From the Vault

The Vault book for this week is from the Heartsong Presents Mysteries line. Though this line is no longer in production, they put out some great cozy mysteries that are still available. If you'd be interested in a list of titles, check out this link.
The number to call is listed.

From Murder on the Ol' Bunions:

So why didn't this girl seem the least bit flustered by news of a dead body?

Interesting indeed.

I heaped three spoonfuls of sugar and as much cream as I could fit into the cup without making it overflow then blew on the brew. "You having that spat with Marion means you'll be on the list of suspects." Telling her that I had personally reinforced Chief Conrad's suspicion didn't seem too wise.

She didn't look happy. "You think he's going to question me?"

"Sure as my bunions ache." They did, too. I shifted my weight and slid off my shoes to rub one foot against the other. My chair chose that moment to let out a grievous moan. This woman needed to get herself some real furniture. "No one dethrones Marion's girl, Valorie, without releasing the terrorist in her momma."

From the Back Cover:

LaTisha Barnhart's bunions tell her something's afoot as she delves deeper into the murder of her former employer, Marion Peters. When LaTisha becomes a suspect, the ante is upped, and she is determined to clear her name and find the real culprit.

She's burping Mark Hamm's bad cooking to investigate his beef with Marion. . .getting her hair styled at a a high-falutin' beauty parlor to see what has Regina Rogane in a snarl. . .playing self-appointed matchmaker between the local police chief and a prime suspect. . .and thinking Payton O'Mahney's music store lease might be the reason he's singing out of tune when discussion of Marion's murder arises. LaTisha's thinking she just might use the reward money to get her bunions surgically removes. But she's got to catch the crook first.
