An Amazon #1 Bestselling Historical Mystery and winner of 5 Literary Awards, including the 2012 Reviewer’s Choice 2012 Award!

In a story that’s been compared to John Grisham’s The Client, eleven year- old Ethan Allen Doyle has witnessed a brutal murder and now the boy is running for his life. In the time-tested tradition of Southern Fiction, Crosby unveils the darkest side of human nature and then rewards her readers with this beautiful tale of love, loss and unexpected gifts.

Olivia Westerly is the only person Ethan Allen can trust, and he’s not too sure he can trust her. She’s got no love of children and a truckload of superstitions—one of them is the belief that eleven is the unluckiest number on earth.

Spare Change is a quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about the important things in life, the adventures of a young boy and a late change of heart that makes all the difference in an unusually independent woman. More than anything, it is a heartwarming book which is simultaneously intriguing and just plain fun. Seattle Post Intelligence

Like a moth to a flame…Crosby deftly brings out Southern culture through the narrative voice and her use of language and imagery...reminiscent of John Grisham’s The Client, with boy who is the only witness to his parent’s murder. The Uncustomary Book Review

Love, loss and unexpected gifts…Told from multiple points of view, this tale seeped from the pages and wrapped itself around my heart. The Caffeinated Book Review

Heartwarming story about a strong woman who learns life’s greatest joys often come in the form of the very thing we reject. Book Pleasures

Rapidly Unraveling Mystery, enjoyable storyline, lively dialogue. Every Character is well-defined and believable. Reader Views

Bette Lee Crosby has the unique ability to write characters that will absolutely melt your heart...A Book and A Review

Fantastic characters and story flow… Even though this was a murder mystery, it was an emotional story filled with romance and friendship. Looking for more books by this author. Hollis Bookshelf

A Feel-Good Must Read…The way Spare Change is written is so totally engrossing it was hard to put down. Turn your phone off; get yourself a big cup of hot chocolate, a soft comfy blanket and an overstuffed chair. I absolutely recommend this one. So, what are you waiting for? Michele Kerr, Goodreads reviewer
