On Maggie's Watch

Product Details

By Ann Wertz Garvin

Maggie and Martin Finley have returned to Maggie’s Wisconsin hometown, leaving behind a fast-paced, high-profile life. The purpose is to create a safe environment for their child. With the birth impending, safety is increasingly important to Maggie, still recovering from a tragedy that is still fresh.

Maggie decides that the best way to create a safe environment for her baby is to resurrect the inactive neighborhood watch. In doing this, she gets more than she bargained for, including becoming the leader. Then, while organizing the group, Maggie discovers online that a predator is living in the neighborhood! The more Maggie tries to take control of the situation, the more she loses it!

Before she even realizes it, Maggie is making predawn cruises through the neighborhood streets, doing things she knows are not safe, including becoming too involved with the handyman. Her lifelong friend, Julia, tries to be a voice of reason, but has her own set of issues.

Nothing is what it seems for anyone. There are lessons to be learned by everyone.  This suspenseful book is very unique and quirky. There are amusing moments and unexpected twists that will keep you guessing, and leave you thinking.


  1. I'm a big fan of quirky! I'll have to check the book out.

  2. Me, too. I collect non-fiction odd books. There is an old book "Secrets of a Small Town". Yes, quirky can be good!
