Terri L. Austin  |  December 2012


Rose Strickland is having a very blue Christmas.  Her friend, Janelle, is arrested for attempted murder, her sexy bad guy crush, Sullivan, is marked by a hit man, and her boss, Ma, is locked in an epic smackdown with a rival diner.  Determined to save those she loves, Rose embarks on another investigation, and this one is more tangled than a box of last year’s tree lights.  With her eclectic gang at the ready, Rose stumbles across dead bodies, ex-cons, chop shops, jealous girlfriends, jilted lovers, and a gaggle of strippers in a battle for freedom she might not survive.
