Overview

Welcome to the Future Widows’ Club—a secret society of women who’ ve been treated like trash by their no-good husbands and prefer waiting for widowhood over divorce. But sometimes waiting can be murder….

Jolie Marshall’ s husband Chris is definitely no good. He conned Jolie into “ I do” —and her mother out of her life’ s savings! Now Jolie is sticking out the marriage—with a little help from the Future Widows’ Club—while she gathers evidence to send him to prison.

Then Chris is murdered—and Jolie’ s the prime suspect. And her alibi, a meeting of the FWC, isn’ t likely to convince anybody of her innocence. But when she discovers the detective on the case is Jake Malone—the man Jolie ditched to marry Chris—she knows she’ s really in trouble. Because all of a sudden, she’ s thinking that a life sentence wouldn’ t be too bad…with him!

Meet the Author



Rhonda can't remember when she hasn't had her nose buried in a book, and most likely, her husband can't, either. Though she took several creative writing courses in college, she never considered a career in writing until her mother pointed out--as mothers are everlastingly wont to do--that she should give it a try. Thus, after giving up her dream of becoming an intergalactic princess or a mermaid--it was a toss-up because both are so cool--an author was born! (Thank you, Momma.)

Rhonda married her very own hero many moons ago, and she and her family make their home in a small town in northern Alabama. Between volunteering at her children's school (she's practicing a new word called "no") and the typical glamorous duties of a domestic goddess (does it ever end?), she escapes into her office where it's safe to talk to the voices in her head, to tell their stories, and hopefully to entertain her readers. If you like a little giggle amid the sizzle, then her books just might be for you.

Rhonda Nelson always delivers! With her signature blend of sass, humor and southern charm you can't go wrong.

Southern humor meets southern smart in this part murder mystery, part romantic comedy. The widows of the small town of Bless Her Heart find it easy to laugh at death--especially when the man in question needed killing. The earlier version of this book was Rhonda Nelson at her best but her best got better in this this updated reissued edition. I can't wait to take another trip to Bless Her Heart in the next book in this series.

I'm a huge fan of Rhonda Nelson's work, but this is by far my favorite. It's the best of Nelson - her humor, her storytelling and her trademark sizzle. So glad to see this available again for Nook!

The title is more interesting than the novella itself.

I laughed, cried, turned pages in suspense..... I've never read Mrs. Nelson's "harlequin" type books, but her romantic comedies are wonderful!

In Moon Valley, Jolie Marshal regrets marrying charming SOB Chris who embezzled money from their company leaving friends and her mother potentially in the lurch. When she can pay back her ¿creditors¿, she will divorce Chris, who she married when vulnerable following the death of her father and rejection by her boyfriend Jake, who was not ready for a wife.................... The Future Widows¿ Club invites Jolie to join their group. Finding solace, she agrees and begins following some of the rules like taking out life insurance on her spouse. However, someone was irate when they shot Chris in the heart and cut off his penis. Could it be Sheriff Dean who has pictures of his wife with Chris? Or Police Officer Jake who is livid that this worm hit Jolie, the woman he still loves and regrets he let down? Or perhaps the grieving widow who just took out insurance on the rat?....................... THE FUTURE WIDOWS¿ CLUB is a strange dark humorous romance with police procedural elements to add excitement to the question of who killed Chris. The story line initially appears to be one of an abused spouse but switches gear once the merry widows invite Jolie to join. Rhonda Nelson writes a strong satirical dark look at society that accepts plenty of abusive ¿values¿ under the label of protecting the family.................. Harriet Klausner
