Murdered at the Courthouse: A Midwest Cozy Mystery by [Harman, Dianne]Some experts say the honeymoon phase of a marriage lasts for about six months, but they didn’t take murder into account!

When the county judge is murdered and Kat’s District Attorney husband of far less than six months, is not only a suspect, but now the lead attorney in another murder case, Kat has to find the killer to clear his name.

Who knew the judge was addicted to watching computer porn? But was that the reason he was murdered?
Was the killer the judge’s “unusual” wife who spent millions building a castle in the middle of Kansas and then filling the moat around the castle with alligators? Or the head of Mothers Against Pornography Addiction? Could it have been the woman who was having an affair with the judge? Or her husband? After all, he did attend Rageaholics meetings. Or even the young sorority girl who was making a lot of money appearing on porn sites?

Sometimes a guard dog is just as important as a former Green Beret, and Kat was grateful to both of them when they saved her life!

Another fast-paced cozy murder mystery with food, dogs, and recipes from a USA Today and Amazon Chart #1 Bestselling Author.

As always, free with Kindle Unlimited.  (Amazon)
