A marital spat at a carwash turns deadly––and Mabel Wickles, Parson’s Cove’s top amateur sleuth, isn’t buying the local police’s claim that the victim’s wife smashed him over the head with a brick. But when the woman confesses to the murder, Mabel decides to investigate the crime herself––along with help from her best friend Flori, her cat Sammy, and a busload of senior citizens from the local retirement home. Little does Mabel know, however, that there’s more calamity in store for her than just a spritzing at the carwash.
Sharon Rose and her husband, Al, (now retired) live in the home that they designed and built over thirty years ago in a small community in Manitoba, Canada. Sharon squeezes in writing time between volunteering and grandchildren’s visits. Every winter, she and her husband escape the cold northern winds and head for Galveston, Texas. While taking a three‐year writing course with the Writing School in Ottawa, Canada, she had two novels published. One of her short stories appeared in Woman’s World. Since then, she’s had several short stories and one children’s story published. Her real love, however, is writing cozy mysteries involving her two favorite characters: Mabel Wickles and Flori Flanders. Their first adventure was SLIP AND GO DIE and the second was PERPLEXITY ON P 1/2. This is her third Parson’s Cove mystery.
