From USA Today bestselling author Kerri Nelson...

They say hard work never killed anyone, but this may be the exception...

Reluctant med-school drop-out Mandy Murrin has a new job and a new mission. She will find a way to have a social life in small town Alabama if it kills her. After all, she deserves a little fun after surviving the daily grind as a blue collar working stiff. And she has plenty of time for dating after putting in glamorous shifts as a tow truck operator, earning extra cash as lab technician at B Positive Clinic, and being a caretaker to her younger sister with special needs.

Okay, maybe not "plenty," but she is more than ready to find a good man. Only, the man she finds just happens to be dead and in the trunk of a car.

When an old friend asks for her help, Mandy knows she must make a dent in solving this puzzle before the killer retires another victim. But will she get to the bottom of it before the culprit can cover his tracks, or will she reach a dead-end of her very own?

Book 3
From USA Today bestselling author Kerri Nelson, comes the latest mystery that proves working for a living may just be the death of one small town girl...

 

Autumn has settled over the small town of Millbrook, and Jill-of-all-trades and sometimes-sleuth Mandy Murrin’s life is more disorganized than ever! Mandy finds herself juggling three jobs to pay for a new school for her special needs sister, including a temp job as a plumber’s assistant for Godfather’s Plumbing—a local company rumored to be "family" run.

 

Then things go from bad to worse as the town’s prized pig dies mysteriously right before the big annual Cotton Festival, Mandy's mentor is hospitalized, and Mandy is swept into the middle of a real life mob family crisis. Add in being a reluctant bridesmaid in a friend’s wedding, and Mandy has more on her schedule than one girl can handle. If all that’s not enough, Mandy's boyfriend leaves town without a word, and two men from her past make major decisions of their own that may affect Mandy forever. 

 

One weekend. Two days ‘til the wedding. Three men in her life. Will Mandy survive until Monday or will this be the end of her?
