FINALLY, Mayer and Crusie’s Lavender’s Blue is out in e-book for a rationally affordable price of $4.99. It’s the first in a series that was going to be a trilogy, but they got so caught up in the town and the community and Liz and Vince and all the details they’d stuffed the book with that they’ve decided to do three more, once the Rocky Start books are done. So that’ll be Lavender’s Blue, Rest in Pink, One in Vermillion, Blood Curdling Green, Yellow Brick Roadkill, and Blue Blood. (Titles subject to change since the last three books haven’t been written yet.)
So, “From the NY Times Bestselling duo that wrote Agnes and the Hitman, the first book in a new series.”
Liz Danger has come home after fifteen years to deliver a giant teddy bear for her mother’s birthday (color: Guilt Red) when a cop with a great ass picks her up for speeding, fixes the missing lug nuts in her back wheel, pulls her out of a ditch, doesn’t give her a ticket, and helps her avoid her family. This is a man with real potential.
Vince Cooper picks up Liz for speeding and his life gets a lot more interesting. Then he picks her up again in the local bar the next night and realizes that “interesting” doesn’t begin to describe what’s going to happen to him with Liz in his life.
As Liz navigates her dysfunctional family, her flamboyant boss phoning in from Chicago, her still-interested ex, a dachshund with issues, a disaster of a wedding, assault, murder, and three hundred and ninety-three teddy bears, Vince shows up to get her through, even though he knows that the real peril for him in Burney is the one who came with her own warning label, Liz Danger.
“A rare delight. Mayer’s delectably dry sense of humor perfectly complements Crusie’s brand of sharp wit . . . a sexy, sassy, and smart combination of romance and suspense that is simply irresistible.”—Booklist on Don’t Look Down
“A comic caper and raucous romance…laugh-out-loud funny…a fun ride.”—Kirkus Reviews on Agnes and the Hitman
“A bubbly novel with amusing banter and…moments of poignancy.”—Publishers Weekly on Agnes and the Hitman
