Aggie Mundeen, single and pushing forty, fears nothing but middle age. When she moves from Chicago to San Antonio, she decides she better shape up before anybody discovers she writes the column, "Stay Young with Aggie." She takes Aspects of Aging at University of the Holy Trinity and plunges into exercise at Fit and Firm.
Rusty at flirting and mechanically inept, she irritates a slew of male exercisers, then stumbles into murder. She'd like to impress the attractive detective with her sleuthing skills. But when the killer comes after her, the health club evacuates semi-clad patrons, and the detective has to stall his investigation to save Aggie's derriere.
Praise for FIT TO BE DEAD:
"Nancy G. West's fine writing and clever plot reveal her mad sense of humor...She has produced a beautifully written book, brimming with wry humor, and a cleverly woven mystery. Highly recommended! I am very pleased to see there is a follow-up Aggie Mundeen novel, Dang Near Dead." - Diana Hockley, Australian Mystery Novelist and International Reviewer for NetGalley and Kings River Life Magazine.
"West's main characters' histories suggest they could fill a series. I hope so. I love this book!" - Rollo K. Newsom PhD, Professor Emeritus, Texas State University, and an Editor of Lone Star Sleuths.
"Fit to Be Dead has it all: intriguing characters that point to romance, an engrossing plot, a compelling puzzle and well-disguised clues-a fun read." - L. C. Hayden, Award-Winning Author of the Harry Bronson Mystery series.
"Aggie Mundeen's wry observations on life, death, and the struggle to whip mind and body into shape make Fit to Be Dead delightful. Joining a health club has never been so dangerous...or so amusing." - Karen McCullough, Author of Shadow of a Doubt and A Question of Fire
