Excerpt from historical cozy mystery Judith and the Judge:
The energetic James Garfield brushed past his bewildered host to embrace a short lady with curly dark brown bangs and long hair stacked on her head. She wore a hunter green taffeta dress with velvet cuffs on long sleeves. A gold butterfly brooch decorated her high black lace collar. “Judith and Judge Kingston,” Garfield’s voice boomed. “What a delight to see you.”
All conversation stopped in the crowded capitol rotunda. Heads craned and eyebrows lifted as Garfield’s hand shot out to the tall, distinguished, arrow-straight man standing next to the lady. The man seemed as startled as the woman looked pleased.
“You know the Kingstons?” the governor sputtered, his top hat now in his hand.
“My word, Governor. Everyone in Washington knows Judith and the Judge.” Garfield stared into the woman’s penetrating brown eyes. “Did you ever get enough funding for that orphanage asylum?”
