Read a #SmallTownRomance #Mystery Temporarily Out of Luck by Vicki Batman @VickiBatman #CozyMystery #RLFblogTemporarily Out of Luck by Vicki Batman is the third volume in the Hattie Cooks Mystery series. Enjoy a small town romance mixed with mystery and Vicki's signature dollop of humor.

Great job. What man? And murder. Newly employed at Wedding Wonderland, Hattie Cooks is learning the industry from a woman she greatly admires. When her former brother-in-law is found dead in his luxury SUV, all fingers point to Hattie's sister who is planning her own I Dos.

Detective Allan Wellborn is caught between a rock and a hard place--Hattie's family and investigating the murder of a well-connected Sommerville resident, the same loser who was once married to Hattie's sister. Determining who's the bad guy--or gal--isn't going to be easy and sure to piss off someone.

Can Hattie beat the clock to find out who murdered Tracey's ex before she is charged with the crime and her wedding is ruined?

What's in your character's pockets, backpack, or purse?

Hattie carries in her handbags a little makeup pouch her mother needlepointed, her cellphone, keys, and TicTacs, wintergreen flavor.

Does your character carry money, and if so, in what form (cash, credit, etc.)?

Hattie is a single gal and out of work. She is also a pro-shopper--someone who shops for the best value. All kinds of currency work for her-- cash, checks, cards—everything because you never know when you will find a good deal or have to have it.

What does your character carry related to a job or calling?

For job interviews, Hattie takes a tote that contains paper copies of her resume, a bottle of water, and an e-reader.

What is one thing your character wouldn't be caught dead carrying?

Something dead—obviously.

Does your character ever carry things for other people? (like a mom with toys, etc.)

Hattie has been known to pack cheese crackers in case she gets hungry. She might share. Her mother would say that's a nice thing to do.

If your character could buy an item to carry things in and money was no object, what would it be?

If money was no object, Hattie (like someone she knows) would buy designer handbags, and because she is a pro-shopper, she will always try to buy one at the best value. She is particularly fond of Kate Spade and vintage handbags like Margaret Smith and Enid Collins.

Questions for the Character to Answer About the Author

What does your author always carry?

Handbags!!! Vicki likes needlepoint handbags and has made some of her own besides buying vintage ones on various websites. She also loves Kate Spade.

How organized is your author's backpack/purse?

Vicki is pretty organized. She changes bags frequently and everything moves easily from one bag to the next.

What does your author prefer to use when it comes to items like backpacks/purses?

Vicki loves handbags. Her feet are small, and shoes are hard to come by; however, handbags—lots of those. She has a vintage Boy Scout backpack that is very cool. And an LL Bean tote that goes to conventions and trips.

If your author could buy an item to carry things in and money was no object, what would it be?

Vicki is always looking for new handbags. Even if money was no object, she is a pro shopper like me, and she will be looking for a good value no matter what she bought. But sometimes, you gotta go with the price because it is what you want.
