A New York Times Notable Book!

Stella Hardesty, avenger of wronged women, is getting cozy with Sheriff "Goat" Jones when a tornado blows none other than Goat's scheming ex-wife, Brandy, through the front door. Adding to the chaos, the tornado destroys the snack shack at the demolition derby track, pulling up the concrete and unearthing a woman's body. The main suspect for the dumping is Neb Donovan. Years ago, Neb's wife asked Stella for help getting him sober. Stella doesn't believe the gentle man could kill any woman, and she promises his frantic wife she'll look into it. Former client Chrissy Shaw, now fully employed at Stella's sewing shop, helps with snooping around as Stella must negotiate with the unpredictable Brandy and the dangerously alluring sheriff.

This is the thrilling sequel to Sophie Littlefield's award-winning debut featuring Stella Hardesty, one of the most applauded and exciting new heroines in crime fiction today.

    " When a tornado hits the little town of Prosper, MO, it upends the snack shop on the fairgrounds, and a buried body is found beneath them. Neb Donovan helped build the snack shop, and is the main suspect in the burial. Stella Hardesty, whose main business is helping abused wives (she was one herself), had helped Neb's wife Donna free him from a fundamentalist cult, and promises that she'll help again. True, Stella'd rather get some abuser to see the light, using a variety of tools, but she can certainly help the attractive sheriff solve this crime. Unfortunately for her other plans about the sheriff, his trashy almost ex-wife has ust arrived in town, and doesn't want Stella's interference. "
