"A story worthy of any prime-time sitcom"
Life, and hunky cop Cole Fischer, are passing Haley Yates
by. The daughter of an Ohio police chief, Haley is the only
one in her family not to have a successful career in law
enforcement. An eye injury she received while in training
in the police academy changed all that.
Her only option: work as an administrative secretary in the
Fort Lauderdale, FL police department. Where, of course,
hunky cop Cole Fischer works but has yet to notice mousey,
bespectacled, shapeless, cookie-baking, prim and proper
Miss Haley Yates.
The annual policeman's Halloween party presents Haley with
the first opportunity to become her alter-ego: Catwoman,
from 'Batman' comics' fame. Slinkily clad, she snares
Cole's interest but refuses to unmask or reveal her
identity. When shortly after leaving the party, she hears
an 'officer in distress' call on the police radio in her
car, she races to the scene-- still in costume-- and using
her police academy skills, saves Cole's life. Then promptly-
- and wisely-- disappears.
So starts the dual life of Haley Yates, mild mannered
secretary by day, super hero by night. And in Cole
Fischer's mind, super seductress.
Emboldened by Cole's interest in Catwoman-Haley, Secretary-
Haley begins to act less reserved towards him. A mutual
attraction blossoms ... but wait! Which woman does Cole
In answering that question, author Elaine Hopper takes the
reader on a fast, funny, giggle-filled ride replete with
misdirection and comic set-ups that are worthy of any prime-
time sitcom. PURRFECT JUSTICE is the purrfect beach read,
or waiting for the kids at soccer practice read: short,
pithy, funny and fluffy, a definite 'feel good' book.
Paranormal romance fans may find an appeal in the 'super
hero come to life' fantasy aspect of the novel, as Haley
moves in and out-- and even comes to be jealous of!-- her
This much I will guarantee if you read Hopper's PURRFECT
JUSTICE: you will never, ever be able to look at cookie
dough without thinking of the love scene where Haley
sensually spreads cookie dough all over Cole's... well,
just read the book.
