Losing a cushy marketing job only to end up driving heavy equipment at the landfill would be a tough blow for most women.
But JJ Shultz isn’t most women, so she gamely swaps office politics and dry cleaning bills for a chance to crush garbage with a 150,000-pound machine. As it turns out, she doesn’t miss her old life too much…though her love life was sure a lot simpler when she didn’t wear a hardhat every day. Between her hot new co-workers and her on-again-off-again boyfriend, JJ has her hands full.
But the drama kicks into high gear when JJ and her sister, Lori, find evidence of a counterfeit handbag operation – something local police deem only slightly more urgent than collecting fruit flies. JJ soon finds herself unraveling a sinister plot in the company of a tie-tugging accountant, a straight-to-video action hero turned secretary, a suspicious but sneaky-hot engineer, and a host of other characters with questionable hygiene and morals.
Tawna Fenske has traveled a career path that meandered from newspaper reporter to English teacher in Venezuela to medical marketing geek to PR manager for her city’s tourism bureau.
An avid globetrotter and social media fiend, she blogs at Don’t Pet Me, I’m Writing, routinely overshares on Facebook, and can be found making tasteless jokes in 140 characters or less on Twitter.
Aside from the interactive romantic capers she writes for Coliloquy (think choose-your-own-adventure meets romantic comedy), she is the author of Making Waves and Believe it or Not, and also writes novellas and novels for Entangled Publishing.
She currently live in Bend, Oregon with her fiancé, his offspring and more pets than she's willing to admit.
