Title: Baker’s Dozen

 

Author: Amey Zeigler

 

Genre: Romantic Suspense

 

Book Blurb:

 

Twenty-three year-old investigative journalist, Andy Miller is armed with her many disguises and creativity to take down the riff-raff of Saint Louis. When her stepbrother is murdered by the mob, Andy soon discovers she’s out of her depth.

 

Enter Hugh Donaldson who has reasons of his own for discovering the murderer. He’ll use everything in his power to achieve that, including lying to Andy about his past. Dangerous as he is attractive, his martial arts skills and his quirky ways raise Andy’s suspicions.

 

Although Andy balks at his lies, Hugh’s charms, twenty-inch biceps, and electrifying blue eyes are difficult to resist. Striking out on their own, Hugh and Andy try to outwit each other as they traverse North America tracking down people connected to the case.

 

As clues disappear and the body count climbs, Andy and Hugh must trust each other and use their combined skills to bring the murderer to justice.

 

Excerpt:

He didn’t want to have to do this, but it might be the only way she’d listen to him. He seized her gun hand, twisted it around, wresting away the gun, dropping it to the mat. He kicked it away and pinned her in a joint lock against the door with his body.

 

She kicked, she elbow-jabbed, but he was relentless. Sheer muscle and weight gave him the advantage, all combined against her.

 

“I’m not saying you can’t do it, but I’m saying leave it to the professionals or join with us. Don’t try to do this alone.

 

Brad would want you to be safe.”

 

He had to invoke his name. He had to evoke whatever emotional sway Brad had over her. Her gaze scorched him with burning intensity, her chest heaving into his with such passion.

 

Conner was a fool to have let such a creature go.

 

“Let go of me.” She scrambled around powerless against his strength.

 

“Are you still resisting?” He bent his head to whisper in her ear, his face lost its kindness. “If you work alone, then I will use you as bait. You will go bumbling around in the dark and I will capitalize on your bumbling and stumbling. I will get what I want. With or without you.”

 

Andy finally relaxed her body. He hated taking the spirit out of her. But it was the only way to keep her from getting killed.

 

“Okay, I concede,” she said.

 

He smiled inwardly, the rush of victory, conquering a well-matched foe.

 

“I knew I could persuade you.”

 

Her smile warmed him, he released his body from hers. In a flash, her leg flew up and hit him square in the nads. She opened the door behind her, and slipped out by saying, “Brad asked me to do this. So I will do this.”

 

Through the purple haze of pain, he called out, “Where will you go Andy Baker?”

 

The front door opened. “They’re hunting you,” he called.

 

The door slammed shut again.

 

He smiled despite the throbbing.

 

He liked her.

What’s the first binge-worthy book you read and why was it a must-read?

 

My first binge-worthy book was probably some teen Young Adult novel from my youth. My mom would often come in at one in the morning and hiss at me to turn off my light and go to bed. But in more recent times, I started reading the Count of Monte Cristo, and I was hooked. The thing is monstrous!  Like over a thousand pages. You can carry it around with you as extra weight for exercise. But it is oh, so good. Dumas really knew how to get you to turn the pages. Each scene left you hanging. My brother and I loved it so much, we decided to turn it into a musical. He would write the music and I would write the words obviously, since I have precisely zero musical talent. Why is it a must-read? Dumas and other of his era wrote serials, and were paid by the word, so not only did they drag things out, the tension, the drama, and the conflict, they also had to leave the audience craving more every time they ended.

 

What makes this a binge-worthy book?

 

Baker’s Dozen is a page turner. Not only must Andy discover why her stepbrother was killed, she also has to figure out who this new hot guy and why he is investigating the same mob. There are twists and turns. There is deceit and deception. But it’s all good clean fun.
