Overview

What happens to an unhappy woman who leaves her husband only to discover that she may have just made a terrible mistake? So horrible, her choice threatens to end her very life?

Susan believes that the grass is greener on the other side. Not that her current life is bad, necessarily; it's just boring and lifeless, kind of like the old matted rug on her dining room floor. Susan thinks her marriage has just grown - well, old. Her husband, Bob, has gained tremendous weight and continues to gain, and his health suffers. She must work at a job she hates full-time to provide the little sustenance they have. He, on the other hand, works very little (because of his health) and prefers spending his days watching television or surfing the Internet. Besides, there's her problem of not getting pregnant that can't help but contribute to his unhappiness.

Can Susan continue to live her life at the hotel knowing that she might be killed herself or imprisoned for life? Will she be able to find the real murderer with the help of the eccentric Ms. Martha Boaz?

Meet the Author

Before Kathryn was one, she loved to read books-or at least pretend to. She couldn't walk yet but would crawl to the bottom shelf to get what she wanted. Her grandma says that Kathryn's books were placed near the floor for that very reason, and her mother remembers Kathryn pulling her favorite book from the shelf and crawling back to the couch, the book safely in tow. Sitting on the couch, Kathryn would pretend to read, speaking the language of some foreign diplomat-or, perhaps, the tongue of angels (her mother wasn't quite sure which)-and when she was done, Kathryn would crawl back to the shelf for another story.

When Kathryn isn't writing she is reading. As a young mystery reader Kathryn enjoyed the antics of Nancy Drew, and spent her days dreaming about what she wanted to be when she grew up.

Kathryn has been a published writer since 1987; her work includes various newspaper and magazine articles for teens and adults, and four books. "Scrambled," is her first cozy mystery.

    A great cozy mystery novel - Very Enjoyable Read

    Susan Cramer, a woman on the run from her husband, takes a job as a housekeeper in a rundown hotel to make some money to pay for her new life. She finds friends that she isn’t ready to trust and a dead body in the boiler room. Her determination to succeed in her new life is admirable even if she doesn’t always make the ethical choice. This is about a woman getting to know herself again.

    In this novel, Kathryn Elizabeth Jones brings to life complex characters in a mystery where you can never be sure who to trust. The twists and turns are fantastic. Susan is not your normal amateur sleuth but many readers will relate to her. The author has a unique voice all her own. I’m looking forward to the next one in the series. A very enjoyable read.
