Best-selling crime author Mike Rice - or Miz Mike to her friends - is by nature inquisitive. (Or meddling, to her friends.) She also has a heart of compassion that gets her into trouble time and again, and her inability to really hear what God is saying to her doesn't help! So when a beautiful young stranger begs her to investigate the death of her sister, Mike is soon not-too-reluctantly embroiled in a mystery that involves the whole town of Three Prongs. She finds herself rapidly immersed in the illicit subculture in Texas Hill County - from dog fights to kidnappings, jealousy and murder - and her life is thrown into chaos as she takes in two troubled youngsters, to boot. And that's without the animals thrown in!
Mike's crazy crush on the town heart-throb, retired film star and rodeo champion Marty Richards, fuels her impossible fantasies about the two of them hooking up. But when he does finally ask her out, her need to track down culprits and bring them to justice gets in the way every time. Will they finally settle on a date and keep it? And more importantly, will Mike's M&M fantasies ever grow roots in a real relationship?
BRIDGE TO NOWHERE is the first book in the Miz Mike series.

Bridge to Nowhere introduces Michael Rice (Miz Mike, to her friends), a mystery writer who wants nothing more than to mind her own business, dream about her secret heartthrob Marty, and play the M&M game. In spite of her best efforts, Miz Mike continuously gets herself into “pickles,” as her friend Marty calls them. When a strange woman approaches her with a claim that her sister had been murdered – a local woman thought to have died in a tragic explosion -- Miz Mike can’t help but start investigating. In the course of her search, she stumbles across the bridge that leads nowhere, as well as a disappearing dog-fighting operation. She winds up taking into her house Nat, a young man struggling with alcoholism; Jared, a troubled teen with nowhere else to go; and Clint, a local man who lives in his own slow, unique world. Even as Miz Mike tries to mind her own business, evil is afoot in the small town of Three Prongs, evil such as this small town could never have imagined. When Miz Mike’s youngest grandson, Ryan, is kidnapped, Miz Mike has to rely on her faith and God’s ability to help her sort out the puzzle and save her grandson. Bridge to Nowhere is filled with a cast of unforgettable characters, humor, and surprising plot twists that keep you guessing to the end. And for those readers who find themselves in “Miz Mike withdrawal” after finishing this book, the second in the series should soon be available.
