News and Reviews...
“In Teresa Trent’s second book for the Swinging Singles Series, she once again offers a unique story with an engaging cast of characters. Dot Morgan, devasted after witnessing a presidential assassination, steps into a new job, and loses a trusted ally while remaining innocent and flexing to understand the opportunities 1963 offers women. A must-read for any reader who enjoys stepping back into the ‘swinging sixties.’” — Terry Korth Fischer, Author of the Rory Naysmith Mystery Series
“In author Teresa Trent’s If I Had a Hammer, President John F. Kennedy’s shocking 1963 assassination triggers a sea change in a young eye-witness. Returning to a small-town secretarial job, the heroine becomes entangled in local murder investigations. While trying to solve the crimes, she realizes new possibilities and potential. This mystery’s a nostalgic treat for babyboomers.” — Linda Lovely, author of the HOA Mysteries
“Mix great music, bellbottoms, and counterculture in with one of the most turbulent times in American history for a groovy setting full of peace, love, and of course, a murder that turns secretary, Dot Morgan’s life upside down. She has to solve the mystery before someone else ends up dead. Trent’s latest, If I Had a Hammer, the second in her Swinging Sixties Mysteries, is a twisty mystery and a fun trip back to a generation that changed everything.” — Heather Weidner, Author of the Jules Keene Glamping Mysteries and the Mermaid Bay Christmas Shoppe Mysteries
