Here’s a description of the novel, the first in the Caviston Sisters Mystery series:
A full red moon rises over a wedding at a Finger Lakes winery as fireworks explode unexpectedly above the celebration. Was it a timing accident, or were they set off early on purpose to cover up the murder of ’80s rock star Jeremiah Redfern nearby?
Across Keuka Lake, the Caviston sisters watch the show from their deck on a warm June evening, unaware of how their lives will soon become entwined in the unfolding mystery. Curiosity about a Seneca Indian curse draws them deep into the investigation before they realize their own lives may be endangered as they help Detective Tyrone Kane decipher motives tangled tighter than a grapevine.
The Curse of the Strawberry Moon‘s riveting plot delves intimately into the Finger Lakes wine industry with a touch of rock-and-roll attitude.

What Amazon readers are saying about my sixth and most popular novel (4.7/5 stars):
- “This book captured my heart from the very first chapter! Not only does it convey the spirit and beauty of New York’s Keuka Lake, it filled me with genuine caring for its characters.”
- “This was one of the best novels I’ve read in a very long time! One of those books that I had to read in one sitting and it was well worth staying up most of the night for.”
- ” The heart of this story is family and the complex relationships within it. By using smooth prose, each character comes alive and the reader becomes engrossed in their quest for their own identity. I found this to be a heartwarming story and well worth reading.”
