Murder-by-fire. A catfishing squatter. Will Maggie get her life back before the killer claims the one thing she has left to lose?
'Hutchins’ Maggie is an irresistible train wreck—you can’t help but turn the page to see what trouble she’ll get herself into next.' Robert Dugoni, #1 Amazon Bestselling Author of My Sister's Grave
Junker and former alt-country rocker Maggie Killian tucks tail back to Texas with Louise, the mutt her bull-riding ex foisted on her in Wyoming after he gave another woman his heart. Maggie runs straight to Gary Fuller—her long time best friend-with-benefits and the biggest Texas country music star since George Strait—but arrives too late to save him from dying in a fire. She just wants to lick her wounds in her own bed with nothing save a bottle for comfort, but Maggie’s short term renter refuses to budge from her home. Soon her small town sanctuary is overrun with Nashville bigwigs, Gary’s trailer park family, and grief-crazed fans feeding the fires of media speculation about the bodies in her wake.
With Maggie barely functional enough to fight back and law enforcement hell bent on scapegoating her, she begins to suspect Gary’s death wasn’t an isolated incident. To save her livelihood and sanity, she’s gotta woman-up before everything and everyone she loves goes up in flames, too.
Sick Puppy is the second standalone book in a trilogy featuring sharp-tongued protagonist Maggie Killian from the addictive What Doesn’t Kill You romantic mystery series.
