I was intrigued by this book after reading the sample chapter. I love strong woman books and this fit the bill to a T. It was an inspiring story about a woman that has enough of her abusive husband and pays it forward. She delcares herself the protector of woman. It was a good read that makes you cheer for her to win, no matter the methods. I enjoyed this and will be searchig out the other books in this series.

Ms. Littlefield has crafted a gem of a story. From Stella Hardesty to the people populating Prosper, the characters pop off the page. Stella, a domestic violence survivor teaches abusive men to behave.....or else. I laughed and cried from page 1 to The End.

I enjoyed this book quite a bit. The premis was a little off-beat and fun. I enjoyed and connected with the main character because of her age and down to earth out look. Great summer escapism.

In Missouri, after several years of abuse from Ollie Hardesty and not believing in divorce, Stella took care of business. The widow opens up a sewing shop and could wear a T-shirt that says "I survived domestic violence the old fashion way by burying my spouse". Stella also believes she needs to help battered women like she was as a form of redemption for putting up with Ollie much too long and as an avenging angel dispatching retribution on these bullies. Stella keeps an eye on Roy Dean Shaw, ex mean ass husband of gentle mom Chrissy Shaw. When Roy Dean abducts Chrissy's two years old son Tucker, Stella decides this punk needs a permanent lesson in how to treat a lady. She affirms her feelings about this abusive moron when she learns he is part of the stolen auto parts mob. Chrissy, upset with his taking her infant, has had enough. As Sheriff Goat Jones watches Stella with his dreamy eyes, she hopes it is for her body and not her activity asshe leads Chrissy into hell as they team up to take care of Roy Dean and his car ring associates to rescue the baby from the mob. This is an enjoyable jocular frolic as middle aged Stella takes on the world with no looking back as to whom she runs over when she does. She makes the tale work although the rest of the key cast members are fully drawn especially Chrissy and Roy Dean. The latter will soon learn what the wrath of a lioness is as she and her sidekick kick butt to rescue the infant. A BAD DAY FOR SORRY is a good day or three for readers. Harriet Klausner

A Bad Day for Sorry rides on the wings of two main features: a fresh, original voice, and a unique protagonist in Stella Hardesty. Stella's stats might make you think "cozy" at first -- a divorced, middle-aged woman who's an amateur detective -- but there's absolutely nothing cozy about Stella or her work. Having dispatched her abusive husband with a wrench, Stella now adjusts the attitudes of wife-beating lowlifes around Prosper, Missouri. Naturally, this gets her involved in things she hadn't bargained for. If you can imagine Justified with a sense of humor and told from Mags' point of view, you wouldn't be too far off the mark. The characters and dialog are spot-on; you can clearly hear the twangs and see the unfortunate fashion choices and feel the rhythms of life in a place far from the usual big-city settings. The finale threatens to spin out of control into Robert Crais territory, but Littlefield manages to pull it back just in time to maintain the integrity of the story and preserve Stella for her next two adventures. Y'all check it out, y'hear?
