It’s that time again and thought I’d give you a little taste of Pinked – Nicky has to deal with a lot in managing associations. Come see what she finds when a dead body – impaled on the iron pool gates – and she has to go check it out.


As she gazed around at the seemingly growing crowd seeing the who’s who of association living, Nicky grimaced. Every single Board member from at least three associations nestled within the six thousand plus homes was hovering around the pool area with bells on. She also counted several committee chairs. Most of her nut cases and even the one wholesome or so she thought political leader, Jack Horner, would be local stud muffin and all around asshole, Board of Supervisor’s representative for Chesterfield County, stood raising their glass to the dead and swizzling obviously not the first of several cocktails back.

She groaned and made her way to the front of the clubhouse, which was nestled against the large community pool. Standing in what appeared to be a freaking silver cape of all things was her Board President, Ray Switzer. Standing barely five foot six with a barrel chest from too many years of bourbon and fried food, he swayed back and forth, his hands on his hips. A dark billowing cloud of some weird attire flowed behind him in the pathetically early morning breeze. The man was holding court.

Jesus Christ!” Nervous, Nicky took a sip of the drink and gagged. Whew, the heady mix was fourteen parts tequila and one part sour mix.


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 do you think?  A little wacky – eh?
