Book two of The Law Game features a cyber Robin-Hood-esque antihero who must evade or convert the woman tracking her.
Archer Securities has a problem. Someone is stealing more than just stationary, and the losses are adding up.
Enter Laila Hollister, private investigator. As a favor to her uncle, an executive at Archer, she agrees to investigate. Laila tackles the case with hard-edged determination befitting the PIs she’s read about in novels.
Trinity Washington works as a systems support specialist for Archer. On the surface, Trinity lives a simple, orderly life. She’s single, cares for her mom who suffers from early onset Alzheimer’s, volunteers at a local homeless shelter, and makes it a point never to litter. She’s a letter-of-the-law kind of girl.
Except when she’s not.
With Laila closing in on the truth, will Trinity be caught with her hand in the corporate cookie jar? Or will Laila realize who the real criminal is?
Jove was born and raised against a backdrop of orchards and potato fields. The youngest of four children, she was raised in a conservative, Christian home and began asking why at a very young age, much to the consternation of her mother and grandmother. At the customary age of eighteen, she fled southern Idaho in pursuit of broader minds and fewer traffic jams involving the local livestock. The road didn’t end in Portland, Oregon, but there were many confusing freeway interchanges that a girl from the sticks was ill-prepared to deal with. As a result, she has lived in the Portland metro area for over twenty years and still can’t figure out how she manages to spend so much time in traffic when there’s not a stray sheep or cow in sight.
She lives with her partner, a woman deserving of sainthood for withstanding life with Jove for so many years. Between them they share a collection of six children, one dog, one cat, nine chickens, a mortgage payment, one sedan, and a cushy SUV big enough to hold the Lesbian Brady Bunch on their family outings. One day she hopes to live in a house that doesn’t generate a never ending honey-do list.
Incidentally, she never stopped asking why, but did expand her arsenal of questions to include who, what, when, where and, most important of all, how. In those questions, a story is born.
Her books include Uncommon Romance, Love and Devotion, Indelible, Chaps, Split the Aces, and Edge of Darkness.
