Entrepreneur Lucie Rizzo is determined to grow her small dog walking/upscale pet accessory business to Fortune 500 status. But leaving behind her Mafia Princess title isn't as easy as she'd like.

When Lucie lands a dog-walking gig for one of Chicago's media-obsessed top chefs, she knows his high-profile status might shine the limelight on her business as well. At least until the chef's secret and equally famous casserole recipe winds up in the wrong hands and Lucie is accused of swiping it.

With her ties to the mob casting a shadow over her reputation, Lucie assembles her whacky crew of amateur sleuths and her sexy detective boyfriend to go on a hunt for the real thief. Can Lucie solve this culinary mystery before the cops slap the cuffs on her?

In her usual funny and quirky style, Adrienne Giordano brings us the next book in the Lucie Rizzo Mystery series.  It’s fun, it’s sweet and it’s an all around good time! If you love a little romance, a lot of mystery and a quirky cast of characters that will keep you smiling, this is the series for you!

Lucie Rizzo just doesn’t seem to be able to stay out of trouble. If you’ve read this series, you know the antics she and her pals and family have been up to in the past, and the fun continues with this book. Lucie is going strong with her relationship with Detective O’Hottie as her BFF Ro christened him. Chicago Detective Tim O’Brien doesn’t like the trouble Lucie seems to draw, but he still cant’ resist her or stay mad for long!

Lucie is excited to have a dog walking job with one of Chicago’s renowned chefs, but as usual trouble follows her home! When his prized, top-secret casserole recipe disappears just after Lucie was in his office, heads are going to roll!  Lucie hates that her family’s mob reputation taints her no matter how much she tries to show that she’s above it, so when she hears she’s being accused of stealing, she’s fit to be tied! As her loyal gang of family, friends and good-hearted mobsters rally around her, she sets out to find out who the true culprit is!

About Crossing the Line:


Title: Crossing the Line
Author: Kimberly Kincaid
Series: Cross Creek #2
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 8, 2017
Publisher: Montlake Romance

Cocky farmer Eli Cross plays twice as hard as he works. When his latest stunt drums up a heap of negative PR for the family farm, he grudgingly agrees to play host to an ambitious New York City photographer. Her feature on Cross Creek could be just the ticket to show the country what the Cross brothers do best…which is more problem than solution for Eli.

Scarlett Edwards-Stewart has photographed everything from end zones to war zones. She’s confident she can ace this one little story to help her best friend’s failing magazine. At least, she would be if her super-sexy host wasn’t so tight lipped. But the more Scarlett works with Eli, the more she discovers that he’s not who he seems. Can his secret bring them closer together? Or will it be the very thing that tears them apart?

First Look:

An excerpt from CROSSING THE LINE

Copyright © Kimberly Kincaid 2017


Just as she finished her last piece of toast, a knock sounded off on the door to Scarlett’s apartment. Her heart did the samba in her chest, but she pressed a hand over the front of her dark-green tank top to cover the commotion. Eli had said he wanted to stick to business. She could totally do that. They’d be professional. Polite. Work only.

But the perfectly professional, perfectly polite greeting Scarlett had worked up in her head completely disintegrated at the sight of Eli standing on her doorstep with a charming-as-hell smile on his face and a brown paper bag in his hand.

“Morning.” He extended the bag, looking hotter than anyone had a right to. Seriously, who made a hoodie and a pair of banged-up jeans sexy? At five o’clock in the morning? It just wasn’t right.

“What’s this?” she blurted as she took the bag from his outstretched hand, and God, could she be any more graceless?

If Eli was bothered by her distinct lack of a filter, though, he sure didn’t show it. “This is a vegan breakfast burrito.” He paused, tipping his blond head slightly as he added, “And we can add that to the list of things I never thought I’d say.”

Scarlett blinked, trying to piece the words together in a way that made sense. “You bought me a vegan breakfast burrito?”

“No. I made you a vegan breakfast burrito.”

The shock pumping through her veins must’ve taken a detour over her face, because Eli took one look at her and backpedaled. “Okay, sort of. I went up to the main house an hour ago to get a bunch of crates that didn’t fit in the box truck, and Owen was making breakfast burritos. I helped him come up with one for you that fits the bill.”


Scarlett clamped down on her lip just a second too late to bite down on the overly bold question, but to her surprise, Eli just laughed.

“What, is breakfast some sort of sacrilege once you cross the Mason-Dixon Line or something?”

Seriously, she needed to build some sort of immunity to that here-comes-trouble smile of his. Either that or she was going to have to head back to that cute little town where she’d gotten her coffeepot for some cute little batteries to fuel her cute little vibrator.

“No! Nope, mmm-mmm,” she barked, chasing the burn from her cheeks with a sweep of her fingertips. Sure, Eli was good-looking (Fine. He was sex on a stick. Potato-potahto). But they needed to stay professional. That’s what he’d said he wanted.

Only from the look of the cocky, come-and-get-it smile on his face right now, Scarlett wasn’t so sure he’d meant a single word.
