Gusty winds...and a trail of destruction. <br /><br />Graduate student Raina Sun is in for a season of mayhem and murder. When she volunteered to take the new foreign exchange student shopping on the last weekend before Christmas, she ended up in a riot for the last hot toy of the season and an abandoned baby. Sometimes it doesn't pay to be a Good Samaritan.<br /><br />But calling the mysterious phone number in the diaper bag leads to more questions than answers. A strange man claims to be the child's father, and his alleged mother turns up dead.  The local police are more interested in keeping the town's good name out of international news than considering if there's foul play. And to make matters worse, she has less than a week to find his birth parents before the FBI takes over the case.<br /><br />Raina summons her sleuthing skills to protect this baby and soon discovers everyone has a few skeletons in their closets. With her pimp-cane-toting grandma, she must track down a hidden killer before she becomes the next victim. There's no place for an amateur when it comes to murder...<br /> <br />Don't miss out on Raina's new adventure--get your copy of "Gusty Lovers and Cadavers" today!
