as warm and colorful as the music he composes, catches her attention, but she’s determined to never let her heart be stolen again. Especially by

Vicente who could be her prime suspect in a theft and a murder—or the next one to fall victim to the grimoire’s dark magic.

About the Author

A latchkey kid of film noir, cozy mysteries, and gritty detective novels, Nikki Woolfolk writes humorous mysteries with a bite.

Proud Blerd and self-proclaimed Kween of the Side-Eye, award-winning author Nikki Woolfolk sculpts decadent desserts and fantastical fiction with equal skill and flair.

When she’s not playing a never-ending game of “what if” in a writing space that’s part DieselPunk, part Willy Wonka, she’s drawing on her former STEM career and collection of quirky experiences to work up new recipes in her kitchen (tasting encouraged), designing her Goth-inspired garden (tasting decidedly DISCOURAGED), and mashing up real and fictional worlds on social media (virtual kitchen table is always open).
