A murdered art dealer. A missing love-child. Can Michele close the book on her neighbor’s mysterious past before a killer sets his sights on her?

 

With her kids away for the summer, widow Michele Lopez Hanson struggles with her newfound solitude. When her unmarried retired neighbor Gidget asks her to document her career in the art world, she’s eager for the company… and the advice on coping with an empty nest. But their trek down memory lane turns into a missing person search when Gidget dies and leaves behind a will that tasks Michele with finding her long-lost love child.

 

Before the casket lid closes, she feels a wave of sympathy for the endless stream of mourners from Gidget's days as a high-powered art dealer. But when she learns the murderous truth behind Gidget’s death and she's named the prime suspect, Michele realizes any one of the grieving artists and collectors could be the love child's mystery father or her neighbor's killer. To complete the memoir and clear her name, Michele must discover the ugly motives behind the picture-perfect murder before she joins her friend six-feet-under.

 

Fighting for Anna is the second standalone book in Michele's trilogy within the What Doesn’t Kill You romantic mystery series. If you like spirited amateur sleuths, high-society scandals, and plot twists that will keep you guessing, then you’ll love Pamela Fagan Hutchins’ award-winning series.

"Just when I think I couldn't love another Pamela Fagan Hutchins novel more, along comes Ava. She's smart and sassy, with a story full of juicy plot twists. I enjoyed Bombshell from cover to cover!" — Marcy McKay, author of Pennies from Burger Heaven 

"To finally get a whole book of Ava's beautiful voice and attitude was so much fun. And then to see that her outer armor was mixed with the very real insecurities and struggles that we can all relate to was magical. She personifies bombshell in every sense of word and I can't wait to have her voice in my head again in Stunner." — Tara Scheyer, Grammy-nominated musician, Long-Distance Sisters Book Club 

"Entertaining, complex, and thought-provoking. Each book gets better and better and better (with a) more intricate and complex storyline. [The What Doesn’t Kill You world] started out great, but [Pamela] outdid herself on this one. I am anxiously anticipating the next book about Ava. It was so hard to put this book down once I started reading." — Ginger Copeland, power reader
