In the 3rd book, Ellie is emerging from grief and beginning to create a new life for herself but letting her daughter, church, and the construction workers boss her around. It deals with two social problems, the homeless and pedophiles.
Ellie has befriended ten-year-old Todd and the boy disappears. When Ellie finds him, he his badly injured and the police think a homeless man is the perp. Ellie is not sure; she asked him a homeless to stay in her home. Her daughter, Diane and her neighbors are furious. Diane has left her husband and moved to real estate salesmen. Ellie will need to investigate Todd’s disappearance before the perpetrator does it again. I highly recommend this book and series.

    I like that. There is no reason a good social theme can’t be included in a mystery. Yet another reason to read the Ellie Quicke series.
