The second in the acclaimed Jennifer Marsh mystery series!

Unpublished author and reluctant amateur detective Jennifer Marsh doesn't know how she keeps finding herself in the middle of a murder. Okay, the first one was her fault (she framed herself) but this one is just bad luck: catching her good friend, Emmie Walker standing over her dead ex-husband, Edgar, holding a bloody knife.

Jennifer's sure Emmie is innocent. She's a sweet senior citizen who is way too smart to do something so stupid. So what if she has motive (her former husband was loaded and she'd gain ownership over his successful chain of restaurants) and opportunity (found holding a knife over his body)? She's not the only one.
Edgar Walker was not a nice man. People were probably standing in line to murder him. The question is who got to him first?

With help from her quirky writer's group; gorgeous, cranky reporter Sam; and her own fictional heroine Maxie Malone, Jennifer's determined to get to the bottom of this... before Emmie's convicted based on Jennifer's own eyewitness testimony.

"...one of the funniest new mystery authors since Janet Evanovich....see why mystery fans are still laughing!"
–-Meritorious Mysteries

" Fitzwater once again offers an entertaining read."
–-Publishers Weekly

"Dying to Get Even is a satisfying yarn that develops Jennifer Marsh as someone to reckon with, in spite of herself."
–-The Mystery Reader

"In Dying to Get Even are the seeds of a very funny parody of genre writing....Jennifer and her friends are a genial bunch...and one can't help but root for them."
–-Bill Peschel, Rock Hill Herald

PLOT OR PREMISE: Jennifer Marsh is back with her reporter boyfriend. This time, her elder friend Emmie Walker is in trouble: Jennifer finds her standing next to the dead body of Edgar Walker, with the murder weapon in her hand. . WHAT I LIKED: The rambling around by all of the characters is great. As usual, Jennifer's writing group throw themselves in to help her investigate all the goings-on at Edgar's Down Home Grill, complete with a special sauce that may be to-die-for. . WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: The storyline jumps around a bit in time at the start. It might have read a lot better in normal linear fashion rather than the resulting stilted jumping. Its only the first few chapters though, so it doesn't overly hurt the story. . BOTTOM-LINE: Even better than the first in the series . DISCLOSURE: I received no compensation, not even a free copy, in exchange for this review. I am not personal friends with the author, but I have interacted with her on social media.
