There's nothing like manslaughter to put the brakes on a relationship....
Boredom isn't an occupational hazard for Hannah Garvey, the resident manager for Valhalla Springs, an exclusive retirement community in the Missouri Ozarks. In less than twenty-four hours she's survived an assault with a deadly weapon, been caught in a compromising position with Sheriff David Hendrickson and consoled her boss's sixty-seven-year-old mother--who's just been busted for growing marijuana for the members of her bi-weekly bridge club.
Not bad for a Wednesday!
But before the week's end, things have really gotten out of hand. Sheriff Hendrickson is suspended and facing a manslaughter charge. With the evidence and public opinion stacked against him, David is losing all hope. But Hannah and her gang of senior sleuths are determined to clear his name--before her someday-maybe lover is sent upstate without a paddle for a crime he didn't commit.
