Feisty Old Gangbusters
In this highly anticipated sequel to Feisty Old Ladies, Margot Manning, the still dazzling and fun-loving Fashionista, once again turns accidental sleuth to solve mysteries and crimes. Having cracked the cases at Shady Palms, Margot and the two other feisty old ladies, Nancy and Jane, create FOL Enterprises, an eponymous fashion house in a magnificent Spanish Colonial historic building where they design and fabricate clothing for the senior set.
The mystery opens with Margot tripping over the body of their murdered foreman in the parking lot. Once she recovers from her injuries, Margot is determined to find out why Juan was murdered and who done it. Dangers escalate when the feisty ladies are harassed and threatened by neighborhood homies. New and former characters mix in a tale of comedy and romance, glitz and glamour that teems with suspense.
Hans, Margot’s beau, despairs over her escapades and has fits when she takes a fancy to Felipe, an adorable eight-year-old, who lives in a run-down building next to the factory with his madre and gang member brother. Even so, Margot and Hans plan a posh wedding and a honeymoon in Denmark. Halfway through the mystery, when Margot crosses a criminal gang, she and her partners find themselves in deep trouble. Only by using their wits, can they hope to escape.
