Bookstore owner Scarlett O'Malley has gained an unfortunate reputation for seeing trouble around every corner. It doesn't help that the elderly women of the Sleuth Society hold meetings in her store. This morning they're up to their old tricks when they assume the handsome man seen helping the wealthy and elderly widow, Opal, is a gigolo.

Ex-cop Logan Wolfe has come to the town of Plentiful, Wyo., to help an old friend of his mother, and to figure out what to do with the rest of his life. After having helped take down crooked cops in Las Vegas, he's burned out and disillusioned. Feeling as if he's being watched, Logan decides to check out A Study in Scarlett bookstore. He doesn't expect to be bowled over by a redhead with a belly-button ring.

Scarlett's morning gets stranger when a woman claiming to have important information falls over dead in her store. Who is she and what was she trying to say? Egged on by the Sleuths, Scarlett decides to follow Logan to see what he is really up to. One thing she learns quickly—Logan sure can kiss!

Charming and funny, yet with an edge of poignancy, STUCK ON YOU is pure delight. Sassy Scarlett and sexy Logan are a match made in heaven. (Feb., 384 pp., $5.99)
