I met LS Hawker at a conference and discovered we shared the same editor. Unsurprisingly, we also instantly liked each other. This book is like her—sassy, irreverent, tough, honest. Or, like what I think she might be if she were trained as a killer and thrown into a mystery. My currently-reading pile is one book shorter, but another of hers will be in it soon enough!

“The house felt too tight, as if there weren‘t enough air for all these people.”
All those red dots are closures because it makes more sense to shut Houston down a day or two every year than buy and warehouse a crapton of winter weather equipment. My house does NOT feel too tight. Book, blankie, coffee...I‘m set for the day.

RaimeyGallant Wow about the red dots! And welcome to Litsy! #LitsyWelcomeWagon Some of us put together Litsy tips to help new Littens navigate the site. It's the link in my bio on my page in case you're interested. :) 2y
MargoCatts @RaimeyGallant Thank you! I‘m still trolling around trying to figure Litsy out, so this will help! 2y

MargoCatts @APLitlife Seriously? How did this huge community where I don‘t know anybody and am just getting started suddenly get this small?!? Hey neighbor! 2y

MargoCatts @DebinHawaii Thank you! I loved your watermelon shake recipe so much I tried to figure out a way to have it at a book event but...not for making ahead, unfortunately. And I‘m loving Litsy. Giving it a little time every day and slowly getting a feel for it. Great to hear from you! 2y

Today I learned that I am not cut out for 12 hour overtime night shifts. I was so tired I couldn‘t even read the new book I brought 😟🙇‍♀️💤🏳️

Laura317 Get some rest. A good power nap, a restorative cup of coffee or tea, and you can read a bit. 2y

I liked this book. I love that Petty is a such strong woman. I did guess the ending but even still I enjoyed the book. For me it's a pick!

40% off at Wal-Mart and it sounded good so I couldn't say no.

Petty Moshen is a"bad ass" 22 year old girl who has never been more than a few miles from her home in rural Kansas. Then her father dies leaving her to decide whether she will follow the terms of his will (which gets her $1M) or whether she will uncover the mystery of her past. This was a great book that kept you guessing with engaging characters that had you rooting for them to the very end.
