New York City (PRWEB) September 03, 2013
Hot shot lawyer Thaddeus Ziemann thinks dessert chef Odessa Wilkes should stick to baking cupcakes. He wishes her best friend; Maggie Swift would busy herself with taking another community college adult class on Knitting for Fun and Profit. The two amateur detectives are screwing with his case. Ziemann has been hired to defend Bebe Dunn, a sous chef at Odessa’s family restaurant, against the charge of murder. One of Dunn’s engraved chef knives had been found in the back of a very dead local music agent. This makes him a prime suspect for two New York City Detectives. Despite resistance from Ziemann, the New York City Police Department, Maggie and Odessa are determined to help Dunn. Their biggest obstacles are a bodyguard with boundary issues, his egomaniac music promoter boss and Cherry.
Sherrilyn ‘Cherry’ Turnbull could clear Dunn’s name but first she wants to get paid. Maggie would prefer she’d tell the truth and go away. Odessa wants to take the wannabe video vixen and rearrange her chromosomes with a rolling pin until she resembled a decent human being, instead of a manipulative, money grumbling witch. First, they have to find her.
