Murder in Boothbay Harbor
Join national award-winning author, Penny Goetjen, to hear her share her engaging murder mysteries set on the coast of Maine and inspired by a childhood of glorious summers visiting her grandmother.
In Murder On The Precipice, Manhattan interior designer Elizabeth Pennington returns to her childhood home, a quaint New England inn still run by her grandmother, to find a young female guest is missing in a case eerily similar to an unsolved disappearance years earlier when the property was used as an all-girls school….
Set in Boothbay Harbor, Murder Beyond The Precipice is the story of the Livingston family who is no stranger to tragedy. Losing both parents at a young age in what authorities ruled an accident, Lucretia Livingston, the sole heir to the estate, is left to pick up the pieces. But many locals question the circumstances surrounding their deaths and if the family’s wealth was an irresistibly seductive motive for crossing the line.
