Kandi Cain inherited her Dr. Doolittle abilities from her grandmother and became a psychic pet detective. To her dismay, she just acquired the power to communicate with the spirit world, but dead people give her the willies.

Just when Kandi thought her life couldn’t get more complicated, the neighbor from hell moved in next door. The nasty guy’s name is Dutch Callaghan. How can someone so gorgeous be such a dick? Kandi could chalk some of it up to his job. Dutch is a Phoenix PD homicide cop.

Kandi’s current case is rescuing a Yorkie from a brutal dog fighting ring. Little does she know her dog napping suspect is involved in a series of brutal murders. Disguised as an elderly nun, Kandi rescues the Yorkie and, in the process, blows the hell out of Dutch’s undercover operation.

Kandi now finds herself a person of interest in her client’s murder and her sexy-as-hell, pain-in-the-butt neighbor is in hot pursuit of the Ninja Nun. Is Dutch about to slap the cuffs on? Only time will tell.

Enjoy an Exclusive Excerpt

A muscle twitched in Dutch’s jaw. “I checked you out. They say you can talk to the animals. That you’re a regular Doctor Doolittle.”

I cocked a skeptical eyebrow. “Don’t tell me you believe in all that woo-woo stuff?”

“It would explain a lot.”

Holy crap! Was he serious? I gave him pitying smile. “The next thing you’ll be accusing me of is talking to the dead.”

“Can you talk to the dead?” Dutch studied my face intently. “I can take you to the morgue and you can ask Maria who killed her.”

“Very funny,” I replied angrily.

“I will get the truth from you, one way or another.”

I jumped to my feet. “Is that a threat?”

“It’s a promise.” Dutch rose to his full height and pointed at Tinkerbell. “Is that Maria’s dog?”

“No. Tink is my dog.” There was no way in hell I’d let him take her.

“Strange. Maria’s dog looks just like her and I’ve never seen a Yorkie at your house.”

“I just got her from North Phoenix Animal Rescue. I can show you the paperwork.” After I made a quick call to Harry.

“Good. Bring it to the station tomorrow and we’ll continue our conversation. I’ll expect you at eight sharp.” Dutch walked off.

“Hey! I have a client at eight.”

“Reschedule them,” Dutch called over his shoulder.

“And if I don’t?”

“I’ll arrest you.”

I drew a quick, angry breath. “For what, princess?”

Dutch stopped and turned to face me. “Interfering with my investigation and assaulting a police officer.”

“What evidence do you have I’m involved in any of this?”

“My gut.”

I laughed. “Your gut? Maybe you’re just gassy.”

“My gut is never wrong.”

“The only thing that will stand up in court is cold, hard evidence and you don’t have any,” I responded with cutting pleasantness.

“Sweetheart, I always clear my cases. Always. It’s only a matter of time before I slap the cuffs on.”

I made a rude noise. “Princess, you couldn’t find your own butt with both hands.”

“Keep pushing me and you aren’t going to like the consequences.” Dutch’s voice was a low growl.

“Time to go.” Jana grabbed my arm and dragged me away. “Piss him off enough and he’ll make it his mission in life to investigate every aspect of your business. Do you really want that?”

“No. God no.”

About the Author: I was a 9-1-1 dispatcher for the Glendale Police Department and to keep from going totally bonkers – I mean people have no idea what a real emergency is. Take this for example: I answered, “9-1-1 emergency, what’s your emergency?” And this hysterical woman yelled, “My bird is in a tree.” Sometimes I really couldn’t help myself, so I said, “Birds have a tendency to do that, ma’am.” The woman screeched, “No! You don’t understand. My pet parakeet is in the tree. I’ve just got to get him down.” Like I said, not a clue. “I’m sorry ma’am but we don’t get birds out of trees.” The woman then cried, “But… What about my husband? He’s up there, too.” See what I had to deal with? To keep from hitting myself repeatedly in the head with my phone I took up writing.
