The first book in the new Empty Nest Mystery series by the USA Today bestselling author and creator of the critically acclaimed Anastasia Pollack Crafting Mystery series--with a wink and a nod of homage to Dashell Hammet's Thin Man movies, giving a modern day spin on his Nick and Nora Charles characters.
When her career is outsourced to Asia, fledgling romance author and empty-nester Gracie Elliott wants a job that will allow her time to write. So she opens Relatively Speaking, becoming a wing woman to the senior set. Since her clients need several hours each morning to find their teeth, lube their creaky joints, and deal with lower GI necessities, and they always turn in after the early bird specials, she has plenty of time to pen her future bestsellers.

Gracie deliberately avoids mentioning her new business venture to husband Blake until after she signs her first client. Blake joins the company as a not-so-silent partner, tagging along to make sure Gracie doesn't cause a septuagenarian uprising. When Client #13 is found murdered in the parking lot behind the Moose Lodge, Gracie knows, no matter how much Blake protests otherwise, she can't wait around for the police to find the killer if she wants to save her livelihood.

From the Author:

All I wanted to do was sit at my computer and write romance novels while Blake sat across the room and two-finger pecked away at Pop Goes the Culture, his epic tome on twentieth century culture and counter-culture and its influences on the media. Or vice versa. It was a real chicken-and-egg sort of thing as far as I was concerned, even if it was my husband's passion. Anyway, dead bodies weren't part of our empty nest blueprint. -- Gracie Elliott, amateur sleuth and wing woman to the senior set.                                                                                                                     Also available from Lois Winston, the USA Today bestseller Romance Super Bundle II: Second Chances offering eleven full-length novels by eleven of your favorite romance authors for just 99 cents! Special price for a limited time only.
