The Fog Ladies: Family Matters

A San Francisco Cozy Murder Mystery, Book 2

The Fog Ladies:  Family Matters is a traditional cozy murder mystery with suspicious senior sleuths and an overworked young doctor set in San Francisco and along the beautiful, wild, treacherous California coast.

Till death do us part, with kitchen shears. What drives a family man to kill his wife? This question haunts Sarah James, a medical resident who meets the unhappy family at a resort near Big Sur. She witnesses how ugly a marriage can be. But murder?

Sarah and the spunky Fog Ladies—elderly neighbors from her San Francisco apartment building—set out to discover the truth. Their probing finds the threat is perilously close to home, endangering another troubled family struggling to survive.
