Stella Hardesty Crime Novels

Stella Hardesty dispatched her abusive husband with a wrench shortly before her fiftieth birthday. A few years later, she’s so busy delivering home-style justice, helping other women deal with their own abusive husbands and boyfriends, that she’s barely got time to run her sewing shop. Since Stella works outside of the law, she’s free to do whatever it takes to be convincing—as long as she keeps her distance from the handsome devil of a local sheriff, Goat Jones.

Sophie Littlefield’s standout crime series begins with A Bad Day for Sorry, winner of an Anthony Award for Best First Novel and an RT Book Award for Best First Mystery.
