Breezee's Shared Custody

Recently divorced loan payment advisor Dave Davis wants to move on with his life. Trouble is, he hasn’t gotten over his hot-to-trot kindergarten teacher ex-wife Sheila. It would be easier if he didn’t have to see her, but that is unavoidable; they share custody of a darling little Basset Hound named Breezee, the dog that Dave brought up from a pup. 


Sure, Sheila is using Breezee to keep close to Dave. She loves him and he loves her, she knows it, so it’s only right for them to be together. This time she plans on giving up all other men to win him back, and that won’t be easy. She's been a free spirit since the age of fourteen, thanks to her mother. 


Career criminal Leonard Tarnowski, Jr, a crazy but capable arsonist for hire, wants Sheila Davis for his very own. That she seems to be longing for her ex is a problem, but eliminating problems is Lenny’s job. There’s also another guy that must go. Lenny isn’t too fond of Davis’s dog, either.

1st Book of the Desiree and Kevin Chronicles

 

Serious-minded Kevin Johnson lives with his medical practitioner parents in a medical community. He has no interest in the field of medicine, though; he practices karate. But he isn’t very good at it and doesn’t actually like it. He does it because he sees himself as a wimpy little kid that needs to toughen up, and because his cousin and best friend Brian likes it. Brian likes it because he’s kick-butt good at it. Kevin’s real interests are auto racing, particularly the big-league NASCAR stuff, and girls, specifically the prettiest girl in school, Bonnie McGee. Unfortunately, he has no practical experience with either. He’s never been to a race track of any kind, and he’s never been on a date in his life, something he hopes to correct soon. But right now he’s pondering the state of his parents’ marriage, fearing that it’s in trouble, that he might somehow be partially responsible if his father isn't really his father. Kevin's parents stop his thought process when they drop the bomb: they're going on a humanitarian mission, and he's going to rural Wisconsin to stay with grandparents he’d only met once, totally ruining his summer.

Formerly titled Baby Grand II: The Conspiracy
 

2nd Book of the Desiree and Kevin Chronicles

 

Kevin and his grandparents, plus Desiree and hers, prepare to launch his career in a Baby Grand, cars two-thirds the size of the NASCAR ones they resemble. They're doing it on the sly so as not to stress-out his on the brink of divorce parents, which is causing him a little stress of his own. The only thing worse is his fear of failing. But since everyone is counting on him to uphold the family name, he puts on a brave face. Then there’s a sudden downturn in their moods, giving him further doubts, and Desiree won't even talk about it. 


Having been sworn to secrecy has Desiree in a quandary. Maybe keeping the truth from Kevin is for his own good, but what if it's not? And what'll happen when, not if, he finds out she's been holding out on him? Somehow she has to protect his ego while betraying him, even though he'll probably never forgive her. But that isn't her greatest fear; she's afraid for him.

3rd Book of the Desiree and Kevin Chronicles 

 

Kevin lands a deal to drive professional football player Andy Baldacci’s full-size, high-powered late model stock car. But another company with a controversial sponsor takes control of the team and Kevin, their real objective. He doesn’t want to drive for them, but his family stands to lose everything if he doesn’t. Making matters worse, they fire Desiree.


Through binoculars from the grandstands, Desiree spots Kevin's so-called personal assistant in a skin-tight imitation racing suit. The only thing racing about it, Desiree figures, is what that bimbo is doing to the pulse rate of every nearby male over the age of ten. Suddenly seeing logic in the "keep your friends close and your enemies closer" idiom, Desiree manages to get herself and her friend Tiffany onto the team of a cute little driver that has eyes for Kevin. Then the real trouble begins.
