It's a short novel (only 42,000 words or so), so what Amazon calls "a short read." I've put it on KU in case someone wants to read it as part of their subscription. I am rather pleased with it. If you'd like to check it out, you can do so here.
Here's the blurb:
Lark Riordan works long hours as a crime scene investigator. She does not expect to return home to find one of her neighbors murdered.
Max Switek is the decorated homicide detective who catches the case. He is familiar with the victim, as he is with all of Lark’s neighbors.
He spends a lot of time with Lark, and not just in a professional capacity.
This does not go unnoticed by either his father—a cop-turned-judge—or her mother—the ex-wife of a womanizing actor who’s just been nominated for an Oscar®.
Who just happen to be married to each other. Even for L.A., it’s complicated. But so is the case, and there’s no shortage of people who wanted Jimmy Morrissey dead, and the chief suspect out of the way.
Lark and Max take the case personally, and with help from a surprising source, they’re going to solve it.
Now if they could only do something about their love life.

Kailin Gow on Goodreads. She's pretty amazing. Here's her website.
It's also available on Kindle, but it's $2.99 there. It's the first in a new series, so if you like it, there are more to come!

I remember the first year "ghost pumpkins" came on the market. I was in Los Angeles, working for Los Angeles magazine, and a rep from one of the local supermarkets came in with the white pumpkins. We were all amazed. (Now, apparently, they have blue pumpkins. I'd like to see a black pumpkin. I bet people would snap those up.)
I have a bunch of October/Halloween-themed book reviews coming up. Stay tuned.
