Dream career—gone. The perfect boyfriend—just out of reach. Temp jobs—mind-numbingly dull. Until she finds the body.
After Scarlett Chase is fired from her dream job, she is stuck working temp jobs while she figures out what to do with her life.
Her current job of the week might be the most boring of them all until a flash of lightning during a spring storm plunges the entire office building into darkness.
When the lights come back on, Scarlett finds Willow Dawn, the eccentric soul healer from upstairs, lying dead behind the dumpster out back. Too bad handsome construction worker Austin Howard is standing over the body holding what could either be a tool of the trade or the murder weapon.
But not everything may be as it seems. In fact, while Scarlett is hunting down clues and trying to save Willow Dawn’s now-abandoned emotional support goat and hamsters, she learns that almost every tenant in the building is hiding a secret or two.
Scarlett can’t help but try to untangle the web of lies and mystery. Soon she finds herself in a race to uncover the murderer before she ends up being the next victim.
Murder—unlike her job—is not temporary.
Rating: Mild+. Some violence or horror.
