Come and meet Meg Jamison, a budding artist and widow who doesn’t want to admit that she might possibly need a hearing aid. After the art fair, Meg’s friend finds her bundle of money, she had been saving for some new frames, has been stolen. Meg and her college son, with no help from her nosey and pain in the neck sister-in-law, finally find the missing money.
Her favorite art professor murdered on campus. Unwanted radio voices sounding in her ears. And drug runners circling closer and closer.
Meg Jamison, a widow in her mid-fifties, a bit overweight and trying to paint colorful images for an upcoming art show, is terribly frustrated with her new hearing aid earrings. They just won’t work right. But when her youngest motorcycling son gets pulled into running drugs and all she has are broken frames for her artwork, the darn hearing aid turns out to be a lifesaver. Tracking down a killer, while fending off pesky calls from an overbearing sister-in-law and learning how to deal with a younger would-be lover, Meg manages to balance all the bouncing balls and help everyone, including herself, in this lighthearted cozy mystery.
A famous artist dies of inhaling poisoned varnish. His daughter chloroformed and the tailor’s store ablaze. While Meg’s internal radio hears too many voices. Meg Jamison, an accomplished mid-life artist and all-around do-gooder in the small college town of Riverside, organizes the local talent into forming an artist’s gallery row. But several of the older gallery owners rebel against this idea. Suddenly there are strange fires and explosions in the surrounding shops, stores and galleries. Between saving a historical mansion and turning it into an art center and converted an elderly tailor with boxes of buttons into a successful artisan, Meg has her hands full as she uses her internal radio voices and the missing asthma inhaler to finally ferret out the misguided arsonist.
