Stilettos & Scoundrels
Presley Thurman, thirty-something red-head, was just fired from her job for telling her boss where to shove it. Far from feeling sad she had just left what she thought was her dream job, she was unexpectedly happy but at loose ends. Deciding to take a trip home to visit her parents and regroup, her visit turned out to be anything but relaxing when a senator visiting her small town was murdered. Nosy by nature she couldn’t help but get involved especially when she reconnected with handsome Cooper Sands, an old high school friend who had been working for the senator.
Who killed the Senator? And will the answer hit too close to home?
