Great job. What man? And murder. Newly employed at Wedding Wonderland, Hattie Cooks is learning the industry from a woman she greatly admires. When her former brother-in-law is found dead in his luxury SUV, all fingers point to Hattie’s sister, who is planning her own I Dos.
Detective Allan Wellborn is caught between a rock and a hard place—Hattie’s family and investigating the murder of a well-connected Sommerville resident, the same loser who was once married to Hattie’s sister. Determining who’s the bad guy—or gal—isn’t going to be easy and sure to piss off someone.
Can Hattie beat the clock to find out who murdered Tracey’s ex before she is charged with the crime and her wedding is ruined?

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Temporarily Out of Luck is the third book in the Hattie Cooks mysteries. I wrote Temporarily Employed as a result of a car game while on a road trip. My friend asked questions and we'd answer, like: Pick one-Englebert Humperdink or Tom Jones. Then she asked us to write the opening paragraph of a book using the word "window." I had nothing-nothing. My friend knew I wanted to write and I suspected that was why she asked the question. Anyway, the next day at home, I sat down at the family computer and wrote eight chapters! Who knew? I tinkered for a couple of weeks and finally found the courage to show my friend. She read the pages, passed them back, and said, "Keep going." I did.
