Mud, Sweat, and Tears (Trailer Park Princess)

Kim Hunt Harris

Mystery

Anyone who knows anything about Texas knows there is precious little that’s more important than football. Pro football, college football, peewee football, it doesn’t matter. If it’s an egg-shaped ball, Texans are all over it. But there is one very particular football – this is the ball that a former Texas Tech Red Raider caught during last year’s Super Bowl game and ran into the end zone for the game-winning touchdown. As footballs go, it doesn’t get much more important than this. The ball was donated to a charity auction and expected to fetch a pretty sum. Until it disappears. Salem and Viv are on the hunt for the missing football and the reward money that goes with it. At least, Viv is on the hunt. Salem has all she can handle not freaking out about the mud run she’s signed up for. But she feels about reward money like the rest of Texas feels about football. If she can manage not to humiliate herself during the Mud, Sweat, and Tears Run (a mighty big if) she might just score some points of her own.

A British silver fox has moved into the Belle Court Retirement Center, and octogenarian amateur sleuth Viv Kennedy is crushing on him hard. Unfortunately, he appears singularly unimpressed with Viv’s overnight adoption of every British phrase she knows (and a few she’s, admittedly, unclear on.)

After all, it will make her best friend happy. It will also make her husband happy — Tony is under the impression that if Viv finds a man and settles down, Salem will stop chasing bad guys down dark alleys with her.But Salem doesn’t know if that will make her happy. She knows she isn’t really a private detective. Shoot, she isn’t even any good at the chasing bad guys down...

Mystery

Another day, another dead body. It's all in a day of the life of Salem Grimes.Salem Grimes figures even a God who works in mysterious ways wouldn’t resort to a dead body in a dumpster in answer to Salem’s prayers to help her stay on her diet – excuse me – Strat-EAT-Gic plan. But a dead body in a dumpster it is, and now Salem and Viv, her octogenarian partner-in-crime-solving, are on the case once again. Salem finds the search for the killer a satisfactory distraction from all the things she needs distraction from – “dates” with the husband she hasn’t known for the past decade, growing jealousy of Viv’s friendship with Dale-the-Annoying-Hanger-On, and a mentor who says things that – okay, maybe Salem needs to hear, but she really doesn’t want to. As she seeks peace amidst praying prairie dogs and too much Chinese food, Salem struggles to disentangle what she believes from what...
