When thieves steal an infamous pirate’s ruby amulet from Osprey Beach’s new Pirate Museum, they leave behind a shattered display case and a dead busybody. Kim’s long-time friend, the museum’s director, quickly tops the suspect list.

Armed only with her standard poodle and her expertise in gemstone lore, Kim sets out to clear her friend’s name and unravel the mystery of a ruby with a deadly past. As she delves deeper, she must confront the bully from her childhood, dodge treasure hunters, and navigate small-town politics.

When a child disappears during a hurricane, Kim races to save her before the killer strikes again.

Written by an award-winning author, The Pirate’s Ruby weaves together ruby legend and lore into a fast-paced whodunit with a feisty heroine, charming characters and humor.
