Talk about an effective and eye-catching book cover and title. I saw this book over the weekend at a local bookstore, and I had to pick it up to see what it's all about.
A Bad Day For Sorry is a crime novel by Sophie Littlefield. It features a 50-something main character, Stella, who's a widow and survivor of domestic violence. While maintaining a business on one side of town in central Missouri, on the other side of town she's solving crimes and coming to the aid of domestic violence survivors.
After coming home and doing a little online research, I found that all the reviews of this novel have been positive. There's mad-love for Stella's grit and toughness. And this is the first of an ongoing series featuring Stella -- next book, A Bad Day For Pretty, coming in June 2010.
