Gayle's latest release is Between A Clutch and a Hard Place, a comedic Southern fiction mystery that Deborah Smith describes as "Mayberry meets Fried Green Tomatoes with a big dose of fun!" In the book, wannabe sleuth Myrtle Crumb goes to a consignment shop, buys a black clutch purse and finds a note inside the purse that puts her on the trail of a mysterious disappearance.
