Is the Holy Pail cursed? Every owner of the vintage Chappy Wheeler lunchbox--a prototype based on the 1940s TV western--has died. And now Sterling Price, business tycoon and a client of Odelia Grey's law firm, has been fatally poisoned. Is it a coincidence that Price's one-of-a-kind lunch pail--worth over thirty grand--has disappeared at the same time?

Treading cautiously since a recent run-in with a bullet, Odelia takes small bites of this juicy, calorie-free mystery--and is soon ravenous for more Her research reveals a sixty-year-old unsolved murder and Price's gold-digging ex-fianc e with two married men wrapped around her breasts...uh, finger. Mix in a surprise marriage proposal that sends an uncertain Odelia into chocolate sedation, and you've got an unruly recipe for delicious disaster.

Even better than her first...a major hoot --Thomas B. Sawyer, bestselling author of TheSixteenth Man, former head writer/producer of Murder, She Wrote

Odelia Gray is a wonderful addition to the mystery genre, a smart, funny, engaging plus-size heroine who takes readers on a plus-size ride.

If I were in trouble, I'd want Odelia on my side.--Denise Hamilton, Edgar and Willa Cather Award-finalist and national bestselling author of Prisoner of Memory

More fun than a lunch pail full of plump paralegals, The Curse of the Holy Pail is a tale as bouncy as its bodacious protagonist.--Bill Fitzhugh, author of Highway 61 and Resurfaced
