With One Foot In Front Of The Other, The Glad Girls Walk Up On Murder

Meet The Glad Girls, three women of a certain age.

Claudette Fersner, newspaper columnist and occasional small-time television interviewer is married to the former Police Chief of Sabula, North Carolina. She has a nose for mystery.

Darlene Funderburke is better known around town as the former Mountain Laurel Queen who never gave up her crown. She is the wife of Buster, the local pest exterminator, but she becomes a widow when The Glad Girls walk up on Buster’s murdered body.

Polly Middleton, Claudette’s lovable and bossy octogenarian aunt, walks each day in the cemetery with The Glad Girls and her fifty-pound dog, Barbara Boxer. Aunt Polly is never shy when it comes to letting her opinions be known.

After discovering Buster’s body, The Glad Girls set out to solve the mystery. Their quest becomes urgent when Darlene is named the #1 suspect. Meanwhile, two more victims turn up dead in the cemetery, both connected to Buster and by default also to Darlene.

Shrouded in mystery, the Sabula cemetery becomes a burial ground in more ways than one. Can the local police find the murderer before someone else turns up dead or will The Glad Girls solve the mystery and get their friend Darlene off the hook? AMAZON
