~All Twila has to do is solve a murder, save some abused dogs and ... oh, yeah, not be pregnant.~
Redneck P.I. Twila Taunton cannot believe she is working for Jimmie-Ray, the man who stood her up on her wedding day. But she can't allow gentle Pam Taylor to go to prison for a murder she did not commit. Twila sets out to hunt down the real killer, with the help of hacker and mean guitarist Gasser Cunha, her hard-drinking great aunt Essie, and office assistant LaMercy Howard, who reluctantly agrees to go Goth. When she discovers an illegal puppy mill, and a possible dog fighting ring, Twila calls on a vigilante biker gang and her long distance lover, Harland to help.
Oh... and she might be pregnant.
The Internet + an unusual camera + a college project + Divine's Emporium = London Holiday. But who--or what--is London Holiday?
It started with an overnight stay at Divine's Emporium and a high school computer programming assignment. Athena found an unusual video camera, hooked it up to her computer, and video taped her cousin, London, whom everyone called Doni. She thought nothing of it, after all the other odd events of that night.
After all, Neighborlee, Ohio was the weirdness capital of the United States, and Divine's Emporium was the caretaker, the way to control all that weirdness and keep the magic tamed. At least, that was what everyone who saw the strange things and people and events chose to believe.
Three years later, in an experimental computer class in college, Athena and her teammates chose to create a social media site as their project. The site, called FlopDrop, needed a hostess. Doni agreed to be the foundation for all the images of the hostess, whom they named London Holiday.
To the surprise of the team and the class -- and the disgust of their rivals and enemies -- FlopDrop took off. London Holiday and her CGI friends became overnight Internet sensations. London seemed to take on a life of her own.
By the time Athena and Doni realized that their artificial person had become a self-aware Artificial Intelligence, they weren't quite sure what that harmless experimentation three years ago had created. Were they midwives at the birth of a new lifeform … or repeating Dr. Frankenstein's mistakes on an even bigger scale?
Fortunately, all this was happening in Neighborlee, where outsiders didn't seem to notice the background weirdness, and residents either shrugged it off as, "So what else is new?" or had a good idea what to do to fix the problem.
Twila's a Redneck and proud of it. Hunky Harland O'Connor's a P.I. with a target on his back. An explosive situation!
Twila Taunton hates living in Yankee territory and has vowed never to allow a man into her life again. Everything is turned upside down when she invites hunky P.I. Harland O'Connor to the company picnic and she looks into his bedroomy eyes. Even worse, his equally as hunky twin brother makes her overlook her cop allergy.
Twila finds herself ducking bullets, and when Harland is wounded, she steps in to pinch-hit for him. Her lack of city-sophistication and disregard for political correctness help her solve some tough cases. And then someone tries to blow her up. She and Harland are soon caught in a dizzy, dangerous tangle that could cost them more than their lives.
