|I love how cool Rafe's car looks!|
If you're new to the series, accountant and golfer Cleo saved her best friend from the slammer in IN FOR A PENNY, and in ON THE NICKEL, she sorted through Mama's evasions to prove she didn't run over the church lady. Now in DIME IF I KNOW, she has her work cut out for her. Boyfriend and golf pro Rafe Golden is accused of killing a former girlfriend. As Cleo digs into the case, she learns deep, dark secrets about Rafe and his family. The more she learns, the more she questions her trust in him.
Here's the blurb: Cleopatra Jones has visions of marriage dancing through her head, but her boyfriend, sexy golf pro Rafe Golden, is happy with the status quo. With three puppies, a Saint Bernard, two teenaged daughters, a free-spirited live-in mother, a kooky best friend, and an accounting firm to run, Cleo’s household is hopping. But still. After months of dating Rafe, her relationship should be headed somewhere.
Mama comes home engaged and the wedding is in three weeks. Cleo’s happy for her mom, and hopes Rafe takes the hint. Meanwhile, her best friend is running for mayor.
A former girlfriend of Rafe’s turns up dead in a seedy motel. His fancy red sports car was spotted there the night she died. Cleo questions him, but he swears he didn’t shoot her.
The police identify Rafe as their top suspect, but Cleo’s having none of that. She hires him a lawyer, gets crossways with his snooty family, and sets out to prove her boyfriend’s innocence.
The more she digs, the more questions arise. Rafe’s been keeping secrets from her, but are they deadly secrets?
