"Marriage is an adventure, like going to war." G. K. Chesterton People always used to tease Samantha Lee Sherman about how "the civil war must rage in your marriage" because of the juxtaposition of her maiden name Lee with her married name Sherman. However, since Sam solved a couple of murders (in "The Happy Housewife") it was not just a joke anymore. Her new confident self was coming in increasing conflict with her old husband. In an effort to work on her marriage, Sam travels with her husband Doug to Zurich, Switzerland on his work trip. But crossing the Atlantic only seems to multiply the Sherman's problems. On their first day in Switzerland, Sam witnesses a murder. Sam cannot resist the pull of a challenge and finds herself battling old money, UN hierarchy, and a cynical reporter as she wades into a new case. While she is running through a garden maze and figuring out what happened years ago in Congo, she is also enjoying and fighting fantasies of a handsome detective while trying to find a killer and fix her marriage. "The Gereizt Housewife" is the second book in the Samantha Sherman mystery series. This time Sam is gereizt, "irritated" in German, and must use her self-education, curiosity and pluck to track a killer and moved forward with her life.
