Polly Pepper is a living legend, straight from television's golden age, complete with the star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame. But these days, it seems her only time in the spotlight is accepting some yes-your-career-is-over Lifetime Achievement Award. Really, would it kill someone to offer her a decent role?
The Cowboy Who Caught Her Eye
The Shopkeeper's ShamePregnant and unmarried, Molly Thorson knows her livelihood is under threat. The last thing she needs is a distracting cowboy swaggering into view. Especially one who knows she has a secret and still looks at her with desire in his eyes.The Cowboy's SecretCarter…
It kind of looks that way when the untimely death of her dear friend, Trixie Wilder, opens up a part in the blockbuster teen musical Detention Rules. . .but as a grandmother?! Although she's completely insulted, Polly knows she should audition, especially when she reads in Daily Variety about who else is being considered: Sedra Stone, her rival who stole Polly's second husband – and her third. When Sedra gets the role, Polly is incensed, but not for long. Because soon Sedra is dead after falling from a diving platform into an empty pool. . .
Now it's up to Polly to solve Sedra's murder and see to it that someone will be starring in a real-life drama, tentatively titled Life Without Parole. . .
"What if Carol Burnett had starred in Murder She Wrote?
