HR Can Be Murder
by Melanie Peacock

Tasha Martin has recently graduated from her local college and takes an HR job at a law firm in the city, leaving the comfort of her childhood home to embark on her adult life. A self avowed introvert, this brings about challenges as she interacts with new colleagues and faces difficulties, causing her to question her abilities. Just as she is also adjusting to life in her new apartment and meeting her neighbours—alas, more people . . . and a Corgi—she learns that one of her coworkers has suffered a fatal accident at the office, which is later revealed to have been murder. As events unfold, and with the help of her inquisitive nature and attention to detail, Tasha begins to piece together the mystery of who killed her workplace friend, placing her own life in danger. Along the way, she goes on a journey of self-discovery, leading her to understand the value of friends, family, and even love - with someone she least expects.
