From inside the book:
Eden waved a fry in front of Raina's face. “I need a sidekick. Your practical side and my instinct could blow this story wide open. The promotion would be mine if I get an exclusive on this.”
“I'm nobody's sidekick.”
“Well, someone has to be the sidekick. I can't be the sidekick. Look at me.” Eden flipped her hair over her shoulders and straightened in her chair. “You're physically smaller. The sidekicks are always peanuts.”
“That's because they are usually younger, Obi Wan.”
“Never mind. I don't want to be involved.”
“But you're already involved. The bitter break-up, the fake pregnancy, the money, and the text messages.” Eden ticked the points off on her fingers. “They always suspect the ex-lover. It's only a matter of time before you become a suspect.”
A piece of lettuce stuck to Raina's throat. She gulped some coffee, but her voice still came out in a squeak. “That's crazy talk. No one would be interested in me.”
Eden raised an eyebrow. “Do I need to go through the list again?”
Raina slumped in her chair. How did she get herself into this mess? She was a good person; she loaned money to friends. And now she was a murder suspect.
