An unwelcome visitor, an unrequited love, and a dead body create chaos in a middle-aged woman’s plan for a productive summer.

Despite a looming divorce, an empty checkbook, and a struggling cleaning business, Cece Cavanaugh is determined to land on her own two feet. Adamant about staying a safe distance from the handsome detective who has her fantasizing about violating the morals clause in her prenuptial agreement, Cece dives headlong into her work.

Even though she has no free time to spare, Cece finds herself guilted into cleaning a hoarder’s home. Her discoveries in the condemned house are too shocking to ignore. Diamond-laden pachyderms, a secret cache of money, and a dead body lure Cece into launching an investigation that places her in direct contact with the one person she’s desperate to avoid--hunky Detective Case Alder.

With clues in hand, Cece runs down leads and eliminates suspects one by one. Her conclusion and brave accusation put a friend’s life in peril forcing Cece to hatch a plan to outsmart the killer. A daring move could either save Cece and her friend or lead to their demise.

About the Author

Tricia L. Sanders writes cozy mysteries and women’s fiction. She adds a dash of romance and a sprinkling of snark to raise the stakes. Her heroines are humorous women embarking on journeys of self-discovery all the while doing so with class, sass, and a touch of kickass. Tricia is an avid St. Louis Cardinals fan, so don't get between her and the television when a game is on. Currently, she is working on a mystery series set in the fictional town of Wickford, Missouri. Another project in the works is a women's fiction road trip adventure. A former instructional designer and corporate trainer, she traded in curriculum writing for novel writing, because she hates bullet points and loves to make stuff up. And fiction is more fun than training guides and lesson plans.

by Tricia L. Sanders

An utterly delightful and homey cozy mystery set in Missouri, this is the second in the Grime Pays Series. Poor CeeCee Cavanaugh is still reeling but trying to overcome following her discovery of her cheating spouse and his cleaning out of their finances. Phillip is still intermittently hanging around, probably to avoid paying spousal support while the divorce is in process; and CeeCee's Dragon Lady mother-in-law (she calls her Witch Hazel, with good reason) is still disparaging CeeCee at every opportunity, real or perceived. Detective Case Alder, as well as being a talented investigator, has his eye on CeeCee, as does her boss Grant Hunter, a developer. But CeeCee at forty-eight is determined to “make it on her own” as an independent individual, and to grow her new cleaning business. Yes, she got her start cleaning up a crime scene (and was abducted and nearly became a fatality in the process), but she's skilled at it (and it drives her mother-in-law batty); so she's not giving in to dependence on any man. What she is also skilled at is amateur investigation, and is there plenty of need for it in this novel!
