The Devil Drinks Coffee

A Kate Saxee Mystery, Book 1

A USA Today Bestseller and 2014 RONE Award Finalist!

A cow suicide, a revolving door rescue, and the birth of a bright purple pig are all current events starting to make Kate Saxee wonder if taking a job in her small hometown of Branson Falls, Utah, was such a great idea. As The Branson Tribune newspaper editor, Kate covers all the local news, which, more often than not, involves her accident-prone mom. Nothing truly newsworthy has ever happened in the quiet, religious town, until Chelsea Bradford, a Branson Falls teenager, disappears and turns up dead in a local lake.

The police rule Chelsea’s death an accident, but Kate suspects there’s more to the story. She starts investigating and soon three of Branson’s most eligible bachelors show up, determined to help her—one way or another. But the small town social network is faster than Twitter, and gossip about her love-life is quickly turning Kate into the Branson Falls hussy.

As Kate learns more about Chelsea, she discovers that plenty of people are trying to cover up the real story behind her disappearance and death, including Chelsea's parents. Now Kate has to juggle her work at the Tribune, the men in her life, her mom’s most recent disaster (a low-speed John Deere Combine chase on the freeway), and fend off the Mormons who are heaven-bent on converting her—all while solving Chelsea’s murder.
