Police Chief Lolly LaTullipe’s professional life runs amuck when dead drug dealers start floating up on the beach. Port Serenity, Texas is known for bird watchers and bikini clad co-eds–not murder and mayhem. Lolly’s situation becomes even more complicated when a sexy undercover narcotics cop shows up eliciting thoughts of rumpled sheets and hot summer nights. This single mom of two is afraid she’s in way over her head. Christian Delacroix is jaded from years in drug enforcement and the appealing police chief has him reassessing his priorities and future. Is he ready for this small town with its cast of eccentric characters. And is he prepared for Lolly LaTulippe with her white-picket-fence life complete with a close-knit family and circle of friends? Not to mention her big shaggy dog and all the complications of life with a teenager. Are diapers, PTA meetings and football games in this cop’s future?

"Easy reading. Characters were fun. You don't usually get a tall, hunky, dark, sinister male protagonist who is by nature light-hearted and natural - not all brooding and dooms-dayish. Just the kind of quick read with enough light-hearted humor, suspense, and quirky characters." "This is a fast-paced read that includes great characters and intertwines murder, mystery, suspense, humor and romance. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough to see what would happen next. I loved the chemistry and repartee between single mom and Police Chief Lolly LaTullipe and tall, dangerous, hunky Lieutenant Christian Delacroix, undercover narc cop. A great start to the new Port Serenity, Texas Series by Ann DeFee." "When your story starts with a lady police chief pulled onto a guys lap and tasering him and he turns out to be an undercover cop you know your in for a good time. Dead bodies, a coroner who's a vet, vigilante senior citizens and a cast of great characters make this a wild ride. Can't wait for the next book." "A book that grabs you from the start and keeps you interested till the end. Lots of humor ans a mystery. Looking forward to more from this author." "This book kept me laughing the whole time I was reading it.Hero and heroine made me fall in love with both of them .Both were in denial to the attraction they felt for each other.Really really enjoyable read." "An entertaining book with some surprising twists and unexpected turns along with quite a few laughs....... And a delightful love story." "It was a wonderful, witty and sexy read. The sparks flew from the moment Lolly and Christian met. There are a lot of oddball residents in Port Serenity, adding colour and charm to the town. This was a pure delight!"
