FINDING MADONNA (Novel #1 of The Finder Series)

Madonna McCullagh - aka "Maddie" to everyone except for her overprotective Irish mother - can find anything, for a price. It says so right on her cheerful business cards.

Maddie ekes out a modest living recovering lost pets, jewelry, and other sentimental objects when they go missing. Whether racing against the clock to retrieve a wedding gown less than two hours before the big ceremony, helping the local police locate a smoking gun, or finding a misplaced giraffe, Maddie's idiosyncratic personality and unconventional methods always get the job done. She's had some bizarre cases before, but when a new client hires her to find one of the seven deadly sins, Maddie has to pull out all the stops to deliver the goods and avert a global catastrophe. Assisted by her hyperactive best friend Deedee and the no-nonsense Officer Geoff Roman - who seems oblivious to her advances - Maddie has to juggle a mischievous ferret, a wayward grandmother, and the biggest case of her life before time runs out.

FINDING MADONNA, the first book in the quirky Finder series, is a fast-paced, zany (and sometimes downright absurd) mystery. Maddie doesn't solve murders, but she can find anything - except for some reason, socks that go missing in the dryer.
