All Ellison Russell wanted was an update on her stock portfolio. Instead, she found her broker dead.

With an unexpected out-of-town guest at her house, Ellison is too busy for a murder investigation. Only this time, Detective Anarchy Jones wants her help, and she can’t deny the handsome detective. Can Mr. Coffee supply her with enough caffeine to keep her brain sharp and everyone else happy?

Juggling bodies (one, two, three, four), two-faced friends, her social calendar, and a cat (yes, a cat) is taxing but Mother might be the biggest challenge of all.

With a killer drawing closer, can Ellison put together the pieces or will she be the one getting stabbed in the back?

Guest Post

Ellison Russell has Cabot Cove Syndrome. Like Jessica Fletcher, she finds bodies here, there, and everywhere.

Most people don’t find bodies. Not even one.

To follow a character who does, especially one who’s not a police detective or private investigator, requires the suspension of disbelief.

I thought about that a lot when I began this writing journey. Would readers who met Ellison, an affluent, artistic widow, care enough about her and her family to overlook the fact there was no reasonable explanation for all those bodies?

Back Stabbers marks the eighth book in the Country Club Murders. And, per usual, Ellison encounters a body (I like to start books with bodies—it gives the first chapter some ooomph). Per usual, she finds the body someplace completely unexpected.  

Part of the fun in writing the series comes from finding new and surprising places for Ellison to stumble over death (a swimming pool, under the stands at a high school football game, a haunted house, in the study with a revolver, a commercial freezer…the list goes on and on). Hopefully finding those bodies is part of the fun for readers as well
