Coming May 9th 2017!
Baby on Board!
Maggie Phillips is beyond ready to have her new baby so life can get back to normal. Unfortunately, “normal” for the laundry hag is a relative term. When a neighbor goes missing, Neil begs his wife to stay out of it and focus on the upcoming labor and delivery, but Maggie can’t help but poke around into the man’s life out of habit and curiosity. But when the neighbor’s body is discovered stuffed into his own freezer and his wife and new baby also go missing, it’s up to the very pregnant laundry hag to clean house and get to the bottom of yet another misadventure, even if the killer is closer to home than she ever imagined.
Murder, scandal and industrial strength juicers. What more could a mom-to-be need?

Who Needs A Hero?
A Heroine in Distress....
In the span of one afternoon, Maggie Sampson lost everything—her job,
her fiancé and her inheritance. The thing she’ll miss most though is
her mind. What else could explain her vision of the handsome and
enigmatic stranger who retrieved her engagement ring when she hurled the
rock into the Atlantic Ocean? Normal people just don’t do things like that. Sometimes fantasy is better than reality.
A Hero Who Needs Saving...
To the rest of the world, Neil Phillips is a decorated war hero, a Navy
SEAL who has what it takes to get the job done. In private he is a raw
wound with two boys, a broken marriage and a nasty case of PTSD, but
despite his personal struggles he helped Maggie when she needed it most.
Now, Maggie is on a mission and she’s not going anywhere until she
returns the favor—with interest.

Maggie Phillips hasn't had it easy. As the wife of a retired Navy
SEAL and the adoptive mother of two little hellions, Maggie is
constantly seeking new ways to improve her family's financial situation.

term 'eccentric'), never imagining she will end up as the sole alibi
for a man with a fascination for medieval torture devices when he is
brought up on murder charges.
While Maggie struggles to
prove the man's innocence, her deadbeat brother arrives, determined to
sell Maggie and Neil on his next great scheme and to mooch with a
vengeance. If that isn't bad enough, her in-laws (cutthroat corporate
attorneys), descend on the house, armed with disapproval and
condemnation for the family's annual Thanksgiving celebration.
the police investigation intensifies, Maggie searches for the killer
among the upper echelon of Hudson, Massachusetts, in the only way she
can--by scrubbing their thrones. Of the porcelain variety, that is....
