About Andorra Pett and the Oort Cloud Café
Andorra Pett has left her old life behind. But has she only swapped one set of problems for another?
Andorra's on the rebound. Her only thought is to get a world away from her cheating ex. With her best friend Cy in tow, she invests her meagre savings in a run-down cafe. Never mind that it’s on a space station orbiting Saturn, or that Andorra is accident-prone and can't make toast without a recipe and a video. Surely running a cafe can’t be that hard, right?
Unfortunately, her dreams of a quiet life are not to be, she's bought into a mystery, trouble is just around the corner.
When the body of the previous owner is found in the freezer, Andorra’s plans hit some turbulence. She quickly finds that the dead man had enough information about the darker side of station life to embarrass a lot of people, they all want to know what he knew. And she’s in the way.
Andorra needs to find out where he’s hidden his book of secrets. Before anyone else does.
One of local residents must know more than they are letting on. As the body count begins to rise, can Andorra turn her luck around in time to catch the murderer before they strike again?
After all, she might be the next victim.
The answer to this cozy mystery is out of this world!
