NURSING A GRUDGE: Hometown Mysteries

Nursing a Grudge (Hometown Mysteries)Coming July, my cozy mystery whodunit Nursing a Grudge will be the first in a brand-new campaign from Barbour Publishing under the banner "Hometown Mysteries." The first wave includes six authors, one title a month through the end of the year. (God willing, my second book in the series will be available January 2011.)

About the book:

Nursing a Grudge (Barbour Books) ISBN 9781602603448

For twenty-five years, EARL WALKER has been defined by the two worst things that ever happened to him: The death of his beloved wife, and the bullet that ended his career as a metro bus driver. Now bound to a wheelchair, he lives at Candlewick Retirement Center ... where he barely knows the neighbors. Not that it matters: Following a failed state inspection, residents have 30 days to get out.

When he's dragged from his assisted-living apartment to a clandestine spicy hot chili party, he almost has fun ... until someone ends up dead. Now Earl's the only one suspicious of the way the partygoer met his demise. Can he solve the puzzle—and figure out his relationship with his new lady friend—before Candlewick is closed down and the suspects move away?
