Meadowlark Madness – an Emily Trace mystery
Emily Trace is a young widow with a mission: to find out who murdered her husband. The police are baffled, and after six months she decides to take matters into her own hands.
Opening her own detective agency - E. T. Investigations - seems to Emily like a good way to look for clues. That is, until her first client shows up with the mistaken impression that E. T. stands for Extra Terrestrial instead of Emily Trace. He hires her to look into an alien abduction case involving a species of bird - meadowlark, no less - and before she can say UFO, Emily is embroiled in a case that will change her life.
Set in the Pacific Northwest city of Spokane, Washington, Meadowlark Madness takes the reader on a trek through several of the sleepy farming communities in the area, where Emily encounters some strange happenings and embarks on a few unexpected side trips.
