Three cozy mysteries set in a small, eccentric Arkansas town where a divorcee is getting a fresh start as police chief. With her career and marriage gone bust, Arly Hanks leaves Manhattan behind for her small hometown of Maggody, Arkansas. She thought not much would happen after she became the town's first female police chief, but Maggody is full of surprises . . . Madness in Maggody: The mayor's supermarket opening gala is ruined when tainted tamales give twenty-three people food poisoning-and kill another. Now Arly must discover who messed with the Mexican food before someone else eats their last meal. Mortal Remains in Maggody: Arly's too busy to care about the Hollywood production crew in town-until an actors is found dead. Now Arly must catch the killer while the citizens of Maggody vie for their fifteen minutes of fame-even as the town burns down around them. Maggody in Manhattan: Arly returns to the Big Apple to accompany her mother to a baking contest. But when a man is found dead in her mother's hotel room, Arly is out to solve the case herself, facing down killers, bakers, and most frightening of all: her ex-husband.
