Hattie Cook’s dream job is down the toilet and her new SUV violated. Desperate for cash to cover the basic necessities of rent and food, she takes a temporary job at Buy-Rite insurance company where she uncovers an embezzling scam tied to the death of a former employee—the very one she replaced. The last thing she wants is to clash with By-the-Book Detective Wellborn, no matter how much he makes her heart pound. Allan Charles Wellborn has secretly adored Hattie all his life. He evolved from a pocket protector-wearing geek to a handsome police detective. When the police determine there’s more to the death of a former Buy Rite employee, he steps in to lead the investigation. Overly dedicated, always perfect, he puts his job first, even if doing so ultimately hurts the one he loves.Can the killer be found before Hattie’s time is up?

Hattie, who has a string of bad luck, just can’t catch a break.  After a discouraging interview, she is now being stopped by the police.  A. Wellborn to be exact.  Hattie now has a citation in hand for a taillight out, funnier part is, taillight is intact but her who bumper is missing.  In order to pay the citation, Hattie takes a job with Buy Rite Insurance Company.  At this point if you didn’t know better, you could say Hattie’s luck is a changing, but…. that’s not the case.  Hattie is deep in trouble, and turns to Office A. Wellborn.  The story has twists and turns throughout, with laugh out loud moments, romance and suspense.  It’s a fun read and I look forward to Vicki Batman’s next book.
