When Cece Cavanaugh’s husband empties their joint bank account, steals her designer luggage, and runs off with a younger woman, Cece must decide whether to ask her manipulative mother-in-law for a handout or get a job. Choosing the easier path, Cece lands a job cleaning a crime scene where a high school coach was murdered. When his wife is implicated—a young woman Cece practically raised—Cece finds herself mopping floors, balancing an empty checkbook, and ferreting out a killer.
Amid all this messy business, Cece bumps heads with a handsome detective. She tries to ignore her growing attraction to the detective, but he gives new meaning to the term “hot flash.”
After she stumbles onto a clue that could vindicate her friend, her elation turns to panic when she haphazardly confronts the killer. Through the danger and romance, Cece discovers self-reliance and inner strength.
And that crime—at least, someone else’s—does pay the bills.

Cece Cavanaugh learns that not only is her vacation to Italy canceled but it seems her marriage vows are now null and void as well. Her husband has a new playmate, has emptied their bank accounts, failed to pay the mortgage and is headed to Rio, leaving Cece to explain to their daughters.
Before she has a chance, her eldest daughter is involved in a murder.
Cece is a problem solver. She has enjoyed the life of a trophy wife for many years but now it is time she step up, pull her head out of the clouds and straighten out her life.
Cece is not afraid to do whatever it takes, regardless of the mistakes she makes along the way.
The last couple chapters of this book are very exciting.

Tricia L. Sanders writes about women with class, sass, and a touch of kickass.
 A former instructional designer and corporate trainer, she traded in curriculum writing for novel writing, because she hates bullet points and loves to make stuff up. And fiction is more fun than training guides and lesson plans.

When she isn’t writing, Tricia is busy crossing dreams off her bucket list. With all 50 states checked, she’s concentrating on foreign interests.
She’s an avid St. Louis Cardinals fan, so don’t get between her and the television when a game is on. Currently, she is working on a mystery series set in the fictional town of Wickford, Missouri.
Another project in the works is a women’s fiction road trip adventure.

Her essays have appeared in Sasee, ByLine, The Cuivre River Anthology and Great American Outhouse Stories; The Whole Truth and Nothing Butt.
She is a proud member of The Lit Ladies, six women writing their truths into fiction.
