Nubbin Schmeckpepper does exactly what he wants to do, regardless of the consequences, and no one, including traveling nurse Mercy Mares, can tell him any different. When he elopes from Valley Retirement Estates one night, everyone in his small western Nebraska town is baffled. Even more troubling than his sudden disappearance is the fact that no one, including Mercy, has any idea what set him off this time or have any notion about where he could be heading. To make matters worse, a freak snowstorm is forecasted for the area and a group of bank robbers has decided to use the opportunity as a means to wreak havoc on the unsuspecting citizens of Gering. Now, Mercy, being more hard-headed than most, can't help but want to rush back to Nebraska to find her old, curmudgeon friend, but what she discovers along the way, only heightens her fear for her grumpy friend and his well-being. Can Mercy find Nubbin before he ends up in a whole world of trouble that will make him an internet sensation and her the laughing stock of all the small town that hoped to never see her again? This is Book Five in the A Mercy Mares Cozy Mystery series. Each book is a standalone novel.
