Chick Lit. Mystery - Some girls have all the luck, and I'm not one of them. I've gotten myself into some really sticky situations all my life, but this one beats them all. Who can say they had dinner with a dead man? Me. That's who. Add to that, I am currently unemployed and will take any measly bone a person might throw a dog. I am licking that dog bowl for odd jobs that pay cash, as I collect my unemployment check. All this, while trying to please my mother's need to marry me off before it's too late. Between blind dates, odd jobs while looking for a job, interviews with stellar type people - not. I wind up having dinner with a blind date to only be attending his funeral by weeks end. Strange things start to happen, like my car getting blown up and mysterious large sums of money getting deposited into my account. But what I would really like to know is, do I get the handsome hero in the end or another blind date?

Meet the Author

I am an independently published author that finds scraps of time to write with intentions to escape the perils of a working life while owning a small business with my husband, raising teen boys, two shelter dogs – scratch that we now have four, and a tank full of fish that keep multiplying on their own every time we look for baby fish – free fish anyone? For all of the chaos, testing of mental fortitude, strength and intuition I have endured, I have a lot to be thankful for. Recent years have put my dedication to writing time on the back burner. There were a few major surgeries within my immediate household, to then have major changes in life in general. As of June 15th or this year, I lost my mother to the final battle of Ovarian Cancer. She was a strong independent woman that I loved deeply but often saw things quite a bit differently, yet only a mother knows, you love your child no matter what and that love will always find a way. Between our business, teens, my mother’s cancer battle and life, I have found a renewed sense of what makes me content when the tides are trying to drown me… and that is to be creative in any whimsical way that nudges me. I am back to writing full force when time allows, painting, gardening, taking pictures, knitting or my all-time favorite thing that helped me morn my loss, scrapbooking. All of these things are so very therapeutic and to be able to share with others, gives me joy. I hope you like my books, not perfect as they could be; but life is not perfect and is meant to be enjoyed nonetheless. – CJ Hawk

This book was so bad I quit after avfewvchapters. But that still gave me time to know that this author didn't understand punctuation or spelling. That someone could mean "traitor" and use "trader" instead is beyond me. I found nothing to recommend that anyone read this book.

How many times do I have to read about Lizas nipples. I don't know about finishing this book. If not for nipples it would be enjoyable. There is enough inuendo in the story without having to read about NIPPLES a few times on every page.

I loved this! It was a funny and smart chick lit novel. The characters are quirky and engaging and pulled me right in. This author just went to the top of my must read list for anything she writes. If you like chick lit, I highly recommend this book.
