Excerpt: Chapter One

PRODUCT SUMMARY

With the class bully murdered at her 30th high school reunion and her boss, the annoying Michael Steele, missing, Odelia doesn't know which hole to poke her big nose into first. This decision is made for her as she's again swept into the action involving contract killers, tangled relationships, and fatal buyer's remorse. Throughout this adventure, Odelia deals with her on-again, off-again relationship with Greg and her attraction to detective Devon Frye.

Praise:

Starred Review"The best title yet in a priceless series...a real treat for chick-lit and mystery fans who like feisty women."—Library Journal(starred review)

"Odelia Grey is delightfully large and in charge in Jaffarian's third entertaining romp (after 2003's The Curse of the Holy Pail)."—Publishers Weekly

"The best one yet...an intriguing, well-plotted mystery that will entertain and inspire."—The Strand Magazine

"Snappy dialogue."—Kirkus Reviews
