“Portland’s beloved food carts provide a tantalizing backdrop for a new cozy mystery…Using a food cart pod as the setting for the story is a creative way to address both the quirkiness and the more dismaying aspects of life in contemporary Portland.”
The Sunday Oregonian
With its entrepreneurial, 20-something protagonist, focus on a hipster-run food truck pod in Portland, Oregon, and real-world issues involving homelessness and gentrification, this second Ground Rules Mystery is a modern, fresh-voiced, and witty cozy featuring a sleuth who can make a perfect cup of coffee!
Kelly is happy to announce her hipster Portland mystery, Fresh Ground Murder, the first in her Ground Rules series, will come out March 30, 2021 from Kensington. This series is coming out under the name Emmeline Duncan.
Kelly Garrett’s debut YA Mystery, The Last To Die, was an Oregon Book awards finalist. When not writing, Kelly spends her time hiking with her Great Pyrenees-mix and seeking out new coffee shops. After growing up in a small town on the Oregon Coast, Kelly now calls Portland home, where she organizes several literary-related series.
