“Room Service & Murder” by Melissa Baldwin
There’s never a dull day working in the hotel industry. Drug busts, arrests, plenty of clandestine escapades, and parties so wild they’d put fraternities to shame. The last thing Casey Cooper expected was to walk into a guest room and discover the lifeless body of her friend.
Though all signs point to a self-inflicted death, Casey doesn’t believe it. On a truth-seeking journey to find justice for her friend, suddenly everyone looks like a suspect. Could it be the former child actress, the over-worked assistant, a long-lost relative, or even the delicious new manager who always seems to be distracting Casey from her mission to find her friend’s killer?
Can Casey find the truth before the body count rises and she becomes the next victim?
I feel heat rise to my cheeks. I’ve never been great at accepting compliments to begin with, and one coming from Max makes me even more nervous. “Thank you,” I say, looking down at my hands. When I look up, he’s watching me intently. I study his structured jawline and notice his full lips. Gah, why does he have to be so attractive?
“I hope I didn’t make you feel uncomfortable,” he says. “It just feels good to be able to talk to someone without the formalities. I told you I’ve always run a tight ship at my hotels, and for the first time in my career, I feel like I can’t get a grasp on this place. Every time I think I’m making some progress, something else happens.”
“I can help you,” I say. “This job is all I have. That’s why I want to do whatever I can to help us through this. I’m not going to stand by and let The Fountain Rose fall apart. It means too much to me.”
He smiles. “Good. Then we’re going to continue to work with the police and get to the bottom of these tragedies together.”
Together? That sounds good to me. Really good.
