Mrs. Million
Author(s): Pete Hautman

Barbaraannette Quinn loved her husband, Bobby, right up until the day he got in his truck,left their home in Cold Rock, Minnesota, and never returned. She has waited six years for him to walk back through her door, and now that she has hit the Powerball lottery, she's willing to give a million dollars to anyone who can make that happen.
Bobby and his girlfriend, Phlox, decide that she will turn him in, collect the million bucks, and then they'll both hightail it back to Arizona to live happily ever after. Unfortunately, everybody wants a piece of Bobby -- including a pair of hulking good ole boys, who figure Bobby owes them, and a sociopathic pretty boy freshout of St. Cloud Correctional, who notices that Barbaraannette's offer doesn't require that Bobby arrive alive. Toss in a shy marathon-running banker, a lovestruck humanities professor, and Barbaraannette's kleptomaniac mother, and things start getting a little hot in Cold Rock.
"I've really started something, haven't I?" Barbaraannette says. What she has started is a crackpot criminal conspiracy in Pete Hautman's funniest novel yet.

Los Angeles Times A winner.
Minneapolis Star Tribune Besides being a hillarious, fast-moving read...Mrs. Million is a first-rate adventure yarn.
The Denver Post Entertaining....Pete Hautman is among the writers whose name alone promises a great read.
San Diego Union-Tribune Mrs. Million is a hot-dog-at-the-ballgame book: You can?t believe you ate it; you can?t believe you ate it so fast; you probably could eat another one.
Newsday (New York) Fun and engaging. Read it for the heroine who is tough, sensitive, and entangled in a family she both loves and hates.
Omaha World-Herald (NE) Mrs. Million is a heck of a fun novel and deliciously written, too.
Detroit Free Press A winding and surprisingly satisfying story....This book is a sweet-dizzy ride that shows Hautman is one of those rare authors who can love his characters while laughing at them.
Midwest Book Review A fabulous tale that will thrill readers who relish an offbeat novel. The story line never lets up, but as in all of Hautman?s delicious books, the eccentric characters control the plot...and bring a brilliant mystery to life.
Baton Rouge Magazine (LA) The tale is outrageous and decidedly funny with a tightly drawn plot, suspense and even violence....The whole thing has a wonderful lunatic tinge that brings crime fiction to a near hysterical level.
State Journal (Lansing, MI) The action gets fast, furious, and deadly with unexpected plot twists....If you?re seeking entertaining, fast-paced, light reading: look no further -- Pete Hautman has arrived.
