Lee Alvarez is a ferret. Not the cute, 4-legged kind but the cute 2-legged kind sniffing out dastardly cybercrimes and the occasional murder for Discretionary Inquiries, a family-owned detective agency in the heart of Silicon Valley. This set is for cozy readers who can’t get enough of a smart-mouthed woman sleuth out to please her never-had-a-bad-hair-day mother, computer-genius brother, gourmet chef uncle, and energetic orange and white cat, Tugger.
Just because a man cheats on his wife and makes Danny DeVito look tall, dark, and handsome is that any reason to kill him? Join Lee Alvarez, half Latina, half WASP, and 100% as she is guilted by her aristocratic mother into tailing a friend’s husband to a seedy warehouse. There, he’s killed on her watch. She also finds an abandoned kitten destined to become hers. But in between kitty litter, kibble, and purrs, she’s determined to find out whodunit.

Young Adult Loners & Outcasts Fiction

Hubbard is a huge loser. Literally. His nickname at Happy Valley High School is Neanderthal because he’s so enormous—6’6” and 250 pounds to be exact. He has nobody at school, and life in his trailer-park home has gone from bad to worse ever since his older brother’s suicide. And there’s no one Cliff hates more than the nauseatingly cool quarterback Aaron Zimmerman, who after a near-death experience claims God gave him a list of things to do to make Happy Valley High suck less. And God said there’s only one person who can help: Neanderthal.

To his own surprise, Cliff says he’s in. As he and Aaron make their way through the List, which involves a vindictive English teacher, a mysterious computer hacker, a decidedly unchristian cult of Jesus Teens, the local drug dealers, and the meanest bully at HVHS, Cliff feels like he’s part of something for the first time since losing his brother.
