What Happened to Frank?

"What happened to Frank? is a quick-paced and easy to read mystery.  It carries you along as Meg investigates a series of possible suspects until she finds the answer to Frank's death.  And that answer is a surprise!  I shall say no more."

~~ Anne Leueen Willoughy, Dressage Rider, Canadian former actress and author of the popular blog:

"If you thought Book 1 ... had you scratching your head at the goings on surrounding her husband, Frank, then "Over Frank's Dead Body" will keep you in suspense all over again.  Finding out what is behind this takes the reader on another mind bender."

~~ Jennifer Morrison,

Author, Freelance Horse Racing Writer, Handicapper, Four-Time Sovereign Award Winner

"This book reminded me of why I love a good 'whodunit.'  The tight writing and fast pace quickly drew me in and didn't let go of me until the last page.  I might just have a new favourite sleuth."

~~ William Bell,

Author, President and Founder, Bell Financial Inc.
