One night I was out with my girls enjoying a much needed ladies night while wondering if one more dirty martini would push me over the edge. The next thing I knew, I was in the club’s bathroom listening to a woman screaming, “No,” and a man’s voice growling, “I know you want it.”

That asshole picked the wrong restroom, in the wrong club, at the wrong time.

Little did I know the asshole was Cade’s VP, and although we saved that woman from his clutches that night, she’d be found floating in a motel pool a month later.

Running a PI firm is a lot harder than taking pictures for one, especially when your professional life spills over into your personal one. I’m going through cupcakes like our new puppy goes through piddle pads, and if I’m not careful there’s bound to be a Cupcake Overload.
“Hey,” Amy May said in greeting when I opened the door to her bakery. “How are you feeling this morning?”
I groaned at my friend, who looked fresh as a daisy this morning, even though I knew she drank as much as I did last night.
“Not one hundred percent yet,” I moaned dramatically as I sat on the stool in front of her.
“I have just the thing,” she said with a sunny grin that made me hate her just a little.
Then she placed a pretty blue and white plate with a decadent-looking cupcake right in front of me.
“Is that a chocolate-covered pretzel?” I asked on a groan.
“Chocolate cake filled with fudge, topped with peanut butter whipped frosting, and a chocolate-covered pretzel,” Amy May announced.
Sweet baby Jesus,” I said reverently as I gently peeled the cupcake wrapper, mouth watering. “Youre a goddess.”
“Thats what they all say,” she replied with a laugh, but I was too busy devouring the cupcake to notice.
