Set in Hogan's Glen, Md., this witty cozy from Toussaint (No Second Chance
) introduces Cleopatra Jones, accountant, avid golfer and single mother of two. Still reeling from her divorce from her cheating ex-husband, Charlie, Cleo is stunned to discover Charlie's best friend from childhood, Donny Davis (aka Dudley Doright), lying on the golf course, a bullet hole between his eyes. When the police suspect Cleo's own childhood friend, Jonette Moore, of the crime, Cleo goes into action to flush out the real murderer. A handsome golf pro's offer of romance gives Cleo a boost as she deals with her mother, her children and the Saint Bernard dumped on her by her ex-husband. While filled with clichéd prose and stereotypical characters, the story takes some unexpected and dangerous turns as it builds to a satisfying conclusion. (June)
