In the seedy underworld of 1940’s New York, revenge tastes like cherry pie with a side of lipstick and perfume. The Avon Lady is in town…
Betty Jones is a woman with a dark past, which she paints each day with Avon cosmetics and a picture-perfect smile. She’s created a new life with her naïve-but-loveable husband George, and their children, Nancy and George Junior.
Despite the protective walls that she has built around her world, Betty is unable to live with the continuing existence of the people who once ruined her, so she embarks on a cold-blooded vigilante mission to be rid of them once and for all.

"Excellent and flawlessly executed" J.M. (Amazon)
"Avon Calling takes on the tropes of femininity in the 40's- the dutiful wife, gals who just want to look pretty letting their man do all the heavy lifting and thinking - and flips them on their head." Screencraft
"Avon Calling is one of my favorites because its premise is based upon balancing the normal day of a 1940's housewife and mother with her night time adventures as a kick-ass assassin or whatever she is! Great fun and definitely something that I haven't come across before." Manchester (Amazon)
"... a World War II era super-heroine who is juggling responsibilities of protecting the home front with those of her family - a solid four stars and sincerely tempted to toss in an extra half star" A.K. (Amazon)
"... a vigilante super-heroine who is a little bit like Betty Draper and a lot like Frank Castle... (it) does a great job of turning the world of superheroes upside down and inside out." Eric (Goodreads)
