A BAD DAY FOR SORRY
Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Suspense
Expect the unexpected with Stella Hardesty, who's quite the intriguing character. She's 5-foot-6, overweight and out of shape. Since her 50th birthday has come and gone, menopause has kicked in as well, which doesn't help matters any. From Stella's opening remark, "Whuppin' ass wasn't so hard. What was hard was making it stay whupped," the reader can't help but be drawn into her world and wonder where it all will lead.
Stella, who runs a sewing shop in Missouri, also helps battered women get rid of their abusive significant others. And lately it's been taking up a significant amount of her free time. When a young woman asks for help, Stella thinks her case will be pretty straightforward. But when the woman's husband disappears with her 2-year-old son, Stella is in a dogfight, trying not only to save the little boy's life but her own too. (MINOTAUR, Aug., 288 pp., $24.95)
