Loose Screw Cover Art

Dusty Deals Mysteries, Book 1

Loose Screw

Lucy avoids confrontation like a home perm.

She even lets a cat shove her around.

Her dog too.

What about a killer?

Lucy trips over the body of a buckskin-clad relics trader, and soon she finds herself directly in the path of a killer and the exasperating, if attractive, detective in charge.

Will Lucy go along to get along now?

Or will she go out on a limb to find the killer, save her business, her friends, and her dog?

Can she catch the killer or is this the last confrontation for her—period?

You’ll love this comic cozy mystery with quirky characters, lots of laughs, a lovable dog, and just enough romance to add some spice to Lucy’s life and yours.

What the Critics Say

Delightful “Just a plain FUN read. Funny, but never to that place where it is over the top and begins to feel contrived. Really enjoyed this book and was disappointed when I couldn’t find more by this author.” —Abilene333, Barnes & Noble reviewer

Loved it!!! “I love cozy mysteries with humor and romance and this one fits the bill! Great storyline, mix of characters, and laugh-out-loud humor! Can hardly wait for the next one!!!” —Terri D, Amazon reviewer

Great 1st Book “I just finished reading Loose Screw by Rae Davies. Truthfully I could not put it down. I enjoyed every minute of reading about Lucy. … It was funny, informative & entertaining. The whole package in one great read. I am so looking forward to the next book in this series.” —threecentsshort, Barnes & Noble reviewer
