For Amanda Bell Brown, just living her life is murder!

How’s a woman supposed to grapple with faith, a fine man, and turning thirty-five when she keeps tripping in her high heels over mysteries — and not just the God kind?

Amanda Bell Brown knows that life as a forensic psychologist isn’t quite as cool as it looks on prime-time TV. But when she turns thirty-five with no husband or baby on the horizon, she decides she’s gotta get out and paint the town — in her drop-dead red birthday dress. Instead, she finds herself at the scene of a crime — and she just may know who the killer is. She needs to spill her guts, but not on the handsome lead detective’s alligator shoes — especially if she wants him to ask her out. A complicated murder investigation unearths not just a killer but a closet full of skeletons Amanda thought were long gone. Murder, mayhem, and a fine man are wreaking havoc on her birthday, but will her sleuthing leave her alive to see past thirty-five?

Claudia Mair Burney is the author of Murder, Mayhem & a Fine Man, Death, Deceit & Some Smooth Jazz (both titles in the Amanda Bell Brown Mystery series) and the young adult novel, Exorsistah. She lives in Michigan with her husband, five of their seven children, and a rabbit. Visit her blog at ragamuffindiva.blogspot.com.
