The Bohemian Murders: A Fremont Jones Mystery
Forced to leave San Francisco after the devastating earthquake and fire of 1906, Fremont Jones is finally willing to follow her heart--and her elusive suitor, Michael Archer--to the bohemian beach community of Carmel-by-the-Sea. But she finds Michael utterly changed and, apparently, otherwise engaged. Heartbroken, confused--and furious--Fremont accepts a position as temporary keeper of the Point Pi1os lighthouse, determined to carry on her typewriting business part time and nurse her wounds in solitude. Barely has she arrived, however, when the body of an unidentified woman washes up virtually at her feet, and Fremont is off on a new and ultimately life-threatening quest: to find out who the dead woman is.
Even the intrepidly unconventional Fremont learns new meanings for the term "free spirit" from the iconoclastic artists of Carmel--and new depths of love from the mysteriously tormented Michael Archer. "The Bohemian Murders" finds Fremont--still a delightful mix of fierce independence and female vulnerability--fighting off unknown attackers, battling her own demons, experiencing a new maturity in matters of the heart.
