Vicki Batman ~ Cover Reveal!!! Temporarily Employed


A long journey for my baby is paying off
and I'm delighted to share with you!
Here's a little blurb to whet your appetite:  

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?

 
Can you tell I'm happy? and to celebrate, I'm giving away an adorable flowery tote! Leave your email address in the comments.

Absolutley love the typewriter cover- brilliant!

darkwriter said...

Love the cover and the story sounds interesting. Good luck with the book.

vicki batman said...

Hi, Chris and Beverly. I always thought a keyboard on the cover would be a great idea. Michelle suggested "You're hired" but that wasn't picked. I added the New job. New love. And murder line.

Nancy said...

What a darling cover!! The story sounds wonderful, too - as are all your stories. I'm psyched for you, Vicki!

No need to enter me in the contest. I just had a minute to comment. I'm waaaaay behind in congratulating all the PPs on their releases, so congrats to all of you!!

Light,
Nancy
