Publisher's Summary

Mustang Ridges isn't a town, a stripper, or some old western movie. She's a feisty, single mom living in the small town of Lakeside, Texas, where money does buy happiness, and keeping up appearances is much more important than the truth. Six months ago on her 30th birthday, her husband decided that married life, fatherhood, and his job as the Lakeside chief of police weren't as exciting as a permanent vacation to Grand Cayman with his mistress and a million dollars in diamonds he stole from the police evidence lockup.
Mustang is a pariah in a Lakeside full of piranha. But she refuses to leave - this is her home, and she figures that if she can't join them, then she'll beat them at their own game. With a little luck, some intimidation, and the help of her good friends, Monica and Haley, Mustang presides over her own little slice of Lakeside, the Bee Creek Elementary Parent Teacher Organization.
All is quiet in Lakeside until Molly Miars, the kindergarten teacher, is found dead. According to the new police chief, she overdosed on heroin. That doesn't explain why her head was the only body part to make it to her funeral. Mustang and her fellow PTOers don't buy the heroin overdose for a second.
Vowing to do right by Molly, the PTO decides to investigate.
Quickly they find that Lakeside isn't the quiet, sleepy town it appears to be. There is a dark side - money laundering and drug trafficking. When Mustang's name turns up on a contract killer's hit list, things go from bad to worse. Can she and the PTO stay alive long enough to find out who killed Molly Miars?

A hilarious cozy mystery...

I love reading / listening to Katie Graykowski's audio-books! She writes with so much humor and quirkiness, yet they are murder mysteries too!

This book is her best yet in my opinion. I laughed thru many parts. I just love the way the main character (Mustang) thinks. A friend of Mustang's turns up dead of a heroin overdose. It just doesn't make sense, so Mustang and her friends take it upon themselves to investigate the death. The laughs start from the very first chapter too! I want a Devon of my own!

The author, Katie Graykowski does a fabulous job as always in her writing. The lady has a wonderful sense of humor and shows it in every book she writes. The author is quick witted and always pleasant to read / hear. The narrator, Pam Dougherty does a great job in her delivery of this story too. I love her southern accent and the multiple voices she uses. I just loved the voice used for Devon! Kudos for Katie Graykowski using the same narrator for all her books. It is comforting to get to know a voice and hearing it from book to book. It makes a series so much more believable! Wonderful job ladies!
