Louisiana Hotshot: A Humorous New Orleans Murder Mystery; Talba Wallis #1 (The Talba Wallis PI Series), by Julie Smith. (Still 0.99?)

"The Baroness Pontalba is the hippest, smartest, coolest female detective I've read about in years. No ditzy, air-head here! Her relationship with her cantankerous boss, Eddie Valentino, was a special, touching part of the plot. The dialogue was lively, sharp as a tack and captivating. I hated to read the last chapter---I wanted the story to go on and on. Thanks for a fabulous book." -- Amazon reviewer

Louisiana Hotshot is the FIRST book in the Talba Wallis series by Edgar-Award winning author Julie Smith


Confirmed grump Eddie Valentino placed the ad. Hotshot twenty-something Talba Wallis knew exactly how to answer it.

And thus was born the dynamic duo of New Orleans private detectives, one cynical, sixty-five-year-old Luddite white dude with street smarts, and one young, bright-eyed, Twenty-First century African-American female poet, performance artist, mistress of disguise, and computer jock extraordinaire. Think Queen Latifah and Danny DeVito.

In Louisiana Hotshot, their job is to hunt down a sociopath and pedophile who's molested the fourteen-year-old daughter of their client, hangs out on the ragged edges of the rap and recording industries, and has more powerful allies than a Cabinet member.

But both detectives have unfinished business from the past-in Eddie's case, something he deeply regrets; in Talba's, a personal mystery, one so frightening no one will help her investigate. But she knows she won't sleep till she solves it-and the truth will change her forever.

Unsuitable, by Ainslie Paton. (Still 0.99?)

"The plot moves along really well with enough twists and turns to keep any romance reader happy. I would have loved an epilogue but ... really I wanted for it to just go on and on, so that I could continue to be involved in these characters' lives. When I am disappointed that a book has come to an end, I know it has succeeded. Thanks Ainslie Paton you have done it again." -- Amazon reviewer

Can they get trailblazing and homemaking to fit, or is love just another gender stereotype?

Audrey broke the glass ceiling. Reece swapped a blue collar for a pink collar job.

She's a single mum by design. He's a nanny by choice.

She gets passed over for promotion. He struggles to find a job.

She takes a chance on him. He's worth more than he knows.

There's an imbalance of power. There's an age difference.

There's a child whose favourite word is no.

Everything about them being together is unsuitable.

Except for love.

Ever since photographer Lacy Maguire caught her ex playing Pin the Secretary to the Elevator Wall, she's been content with her dog Fabio, her three cats, and a vow of chastity. But all of that changes when the reindeer-antlered Fabio drags in a very desperate, on-the-run detective who decides to take refuge in her house-a house filled with twinkling lights and a decorated tree. (Okay, so it's February, but she has a broken heart to mend, a Christmas-card shoot to do, and a six-times divorced, match-making mother to appease.) For the first time in a looooong while, Lacy reconsiders her vow. Because sexy Chase Kelly, wounded soul that he may be, would be an oh-so-delicious way of breaking her fast. Now, if she can just keep them both alive and him out of jail...
