Buying Time

"My Life is a freakin three-ring circus and I'm locked in the trunk of the clown car." - Aspen Moore


Check out the review on            
The Book Addict's Guide            

 Aspen Moore has a new life in a new city, complete with a new career. As a personal concierge, she sells her time to those who don't have enough. One of the perks of her business is focusing on other people's lives so she doesn't have to face the demons in her own.

When Aspen's most loyal customer dies and his suicide looks eerily like murder, she anonymously tips off the police so she won't expose a secret she desperately needs to keep. But murder and mayhem are a bothersome duo and she soon finds herself caught in a web of chaos.

A string of crimes, long enough to make a real detective sweat, threaten her livelihood and ultimately her life. Aspen's only hope is to untangle the mess before they cause permanent damage. Pursuing the truth means solving the mystery of a decade-old land deal, while juggling a quirky DJ and his dog, an eccentric paraplegic, a curious set of twins, and a flirtatious neighbor with spy gadgets.

With each passing hour the danger increases and for Aspen, buying time isn't an option...
