Violetta Armour is a former independent bookstore owner. Her other past lives include teaching Dale Carnegie Courses and English in high school and college. Her current passions are playing Mah Jongg and Pickle Ball, attending writers’conferences and spoiling her grandchildren. Her debut novel, I’ll Always Be With You has become a book club favorite.
When Myra, one of the Mah Jongg foursome, dies mysteriously, her fellow player and friend Angelina Popoff decides to conduct her own investigation. A widow, Angelina soon becomes enamored with widower detective Guy, who returns her affection but discourages her amateur sleuth tendencies. Stubbornly she persists, botching the investigation and endangering the lives of her fellow MJ players. A story of bribery, revenge and the universal desire for belonging takes the reader on a heartfelt journey of discovery and reveals what lengths a person might go to for acceptance. The other two Mah Jongg ladies provide a comic touch as their eccentric personalities resemble the Golden Girls while Guy and Angelina’s relationship proves that even late in life there are second chances for love.
