Mitch believes that Tess is the most beautiful woman he has ever seen, but whenever he steps out of his police role he trips over himself trying to just say the right thing. Tess has been in one bad relationship that she is still paying for and though attracted to the detective has doubts about men in general. As the two sleuths continue to dig, Mitch and Tess fall in love, but he knows he must go slow and let her control the relationship even drive his car until she realizes he plans to be with her forever. However, first a killer must be caught and he knows the must keep his stubborn Tess safe as she has stepped right into the middle of the mess.

NO ACCIDENT is an exciting police procedural romance starring a delightful lead couple and a matchmaking partner. The story line grips the audience from the opening scene when someone shoots David while he muses over being bored with his latest girlfriend. The plot picks up two types of tension as Mitch and Sal investigate at Rayex and Mitch meets Tess. Sub-genre readers will take immense delight with this fine tale that insures the investigation and the love subplots mesh nicely into a fine novel.
