Twelve years ago Frankie Barker and Johanna Obrien became partners, then lovers, on the Philadelphia Police Force. After two years, the women were tired of city living. They quit the force and moved to Charlestown, Pennsylvania, where they built a log home and hung out their shingle as private investigators.
In Partners: The Wrong Corpse, Frankie and Johanna take a case they feel will be a cinch to solve, before embarking on a much--needed vacation. But the case turns out to be much more than they bargained for!
Graham McHenry hires Frankie and Johanna to follow his beautiful, much younger wife Cassandra, whom he believes is having an affair. They find the information their client is seeking, but the next morning they learn the woman has been murdered. The time of death places Cassandra at a motel, at the same time they had been following her to her mansion. Now McHenry wants to know who killed his wife, and Frankie and Johanna are determined to find out who they were following!

Entering a contest to win a date gets Micki more than she bargained for when The Prize has a goal of its own.
"Wow! Starlyn looks hot tonight!" Micki's best friend, Liz said.
She looked at Liz and smiled. "She always does." Starlyn was wearing a short black dress with a plunging neckline that showed plenty of cleavage. She wished that she was the one on the stage next to her instead of Taylor. If Starlyn would only give her a chance.
Micki and her three closest friends rarely missed their weekly Saturday night out together, but when obligations kept the others away, Micki could still be found at TM's every Saturday night and often several times during the week.
"May I have everyone's attention?" Starlyn asked.
Micki's eyes turned backed to Starlyn.

Can a necklace change one's destiny? When Jordan finds a long lost necklace from her late grandmother, her life takes a new and unexpected turn.
"Why don't we go to Flanagan's after the movie? Make a night of it."
"I'd like that," Skye replied as her eyes locked with the emerald.
Lara glanced around the room, then turned her attention back to Skye. "I've been getting a lot of strange looks all evening."
"It's the necklace...it's so beautiful! I've never seen anything like it before."

When everything in life gets out of control, it takes a gentle hand to rein in the wild and ignite a home fire.
"I'm not sorry, Alex," Molly quietly replied, her gaze boring into Alex's. Her lips came closer and lingered briefly before hungrily seeking Alex's.
When she forced her tongue inside Alex's mouth, Alex knew she should stop her before the situation got out of control, but as her tongue joined Molly's, she realized that it was too late. All of her pent up emotions poured out and she found herself wanting Molly as much as Molly wanted her. Her arms went around Molly and she held her tightly, never wanting to let her go.

I have to admit that the Summer Olympics have captured much of my attention. I thought that the opening ceremony was one of the best ever. I thoroughly loved every minute of it. I only wish that it hadn't been interrupted by so many commercial breaks.

We've been having some crazy weather this year. On June 30th, a storm blew through and took my back fence with it. Thankfully there was no damage to the house. We were also fortunate not to lose power as so many in the city did. We've had two more violent storms since then, but were spared any damage.
Last year Hurricane Irene destroyed my basement, which included my old office. Fortunately I'd relocated my office upstairs, but still there was a lot of damage to the basement.
Now I'm hoping that we get a reprieve from the intense heat. I'm almost afraid to see what August will bring.
