Suddenly Hannah is asking hard questions of the good and solid citizens of Pearson's Corner, peering behind the facade of the perfect small town and piecing together the last days of a girl who died on her high school homecoming night -- a girl about the same age as Hannah's own daughter. Uncovering some dangerous secrets, Hannah can feel her own spirit and body surging back to life. After all, she beat death once. Now, with a killer on the loose, she has to face an even deadlier foe. . . .

Marcia Talley Sing it to her bones
How spoiled and irritating is Hanna Ives. No wonder her daughter ran away, comes back, and runs away again. However, people in pain and/or after an ordeal like breast cancer surgery may act strangely when having pain and/or using narcotics.
Hanna is in recovery from breast cancer and the requisite surgery. She is sore where her scar is but she has movement. She rushes off to Connie in Pearson's Corner, who lives on her husband’s family farm. Connie cossets her. Hanna takes the family dog for a walk. The dog noses around a cistern. When Hanna uncovers it she finds a body floating in it. The who and why are the basis of the book. Those involved finally know who the victim is/was. The questions continue with why. There is much of Hanna running around the little area of the town and finding herself in perplexing situations, with one being life threatening. In spite of her pain, Hanna is able to escape once with her life, but not her purse and time with craft and strength.
The story grinds on with worry about her teacher-husband; about who the “bad” guys are, and how to get out of tight spots while doing major healing. Maybe, she is mostly healed so that she can save herself and Connie from drowning.
To set the scene: Hannah is fired from her office-manager job and decides to reclaim her life by visiting her sister-in-law, Connie. She almost loses her life while investigating murder.
This is a great fast-read. Here is an example of the author's style and sense of humor:
"I raided Connie's medicine cabinet that night - slim pickings- I can tell you. Rooting through left over vials of prescription medication that had been lying around since the Nixon administration, my hopes were raised when I discovered a brown plastic container labeled 'percocet' hidden behind a blue jar that might once have held noxema, but with the exception of some tell-tale dust at the bottom, the percocet container was empty. I fought the urge to dip into it with a wet finger. I had to settle for a nearly empty bottle of aspirin that had expired in 1995."
This title was published in 1999 and the series is still being written. But some titles are available only from Amazon.com Sellers. However, I have had excellent results with the sellers. So don't miss this series.
