New book for the new year!
I worked on Cats in Heat and Cat Scratch Fever back to back and really needed a genre break, so I've jumped into a contemp erom with both suspense and some humor aspects. It's exactly what my brain needed and I'm having a tremendous amount of fun with it.
Read on for the blurb and a random excerpt (which is a first draft--apologies for any typos). Everything from the blurb to the excerpt to even the title is subject to change, of course.

Sympathy for the Devil is still available for sale in ebook if you haven't checked it out yet.
Natasha Whitaker is a workaholic, putting in long hours to acclimate herself to the P.I. business in preparation to take over for her aging mentor. But the day after her boss’s retirement doesn’t bring the usual insurance fraud and cheating spouses: instead, a dead body shows up in a startling similar fashion to a home invasion cold case from years ago.
Complicating matters is the return of Devin Archer--estranged husband of the original victim--to Stirling Falls. He was the prime suspect in the first case, though slipped away when there wasn’t enough evidence to prove his guilt. With bodies piling up the same time as his arrival, all eyes in town turn to him once again.
Tash is hired by the brother of the first victim to keep tabs on Devin, a task she eagerly accepts. But she can’t help her attraction to this dark, potentially dangerous suspect, or deny the instant heat between them. Is Devin a broken man still suffering from the loss of his wife, or a cold-blooded killer setting his sights on Tash as his next victim?
