Judgment at Santa Monica By E.J.Copperman: Review/Giveaway

by Cynthia Chow

When former New Jersey prosecutor Sandy Moss moved to Los Angeles to work at the high-priced family law of Seaton, Taylor, Evans and Wentworth, she never expected to be handling as many criminal cases as she would divorces. After surviving and succeeding in a previous murder trial with actor Patrick McNabb as a very attentive client, Sandy now has her hands full attempting to prove that the LAPD is railroading uber-suburban mom Madelyn Forsyth into a prostitution conviction as the new Hollywood Madam.

Bird, Bath, and Beyond By E. J. Copperman: Review/Giveaway

by Sandra Murphy

Kay Powell is a theatrical agent to the stars, at least to the wannabes. Well, it’s hard to tell sometimes, just how much they want to be stars. They’re all animals. Take for instance, Barney. He’s a parrot and replacing the late Babs on a show about a medical examiner when zombies roam the city. One of Barney’s best lines is, “Can’t kill a zombie!”

Edited Out By E. J. Copperman: Review/Giveaway

by Sandra Murphy

Rachel is a mystery writer. At a book signing, she met Duffy Madison which was weird because that’s the name of her main character. The man has a similar job and pretty much all the traits and characteristics she gave the fictional Duffy. What’s worse, this guy has no memory of anything in his life that happened more than five years ago—right when Rachel started the series. He thinks his life began then. Rachel thinks this nut case is really Damien Mosley.

Spouse on Haunted Hill By E. J. Copperman: Review/Giveaway

by Sandra Murphy

Alison has enough problems what with business at the haunted B&B slower than usual, two contrary resident ghosts, and a daughter, Liss, who’s in California visiting her dad, aka The Swine. He just can’t be trusted. It’s a relief to go to the airport to pick up Liss, just to make sure she’s really back. It’s not good news to see Steven The Swine deplane right behind her.

The Question of the Unfamiliar Husband By E.J. Copperman/Jeff Cohen: Review/Giveaway

by Cyntha Chow

It has been six months since Samuel Hoenig established the Questions Answered agency in Piscataway, New Jersey, and in that time he’s successfully provided eighty-two answers to an equal number of questions from clients. Having the personality traits inherent in Asperger's Syndrome (he does not consider it to be a disease), Samuel compulsively analyzes and detects in ways that are very advantageous to his newly chosen profession. Social interactions with overly emotional and needlessly polite "neurotypicals” though, prove to be far more challenging.
