About Bridge to Nowhere by Stephanie McKean
When son Ron orders his chocolate-loving widowed mother, Michal Allison Rice—better known as “Miz Mike” in Three Prongs, Texas, where misfits fit—to act her age and mind her own business, he doesn’t understand that Miz Mike doesn’t find mysteries—they find her. So do romance and adventure.
Mike is diligently penning her latest mystery novel when a lovely young girl interrupts, begging Mike to find her sister’s killer. Mike tries to explain that she doesn’t solve crimes, she writes about them. Unable to withstand the young girl’s tears, Mike gears her compassion for action and sets out to solve the murder. When she solves it, no one will believe her and she nearly becomes the next victim.
Adding to Miz Mike’s heartbreak, she nearly loses her secret love, ex-Hollywood cowboy star Marty Richards, to the murderer — who proves to be a murderess. Collecting unwanted, unloved and unlovely human misfits the way some folks collect stray dogs, Mike further endangers her nascent relationship with Marty when she installs three young, single men on her ranch in an effort to help them. But nothing including the loss of Marty’s affection and the life-threatening events she faces in her ineffectual attempt to mind her own business test Mike’s faith in God more than the kidnapping of her youngest grandson.
God always gets the last laugh. One of the men in Miz Mike’s collection, Clint Flavors, who some locals disparage for having an elevator that halts between the floors of his mind, helps solve the mystery of the Bridge to Nowhere and recover Miz Mike’s kidnapped grandson.
Challenges remain even after the mystery is solved. Can the slightly overweight “forties-something” Mike, who nearly always minds her own business, indulge her non-chocolate passion for the delectable Marty? Or will he always remain just out of her reach—sort of like that yellow M&M that rolled beneath the sofa?
