Rona Shively’s life IS full of surprises. As a private investigator, she finds herself in more trouble than she bargained for when she takes on a missing person’s case: looking for an ex-wife who has changed her lifestyle drastically. As though that did not present enough trouble, Rona escapes murder by a thread until it finally surprises her ‘In the Wash’–room that is. During all her difficulties, Rona faces a chance for love. Will her tendency not to trust anyone keep her from this very aspect of life a woman desires so badly?

I liked Rona Shively because she is so down-to-earth. She is so tough, but underneath that toughness lies a tender heart. The story is good, the plotting great. Rebecca Benston draws you into the story from the first page. Read the book. It is a delightful, but short, mystery.

Rebecca Benston is a freelance writer and poet. Born in Springfield, Ohio, Benston is both a graduate of Antioch University McGregor with a dual major in Management and Human Development and a graduate of Capella University with a Master’s degree in Human Services. Benston is a member of the Sisters In Crime Internet Chapter and a content producer for Associated Content.

The Wash: The Rona Shively Stories is her first mystery novella. In 2007, Benston plans to release the second installment in the series, titled Under Lock and Key: The Rona Shively Stories.
