From author Erin Huss comes an "uproariously funny" (InD'Tale Magazine) new mystery...
When Cambria Clyne—klutzy, twenty-something single mom—takes the job of an apartment manager at an LA complex, she hopes her run of bad luck is finally coming to an end. She's got a nice home for her daughter, a steady source of income, and the cute maintenance guy is certainly a nice perk! But her luck takes a bad turn again when a dead body turns up, a crime spree takes over the community, and Cambria finds her complex squarely at the center of it all!
With her dream job suddenly on the line, Cambria dons her detective hat to get to the truth—after all, she's watched enough crime shows on TV to know how to catch a perp! Or so she hopes as she wades through a streaker in apartment 40, an ex-con with a shady agenda, an overly frisky retired couple, and the suspiciously sneaky dealings of the dentist in apartment 36. But will Cambria be able to catch a killer... or will she get caught up in his game and lose it all?

French Vanilla and Felonies
A cozy mystery is a must in my day. Discovering a author who is able to combine mystery, romance, and humor is delightful. Thanks to Erin Huss, I have laughed aloud.
This is hilarious. Cambrian is from the school of too much crime tv show watching. I laughed out loud my way through this fast paced and entertaining mystery as Cambria decides it is her duty to discover whodunnit.
A Delightful Surprise
Feeling that she has no other job options, young single-mom Cambria needs the job as an LA apartment manager. As it turns out, there’s a reason the job is always open, as the relative of the owner makes managing the complex impossible. Despite her misgivings, Cambria moves in, and from there on her surprising ability to handle problems is matched by her refusal to read the regulations. Determine to bring order and keep her job, she begins investigating her neighbors and the alarming number of crimes that seem to be taking place.
This is such a delightful surprise of a new series, filled with humor and no end of plot twists. Cambria definitely gets herself in over her head, but her motivations are pure. The father of her child returns and brings in more complications, especially when there’s an incompetent but handsome maintenance man around. The writing is strong, characters likable, and dialogue clever. The humor matches the ingenious plot twists, and readers should welcome this new series that mixes together laughter, romance, and mystery.
