A Hopeless Game : The Hopeless Tigers just won the biggest football game in school history!
But as often happens in the quirky yet snakebitten town of Hopeless, Idaho… there’s a bit of a problem.
A dead body has shown up. That’s right. Another one.
As usual, Investigative reporter Hope Walker is on the scene.
But this time, the mystery is particularly thorny.
Hope has to sort through various motives and suspects in her most confusing mystery yet.
Plus, she has to figure out where she stands with the handsome sheriff in town.
Especially now that a new suitor has thrown his hat into the ring.
Will this be the crime to finally stump Hope?
And will Hope ever figure out what she really wants out of life?
“And then my hero finally took a good look at me too. And I took a good look at him. It turned out that, in addition to being large and well-muscled, he was also quite good-looking. Which made it all the more embarrassing when he laughed, winked, and said, “Nice underwear.”
But then he did a kind thing. He took off his fireman’s jacket and draped it over my shoulders so that it wrapped around me and covered me up.
“Thanks,” I said.
“All in a day’s work. Listen, I’ve got to go put out this fire, but I’m thinking the two of us should go on a date tonight.”
That was unexpected. And inappropriate. And decidedly… flattering. If my cheeks weren’t already red from embarrassment, they would be reddening now.
“You’re asking me out on a date in the middle of a fire?”
“I don’t kid around about dates.”
“But… I don’t even know your name.”
“Fireman Bob.” He winked. “And Lucky Charms is my favorite cereal, which makes you a pretty cool chick in my book. Pick you up around six. Try to be done with your taxes by then.”
And without waiting for an answer, he charged back toward the fire.”
