"...a roller-coaster ride read that will leave you breathless at times, white-knuckled at others."

Blind dates give everyone the shivers...with or without a murder attached to them. Jo Tulip is a sassy single woman full of household hints and handy advice for every situation. Her first romantic outing in months is a blind date—okay, the Hall of Fame of Awful Blind Dates—but things go from bad to worse when her date drops dead and Jo finds herself smack in the middle of a murder investigation.

With the help of her best friend, Danny, and faith in God, Jo attempts to solve one exciting mystery while facing another: Why is love always so complicated?

Book 1

“You are going to love this mystery.”
   —Five Star Book Reviews

Meet Jo Tulip—definitely a smart chick. She's a 21st-century female MacGyver who writes a helpful hints column and helps solve mysteries in her spare time.

Meet Danny Watkins, Jo's best friend. He's a talented photographer who longs to have his work recognized but finds himself taking prom photos and pet portraits instead.

Together, this mismatched duo works to solve a local murder—much to the dismay of the police, who were hoping for an open-and-shut case. But there's something not quite right about the evidence. Jo knows it and Danny believes her.

Turns out, sleuthing brings out the best and the worst in their relationship. As Jo tries to solve the mystery in her neighborhood, she realizes she's facing an even bigger mystery: What's going on in her heart?
