Billy Cabot is indecisive about her career, her love life, and her family, but she is sure she witnessed a murder. In Raspberry Crush (Billy’s favorite cocktail), Jill Winters creates a light hearted tale about a young-ish woman who is forced to reinvent her life after she is “downsized” from her “Phi Beta Kappa college graduate” worthy position in the corporate world.

The story unfolds with Billy Cabot working in a small bakery as a cake decorator after losing her job as a Graphics Designer. Her motley co-workers, comfortable yet passionless boyfriend, and tension-free lifestyle have lulled her into stagnation. That is until her ex-boyfriend comes back to town. Suddenly, Billy is thrown head first into a sexual whirlwind that compels her to reevaluate her boyfriend and her choices in life. And just when she thinks she has a handle on things, a man dies in a suspicious manner at the Dessert Jubilee Billy and Bella Donna Bakery catered.

Jill Winters creates an upbeat and highly erotic story that keeps the reader engrossed and titillated. Aside from a couple grammatical errors in the printing, this book is fun to read, especially with a friend! Pour a cocktail and join Jill Winters in a Raspberry Crush.
