A Fistful of Death

If Agatha Christie’s Miss Jane Marple warped into the Twenty-first Century, she could be Adelaide Bonner Girard, Mom Extraordinaire and woman suddenly on her own. Addie Girard has a knack for finding herself in the wrong place at an unfortunately right time, hustling to deal with the issues of singledom. But what to do about the body on the floor?

Friends in Wanderwood, TX, and her grown children are swept into the swirl of events while Addie strives to discover the joys of a new life as a widow in charge of many decisions. So many options and so little time to explore them—and a dead body on the floor—lead Addie’s life down paths that she never foresaw but now embraces as a part of her new adventure. Wanderwood, TX, isn’t St. Mary Meade, but the similarities and conflicts of small-town life are there. If only there weren’t that dead body on the floor!
