Temporarily Insane by Vicki Batman ♥ Book Tour & GIVEAWAY ♥ (Comedic Romantic Mystery)


No man. Bad job. And Murder. Hattie Cooks is still searching for her dream job and one might be available...in the Big Apple, far from friends, family, and Allan Wellborn, the man who still makes her heart race. In the meantime, she finds temporary employment at an accounting firm where two auditor friends turn up dead.

Detective Allan Wellborn dropped Hattie for Blonde Bimbo who, coincidentally, is employed at NLB where fishy things are taking place. When Allan interviews Hattie, he must determine why all signs point to her as a suspect.

Can Hattie discover why Allan dumped her and who is murdering auditors before death strikes again?


“So, you really have no intention of giving me my birthday present?”

“Not really. This one needs to be savored.”

Bouncey, bouncey. “Besides, your mom would kill me if I told.”

Uh-oh. My radar surfaced like a periscope on a Dclass nuclear submarine armed with twenty deadly missiles. This would not do. No siree. Sometimes, Mom’s surprises were incredibly unique. Translated, this meant on occasion her presents were:

—Butt ugly
—Not needed
—Childish

I didn’t want to sound completely ungrateful about Mom’s gifts. In truth, I very much appreciated everything she gave me. I really struggled with keeping the unusual presents and then donating them to a charity when they weren’t used. Most had been stashed on the top shelf of my closet in case she visited and made inquiries about them.

  4. Good morning, and thank you so much for having me as we welcome Fall!

    Hi, Lisa! So glad to see you today. Big plans?

    Hi clojo9372! Oh my. In my first book, I worked with two people who were...different. So some of their characteristics appear in them. Hattie's sister has wild hair like my sister. And my son won't read my book because he thinks Allan Wellborn is Handsome, my husband. Uh, no.

    Hi, Marcy! So glad you enjoyed the excerpt. I had so much fun writing over the top Mom. I hope you have a wonderful day!

  6. I was thinking of Hattie in "Temporarily Employed," and she would make a good sitcom character.

  16. If you could be any leading character from a bestselling book, who would you be and why?

  17. The book sounds like a fun story to read! I haven't read the first book though, would it spoil the enjoyment for me? Would I miss something important, I wonder.

  19. Hi, Richard! and good morning, too. I love your mom's saying.

    Hi, Mai T! Oh my that is a tough question. I think I would like to be Kinsey Milhone from Sue Grafton's books. I like her style, her humor, her deduction abilities.

    Hi, Dee! No, I don't think you'll miss too much by reading the second one first. I read Janet E's #4 first and then went back and caught up. Try it!

    Hi, Nikolina! I'm so glad you are enjoying the tour and I hope to see more of you in the future. Hugs.

    1. Hi, Eva! and thank you for the compliment. Having a cartoon cover is always tricky. There's no bare chested guy, no damsel in distress. LOL
