USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR
Haunted houses are scary enough without knife-wielding clowns. Especially murderous knife-wielding clowns. So thinks Ellison Russell, single mother, artist, and reluctant sleuth.
Now death wears a red nose and Ellison is up to the blood-stained collar of her new trench coat in costumes, caffeine, and possible killers. Who stabbed Brooks Harney? And why? Money? Jealousy? Drugs?
With Mother meddling, her father furious, and her date dragged downtown for questioning, turns out Ellison’s only confidante is Mr. Coffee.
If someone were to ask me what Send in the Clowns is about, I’d tell them, “Women finding their power—and murder.”
Ellison Russell has spent most of her life being safe and protected. Now a single mother, she has the opportunity to take risks, to stand on her own, to own her life.
The problem is that almost everyone in her life would like her to stay safe. Even her mother. Especially her mother.
“Ellison, we want you safe. Just like you want to keep Grace safe.”
I wanted Grace to be safe but I didn’t want her to be packed in cotton until she found a man to take care of her. I wanted her to have a life. I wanted a life. On my own terms. “I appreciate the sentiment. I do. But I’m not going to apologize or consign myself to marriage just so I can have a man take care of me.”
The book is also about murderous clowns, mothers, daughters, coffee (of course coffee), fathers, friends, and the long-term scars of making a child wear a coat over his or her Halloween costume.
