Excerpt from Hounded

In case you missed it, I released Michelle, Between the Cracks #3 last week! And today, I have an author interview posted on Danielle Lincoln Hannah’s site about the Between the Cracks series. (And incidentally, I just finished draft one of Ronnie, Between the Cracks #5 on Friday.)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, read the rules at A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along!

Hounded is the second book I have read by David Rosenfelt in the Andy Carpenter series. A wealthy Defense Attorney who rescues dogs and is married to a private investigator, Andy Carpenter is a funny character who always has something to say. These books always have me laughing out loud.

We get back to the house, and Laurie is waiting for me downstairs. “Ricky is up in his room,” she says.

“Ricky has a room?”

She nods. “The one next to ours. I’m sorry we didn’t talk about this before, Andy, but I knew you wouldn’t refuse Pete.”

Andy Carpenter isn’t sure what to think when he gets a mysterious phone call from a good friend, policeman Pete Stanton, asking him to drop everything, drive to an unfamiliar address, and bring his girlfriend, Laurie Collins. He certainly isn’t expecting to show up at a crime scene. But that’s exactly where he arrives—at the house where Pete has just discovered the body of ex-convict Danny Diza. Upstairs are Danny’s now orphaned eight-year-old son and basset hound. And that, Andy discovers, is why he and Laurie were called to the scene—Pete wants them to take care of the boy and the dog so they won’t get thrown into the “system.” This is already asking a lot, but soon Pete needs another big favor from Andy. Pete himself has come under suspicion for Danny’s murder, and he needs defense attorney Andy to represent him…and to find out what really happened in Danny’s house that day.
