Blurb Blitz Tour: Jalapeno Cupcake Wench by Carol Kilgore"


Jalapeno Cupcake Wench
by Carol Kilgore

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE:   Mystery/Romance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

During the day, law enforcement consultant Gracie Hofner is on assignment at a small San Antonio bakery, waiting for a delivery. No one knows what it is or when it will arrive. The upside? Working next to Donovan Beck, a flirty hunk and a half, who is perfect fling material.
At night, Gracie resumes her search for a little girl and her mother who went missing following a double murder. Finding the pair is imperative or the girl will become a target.

At the girl’s aunt’s house, she experiences an unexplainable need to leave immediately. She tries to deny the urge to flee and pushes the pressure aside, but the compulsion intensifies. Gracie thinks she must have a brain tumor. Or is losing her mind. When similar events occur, Gracie hopes the new quirk will help her find the missing girl before time runs out.

Excerpt Two:

SAPD Sergeant Neva Salazar stood on the front porch. Gracie and Neva went back to Gracie’s early days in Homicide. A confidant for sure, but also a mentor.

The week before, Gracie had gone to a surprise birthday party for Neva’s fortieth. Gracie hadn’t realized she was eight years younger than her friend—she’d guessed five, max. Neva didn’t look forty, even though she’d been heading one of the homicide teams for three years.

Gracie stopped at her side. Neva pointed at the Band-Aid. “What happened?”

“I tried to make love to a kitchen cabinet.”

“That’s not what they mean by a woody, Hofner. Rivera told me you were coming before Gherkin did.” Gherkin was what everyone called Lieutenant George Pickle, head of Homicide. Even the chief called him Gherkin. His wife, too.

“Who’s leading it on your side?”

“Jones and O’Connor.”

“May I go in?”

“Suit up first. Gear’s over there.” Neva inclined her head toward a chair near the door. “Don’t mess with the cabinets.”

Gracie donned the shower cap, booties, and gloves, pulling the shower cap to her eyebrows.

Nick met her between the living and dining rooms. “Hey, blondie. It’s been a while since you’ve worked a homicide. You ready?”

He looked at her but wouldn’t hold her gaze. This was the first time they’d worked together since she’d left SARIC, but they met once a month or so just to reconnect. She hadn’t forgot his tells. Something was up. “As ever. Let’s go.”

“They’re in the kitchen.” Nick turned and she followed him.
