Swimming into the lifeless body of her husband's mistress tends to ruin a woman's day but becoming a murder suspect can ruin her whole life. It's 1974 and Ellison Russell's life revolves around her daughter and her art. She's long since stopped caring about her cheating husband, Henry, and the women with whom he entertains himself. That is until she becomes a suspect in Madeline Harper's death. The murder forces Ellison to confront her husband's proclivities and his crimes: kinky sex, petty cruelties and blackmail. As the body county approaches par on the seventh hole, Ellison knows she has to catch a killer. But with an interfering mother, an adoring father, a teenage daughter and a cadre of well-meaning friends demanding her attention, can Ellison find the killer before he finds her?

Ellison determines to learn the girlfriend's identity and deliver the message, plus find the boy's killer...If that's not enough for one day, an unknown man turns up shot to death in her garden. Cozy fans will eagerly await Ellison's further adventures." - Publishers Weekly "In this excellent follow-up to her debut The Deep End, author Mulhern continues to depict the trappings of a privileged community... Readers who enjoy the novels of Susan Isaacs will love this series that blends a strong mystery with the demands of living in an exclusive society. Watching Ellison develop the strength of character to break through both her own and her society's expectations is a sheer delight." - Kings River Life Magazine "As close to a perfect summer read as mystery fans are likely to find...a well-written, entertaining mystery filled with humor and complicated family relationships...I loved every minute of it." - Goodreads Reviewer "Written sincerely, with unforgettable one-liners including: "Kizzi lived behind a curtain sewn from dry martinis." There are many more to list, but I do not want to spoil the pleasure of unexpectedly encountering such gems tucked throughout the book. Thoroughly enjoyable." - Librarian, Jefferson-Madison Regional Library System With his dying breath, Bobby Lowell begs Ellison Russell, "Tell her I love her." Unable to refuse, Ellison struggles to find the girl the murdered boy loved. Too bad an epically bad blind date, a vindictive graffiti artist, and multiple trips to the emergency room keep getting in the way. Worse, a killer has Ellison in his sights, her newly rebellious daughter is missing, and there's yet another body in her hostas. Mother won't be pleased. Now Ellison must track down not one but two runaway teenagers, keep her promise to Bobby, and elude the killer-all before her next charity gala committee meeting.

Truth is-she's an expert at calling for take-out, she grumbles about walking the dog and the dust bunnies under the bed have grown into dust lions. She is a 2014 Golden Heart(r) Finalist."

Der eingefleischte Stadtmensch Lucas Burton vermag dem idyllischen Landleben rein gar nichts abzugewinnen. Und er soll auf makabre Weise Recht behalten. Normalerweise würden ihn keine zehn Pferde zu dem verlassenen Gutshof mitten im Nichts bringen, würde dort nicht ein lukratives Geschäft locken. Doch kaum angekommen, stolpert er über die Leiche eines jungen Mädchens. Als er fluchtartig den Tatort verlässt, macht er sich verdächtig. Kein Wunder, dass er bald unerwünschten Besuch bekommt: Inspector Jessica Campbell hat den Mordfall übernommen. Es gibt nur wenig verwertbare Spuren für sie, und ihr neuer Chef, Alan Markbys Nachfolger, sitzt ihr ständig im Nacken. Der Druck ist groß. Und er wird noch größer, als man eine zweite Leiche entdeckt ...

USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR Ellison Russell wanted a decorator, not a corpse. Too bad she finds Mrs. White in the study killed with a revolver. Things go from bad to worse when she finds Mr. White in the dining room killed with a candlestick. With so many bodies, is it any wonder Detective Anarchy Jones' new partner considers Ellison a suspect? With the country club gossips talking a mile a minute, an unexpected cocktail party, a visit from Aunt Sis, and a romantic decision, Ellison hardly has time to think about murder. Unfortunately, the killer has plenty of time to think about her. "This series has become so enjoyable precisely because Ellison strives against the norms no matter how many times she is told how to behave. It is her sharp wit and humor that allows her to prevail, and attempting to teach the same to her daughter further cements her place as an admirable and extraordinarily likable heroine. As entertaining as it is for readers to romp through 1970s country club society, far more enthralling are the adventures of such a resilient and stalwart woman." - Kings River Life Magazine Related subjects include: cozy mysteries, women sleuths, murder mystery series, whodunit mysteries (whodunnit), amateur sleuth books, book club recommendations, humorous murder mysteries, historical mysteries.
