Stella Hardesty returns after her adventures in "A Bad Day for Sorry."

She had been abused by her husband for years and ended the abuse and her husband, Ollie's life. How, she helps other women got out of abusive situations.

She's having dinner at Sheriff "Goat" Jones' home. The two of them have been building a more physical relationship and just as things are getting warmer, the Sheriff's scheming, ex-wife, Brandy, arrives.

Brandy hasn't seen Goat in three years and each claims that the other never got around to signing the divorce papers so they're still legally married.

As this is transpiring, a tornado rips through town and blows over the snack bar at the demolition derby track at the fair grounds. Underneath the rubble, a mummified body of a woman is found.

Neb Donovan had been in charge of the stand construction and he becomes the leading suspect. His wife, Donna, hires Stella to look into things and clear Neb's name. Donna had asked Stella to intervene in the past when Neb had been addicted to Oxycontin. It appeared that Neb's recovery had gone well, until now.

This is another entertaining novel from Sophie Littlefield. There are some laugh out loud moments and the author keeps the reader's attention as layers of the puzzle are peeled away and a possible solution is found.

It is refreshing to see a female protagonist who won't accept abusive behavior and Sara and her new associate, Chrissy, show they have the strength to take matters into their own hands.

The theme seems to be never to underestimate the ability of a foe.

Great fun.
