Life comes with stipulations.If you want to fit into last year’s swimsuit, you can’t eat ice cream and a Gennydoodle cookie after every meal.If you want to go to Heaven, you can’t raise Hell on Saturday night and show up in the church pew on Sunday morning, hungover and reeking of cheap perfume.And if you want your hundred-year-old mansion completely updated and remodeled for free, you have to sacrifice.Stipulations, my child.-Granny Bert CessnaNow that Madison Reynolds has agreed to be part of a reality-television home remodeling show, she barely recognizes her own life. The show is an instant success, bringing cameras and reporters right to her doorstep, eager to chronicle her every move in the small Texas town. With In a Pinch Temporary Services hovering on the thin line between prosperity and extinction, Madison takes on another quirky case, this one concerning a property dispute. Complications turn a simple mission into all-out danger, and once again Madison finds herself embroiled in an intriguing mystery. Between her cantankerous grandmother, a moody teenage daughter, an ever-starving son, townspeople eager to grab their fifteen minutes of fame at her expense, and a mother-in-law appalled by her undignified foray into the public eye, Madison had her hands full, long before the skeleton was discovered. Now work is interrupted at the Big House, ghost stories abound, more secret passages have been unearthed, and someone is trying to scare her away from her new home. What she needs is another session of Brash deCordova’s unique ‘river therapy’… not to mention the kiss that eludes them with frustrating regularity. What she gets is another round of stipulations and complications. Here’s what readers are saying about this popular new amateur sleuth series that delivers clean romance, humor, and true-to-life characters in a small town setting, without sacrificing action-packed excitement and suspense. “This is one of my new favorite authors. I can't wait till the third book comes out.”"I love this The Sisters, Texas Mystery Series and Stipulations and Complications is my favorite book so far!"“I loved the book and can't wait to read the next one in this series. I am not a big fan of mystery, but there is way more to this book than that alone. The mystery was excellent, but mostly I loved the part about small town life, families, and friends in The Sisters. There is so much to this book would be hard to put it all in this review and I just don't like giving away any of the story. I will tell you this, however, it is about going home...who says you can't go home again? A lot of humor and love of families and friends made this book very special. Thanks Becki.”“This is not the kind of book that I would normally read, but it sounded good so I decided to give it a try. I am so glad that I did. From the very beginning I couldn't put it down. The story flowed along and characters were so likeable. It was so wonderful to find an author who knows that you don't need to use bad language and sex to sell a book. I would recommend this book to anyone young and old. Thank you Becki Willis.”"I really love this series! Stipulations and Complications had the right amount of everything: mystery, romance, comedy and of course, a dead body."“Another hoorah for Becki Willis! I loved the setting of rural Texas and the characters. They were well developed and the story line kept me guessing until the last page. I look forward to learning more about the main characters past and future in the Sisters!”“Once again the characters of The Sisters, Texas have won my heart. When the Stars Fall was even better than Chicken Scratch! I hope this series is intended to be a long one.”
