Blog Tour and Review - Fit to be Dead by Nancy G. West


Paperback: 280 pages
Publisher: Henery Press(July 29, 2014)
About the book:
Aggie Mundeen, single and pushing forty, fears nothing but middle age. When she moves from Chicago to San Antonio, she decides she better shape up before anybody discovers she writes the column, “Stay Young with Aggie.” She takes Aspects of Aging at University of the Holy Trinity and plunges into exercise at Fit and Firm.
Rusty at flirting and mechanically inept, she irritates a slew of male exercisers, then stumbles into murder. She’d like to impress the attractive detective with her sleuthing skills. But when the killer comes after her, the health club evacuates semi-clad patrons, and the detective has to stall his investigation to save Aggie’s derriere.


My review:
This is such a great storyline!  The health club setting is fun to read!
Aggie wants to get in shape, and decides to start going to a local gym.   She has no idea that she will be involved in a murder mystery!  Aggie asks a detective friend of hers to help her solve the mystery, but she also wants to help him figure out "who did it".  She is a strong determined woman, and I really liked her character.
 The story is intriguing, and I'm looking forward to the next book in this series!


About the author:
I’ve been writing since age seven: poems back and forth with my mom. I had a real poem published in the Library Journal, Pegasus, at age fifteen. At eighteen, I wanted to study journalism and English literature, but friends who chose that college route were making minimum wage or selling lingerie. Being practical, I earned a business degree. After marriage and two children, I decided I HAD to study literature and write. I wrote non-fiction articles, a biography, and a suspense novel in 2004. That’s when whimsical Aggie Mundeen cut through the suspense, popped into my head and demanded her own series. The Aggie Mundeen mystery capers were born. Aggie must have been right:FIT TO BE DEAD is a LEFTY FINALIST 2013 for best humorous mystery, nominated by Left Coast Crime.
