After returning to Penticton, a mystery writer set her latest novel in the Okanagan Valley.

Lynda L. Lock spent 12 years living near Cancun, Mexico, she said in an email, which exposed her to real hackers, murders, political scandals, police corruption and hurricanes.

While living in Mexico, she wrote a six-book series titled Isla Mujeres Mysteries which encompasses all of these themes.

Lock returned to Penticton in 2020 and earlier this year she wrote Clogged, Death in the vines as a fallout from the Mysteries of Isla Mujeres.

She said her new book focuses on murder, chaos, revenge and romance – and features two themes close to her heart: Canada and wine.

Clogged, Death in the vines can be purchased at Ruby Blues Vineyard in Penticton or online via Amazon, and the Penticton Public Library has Lock’s seven novels.
