            Sandy Toes by Robin Jones Gunn—tells the story of Christy and Todd.  Todd’s job

            16th Seduction by James Patterson—Lindsay Boxer must connect the dots of a deadly conspiracy before a fiendish enemy puts her on trial and walks free with blood on his hands as her investigation is scrutinized and undermined by a criminal as brilliant as any high-powered defense lawyer.
