My Cousin Skinny By E.J. Copperman: Review/Giveaway

by Cynthia Chow

Sandy Moss may be a practicing family law attorney in a Los Angeles law firm, but she’ll always be a Jersey Girl at heart. New Jersey’s not about to give her up either, as she’s being recalled to attend the wedding of her first cousin Stephanie, who since childhood Sandy has called “Skinny.” Sandy’s not exactly enthusiastic about attending because while her perfect sister Delia is a bridesmaid, Sandy is barely on the “C” list of invitees.

Witness for the Persecution By E.J. Copperman: Review/Giveaway

by Cynthia Chow

Even though the Staton, Taylor, Evans and Wentworth law firm has created its own criminal law division based on the success of their new attorney Sandy Moss, the fallout of that case continues to give her nightmares. Not so much from the fear of failure when taking on another homicide case, but from attempting to balance her workload and an upcoming walk down a movie premiere red carpet. Her celebrity former client and current boyfriend Patrick McNabb hasn't given up on proposing marriage even after seven rejections, but Sandy worries that the only thing keeping the budding movie star interested is the thrill of the pursuit.

Inherit the Shoes By E.J. Copperman: Review/Giveaway/Guest Post

by Cynthia Chow
& E.J. Copperman

The opposing lead attorney is absurdly attractive. The second chair is improbably gorgeous. The witness fakes a heart attack, and is caught out by another attorney grabbing his wrist. These improbable occurrences are all the clues one needs to know that this is a legal television show, one that has former New Jersey assistant prosecutor Sandra Moss wanting to throw her remote. Needing a change of pace – and having misguidedly dated her boss – made moving to Los Angeles to accept a job as a divorce attorney seem like a good idea. It only takes her first day at the law firm of Seaton, Taylor, Evans and Bach to show her how bad a decision it may have been.

The Question of the Absentee Father By E.J Copperman & Jeff Cohen: Review/Giveaway/Interview

by Cynthia Chow

It was Samuel Hoenig’s mother who encouraged him to open Questions Answered, an investigation business that helped him to focus his unique observational and detailed-obsessed intelligence. It is also she who asks the one question he never expected, “Where is your father living now?” Twenty-seven years ago Reuben Hoenig left his wife and four-year-old son, and Samuel has always believed that his being on the autism spectrum was the cause.

Dog Dish of Doom By E. J. Copperman: Review/Giveaway/Guest Post

by Sandra Murphy
& E.J. Copperman

Kay Powell has an entertainment background. Her mom, El, and dad Jay (J, K, L, get it?) were performers in the Catskills and now on cruise ships. Kay did her part for years until she felt too grown up and wanted to go to veterinary school. She ended up in law school instead. However, that can be managed if you go into a career of being an agent for animals.

The Question of the Felonious Friend By E.J. Copperman/Jeff Cohen: Review/Giveaway

by Cynthia Chow

Although Asperger’s Syndrome may no longer be recognized in the American Psychiatric Association’s DSM-V, being on the spectrum of autism is a trait that has helped to make Samuel Hoenig an effective investigator. In the year since establishing his Questions Answered inquiry business, he and his employee Janet Washburn have successfully provided both mundane and unusual solutions. Now he’s being faced with a question that tests all of Samuel’s abilities to understand emotions, as well as being difficult to define in and of itself. How do you know if someone is your friend?
