Legal Tender by Sarita Leone Publisher: Whiskey Creek Press, September 2008
Lindy thinks she has it all. An exciting life in New York City. Career prospects. Men. And she does, too. That is, until Granny Walker is killed. Then, all bets are off.
To satisfy the terms of Granny’s will Lindy must step into her grandmother’s orthopedic shoes and assume her place on the family farm. She’ll have to uncover the mystery between a raging bull and a Mustang, all while finding a husband and fighting off a nasty cousin.
Life on the farm makes a white sale at Bloomie’s look like child’s play!
Can a woman who’s more comfortable in stilettos than boots move from the city to the country and still have everything she’s always dreamed of? Maybe she can—with some luck and a lot of help from Granny Walker herself.
You see, the wise-cracking, advice-giving ghost isn’t quite ready to give up the old homestead. Not yet, anyway.
After the sudden death of her grandmother, Lindy moves to upstate New York and as part of the inheritance works on the farm while finding a husband within the specified time or the farm would go to her money-hungry cousin who intends to sell. While accomplishing these two feats, Lindy’s granny continues to speak to her and guide her through life’s journey. When it was discovered that her grandmother’s car was tampered with, the hunt is on for the culprit with a surprise twist. This was a very good story with a hint of paranormal.
