Chicken
Scratch
The
Sisters, Texas Series Book 1
by
Becki Willis
Genre:
Cozy Mystery


Named
2016 Best Mystery Series by Texas Association of Authors.

When
Madison Reynolds finds herself widowed and penniless before forty,
she does the only thing she knows to do – she packs up her teenage
twins and moves back home with her eighty-year-old grandmother. Life
in The Sisters, Texas has not changed much since she’s been gone,
but at least her best friend Genesis is there to soften the
transition back into small-town life.
To
make ends meet, Madison opens In a Pinch Temporary Services.
Her first real client is Ronny Gleason, but when she shows up for the
first day of work at the Gleason Poultry Farm, Madison makes a
gruesome discovery. The dead body she finds belongs to Mr. Gleason.
When a local man is arrested for murder, Madison takes on the job of
proving his innocence. Even though she is not a private investigator,
both mothers are desperate: Lucy Ngyen to clear her son’s name, and
Madison to pay her bills. But as she begins asking questions around
town, her interference is not welcome.
With
a daughter determined to go back to Dallas, a son settling into small
town life, a feisty grandmother who knows all the town gossip, bill
collectors calling, and now someone trying to keep her silent,
Madison has no time for re-kindling her high school crush with police
chief Brash deCordova. She has her hands full just trying to stay
alive.
If
she survives her amateur investigation, Maddy has a decision to make.
Will she go back to her life in Dallas, or will she build a new life
here in The Sisters?

When The Stars Fall
The
Sisters, Texas Series Book 2



Madison
Reynolds is rebuilding her life, one obstacle at a time. 

But
the building blocks aren’t standard issue: widowed at
thirty-nine…betrayed by her late husband…mother of teenaged
twins…finances in shambles…living with her eighty-year-old
grandmother…still attracted to her teenage crush Brash deCordova,
who just happens to be the Chief of Police in The Sisters…embroiled
in yet another murder mystery… How will she ever get all the blocks
assembled and stacked one upon another, in order to build a future
for herself and her children?

Madison’s
newest client at In a Pinch Temp Service is a suspicious wife, up against a formidable foe—the lovely Caress
Ellingsworth, former soap opera queen. When the star is murdered and
Madison is eyewitness to the deed, she wonders if the shadowed person
she saw commit the crime might really be her client. Now Madison is
torn between uncovering the truth and keeping her client’s name off
the suspect list.
Caress
is not the only star in town these days. With a little help from
Granny Bert and Madison’s best friend Genesis, the popular
television show Home Again arrives, with some crazy notion about
remodeling the Big House for Maddy and her twins. The problem is,
Madison can’t afford to buy the house, much less pay to have it
renovated. No matter how tempting the offer—or how tempting the
show’s star, Nick Vilardi—Madison sees it as just another block
that will not fit.
Even
if she manages to stack the blocks in a semblance of order, even if
she climbs her way up and reaches for the sky, what happens when the
stars fall?

Stipulations and
Complications
The Sisters, Texas
Series Book 3


Life
comes with stipulations.

If you want to fit into last year’s
swimsuit, you can’t eat ice cream and a Gennydoodle cookie after
every meal.


If you want to go to Heaven, you can’t raise Hell on
Saturday night and show up in the church pew on Sunday morning,
hungover and reeking of cheap perfume.

And if you want your
hundred-year-old mansion completely updated and remodeled for free,
you have to sacrifice.
Stipulations, my child.
-Granny Bert
Cessna



Now
that Madison Reynolds has agreed to be part of a reality-television
home remodeling show, she barely recognizes her own life. The show is
an instant success, bringing cameras and reporters right to her
doorstep, eager to chronicle her every move in the small Texas town.
With In
a Pinch Temporary Services
 hovering on the thin line between
prosperity and extinction, Madison takes on another quirky case, this
one concerning a property dispute. Complications turn a simple
mission into all-out danger, and once again Madison finds herself
embroiled in an intriguing mystery.
Between
her cantankerous grandmother, a moody teenage daughter, an
ever-starving son, townspeople eager to grab their fifteen minutes of
fame at her expense, and a mother-in-law appalled by her undignified
foray into the public eye, Madison had her hands full, long before
the skeleton was discovered. Now work is interrupted at the Big
House, ghost stories abound, more secret passages have been
unearthed, and someone is trying to scare her away from her new home.
What
she needs
 is another session of Brash deCordova’s unique
‘river therapy’… not to mention the kiss that eludes them with
frustrating regularity.
What
she gets
 is another round of stipulations and complications.

Again: Starting Over
The
Sisters, Texas Series Book 4


Named
"Best Mystery Series of 2017" by Texas Association of
Authors 

Things in The Sisters are heating up, and Madison
Reynolds is in the hot seat.


When a local woman dies in a most
unconventional way, In a Pinch takes on the quirky case and once
again, Maddy finds herself in the middle of a would-be murder
investigation. Even with the help of her grandmother and best friend
Genny, this case may be too hot to handle. 
As summer
scorches its way across Texas, drama as thick as the August humidity
rolls through the twin towns of Juliet and Naomi. Granny Bert reveals
a secret that rocks Maddy’s foundation. A celebrity designer joins
the renovation crew at the Big House, bringing twice the chaos and
twice the fans. Madison’s estranged mother-in-law convinces the
twins to spend the summer with her in Dallas. As if all of that isn’t
enough to wreak havoc in Madison’s life, Barry Redmond continues to
propagate his ridiculous grudge against her. 
Things really
start smoking when Cutter’s grandfather, rodeo legend Sticker
Pierce, returns to The Sisters and tries to rekindle a romance with
old flame Belle, aka Granny Bert. And Maddy’s latest brush with
death prompts Brash to finally make his move. 
With
renovations almost complete and the love of a good man behind her,
Maddy is ready to tell the world: I’m home again, and starting
over. 
Don’t miss Book Four in the award-winning The

Genny's
Ballad
The
Sisters, Texas Series Book 5


By
all accounts, everyone loves Genny. 

So why does someone want
her 
dead? 


There’s something
special about Genesis Baker, owner of The Sister’s popular New
Beginnings Café
. With her dimpled smile and twinkling blue eyes,

Genny has practically the entire town eating from the palm of her
hand. But Genny is hiding a secret. Despite her sunny disposition and
golden touch, there is heartache in her past, and heartache, they
say, comes in threes. 

Heartache Number One: An
unwelcomed customer shows up at New Beginnings.
Apparently, the restraining order against him has lapsed. 
Heartache
Number Two:
 Genny’s arch nemesis from high school returns
to town. Twenty years has done nothing to mellow the bitter feud
between these two women. 
Heartache Number Three: As
Genny finally acknowledges her feelings for a younger man—sexy
firefighter Cutter Montgomery—memories of her first love come back
to haunt her.

On top of it all, someone is stalking Genny,
determined to make her life miserable. 
As it turns
out, being kidnapped is only the beginning of her troubles… 

Great
as a stand-alone, but Book Five of the award winning The
Sisters, Texas Mystery Series,
 voted Best Mystery Series by
the Texas Association of Authors, two years in a row!
