After her philandering husband died and left her penniless in
Prohibition-era New York, Lola Woodby escaped with her Swedish
cook to the only place she could—her deceased husband’s secret
love nest in the middle of Manhattan. Her only comforts were
chocolate cake, dime store detective novels, and the occasional
highball (okay, maybe not so occasional). But rent came due and
Lola and Berta were forced to accept the first job that came
their way, leading them to set up shop as private detectives
operating out of Alfie’s cramped love nest.
Now Lola and Berta are in danger of losing the business they’ve
barely gotten off the ground—work is sparse and money is
running out. So when a society matron offers them a job, they
take it—even if it means sneaking into a slimming and exercise
facility and consuming only water and health food until they
can steal a diary from Grace Whiddle, a resident at the “health
farm.” But barely a day in, Grace and her diary escape from the
facility—and Grace’s future mother-in-law is found murdered on
the premises. Lola and Berta are promptly fired. But before
they can climb into Lola’s brown and white Duesenberg Model A
and whiz off the health farm property, they find themselves
with a new client and a new charge: to solve the murder of
Grace’s future mother-in-law.
Teetotaled, Maia Chance's sparkling new installment in the
Discreet Retrieval Agency Mysteries will delight readers with
its clever plotting, larger-than-life characters, and rich
