Cooking the Books!

Cooking the Books by Bonnie Calhoun

Sloane Templeton doesn't just step off the page. She flies off of it taking the reader on one quirky dangerous journey.

Filled with wacky characters Cooking the Books will have you holding your breath right along with Sloane when she discovers overcooked eggs. Her aunt is a wana-be-gourmet chef and Sloane does what she can to keep her aunt out of trouble, but she is on a first name basis with the fire and police departments.

Sloane has a sarcastic wit that leaves you grinning. Her choice in men had me screaming no not him he’s a creep, get away far far away!

Sloan is capable of handling the many frightening situations she finds herself involved in. Who knew going from a computer career to a bookstore her could be so dangerous?

Calhoun kept me out of my bed until I finished the last page. Part of the appeal of Cooking the Books for me was the glimpse of an inner city culture which is a 360 for this small-town Midwesterner.
Cooking the Books is filled with danger, humor and of course snarky remarks. Get this book you'll love it.

Back Cover Copy
After her mother dies from a heart attack, Sloane Templeton goes from Cyber Crimes Unit to bookstore owner before she can blink. She also "inherits" a half-batty store manager; a strange bunch of little old people from the neighborhood who meet at the store once a week, but never read books, called the Granny Oakleys Book Club; and Aunt Verline, who fancies herself an Iron Chef when in reality you need a cast iron stomach to partake of her culinary disasters. And with a group like this you should never ask, “What else can go wrong?”

A lot! Sloane begins to receive cyber threats. While Sloane uses her computer forensic skills to uncover the source of the threats, it is discovered someone is out to kill her. Can her life get more crazy?
