Penny Goetjen - Murder Returns to the Precipice


When murder checks in, the quaint New England inn's dark past resurfaces.

Join national award-winning mystery author Penny Goetjen as she shares her newest release, set on the coast of Maine.

Returning to her roots on the rocky, tumultuous coast of Maine with her love interest Kurt Mitchell, Elizabeth Pennington reopens her family’s historic inn, which she lovingly restored to its New England charm after a powerful hurricane nearly destroyed it. Unseen forces, however, seem hell-bent on derailing her efforts, or worse—taking her out of the picture.

The untimely death of a young female guest in the inn’s fitness center appears to be a tragic accident until authorities investigate and find there is more than meets the eye.

When a second body is discovered, Elizabeth fears the worst—a killer in their midst. Has the inn’s dark past resurfaced? Has Kurt’s past as an FBI agent followed him to Pennington Point? Are the guests in danger?

Feeling the strain from a mountain of debt and the pressure to carry on in her grandmother’s footsteps as keeper of a popular inn, Elizabeth is crushed when the town begins foreclosure proceedings. On the brink of losing her childhood home, Elizabeth endeavors to remain steadfast in her quest to carry on her grandmother’s legacy—until the killer comes after her

Penny Goetjen is the author of murder mysteries where the milieu play as prominent a role as the engaging characters. Her love of travel inspires her writing as evidenced by her current titles. Although Connecticut has been her home longer than anywhere else, she also has a deep-rooted fondness for the Caribbean; Charleston, South Carolina; and the tumultuous coast of Maine (especially in the warmer months). A self-proclaimed eccentric, she loves writing by candlelight, particularly on dark, gray days or in the late hours of the night. Fascinated with the paranormal, she often weaves a subtle, unexpected twist into her stories. When her husband is asked how he feels about his wife writing murder mysteries, he answers with a wink, “I sleep with one eye open.”
