Murder is a Dirty Business by Tricia L. Sanders

Murder is a Dirty Business
by Tricia L. Sanders

Cece is one of my new heroines. Proof that women don’t have to sit in rocking chairs, knit little things and pet their cats after reaching a certain age. They can start over – in life, in business, in love. They can surprise the heebie jeebies out of themselves and the people around them.
~Back Porchervations

Filled with colorful characters, an intriguing career choice and an interesting mystery, Ms. Sanders kept my attention from start to finish.
~Queen of All She Reads

The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and through much of the book I felt like I was right there, watching all of the action taking place and listening in on conversations.
~MJB Reviewers

With twists and turns befitting a good mystery, and a sprinkling of humor and flirtation, this book is a very impressive start to what promises to be a great series by a new author.
~Cassidy’s Bookshelves

Cece is not afraid to do whatever it takes, regardless of the mistakes she makes along the way.
The last couple chapters of this book are very exciting.
~Laura’s Interests

Murder Is A Dirty Business is chock full of fun characters . . .
~My Reading Journeys

There was so much that I enjoyed about this book: Cece’s character, the hunky detective, a mystery to solve and lots of humor.
~Storeybook Reviews

Cece is a fantastic lead! She’s sassy, holds her own, and has an amazing strength of character.

When Cece Cavanaugh’s husband empties their joint bank account, steals her designer luggage, and runs off with a younger woman, Cece must decide whether to ask her manipulative mother-in-law for a handout or get a job. Choosing the easier path, Cece lands a job cleaning a crime scene where a high school coach was murdered. When his wife is implicated—a young woman Cece practically raised—Cece finds herself mopping floors, balancing an empty checkbook, and ferreting out a killer.

Amid all this messy business, Cece bumps heads with a handsome detective. She tries to ignore her growing attraction to the detective, but he gives new meaning to the term “hot flash.”

After she stumbles onto a clue that could vindicate her friend, her elation turns to panic when she haphazardly confronts the killer. Through the danger and romance, Cece discovers self-reliance and inner strength.

And that crime—at least, someone else’s—does pay the bills.

Tricia L. Sanders writes about women with class, sass, and a touch of kickass.  A former instructional designer and corporate trainer, she traded in curriculum writing for novel writing, because she hates bullet points and loves to make stuff up. And fiction is more fun than training guides and lesson plans.

When she isn’t writing, Tricia is busy crossing dreams off her bucket list. With all 50 states checked, she’s concentrating on foreign interests. She’s an avid St. Louis Cardinals fan, so don’t get between her and the television when a game is on. Currently, she is working on a mystery series set in the fictional town of Wickford, Missouri. Another project in the works is a women’s fiction road trip adventure.

Her essays have appeared in Sasee, ByLine, The Cuivre River Anthology and Great American Outhouse Stories; The Whole Truth and Nothing Butt. She is a proud member of The Lit Ladies, six women writing their truths into fiction.
