Pity Date (Pity Series Book 1) (affiliate link)
A week ago, if you told me my boyfriend was cheating on me, I would have called you a liar.
If you said a movie star would walk into my bakery and offer to help make my ex jealous, I would have thought you’d eaten one too many of my grandmother’s special brownies.
And if you had the audacity to suggest my fake date would turn into the love of my life? I would have told you to stop toying with me. I’ve been through enough disappointment lately.
There’s no way a movie star is going to fall in love with a bakery owner from Wisconsin. This isn’t a Hallmark movie.
But I’m starting to wish it was…

A dead body. A burned masterpiece. And two investigators with nothing but lies—and smoldering chemistry—between them.
I used to be a rising star in the FBI’s Art Crimes Team. Now I’m back in my tiny Michigan hometown, caring for my sick sister and working as a bored-out-of-my-skull insurance adjuster. Until, finally, an assignment that’s right up my alley—a claim for a million-dollar painting damaged in a fatal house fire.
From the get-go, something’s not adding up. The police are blowing it off. My boss is pressuring me to wrap it up ASAP. Worse, I’m paired with an art conservator who’s the kind of dark-haired, chisel-faced, Italian-accented distraction I don’t need.

But though accustomed to murder and its methods as frequent topics of conversation, Phyllida is unprepared for the sight of a very real, very dead body on the library floor . . .
