It’s time to show some ovaries.
All Jules Nichols wants is respect—and babies. A quiet life with a happy family. So with the help of her lover, she comes up with a plan to get rid of her abusive hubby. Once Eddie’s dead she and Wesley can live on the insurance money. Quietly. Happily.
They’ve thought everything through: alibis, misleading clues, disposing of the murder weapon, even how often Jules should check in with the cops to make sure something is being done to find Eddie’s killer.
Still, good thing she’s bold and determined, because despite all her planning, the baddies start lining up against her. First it’s the Mob, then drug-dealing bikers, then even her crazy sister. At the same time, the Vermont State Police won’t go away, and Wesley’s not exactly manning up to deal.
There’s also the little issue of that head in a box.
When Wesley and their new baby are abducted, it’s no time for Jules to lose her own head. Who could have known it would be so hard to commit one little murder and start a family?
