Suspense/Thriller of approximately 83,000 words.
Josephine Waters is not a psychopath. She does have the ability to turn off emotions making her a lot of money. When the organization that saved her from the streets wrote her death warrant, she is forced to run. Limited time and frozen assets, Jo returns home to tie up loose ends before disappearing, attempt to clear her name and kill a man. However, she finds managing a large home, twin girls, when her true nemesis is revealed – cooking.
The William’s Rodeo Bull Ranch is under scrutiny when three prize-winning bulls die under mysterious circumstances. Tucker Williams runs the family business after the tragic death of his parents and returns home after military hardship. After fourteen years, his first love returns asking for a job and a place to stay. Tucker Williams would put her to work, mucking barns and cleaning toilets and when she’d had enough, would make her suffer by breaking her heart like she broke his.
Jo works to clear her name with a gun in one hand and a vacuum in the other as the housekeeper for the Williams Ranch. However, she didn’t realize it was far more dangerous to be near Tucker, her first love, than terrorists with automatic weapons. After trying to learn the domestic duties of a large house with little girls, rodeo bulls, and outwit a possessed rooster named Dueeze, she learned that maybe there could be happy endings. Placing all her cards on the table, she would fight for what they lost and the possible happily ever after. Would he ever forgive her for putting his family in danger, and using them to avoid the electric chair.
