Publisher's Summary

A New York Times Notable Book!

Stella Hardesty, avenger of wronged women, is getting cozy with Sheriff “Goat” Jones when a tornado blows none other than Goat’s scheming ex-wife, Brandy, through the front door. Adding to the chaos, the tornado destroys the snack shack at the demolition derby track, pulling up the concrete and unearthing a woman’s body. The main suspect for the dumping is Neb Donovan. Years ago, Neb’s wife asked Stella for help getting him sober. Stella doesn’t believe the gentle man could kill any woman, and she promises his frantic wife she’ll look into it. Former client Chrissy Shaw, now fully employed at Stella’s sewing shop, helps with snooping around as Stella must negotiate with the unpredictable Brandy and the dangerously alluring sheriff.

This is the thrilling sequel to Sophie Littlefield’s award-winning debut featuring Stella Hardesty, one of the most applauded and exciting new heroines in crime fiction today.

    "LOVE THAT STELLA HARDESTY!!!"

    This second installment in the Stella Hardesty - middleaged mama mystery series is another winner as far as I'm concerned. Though it did not move the side story of Stella and Sheriff Goat Jones along as satisfyingly as I would have liked it still kept me interested and enthralled throughout the book. She (Stella) is one tough lady and can handle most anything with her usual "I aint gonna take no sh... from nobody" attitude and her Ozark mountain brand of wisdom. She's a real treat! I have already bought and listened to the 3rd book in the series (another success) but all I have to say to Sophie Littlefied is "Keep 'em coming!!!"
