Lucy Ann has had a bad year. Accustomed to having a man take care of her, she loses her husband to divorce, and her brother to a sudden illness. She slips into drinking leftover wine from her catering business and watching reality television, wishing she had an adventurous life, but doing nothing about it. Then out of the blue, she receives a letter from her former high school sweetheart Matthew. Lucy Ann has found a new man to take care of her. Or has she? Taking Care by Deborah Lacy appears in the Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine May/June 2018 issue. Deborah runs the Mystery Playground blog, where you can find reviews and musings, and her inspiration for the story Taking Care.
