I’ve always suspected her days are 36 hours CB long.

Thank you for having me.
  Diane Kelly
Wonderful! So glad she enjoyed it! I hope she is doing well! Book #2 will be called The Proof is in the Poison. Cover and release date coming soon! It should release around the same date next year, so my best guess is early July or late June. Thanks so much for contacting me! You made my day!

I gave this book to a friend to read while she convalesced. She is loving it and now desperate for #2! Looks as if you may not have published it yet? ? Any thoughts on when it will be available??
  Diane Kelly
Thanks, Rita! You put a smile on my face!
