Cozy Days of Summer aren't always Cozy
by: Kari Lee Townsend
"The cozy days of summer aren't always cozy!"
I'm Kalli Ballas--a shy, slightly OCD fashion designer with a prissy calico cat and hand sanitizer always at the ready. I hate germs and this blistering summer heat is breeding plenty. It doesn't help that my neighbor, loud and boisterous Detective Nik Stevens, has a big, sloppy St. Bernard and a devil-may-care attitude.
Living next door to him is a nightmare!
The problem is I was adopted into a big Greek family, so I'm Greek by association, and Nik is half-Greek, which is apparently "Greek enough" for the mamas. Ever since spring fever set in for the both of them, they won't stop trying to fix us up, even though it is crystal clear that we are NOT a good match. Throw in a freak accident giving me the gift of reading minds through the power a touch--a nightmare for someone like me--and my best friend being accused of murder, and the cozy turns into chaos pretty quickly.
Is it so wrong that I just want my life to return to normal? Something tells me I will never see normal again.
So tell me, what do you all do during the cozy days of summer? Anything has to be better than solving a murder.
