For Better or Worse by Donna Huston Murray

The title says for better or worse, but most of the people in this story are on the "worst" side of marriage.  It makes for good reading, though.

This author and Net Galley shared this book with me to read for review (thank you).  It will be published January 10th.

Ginger is at her daughter's home helping them with some updates to the house.  The first thing she sees is a bag of bricks thrown out of the third floor window next door!  Then she hears what she thinks are shots.  While she's debating calling the cops, she meets Eric who lives next door with his grandmother.  He says she's eccentric and she does crazy things.  When he finds her at the bottom of the stairs, he takes her to the hospital with her fighting him the whole way.  Then the doctor suggests he murdered her...

She meets the other neighbors and ends up babysitting for two couples.  She also finds herself being stalked by one of the husbands.  He thinks she's after him but she has no idea why.

With abusive husbands, a suggestion of murder and a child the mother doesn't seem to love, Ginger has plenty of work to do trying to make things better.  She manages in her own way and things do settle down.  I'm sure she'll find more trouble in the next book.
