Brandy Alexander. Names for a cold drink and a hot babe. In New Orleans the combination can be dangerous. So with a name like Brandy Alexander – it seems her life’s course was already determined.
On the day she was born, her father and uncle waited in a bar and decided that Brandy would be a great name for a girl with the last name of Alexander. Her mother reminds her is it a great one for a stripper and blames Brandy—as if she had anything to do with it.
Being childhood sweethearts with her police officer boyfriend, doesn’t stop her from kissing a handsome stranger at a Mardi Gras Parade.
A kiss that rocks her world and complicates her life. Before she has a chance to find out his name or who he is – he is shot! By the time an ambulance arrives, he has asked for her help in saving Isabella.
Isabella is not at all what she expected.
As Brandy tries to unravel the sudden complications in her life, the Mardi Gras parade serves as a backdrop and foil to her search for answers. Disguised identities in crowded and narrow streets, colorful characters and a four-legged femme fatale add up to magic, mystery and dazzling reveals.
New Orleans is a character of its own in this whimsical story of tangled lives, plot twists and historical references. Just as music is an essential part of New Orleans, so is the lyrical lexicon of club patrons, locals and a friend called Duck Man.
Brandy Alexander lives up to her name in the first of The Go Cup Chronicle Series. She stirs up trouble but will she remain unshaken?
Maybe she shouldn’t have answered the phone…
Brandy Alexander never set out to be solving crimes. Just because meeting her new boyfriend, Jiff Heinkel, had once thrust her into one, that’s no reason why she should be the first phone call made when her friend discovers a dead body at her new Bed & Breakfast. Especially when offering Julia help will throw Brandy right back together with her ex – Police Detective Dante Deedler.
Maybe she should have just said no…
Likewise, the last thing Brandy needs while searching for the truth behind what happened at the B & B is to find herself Maid of Honor in a great big Italian Wedding. But how can she say no when the mother she always manages to disappoint is saying yes. Now she’s squeezing fittings for unflattering dresses in with investigating and questioning people who knew the victim.
Maybe she can get through this and keep her sanity…
But, keeping the two men who both seem to want something from her away from each other while helping her very guilty looking friend and the kooky B&B staff, has her craving nothing more than a table for one and a whole King Cake.
There’s no place like New Orleans to have a good crime.
