When a down-on-her-luck divorcée meets a determined-to-dominate
detective, they find out that falling in love can be murder. . .
Nell Dysart's in trouble. Weighed down by an inexplicable
divorce and a loss of appetite for everything, Nell is sleepwalking
through life until her best friend finagles a job for her with a
shabby little detective agency that has lots of potential and a
boss who looks easy to manage.
Gabe McKenna isn't doing too well, either. His detective agency
is wasting time on a blackmail case, his partner has decided he
hates watching cheating spouses for money, and his ex-wife has just
dumped him . . . again. The only thing that's going his way is that
his new secretary looks efficient, boring, and biddable.
But looks can be deceiving, and soon Nell and Gabe are squaring
off over embezzlement, business cards, vandalism, dognapping,
blackmail, Chinese food, unprofessional sex, and really ugly office
furniture, all of which turn out to be the least of their problems.
Because soon, there are murders. And shortly after that, Nell and
Gabe start falling in love. . . .
