Following up A Bad Day for Sorry (an Anthony Award winner and Edgar Award finalist) and A Bad Day for Pretty (a New York Times Notable Book), Sophie Littlefield's third outing for fifty-ish battered-woman avenger Stella Hardesty sees the return of Priss Porter to their hometown of Prosper, Missouri. Now a big-time Kansas City businesswoman, Priss has got a body stashed in the trunk, and she wants Stella to take it off her hands—or else Priss will spill the beans about Stella's vigilante activities and ruin her chances with Sheriff "Goat" Jones. When Priss disappears, however, Stella has to clear her own name in a twisty mystery full of people doing what they oughtn't.
"This caper is more fun than eating cotton candy on a Ferris wheel. Littlefield’s zesty dialog and astute observations make this irreverent third series entry (after A Bad Day for Sorry and A Bad Day for Pretty) fly by. The zaniness evokes Janet Evanovich or Harley Jane Kozak; the story itself, Ben Rehder, who writes so well about good old boys behaving badly."—Library Journal
