You will love Paula Matter's delightful debut mystery. Her misfit heroine will win your heart and keep you guessing with her determined efforts to find the truth and clear her name. --Victoria Thompson, Bestselling author of Murder on Union SquareA bartender at a Florida VFW has to clear her name or she'll be serving time instead of drinks

Bartender Maggie Lewis can't hold her beer, her tongue, or her temper. On a bad day at work she'd love to kill a customer or two. On a very bad day she becomes the primary suspect accused of doing just that.

Suspended from her job after being set up for the murder of Korean war veteran Jack Hoffman, Maggie has no intention of letting herself be framed. And since the police have yet to arrest anybody for the last major crime in town--the murder of Maggie's husband--she's sure they won't try too hard to collar the real culprit. So Maggie must produce enough evidence to clear her name, get her job back, and find the killer before she ends up behind the wrong kind of bars.
