COVERT COOTCHIE-COOTCHIE-COO (4) by Ann Voss Peterson: The note attached to the baby Reed Tanner found on his boat could only have come from one person, an ex-girlfriend he hadn't seen in a year. Is the baby his? He doesn't have much time to think about it when someone starts firing at him with a high-powered rifle. Looking for someone to track the mother down -- and maybe do some babysitting -- Reed hires P.I. Josie Dionne. The two, with baby in tow, are soon trying to out-race a killer from California to Texas. Where is the baby's mother, who is the father and why does someone want the child dead? Peterson's fast-paced tale is interwoven with a connecting story about the baby's twin [see following review], all tied up in an outstanding finale.
