Lots of readers tell me their favorite thing about River Sutton Mysteries is the relationship between sisters Robin and Jenn.
Confession time: Me too!
Here’s a lil’ bit of conversation between the gals from A Fatal Fumble to give you an idea of how fun they are in Book 2 of the series.
Jenn pulled sunglasses from her oversized handbag and jammed them on her nose. “Who cinched her girth too tight? I’ve never seen Heidi so angry.”
“Me, neither.” Robin searched the crowd for the troublemaker in question, but she must have stormed off after her rant.
“She has some pretty strong feelings about you.”
“And about Jim.” Robin leaned closer to Jenn. “I think she’s the one having an affair with Jim.”
Jenn pursed her lips and nodded. “Makes sense. First of all, she’s frickin’ gorgeous. I’d kill to have those boobs. Deb wouldn’t mind, either.” She winked at Robin.
Robin rolled her eyes to the sky. “TMI.”
“Second of all, they work together. All those business trips he took? Maybe she went with him.”
“Could be.” Robin shook her head. “But I promised Chris I would stay out of it.” She whirled on Jenn. “He’s not wrapped around my finger, by the way.”
Jenn waved a hand and quirked her lips. “We’re just talking. It’s not like you’re tackling Jim and handcuffing him.”
“True.” Robin chewed her lip. “So, if they were having an affair, maybe that would nullify his prenup with Kim, and she would have raked in more cash in the divorce. Which could mean Heidi bumped off Kim to see a bigger payday for Jim, if she’s sleeping with him. She would benefit from that, right?” She raised her eyebrows at Jenn.
Jenn’s eyes popped, and her mouth hung open. “And it would be super smart for her to accuse you in public to throw the scent off herself.”
“I don’t know why Chris doesn’t want my help. We’re geniuses.” Robin held up her hand and Jenn slapped her a high-five.
There’s a lot of shenanigans happening in River Sutton in A Fatal Fumble. Check out the synopsis:
Only one thing would drag Robin Pearce home to the small town of River Sutton, West Virginia for the high school’s 100th homecoming celebration: seeing her sister / best friend back in her old cheering uniform perform with a huge smile on her face at the halftime show.
Checking out Sheriff Chris Payne’s broad shoulders in his old quarterback’s jersey wouldn’t be a chore, either. So, make that two things.
But when Robin bumps into high school classmates, her homecoming turns into a nightmare. She literally stumbles over the dead body of her frenemy, River Sutton’s top trophy wife.
The whole town suspects Robin, and even Chris wants to lock her up for her safety. Robin is forced to use her cyber sleuthing skills to uncover the River Sutton’s killer before another body drops. Is it the desperate soon-to-be-ex-husband? Or the greedy land developer? Or someone else hidden in the shadows?
Be sure to leave an honest review when you’re finished. I can’t wait to hear what you think!
