The three short stories and a novella that comprise The Valentine Veilleux Mysteries feature professional photographer Valentine Veilleux as an amateur sleuth. Val first appeared in Kaitlyn Dunnett's ninth Liss MacCrimmon Mystery, The Scottie Barked at Midnight, and reappeared in the second book (Clause & Effect) of her "Deadly Edits" Mysteries. She specializes in creating calendars for organizations to use for fundraising purposes. She is a free spirit who travels the country in a RV custom-designed to serve as both home and workplace and has a three-legged cat, Lucky, as her sidekick. In the course of each job she takes on, she becomes involved with a group of people who know each other and often share dark secrets. When a member of such a group is murdered, Val has the advantage of an outsider's perspective combined with an insider's knowledge of the suspects and her photographs often provide clues the police have missed.
