Breezee's Shared Custody

Divorce, Murder, and the Dog

Banker Dave Davis is arrested in the middle of the night, his dog Breezee the Basset Hound howling in protest as they're hauling him away. The charge? Killing one of his oversexed ex-wife’s boyfriends, who'd also been Dave’s boss. 


While Dave is languishing behind bars with his biker cellmate, his uncle, a former prosecutor, forms the defense team. Besides himself he has his old retired investigator, a former police detective turned part-time private eye, and Dave’s dog.


The DA believes they have the right man, but one of the detectives responsible for Dave’s incarceration does not. So she digs into the case without letting on how enamored she is with their handsome suspect. 


Will Dave ever see the light of day again? If not, will Breezee get visitation rights? Will the real killer ever be found? If so, will the smitten detective get her man? And whatever happened to Dave’s girlfriend, who vanished before he was arrested?

Baby Grand Legacy

Formerly titled Baby Grand: The Beginning
 

Baby Grand, Book 1


Kevin Johnson’s physician parents have him attending the finest school in the area. Ironically, it’s a Catholic school, and they aren’t the least bit religious. But Kevin likes it, likes that his cousin Brian goes there, likes a girl he met there. He’s looking forward to a wonderful summer with her, until his parents ruin everything. They’re going away on a medical mission, and he’s going away to live with grandparents he met once. His grandmother had been an art teacher and his grandfather a mechanical engineer, whose father drove race cars for notorious gangster Al Capone during the Golden Age of Sports, then ended up in prison. That’s the part of the family scandal that Kevin’s parents revealed, but there’s more, and he’s determined to find out everything. What else could he possibly do out in the middle of nowhere with two old people?

Baby Grand, Book 2

 

Kevin Johnson and his grandparents, plus his girlfriend and hers, are launching his racing career. They’re doing it on the sly so his stressed-out, on-the-brink-of-divorce parents won’t find out, but Kevin is getting a little stressed-out himself. Everyone expects him to continue the family legacy where his great-grandfather left off, but that was over eighty years ago. None of them had been alive during the Golden Age of Sports, when the legendary driver did miraculous things behind the wheel. How can Kevin live up to that?

Baby Grand Opportunity

Formerly titled Baby Grand III: The Big Time
 

Baby Grand, Book 3

 

Kevin Johnson’s parents sign him up to drive for Baldacci racing, a partnership headed by football great Andy Baldacci. But Andy’s own partners sell him out, leaving controlling interest with a company that Kevin wants nothing to do with. He’s under contract, though, and has no say in the matter. His girlfriend is even less pleased when she's sent packing and banned from being seen with him in public.


They can’t, however, stop her from being with Kevin on his own time, but he's going on the road for extended periods. So she pitches her chassis set-up skills to another team, to stay in the game and keep an eye on the competition … competition for Kevin. It isn’t that she doesn’t trust him; she just doesn’t trust the cute little driver she’ll be working for, or Kevin’s newly assigned personal assistant.

But when trespassers get close to their hidden airstrip, it’s obvious that their plan has a flaw. They need more men for security, and they’re already stretched thin. Fortunately, their leader Jake Olson is in the right place at the right time to talk a former dog scout handler down from the roof of a ten-story building. He’s suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, but still has the ability to train dogs. Jake and his crew provide a place for him to live, professional help, and a provisional club membership. By the time the new guy gets their canine security team up and running, he’s a full member, happy and flush with cash. They all are until Jake goes missing.
