BLURB:

No man. Bad job. And Murder. Hattie Cooks is still searching for her dream job and one might be available...in the Big Apple, far from friends, family, and Allan Wellborn, the man who still makes her heart race. In the meantime, she finds temporary employment at an accounting firm where two auditor friends turn up dead.

Detective Allan Wellborn dropped Hattie for Blonde Bimbo who, coincidentally, is employed at NLB where fishy things are taking place. When Allan interviews Hattie, he must determine why
all signs point to her as a suspect.

Can Hattie discover why Allan dumped her and who is murdering auditors before death strikes again?

GENRE: romantic comedy mystery

 ~*~*~*~*~*~
EXCERPT:
  
“So, you really have no intention of giving me my birthday present?”

“Not really. This one needs to be savored.”

Bouncey, bouncey. “Besides, your mom would kill me if I told.”

Uh-oh. My radar surfaced like a periscope on a Dclass nuclear submarine armed with twenty deadly missiles. This would not do. No siree. Sometimes, Mom’s surprises were incredibly unique. Translated, this meant on occasion her presents were:

—Butt ugly
—Not needed
—Childish

I didn’t want to sound completely ungrateful about Mom’s gifts. In truth, I very much appreciated everything she gave me. I really struggled with keeping the unusual presents and then donating them to a charity when they weren’t used. Most had been stashed on the top shelf of my closet in case she visited and made inquiries about them.

    Hi, Mai T! Why Hattie and it's because we both like champagne cocktails. LOL

    Hi, Kim! Interesting cover is good or bad? Cartoon covers work for cozy mysteries and romantic comedy. I just didn't see a naked guy working for this one. Have a good day!
