Death Can Be Murder(2011)
(The first book in the Wild Women Mystery series)
A novel by Paulette Callen
This is an American cozy, with dogs. Sally Kelleher, a grumpy heroine, and her four irrepressible baby-boomer friends are vacationing together in Sally's small Midwestern hometown. Her elderly mentor has just died and Sally believes the death was no accident. She is attracted to a younger man who is also the chief suspect, somebody is trying to kill her and she is nearing menopause. Who wouldn't be grumpy? Things are never what they seem in a small prairie town, where long suppressed rage erupts and kills. If Sally and her coterie of indomitable women do not discover the murderer, she will be the next victim. If you like feisty women, interesting dogs, and a unique place, you will like this book.
