Praise for the first K.J. Larsen mystery
"Full of breezy comebacks and characters that come off the page." -Kirkus Reviews
When Cleo Jones shoots her cheating husband's bum full of buckshot, he disappears, taking her money, her dog, and her sister with him. Cat DeLuca, owner of the Pants On Fire Detective Agency, promises to return the dog and money if her client stops shooting at Walter. She finds the dog, a mysterious bag full of cash, and Walter-his very dead body still warm. The cops quickly arrest Cleo for the murder, but Cat is determined to prove her client's innocence. Her investigation leads to four players with secrets. But when forensic evidence suggests Cat knows more about the murder than she's telling, she faces the certain loss of her agency...and maybe much more.
One day, three sisters, Julianne, Kristen, and Kari Larsen, linked by a voracious love of mysteries, set off to write their own. Sticks and Stones is the second book in the Cat DeLuca mystery series.
