Trixie's ex-husband cheated she is not interested in Ty, he may be good looking, has a cute dimple, knows how to wear a pair of jeans and cowboy hat but no Trixie hasn't noticed.

Anyway when threats start happening, shady business deals, murders and eccentric characters chime in to this week Trixie thinks what more could go wrong? As it turns out plenty could and does go wrong.

This is a very entertaining series and the characters will make you die of love an laughter. I will read the series as long as Christine Wenger writes it. I give this book eight out of ten.
