Author Donna Huston Murrayabout this book: For FOR BETTER OR WORSE I assigned amateur sleuth Ginger Barnes a do-it-yourself project in her newlywed daughter's first house. Outgoing and emphatic as ever, Gin soon becomes involved with both next-door neighbors' problems.

Maisie Zumstein's grandson Eric moved in to save money and care for his elderly relative. Yet when Maisie falls down the stairs, it's Gin she trusts, not Eric. Is it possible the fall was attempted murder?

Cissie is a frazzled first-time mother with a controlling, short-tempered husband. When she needs a dresser carried upstairs, Gin brings Eric along to do the heavy lifting. Sparks ignite between the two new acquaintances, and Cissie's husband learns about the potential threat from his neighborhood spy. Once again, Gin's good intentions appear to have backfired.

My research into abusive partners educated me about a problem one in four women will experience in their lifetime. By weaving what I learned into the plot of a cozy mystery, I hoped to discreetly alert female readers to some, often surprising, information they may actually need. Sneaky, I admit, but well-intentioned. Sound familiar?

FOR BETTER OR WORSE was shortlisted for the Chanticleer International Mystery & Mayhem Book Award and became a Finalist for the National Indie Excellence Award in mysteries.
