Sinking Ships: An Abishag’s First Mystery: Nineteen-year-old Leslie Greene finds a way to solve her money woes. Having had four contract marriages, her friend Jen assures Leslie that nothing will go wrong. After signing with the Abishag agency (a firm that supplies temporary wives to comfort dying men), Leslie marries a comatose 83-year-old executive. Three weeks of training and armed with the Handbook for Abishag Wives, Leslie arrives at Thomas Crowder’s Palos Verdes home … and finds a murdered hospice aide. An old Portuguese shipwreck, an antique stack of hidden ledgers, her university housemates and a red-haired agency lawyer are all that stand between Leslie and a vengeful killer. Available on Amazon.

“I don’t want you to be uncomfortable,” he said quietly, just before he sucked her ear lobe into his hot mouth.
