Freezer Burn Blues

Becoming a hit man was not part of twenty-four-year-old Milo Purdie’s plan for the future. But when a stranger calling himself, Julio, offers Milo ten thousand dollars to eliminate gold-digger, Lilah Furfir, the Florida native quits his job and accepts the cash. Meanwhile, private caregiver, Sonny Delaney just wants to find her soul mate and become a certified yoga instructor. But with a full-time gig caring for elderly multimillionaire, Conrad Furfir, Sonny has little time for her heart’s pursuits. That is until Furfir heads into the light. When Sonny discovers her patient has expired, she knows Conrad’s worries may be at an end, but hers are just beginning. Not even twenty-four hours earlier, Furfir announced that Sonny and her coworkers were to be included in his will. Now Sonny and her offbeat crew of caregivers must find a way to preserve the body until the will becomes official or forfeit the inheritance. If freezing their deceased employer isn’t stressful enough, the condition of the body suggests foul play may have led to Conrad’s demise. The two most likely suspects include Conrad’s daughter, Lilah, the product of one of his numerous sexual encounters and Julius, Con’s closeted gay nephew. Julius, alias Julio, however, has taken extreme measures to ensure that he will not have to share the family fortune with his faux Furfir cousin. Unfortunately, his unpredictable hit man comes up with a new agenda, one which does not include eliminating the competition.
