No Such Thing as Smooth Sailing(2016)
(A book in the Brandy Alexander Mystery series)
A Novella by Shelly Fredman
It's Christmas Eve, and native Philadelphian, world-class friend, and champion of the underdog Brandy Alexander has just been asked by her boyfriend, sexy and street-wise Nick Santiago, to add "wife" to her impressive list of descriptors. But, from the outset, it's not exactly smooth sailing for the pair. Brandy loves Nick and wants to build a life with him. However, her issues with change, unresolved feelings for her former flame, police detective Bobby DiCarlo, and Nick's dangerous and mysterious line of work complicate their lives together. Meanwhile, Brandy and Nick aren't the only ones in choppy waters, as everyone in Brandy's colorful group of friends and family all seem to be in the process of breaking up, making up, or hooking up. Even with her own relationship to sort out, Brandy dives into helping her friends with their romantic woes, including making sure her uncle Frankie and his fiance Carla find Carla's missing cousin "Benny the Gun Runner," since their nuptials won't go forward until Benny is home safe and sound. Friendship, love, change, and a little bit of mystery are the driving forces in this funny, sentimental farewell novella which bids ahoy to Brandy and her friends.
