Till Dirt Do Us Part is my seventh book in the Pecan Bayou Series and one I really enjoyed writing. I hadn’t written a Pecan Bayou novel in a couple of years, and the characters were like coming home. Of course, I kept up with them through my contributions to the Happy Homicides Anthologies where Betsy, the Happy Hinter has more murders to solve, in fewer pages. Till Dirt Do Us Part centered around gardening and yes, I’m an amateur, but quite an often-failing gardener.
What’s that line in Steel Magnolias? Older southern ladies are supposed to grow tomatoes? Weezer words to live by.

Artist Gabby Wolfe has the ability to see not only the beauty of the living but the despair of the dead. When she returns to her childhood home in Henry Park Colorado, she is forced to bring along her younger brother Mitch. He is on a “break” from college where he was majoring in wine, women, and song. If that isn’t enough they also have Mitch’s rambunctious beagle Luigi along who prefers to spend his days wallowing in junk food. When Gabby draws the death of a young woman before it happens, she knows she must tell someone and risk a new job and her professional credibility. Will she reveal her secret in time to save the woman in the water or will it be too late?
I have one more giveaway up my sleeve for Christmas. If you haven’t entered my Goodreads giveaway for a signed paperback copy of Murder for a Rainy Day-Here’s your chance! There are only five days left before the drawing, so get your name in now.
Murder for a Rainy Day was reviewed by Mysteries Etc! Here is a little of the review:
This is the sixth book in Teresa Trent’s Pecan Bayou series featuring amateur detective Betsy who also writes a column on handy hints for the local paper. She is also ready to pop…as in very very pregnant. And there is a hurricane coming. And her weather man husband wants to storm chase. Then there are the missing oversize animal replicas. Ghosts. And a murder. Lots happening in this fun fast read.
I spend so much time researching for Betsy Livingston’s occupation as a Happy Hinter, I decided to make her own fictional blog on WordPress! Click on the logo to go her blog. I will be including recipes and tips from the books and things I turn up in my research that might not have made it to Betsy’s pages. Check out The Happy Hinter.
