Book DescriptionMeet Bonnie Marsden, a forty-five-year-old mother of four who hires herself out as a housekeeper when she loses her job as a loans officer in a small Nova Scotia town. But Bonnie ends up doing much more than housework as mystery, mayhem and murder abound in her home town of Membertou County. Each week brings a startling new case that needs cleaning up: a child with Downs Syndrome is found frozen to death in the woods; Bonnie's son Robbie is accused of vandalism; and the local game warden is found dead in his own kitchen.
So sit back, pour yourself a cup of coffee and enjoy the best of radio drama with eerie disappearances, unusual deaths, gripping plots, spinetingling suspense, and, of course, the smart sleuthing of Bonnie Marsden.
