Midlife dating is all fun and games until someone falls into the flambe and catches on fire…and your best friend’s ex-husband is accused of murder.

When my BFF Gilly Martin requests my help in narrowing down her dance card from two great guys to one, I reluctantly agree to employ my psychic nose for the good of my bestie’s future.

But who knew dating could be deadly?

When Gilly’s ex-husband Gio Rossi is accused of murdering a former employee, I am more than okay with a certain Detective Hottie locking the jerk up and throwing away the key. However, being a jerk doesn’t make someone a killer, and at the urging of my goddaughter, I’m putting my personal feelings aside to investigate her father’s case.

It doesn’t take long for the mystery to take a few rotten turns but one thing remains clear…something stinks in Gio’s kitchen, and it’s not the food.

Note from author:

A very short story featuring Gilly’s dating life was featured in a Paranormal Women’s Fiction anthology in May 2021, titled The Importance of Being Gilly. This story incorporates the two dates, but has been changed to include a new plot line, fresh content, and it has been significantly extended into a novel to bring you this awesome new mystery in the Nora Black universe.
