Mystery Woman Sleuth | Mystery

Aggie Sloan Wilcox likes to practice what her minister husband preaches—to a point. But babysitting a narcissistic "star" demands the patience of a saint, and Aggie isn't bucking for a halo.

Actor and singer Grady Barber has returned to his hometown to judge the Emerald Springs Idyll, a talent show to help raise funds for the local hospital. As the newest volunteer on the fund-raising committee, Aggie is assigned the unenviable task of ensuring that Grady's needs are met. Unfortunately, Grady's needs are legion, as are the enemies he makes.

When Aggie stumbles upon his dead body, she isn't terribly surprised. But when "Sister" Nora, of a controversial circus that preaches the dangers of global warming, turns out to be Grady's ex-wife, she is surprised. And when Nora is arrested for his murder, more than Aggie's patience is tried. She must use every skill to clear the name of the unlikely prophet, before Nora spends her final days preaching on death row.

Re: A Lie For A Lie

Catchy title! Love that you got rid of a reality show judge.

Hey - whether you're killing off (deserving) people, or mending family hurts, you are the best!!

Thanks for all the enjoyment you have given me thru the years.

Thanks to you all. So glad you approved of my victim and my writing. I'm on my way to Guatemala, and now I'm leaving with a smile. Best to everybody!

While it is true some people need to be killed ,it always entertaining HOW an author kills...

I can see why you like to return to
"your town and characters". You
spend a lot of time and effort to create
them. Who would want to leave them
after just one story. As a reader,it is
enjoyable to revisit your characters.
We hate to leave them after one story
and thank you for keeping them
around.

love everything you write.
p.s Aggie's the best
