“A cozy shop, a tricky murder, geek humor, and gaming lore galore―what’s not to love in No Saving Throw? This book is a winner” (Leigh Perry, author of The Family Skeleton Mysteries).
Autumn Sinclair has everything she could possibly want: Loving friends, a successful business, and a gaggle of gamers in her store every day.
Welcome to Ten Again, a tabletop gaming store that attracts nerds of every kind and fosters a community Autumn’s pretty proud of—a community that also keeps business afloat. And now that she’s in the running for a grant, Ten Again’s future is looking bright.
That is, until one of Autumn’s gamers is mysteriously murdered. With everyone in the mall as a suspect and accusations flying, Autumn is going to have to do some sleuthing of her own to save her shop and her gamers from a fate more dangerous than having no saving throw.
“A nat 20! No Saving Throw is a fun, tight mystery that perfectly encapsulates the difficulties gamers face at being taken seriously. Protagonist Autumn Sinclair will stop at nothing to save not only her store, but also the geeky community it fosters.” —Alex Erickson, author of the Bookstore Café Mysteries
“Enjoyable debut . . . Readers will hope to see a lot more of the plucky Autumn.” —Publishers Weekly
