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?
“We need to cover the ground rules.”
“Ground rules?” His brow vee-ed. “Is this normal?”
“Absolutely.” I nodded. “The ground rules are: No kissing. No hugging. No whispering lovey-dovey stuff in my ear. No nothing. Understand?”
“I understand, but I thought people in love do this.”
“Let’s set the record straight right now—we are not in love. And here’s another rule: don’t speak to anyone.”
“Don’t talk to anyone—why not?”
Noticing the bizarre look on his face, I relented. “Okay, you can talk. Just say one sentence.”
“Is this a weird family thing?”
“Nope. It’s a Hattie-who-is-being-nice thing.”
