“. . . a strong start to the Sidra Smart mystery series. . . . This well-written page-turner will keep the reader entertained throughout.”
– Christy Tillery French

“Move over Stephanie Plum and Annie Darling . . . there’s a new sassy sleuth on the scene!
 With atmospheric descriptions of rural East Texas and character-driven plots, [Smith] has a real knack for crafting a quality thriller.”
– Chick Lit Café

Fifty-year-old Sidra Smart is not your ordinary rookie private eye. A recently divorced preacher’s wife, she knows nothing about running the private detective business she’s just inherited from her brother. But soon her first client bursts in with vague flashbacks of a grisly thirty-year-old murder. Sidra Smart struggles to survive her own internal conflicts as she plunges into a surreal world of passion and crime as memories of child abuse, arson, and murder interweave.

Sid manages to find her way with (or despite?) help from her meddlesome Aunt Annie, along with professional advice from her mentor, Cajun-speaking, booze-drinking George Léger.

The story takes place in and around Orange, Texas, in the borderlands where Texas and Louisiana meet, a region filled with colorful characters, good food, and dark secrets.
