Stella Hardesty, our salty, unlikely heroine, runs a sewing shop in rural Missouri. She also has a side business helping battered women with their abusive boyfriends and husbands. When Chrissy Shaw askes Stella for help, it seems like a straightforward case, until Chrissy’s no-good husband disappears with her two-year-old son. Now Stella finds herself in a battle against a more formidable enemy as she risks her own life to recover the boy.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Amanda | 1/26/2014

    " GO READ THIS BOOK. It is awesome. A battered wife who turned the tables on her husband now runs a sewing store and helps keep other abused women safe. One of the women she has helped reports that her abuser has disappeared with her baby, so Stella starts investigating. You don't want to get on Stella's bad side, because she doesn't take any crap off ANYONE. I enjoyed the strong women, both young and old in A Bad Day for Sorry, as well as the sparks flying between Stella and Goat. "

    " I really wanted to like this book, but I'm actually glad that it's due back at the library today without having finished it. The whole time I was reading it I felt that the author was just trying too hard. I think it might be a good book for some, but it wasn't my style and I just never got into it. And I really wanted to.
