A Death in Dulcinea
Retired school librarian Darby Matheson can't seem to avoid getting tangled in other people's problems. Maybe it's because socialite and volunteer extraordinaire Willemina shanghais her for every charity event in town. Maybe it's because the lure of former fashion model Ariana's ongoing marital melodrama is too strong to resist. Maybe it's because after twenty-seven years of marriage, she's got more to say to others than to her quiet husband; Thurman would rather listen to the hum of his band saw than to her anyway. But, most likely, it's because she purposefully tunes out her sixth sense. Whatever the reason, outgoing, warmhearted, intuitive Darby gets wrapped up in her first murder investigation in her hometown of Dulcinea, Texas, when a woman she is less than fond of is found strangled to death and Darby's former student is accused. But Darby knows there is no way Isaac Molina committed murder even if he has always been a "hot-headed, trouble-making, bound-to-drop-out kid."
