Vivian Wainwright is intrigued by the mysterious murder of a beachcomber, which tugs at her curiosity until she learns how a Big Ben replica is involved.

While Vivian works to put the pieces together, Detective Messina follows his own clues to catch the killer.

The plot picks up immediately with the murder of the beachcomber, creating this automatic curiosity about what happened. Right from the start, this murder haunts Vivian to the point that she can’t resist wanting to dig into the man’s death. This drive of curiosity is at the root of her character and what sends her on this search for a mysterious replica. Vivian has the personality of a classic sleuth with her cleverness, curious nature, and determination. Her attitude pairs well with the tearoom in the background and adds an elegant touch to the tone. Kingsbury brilliantly weaves various threads that turn In Too Steep into a charming mystery that blends sleuthing, murder, and a jewelry heist for an addicting read that is hard to put down.
