Six Sentence Sunday – Where Neighborhood Living Is Dangerous

Posted: August 13, 2011 in Uncategorized

My brand new series Pinked – is about living and dying in community associations. You’re going to find murders performed in the most curious of ways and I hope you’ll learn to love my recurring characters as they solve the most heinous crimes and attempt to find love along the way.

“Well, since I’m not a firefighter or airline pilot and I was called in the middle of the night obviously given my clothes, I don’t have my CAI card stating I’m all accredited as the manager of one of the finest communities this side of the state line. So, will a driver’s license do?” she mused, giving him the look of die you mother fucker. Granted, she generally spoke her mind but the liquor was having interesting effects on her that night of perhaps the crazed scene was driving her crazier than usual. Her little voice was reminding her that she needed to ratchet down the bitch in heat behavior a hair, but the guy was fun to play with.

“Um. That’s fine, Ms. French. I’ll take your word for it.”

PINKED – coming from Rebel Ink Press on October 17th!!

SYNOPSIS

When Community Association Manager Nicky French received a call about one of her communities in the middle of the night, she knew something serious was up. Finding the developer of Leopard’s Pointe impaled on the iron pool gates surrounded by a sea of inflatable pink flamingoes, Nicky was stunned to find bonfires raging and the community rejoicing. William Barrington was the brilliant designer of the upscale multi-use community, yet apparently everyone wanted him dead. And there were too many suspects to name including every single homeowner in the community and his two sons.

For rough and tumble Detective Tyler Deverall to be called to a scene of a murder in the middle of the night was nothing unusual. And given the only thing keeping the owners from partying all night long and celebrating thus hindering his investigation was Nicky French’s tough stance, Tyler was intrigued.

As Nicky and Tyler set out to find the murderer, builders begin to drop like flies with each murder becoming more horrific and comical than the last. Set against the backdrop of Chesterfield County, Virginia, enter the realm (and sometimes nightmare) of one very special homeowner’s association – where living can be dangerous to your health. As Nicky and Tyler delve into the wild world of spray painted flowers, kinky sex, neon signs and a tango with the mafia, they soon learn that their understanding of humanity will never be the same. Who knew a glue gun could be such an effective murder weapon?

What did you guys think? It’s campy and fun and three hotties you’re going to fall in love wtih.

Ciao
