WRY HUMOR AND A CLEVERLY WOVEN MYSTERY...



Fit to Be Dead has it all: intriguing characters that point to romance, an engrossing plot, a compelling puzzle and well-disguised clues—a fun read.” – L. C. Hayden, Award-Winning Author of the Harry Bronson Mystery series



Sub-genre tags: Humorous Mystery, Amateur Sleuths, Contemporary Cozy, Women Sleuths, Southern Mystery



Aggie Mundeen, single and pushing forty, fears nothing but middle age. When she moves from Chicago to San Antonio, she decides she better shape up before anybody discovers she writes the column, “Stay Young with Aggie.” She takes Aspects of Aging at the University of the Holy Trinity and plunges into exercise at Fit and Firm. 


Rusty at flirting and mechanically inept, she irritates a slew of male exercisers, then stumbles into murder. She’d like to impress the attractive detective with her sleuthing skills. But when the killer comes after her, the health club evacuates semi-clad patrons, and the detective has to stall his investigation to save Aggie’s derriere.


Praise for FIT TO BE DEAD:



“West’s fine writing and clever plot reveal her mad sense of humor...She has produced a beautifully written book, brimming with wry humor, and a cleverly woven mystery. Highly recommended!

Author Bio:  


Nancy G. West’s poem, “Time to Lie,” was featured by Theme and Variations and broadcast on NPR. For three years, she wrote Book Shelf, the book column for San Antonio Woman magazine as well as articles for other publications.


But a funny thing happened as she finished Nine Days to Evil, her award-winning novel of psychological suspense, Shakespeare, and nonstop-action. A supporting character, Aggie Mundeen, with her wry sense of humor, took over West's consciousness and demanded that West write a book about her…or maybe a series. The result, Fit to Be Dead, was 2013 finalist for the Lefty Award for Best Humorous Mystery. Next came Dang Near Dead, and West is currently at work revealing Aggie’s third and fourth romantic mystery adventures. Aggie is pleased.

Fit to be Dead

I almost didn't finish reading this novel, I had too many questions that weren't being addressed as quickly as I would have preferred. Fortunately, I preserved and finished it. My questions were answered or mostly answered. Never guessed the evil doer. And love her quirky sense of humor. Too bad she isn't a neighbor, I'd love to visit with her over a Coke. So, I did the next best thing! I downloaded book 2 of the Aggie/Sam/Meredith/Grace friendship. My husband is deaf so I can laugh into the night and not disturb him... Thanks Nancy for a fun Cosy Mystery series!
