Paper, Scissors, Death: Book #1 in the Kiki Lowenstein Mystery Series by Joanna Campbell Slan

The story begins with the death of her husband.  She can't believe what the cop is trying to tell her.  He was in good health and still young, how could he die?  They believe it was a heart attack but she doesn't.  But who would have killed him?

The author shared a copy of this book with me for review (thank you).  It has been published and you can pick up a copy now.

It gets worse.  Despite living well and having plenty of money to spend, she finds out he was in debt and she will have to liquidate everything.  If that's not bad enough, his mother is trying to take her little girl away from her.  Life is definitely treating her nice right now.

When she finds out he was still sleeping with his old girlfriend, her life topples over again.  Then the lover turns up dead and the cops think she did it.  Could it get worse?  Yes and it does.

This is a well written cozy with a new romance blooming and the main character being threatened with death.  I'd love to read more in this series.  The author give you characters you can like.  The only problem is the murderer is still alive...
