“If you enjoy your cozy mysteries with a good shot of romance, and a love triangle with a sexy bad boy and a Southern gentleman in the mix, then you will love this. Very reminiscent of the Stephanie Plum books, but the laughs are louder, the romance is sexier and there is a great murder mystery to top it off.” Bella McGuire, Cozy Mystery Book Reviews
Savannah Martin has always been a good girl, doing what was expected and fully expecting life to fall into place in its turn. But when her perfect husband turns out to be a lying, cheating slimeball - and bad in bed to boot - Savannah kicks the jerk to the curb and embarks on life on her own terms. With a new apartment, a new career, and a brand new outlook on life, she's all set to take the world by storm.
If only the world would stop throwing her curveballs...
Sometimes, trouble hits too close to home…
The kind of late that comes with midnight feedings and the pitter-patter of little feet. And while it’s a circumstance that should make everyone happy - now she can finally settle down and marry Todd Satterfield, the way everyone’s been hoping and praying - it isn’t Todd’s baby. And Rafe Collier, whose baby it is, didn’t sign on for fatherhood. Savannah hasn’t seen him or heard from him for two months. So what’s a girl to do? Keep the baby and become a single mother, or terminate the pregnancy and pretend it never happened?
Add in the murder of Savannah’s sister-in-law - Dix’s wife Sheila - the trial of a murderess Todd’s prosecuting - a woman who just happens to be Sheila’s friend Marley - and the disappearance of Rafe’s twelve year old son David - the kid he never knew he had! - and things get complicated fast. And there is worse to come: When Rafe comes back to Nashville to help look for David, and learns that Savannah’s pregnant, things do not work out the way Savannah hopes. In the end, she’s left with nothing she wanted and a whole lot of trouble she didn’t, and for once, Rafe’s not there to save the day.
“VERDICT: The hilarious dialog and the tension between Savannah and Rafe will delight fans of chick-lit mysteries and romantic suspense.” —Jo Ann Vicarel, Library Journal
