No Place Like Home, a Rom-Com Mystery eBook by Anne R. Allen is free on Amazon from today, Tuesday 1st to Thursday 3rd January.


NPLH finalThe uber-rich editor of Home decorating magazine loses everything, including her Ponzi-schemer husband, when their luxury wine-country home mysteriously goes up in flames.

Homeless, destitute, presumed dead and branded a criminal, the once-proud Doria has a crash course in how the other half lives.

Meanwhile, reluctant sleuth Camilla Randall is facing homelessness and destitution too, as Doria’s husband’s schemes unravel and take down innocent bystanders along the way.

When the mysterious—and dangerously attractive—Mr. X. turns up at Camilla’s bookstore looking for clues to the death of a missing homeless man, Camilla joins in the search.

With the help of brave trio of homeless people and a little dog named Toto, Doria, Camilla and Mr. X journey to unmask the real killer and reveal the dark secrets of Doria’s “financial wizard” husband.

As ever, Anne R. Allen weaves a unique blend of quirky characters outlandish situations and laugh-out-loud one-liners that all somehow come together and make perfect sense at the end.

No Place Like Home is the fourth of the Camilla Randall Mysteries, but can be read as a stand-alone novel.
