Life is easier withy a good pair of running shoes
After her life was downsized by a divorce and a pink slip, Zoey Jones moved back home to Blytheville, Missouri. Now tending bar at her uncle's watering hole, Zoey is working overtime to keep her rebellious teenage daughter and her eccentric parents out of trouble.
Naturally, Blytheville's sexy top cop Hank Westlake picks this time to start rekindling old fires. But their tentative first date is a bust — literally — when hank is forced to book Zoey's own father for murder. Sure, Charlie has been acting strange lately, but could he really be the bumbling burglar behind three convenience-store robberies? Actually, yes. . .but he has a very good reason. And did he murder clerk Joe Donny in cold blood? No. Not a chance.
Determined to find the real killer, Zoey begins her own investigation, knowing that in life, and in love, it's good to stay on your toes and ahead of the game.
When Zoey Jones' life is downsized by a divorce and a pink slip, she returns to her hometown. As if keeping her rebellious daughter in line and working overtime tending bar isn't enough, her old flame, cop Hank Westlake, charges Zoey's father with murder. Original.
