* *   Reviewed by Lyn Seippel

Hardesty Sewing Machine Sales and Repair does a languid business, just like it did before Stella Hardesty killed her husband. But her real business is convincing abusive husbands and boyfriends to lay off their wives and girlfriends.

If they don't, they soon learn that her justice is swift and fair. It is also painful. Funny how little pain abusive husbands can stand when they're taking it, not giving it. As a survivor of domestic violence, Stella's not into second chances.

When Chrissy Shaw comes to her for help with Roy Dean, the father of her two-year-old son Tucker, Stella figures she has an easy case. Reminding Dean once, then twice to leave Chrissy and the boy alone should have been enough. So why did he grab the child? Dean hangs out with some scary men which complicates things.

She's gutsy, menopausal, and a friend of Johnny Walker Red - Stella's life's work isn't what you'd expect for a Minnesota widow. In her, Littlefield has created a character you won't forget.
