Death of a Cantankerous Old Coot - Book 1 in the Lizzie Crenshaw mystery series:
Someone has killed Amos Gardner, one of the leading citizens of Brookdale. The sheriff wonders if it has something to do with the lawsuit Amos filed against his own granddaughter, Lizzie Crenshaw. When someone tries to kill Amos' wife, she points the finger at Lizzie, who must work with the new deputy to figure out what is going on before she is either thrown in jail...or becomes a victim herself.
There are currently three more books available in the Lizzie Crenshaw series: Death Makes the Front Page, Death Stalks the Law, and Death Goes to the Dogs. I'm currently working on the fifth book, Death Catches a Killer.
