Tori Cannon and her grandfather, Herb, return from her grandmother's funeral. With sadness, she learns that the bait shop and small motel her grandparents ran has fallen on hard times.
Jammed into one of the motel's units is the body of one of Herb's customers, his mouth filled with spikes. The victim had no enemies, except for maybe the rich woman who wanted to level his eyesore of a home. But he also had a daughter, who resents that her father wasn't a major force in her life, and some friends who were anything but friends.
Tori's friend, Kathy, arrives to help spruce up the property, and the two find themselves mixed up in the petty jealousies and deadly consequences that murder entails. Can they save the bait shop and find a murderer or will they, too, sleep with the fishes?
With Baited Breath comes with the short story "Panty Raid", a Tori Cannon-Kathy Grant minimystery. Tori Cannon and her BFF, Kathy Grant, get together for a girl's weekend of wine, cookies, and laughter, but there's also the specter of a panty pincher hanging around the laundry room of the complex where Tori lives. Kathy thinks they can catch the culprit red-handed in a panty raid!
