Trouble On Every Hand

Newly retired school teacher Eugeena Patterson  is a feisty woman many can identify with, especially mothers.
Out for her daily walk she stumbles  upon the body of an estranged friend.  From that moment the world as she knew is turned upside down.

Along her way to investigating the crime readers will be introduced to a few interesting characters.  Those characters include Amos Jones, her neighbor and retired detective, her daughter, two sons, a handful of grandchildren, a nosey neighbor and an over-indulged dog.

This story will give readers  much to consider as the police view her daughter Leesa as a person of interest in the crime. Contrary to their belief, Eugeena suspects and investigates a few suspects of her own. Author Moody’s ability to  combine information about diabetes and post-partum depression makes for a flavorful helping of  Deep Fried Trouble.
Managing Diabetes Tip #6 – Rest
“A sweet, sweet spirit hovered around me. I inhaled and began my morning session with Jesus. It had taken me a long time to learn that going to church wasn’t all about what I could get from the Lord. Prayer was a time to bless the Lord. Praise Him.
I hummed, ‘Oh how I love Jesus, Oh...’”
 ~ Eugeena Patterson, Deep Fried Trouble
I’ve known about my diabetes for over a year now, but it doesn’t mean that I have my lifestyle of managing it under control. It takes some serious discipline to stay healthy and alive. Just in case you know someone or you have this disease yourself, I want to provide you with some tips I’ve learned over the last year.
Diabetes can wear you out, don’t I know. However, I make myself go to bed early and allow myself some extra time to get up in the morning. I don’t push myself to be active short of my daily walks, but I do make sure I take the time to simply rest and let my body repair itself. Do yourself a favor and buy some pretty bed clothes and buy some pretty sheets with matching covers. Make your bedroom a sanctuary. Rest yourself.
Now that’s just one tip, child. You keep your eye on the Deep Fried Trouble Virtual Book Tour (July 15- 26, 2013) for more tips.
Take Care Now!
