One dead body, one interrupted marriage proposal, and too many suspects to count.
On the night of her engagement, Rae Lynn Dobbs stumbles across a dead body on the beach of White Sands, Florida. Not only does she recognize the murder victim as one of the retirement-home residents where she serves dinner, but it looks increasingly likely that someone there also killed him.
To her fiancé’s dismay, Rae Lynn launches her own investigation. Between the gossipy widows, the home’s last surviving bachelor, and her coworkers, Rae Lynn doesn’t have any shortage of suspects. But the more she learns, the more it seems anyone could be guilty. And if she doesn’t find out “whodunit” quickly, her fiancé might just become fed up enough to leave.

About the Author

Marla Bradeen previously worked as a software consultant and analyst. In 2012, she gave up a traditional job for no other reason than to have more time to pursue personal interests, such as sleeping in late and taking naps. Although she misses seeing regular deposits into her bank account, she hasn’t once regretted that decision.
She didn’t initially intend to begin writing novels, but after several weeks of doing nothing, she realized sleeping all day isn’t as easy or enjoyable as her cats led her to believe. Over the ensuing months, she wrote Lethal Injection, which she self-published in 2013.

  1. When you start a book, do you have all the characters in place and an ending planned, or does it come to you as you write?

    1. Hi, Peggy. I start writing before I've figured out all the characters and the ending. Usually the characters take over the story at some point. They can be very demanding!

  2. I like this last line
    "And if she doesn’t find out “whodunit” quickly, her fiancé might just become fed up enough to leave."
    it made me smile. If this is an indication of how entertaining the rest of the book is, then it will be a great read.

  3. I guess finding a dead body would certainly guarantee that she never forgets her marriage proposal!
