Good morning. The sun is shining and the temperature is supposed to go up to 16C, that’s 61F for my American friends. While my tulips aren’t in bloom yet, the leaves are up and I can see the buds on my lilac trees. It’ll be a good day to go for a walk.
Well, we’re heading into the last week of the 2017 A to Z Challenge blog where we’ll be facing some of the hardest letters, including X, Y, Z, the loneliest letters of the alphabet. I’m looking forward to how some of my fellow bloggers will handle those. I’ll have three new to you authors next week as well.
How many of you remember the old television show, Let’s Make a Deal? Monty Hall would offer the contestant a choice between what was behind Door # 1, Door # 2, or Door #3. Let’s play the game this morning.
Door # 1
Dancing with Detective Danger Returns with Original Cover
Logline: Strong Women Have Heart.
Uncovering secrets and exposing truth are all in a day’s work for private investigator Sterling Aegar. But when her latest case threatens to reveal her own buried feelings for an old love, Sterling runs for cover.
A body in the bathtub and pleas from a jilted wife to find her wayward husband mean a welcome break from the usual humdrum cases Sterling and her sister, Lacey, are called to investigate. But when Sterling’s old flame, Detective Ben Kirby, walks into the murder scene, she feels her world spin out of control. Danger from thugs and murderers poses no greater threat than the peril she’d suffer if she lets daredevil Ben get too close.
Seeing Sterling for the first time in two years is for Ben like drinking in a healing tonic. He could never forget the way it felt to run his hands over her delicious curves or the way she touched his soul. She remains the one person who can make the emptiness in his gut go away. Finding the murderer is his job, but protecting Sterling from seriously dangerous people is his mission.
As the case unfolds, Sterling and Ben not only try to solve the murder, they confront secrets that offer to set them each free from a painful past.
