Leftover Dead

Waitress Wanda Nell Culpepper is barely hitched to her new husband, Jack, before the couple starts digging into an unsolved murder from thirty-one years ago. But a new death puts this cold case on the front burner. (Amazon)

Wanda has finally found the happiness she deserves with Jack. She can finally quit her second job and enjoy life a little bit more. When Jack stumbles upon an idea for his next book, Wanda Nell is only to happy to help. Together they set out to find out not only the identity of the young girl but who killed her. With the help of family and friends they are able to finally let this girl rest in peace while at the same time bring her killer to justice. Along the way they make more friends and find time to spend with those they love. What I love about this series is that the author makes these characters feel like "real people". They have real jobs and real struggles. I am extremely sad to hear that this series is ending. I'm not sure if this is the last book or (hoping) if there is one more. But either way ~ I will miss these people as I'd miss an old friend.
