These new retirees have just hit the road. Will their first campsite’s shenanigans land them both in handcuffs?

Mattie Modesky’s been hankering to start retirement right. Even if it’s in an RV. The sassy senior believes there’s no time like the present after her policeman husband hangs up his badge and they hit the road.

When they reach their first RV park, the yoga instructor hitting on Mattie’s man turns her peaceful vacation sour. In an effort to stand her ground and confront the sneaky resident, Mattie finds a new friend, a stiff corpse, and her husband as the prime suspect.

She is shocked to her core when her man’s newly purchased pocketknife is the murder weapon. But when the real killer makes the fatal mistake of dognapping her beloved pooch, the silver-haired sleuth sets her sights on solving the crime herself and proving her lawman’s innocence.

Can Mattie clear her hubby’s name and reclaim their pup before the villain turns their golden years into iron bars? Or will the killer roll away in a motor home with Mattie’s dog in the passenger seat?

Flea Market Felony is the adventure-packed first book in The Mattie and Mo Mysteries series. If you like irresistible characters, fun surprises, and captivating whodunits, then you’ll love Tricia L. Sanders’s clever read.

A word from Lizbeth

Hey everyone, I’m Lizbeth, Mattie’s best friend and confidant. This crazy idea of Mattie and Mo traveling around the country has me bummed. What is wrong with those two? They have a perfectly fine home here in Pine Grove. And now that Mo’s retired, we could be doing a lot more as couples like going to breakfast occasionally or dinner. But no, they’ve decided to rent out their house and go RVing.

They wanted us to take up RVing too. I can tell you that won’t happen. My husband is still working, but even when he retires--I hope that doesn’t happen soon—we’re staying put. I got my grandbabies that I babysit for, and I’m not about to traipse around and leave my babies in the care of some stranger. They need me. I probably need them more, but don’t tell my daughter.

What do you want to know about Mattie? She’s the kindest person I know and the best of best friends. She always has my back, and I’ll always have hers. We’ve decided to stay in touch with video chat. Thank goodness for the internet and laptops. Just talking on the phone isn’t good enough, I want to be able to see her smiling face. And how she’s going to live in such close quarters with Mo, I do not know.  She and I will need to chat a whole lot more to keep her sane. We always kid about our husbands getting in the way. It’s one thing in a house, but darn, that man will be constantly underfoot in an RV. She’s going to need to vent once in a while.

I’m hoping they’ll get this RVing thing out of their system and come back home, but we’ll see. I can’t wait to hear about their first trip. You can read about it in Flea Market Felony. If you want to know how they even got that RV, you can read about it in the prequel, Hark! A Homicide. Not to toot my own horn, but I play a big part in that story.


About Tricia L. Sanders

Tricia L. Sanders lives in the Austin, Texas area and writes about women with class, sass, and a touch of kickass. A former instructional designer and corporate trainer, she traded in curriculum writing for novel writing, because she hates bullet points and loves to make stuff up. And fiction is more fun than training guides and lesson plans.

When she isn’t writing, Tricia is busy crossing dreams off her bucket list. With all 50 states checked, she’s concentrating on foreign interests. She’s an avid St. Louis Cardinals fan, so don’t get between her and the television when a game is on. Currently, she is working on a mystery series set in the fictional town of Wickford, Missouri. Another project in the works is a women’s fiction road trip adventure.

Her essays have appeared in Sasee, ByLine, The Cuivre River Anthology, and Great American Outhouse Stories; The Whole Truth and Nothing Butt. She is a proud member of The Lit Ladies, six women writing their truths into fiction.
