A Sylvia Avery Mystery

Those frolicsome geriatric belly-dancing widows of the North Beach Peninsula are looking for love again, and Sylvia Avery is recruited to help them navigate the hoops, hurdles, and hustles of online dating.

While Sylvia thinks it’s a lot like trying to herd cats, Sheriff Donaldson is working overtime passing out pepper spray and warning the ladies not to send money to these internet guys.

Meanwhile, Deputy Freddy Morgan and Kanjirappally Kumera are still wooing Sylvia, and The Veiled Rainbow is pressuring her to “make a decision, already!”

Love is in the air, online and elsewhere, but Sheriff D’s background checks reveal that a few of these fellows are up to no good. Can they be stopped before someone gets killed?
