Bad Housekeeping: An Agnes and Effie Mystery
What do you do when, after moving back to the small town you tried desperately to escape, your life falls completely apart? Agnes Blythe is dealing with a father who still sees her as a teenager, a housekeeper she suddenly realizes is sleeping with her father, a great-aunt who may be certifiably crazy, a now ex-fiancé who cheated on her with his Pilates instructor, a high school crush she cannot forgive, and no job. At the moment, helping her great-aunt restore a crumbling inn is Agnes’s only option. Her life cannot go from bad to worse…there is no worse! However, bad gets worse when Agnes and her great-aunt Effie stumble upon a dead body at the inn and they are both prime suspects for the murder.
Maia Chance’s Bad Housekeeping is a fun-filled murder mystery that keeps you guessing right to the end. With a crazy cast of characters, some you love and some you hate, there is no shortage of suspects. Effie’s laid back attitude and Agnes’s uptight demeanor push them into difficult, dangerous, and sometimes hilarious situations. Will Agnes and Effie discover the truth before they are arrested for the murder?
