I WAS A WOMAN WITH A PARTICULAR SET OF SKILLS. SKILLS THAT
could get a man killed without anyone knowing it had happened. Or the
kind that could help me disappear entirely or fix problems that local law
enforcement were too afraid to touch.
With such a vast skill set, it often amazed me that I managed to wind up
in situations where those abilities were of zero use.
For instance, standing in the Gossip Party Store, picking out a costume
for Halloween, surrounded by spooky plastic skeletons and paper bats. The
party store had decided to go all out this year, and there were costumes of
every variety. Kids shrieked and ran through the aisles, and one of them
bumped past me.
“Hey, watch it, kid,” I said.
The child turned and bore a pair of plastic vampire fangs with a hiss.
“Charming,” I said. “You make fantastic demon spawn. Just watch
where you’re going, would you?”
“You’re that lady,” the kid said, removing the vampire fangs with gusto
and flicking spit everywhere. “The lady who helped Auntie Caroline get her
“That’s right,” I said, flashing a smile. “Always happy to help an auntie
“Are you an occifer?” she asked, blinking big blue eyes up at me. Kids
and questions. The two enemies of successful spy work. That and the
“Nope,” I said. “I’m just a… helper.”
“Borrrinnnggg!” The kid left me with her poignant assessment before
sticking the teeth back into her mouth and racing off.
“Remind me why you had two of those things?” I directed that at
Lauren, who had a third child on the way but was in the early stages of her
“Oooh.” Lauren Harris, the chef at the Gossip Inn, held up a set of
bunny ears and a pair of lace tights, ignoring my question. “What about
this? You could be a bunny rabbit.”
“I would rather cook and eat a brace of rabbits than wear that.”
“I would never do that. That’s the point,” I said, lifting the lacy material
and rubbing it between my fingertips. “You’re kidding me with this, right?
“That’s what pretty young women like you wear to Halloween parties,”
Lauren said, twirling a finger through her red pigtail. “And you know
Detective Goode might attend.”
I glared at her. Lauren and I had become fast friends after the years I’d
spent working as an assistant in my grandmother’s inn, and that meant she
knew everything about me. Including the fact that I’d had one failed date
with the town detective, and we hadn’t talked since. The man was
insufferable. He was handsome, intelligent, and he didn’t put up with my
tendency to interfere. Dangerous territory.
“I am not going as a bunny rabbit.”
“What about a vampire?” Lauren asked. “It will suit you. You can look
pretty and terrible at the same time.”
“So, pretty terrible.” I walked with her down the aisle, dodging past a
plastic jack-o’-lantern basket. “What are you going as?”
