CAMILLE TATE HAS FINALLY FOUND HER STRIDE......but is it all an illusion? Just when life should finally be settling down for Cam, new challenges arrive to knock her off balance again. Lisa Cannon has returned after being off island all winter, and Cam is both excited to be her new personal assistant, and nervous about showing her the play she's written. But Lisa's return is accompanied by much more trouble than that. JoJo Brixton, that charming rascal, is back, and determined to win Cam's forgiveness with his usual blend of humor, insouciance, and charm. Then there's Colin, who has had just about enough of the friend zone. Kevin and his Intruder, Paige Berry and her air of mystery, pets, raccoons and play revisions add plenty of chaos too. But then a stranger comes prowling, a friend falls deathly ill, and Cam finds herself embroiled in Orcas intrigue again. When Cam and her friend Jen in deep to resolve all these mysteries, both the law and other more shadowy figures go to surprising lengths to keep these "amateurs" out of their business, and away from the truth. Praise for The Chameleon Chronicles:
"A delightful and atmospheric adventure set on picturesque Orcas Island, full of boats and romance and theatre people and drinking chocolate and a vulnerable but determined heroine you instantly root for. The rain-lashed small-town setting is so real I want to step right into it."
--Tina Connolly, Nebula-nominated author of Ironskin "If the strange, haunting setting of Orcas Island doesn't drag you under, the introduction to a main character as relatable and smart as she is strange will surely keep you turning pages to find out what will be revealed on the next pages. Orcas Intrigue is a unique, fast-paced, eerie mystery set at what feels like the edge of the world...and it will keep you on the edge of your seat."
--USA Today bestselling author Lyla Payne "Orcas Intrigue is one of those rare cozy mysteries where the landscape-beautiful and compelling-is as much a character as any of the interesting people that inhabit it. Laura Gayle presents Cam as a sympathetic heroine with a real and unusual problem. While reading I needed to know how she was going to learn to deal with that problem so she could get on with her life. I sincerely hope a second volume is in the offing."
--Irene Radford, author of Whistling River Resort Mysteries "A delicious, complext broth of questions, comforts-and deaths."
--Chaz Brenchley, award-winning author of Bitter Waters "Mystery and a touch of magic in the gorgeous Pacific Northwest-chef's kiss!"
--Sherwood Smith, author of Crown Duel
