As Jeni explores Bulgaria with reckless abandon in search of clues, she must once again navigate the State Department’s rules that govern a diplomatic spouse. That fine line becomes even more difficult to tow when Andy lands in Sofia, tumbling from one foreign love to another as Jeni immerses herself in solving another intriguing case.
Summer in Sofia is the gripping tale of an American diplomat’s wife as she relies on her amateur sleuthing skills to dive headfirst into the deep end of an international murder mystery.
