Genre: romantic comedy mystery
No man. Bad job. And Murder. Hattie Cooks is still searching for her dream job and one might be available…in the Big Apple, far from friends, family, and Allan Wellborn, the man who still makes her heart race. In the meantime, she finds temporary employment at an accounting firm where two auditor friends turn up dead.
Detective Allan Wellborn dropped Hattie for Blonde Bimbo who, coincidentally, is employed at NLB where fishy things are taking place. When Allan interviews Hattie, he must determine why all signs point to her as a suspect.
Can Hattie discover why Allan dumped her and who is murdering auditors before death strikes again?
“We need to cover the ground rules.”
“Ground rules?” His brow vee-ed. “Is this normal?”
“Absolutely.” I nodded. “The ground rules are: No kissing. No hugging. No whispering lovey-dovey stuff in my ear. No nothing. Understand?”
“I understand, but I thought people in love do this.”
“Let’s set the record straight right now—we are not in love. And here’s another rule: don’t speak to anyone.”
“Don’t talk to anyone—why not?”
Noticing the bizarre look on his face, I relented. “Okay, you can talk. Just say one sentence.”
“Is this a weird family thing?”
“Nope. It’s a Hattie-who-is-being-nice thing.”

I cannot wait to read Temporarily Insane. Few authors make me laugh as hard as Vicki Batman.

Hi, Joanne! I love writing these rules for a geek who rarely dates. They make me laugh. Hugs!
Enjoying your book tour. Story sounds great. Thanks for the giveaway chance.
Hi, Marcy! Why thank you!!! Go to my website and sign up for my newsletter. I have another giveaway there, too.
This is such a fun book tour and thank you Ms. Batman for always being so engaging with all of us! My question for today is, if Hollywood knocked on your door and told you they were interested in making your book into a theatrical or tv movie who would you want cast to play your characters?
Hi, Clojo! Thank you!! This is one tough question. I wish it was Myrna Loy (dating myself???) because I adore the repartee with William Powell in the Think Man. Silent actors used their facial expressions and there are some exchanges that are priceless. So maybe you have a suggestion?
I meant Thin Man. Not think man. lordy.
It’s a fun excerpt!

Hi, Victoria! So glad you did. And if you like my writing, there’s book one, Temporarily Employed, and several holiday anthologies with a short story, AND the little short story books.
What books have most influenced your life?
Hi, Mai T! Number one is Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier. I was about thirteen the first time I read it. This book transitioned my reading into adult reading. Number two are books by Emilie Loring. At age fourteen, I was bored one summer and wanted to go to the library to pick up new reads. Only my mom had a rule-every two weeks. And she knew I read fast and read what my sisters checked out, too. So to appease me, she handed over Emilie Loring’s book, a romance. Dick Francis’ Come to Grief astounded me. I read it twice. And A Knight in Shining Armor by Jude Devereaux. Closed it. Thought a bit and reread it. Thank you for asking.
