(Midwest Cozy Mystery Series: Book 1)
By Dianne Harman
A widow living in a small college Midwest college town writing steamy novels? Her editor murdered? Kat Denham writes under the pen name of Sexy Cissy, but it all falls apart when her true identity becomes known.
Kat is the one who finds her murdered editor and she and several others are worried that she’ll be the next one to be murdered. She has to find the murderer to save her reputation and her life, but who did it? Was it her editor’s husband? Was it the woman who had become obsessed with any book she considered to be morally objectionable? Or was it the “trophy wife” of the local banker?
How does this book “tie” to the previous book listing?
Murdered by Words is about a widow and the choices she makes to support herself and her daughter. A widow and her mom are main characters in the previous book featured, The Cemetery Club by Blanche Day Manos.

She originally wrote a suspense series which was well received and has won several awards, but says it didn’t allow her to focus on the things she really enjoys: cooking, travel, and dogs.
