Editorial Reviews

Harriet Klausner
"MURDER IS THE PITS is a delightful funny crime caper that will have readers laughing out loud as the protagonists cope with three hurricanes, two different crime groups, and a reunion of friends where everyone is on edge at one point or another. Mary Clay treats the situations very seriously but she injects humor in the way the characters cope with death threats, life threatening storms and a gang war. In tense situations, humor is used to relieve stress, which allows readers to find the storyline totally believable. The friendship of the forty-something women is the glue that holds the story together. This delightfully, charming tale will win the author many new fans."
The Readers Guild, The "Book Review" Forum
Shelley Glodowski
"Mary Clay has done it again! She has produced a hilarious pre-menopausal combination of divorced women who band together in thick and thin. The combination of Leigh's level-headedness, Penny Sue's sashays and wine guzzling, with Ruthie's forays into the New Age spirit world is enough to brighten any reader's day. The women splash money and daffodil symbols around to raise funds for hurricane relief and climb into race cars to gain national attention, all the while protecting themselves from Russian and Italian mafia. Clay's own particular brand of the psychology of human nature reflected in the DAFFODILS will have the readers rolling in the aisles. A triumph!"
