Publisher's Summary

It's 1974 and Ellison Russell's life revolves around her daughter and her art. She's long since stopped caring about her cheating husband, Henry, and the women with whom he entertains himself. That is, until she becomes a suspect in Madeline Harper's death. The murder forces Ellison to confront her husband's proclivities and his crimes - kinky sex, petty cruelties, and blackmail. As the body count approaches par on the seventh hole, Ellison knows she has to catch a killer. But with an interfering mother, an adoring father, a teenage daughter, and a cadre of well-meaning friends demanding her attention, can Ellison find the killer before he finds her?

Loved this fun and funny new series.

Tripping back to the past, to the early 70's in this new mystery series.

For the Kansas City's well heeled gentry, membership to the Country Club is part of the norm. Where gossip is past over coffee or cocktails and no past is ever a secret!

It's 1974, and when Ellison Russell's early morning swim in the Country Club pool is cut short with the discovery of Madeline Harper's dead body floating in the pool. Ellison's life is turned upside down.

Madeline was Ellison's husband Henry's mistress (one among many). Not that it bother Ellison, as she had given up on her marriage some time ago. Her major concerns are her daughter and her art.

But Madeline's murder forces Ellison to confront her husband’s proclivities and his crimes—kinky sex, petty cruelties and blackmail.

With the body count going up, Ellison need to finds the answers before the killer sends her to permanent slumber!

Loved this fun and funny new series. With a great set of characters, well plotted and written. This series is not to be missed!

Callie Beaulieu gives a excellent narration in this the first book in the Country Club Murders.

A whodunnit!

Once I had assimilated the accent I was away. Callie's voice and diction are good, and the dialogue is entertaining. The story is an interesting thumbnail of how the other half live in well to do parts of America. The love/sex interest is provoking, and the story weaves comfortably through the 'heroine's' mental dialogue - it is dramatic and realistic without being horrifying or gut wrenching. I'm looking forward to book two.
