“It looks like someone vomited the nineties in here. Is that man
smoking?” Polliannah exclaimed as they were entering the club. “Or a regular
Eastern European club,” she added.
“I thought you might like it,” John teased back. She gently knocked his
“I love it.” She looked a little out of the place. She was wearing jeans
and not a flashy dress and dangerously high heels. Sémya would have been proud.
Sémya would have loved it here. Maybe she should ask her to come with Josh? She
caressed John’s grin. “I love you.”
“I love you more,” he said back.
Wow! “Just tell me that
you’re not one of those men who just stared at women dancing in the shadows.
Creeps!” She moved her head and hips to the music.
“I would have let you know that I’m an excellent dancer… after a few
drinks,” he joked back leading her to dance floor. “So two bottles of wine and
a couple of vodka shots…”
She just laughed, happy to be out with him. He wasn’t lying, he was good.
He seemed more relaxed tonight that he had been for the past four weeks. The DJ
was going Daft Punk crazy. Sémya
would have really loved it here. They used to be Daft Punk diehard fans. Daft Punk and absinth… the nineties!
 She looked at him completely
letting loose when One More Time
started. “It’s been a very long day!” he said over the music.
“I am not judging! I’ve had a very long year,” Polliannah said and asked
for a cigarette. She lit it and laughed when Roses by Outkast came on. “Not that I don’t enjoy the music but the
DJ knows it’s 2013?” Always the same shit with Eastern European style club. But
they usually have the best absinth… “I’m thirsty,” she whispered in his ear
while she was dancing against him.
“What do you want to drink Princess?” he groaned back.
Polliannah played with his soft blond hair before diving into his deep
blue eyes, “Absinth please, straight up,” she said against his lips. She saw
the admiration in his eyes, “I have my vices too.”
He kissed her and pressed her tighter against him, “I see…,” he mumbled
taking a drag from her cigarette.  California Love started, “…after this
“Oh you were on these white lads!” she said rolling her eyes. He eagerly
nodded as he sung. She just laughed and kept on dancing. Can this night be more perfect?

Who killed the infamous Johanna Cartier? Sémya
Slotin is thrown back in the business of solving mysteries when she found her
body. With the help of her best friend Polliannah Koch, DCI Ally Gibbons and
the mysterious but extremely sexy Josh Heinz, she vows to see this through.
This was supposed to be an easy case… 
Sémya Slotin had spent the last three years living in London with her
best friend Polliannah Koch staying away from solving cases. After Hawaii, she
was taking a break from puzzles, cases and mysteries that could potentially get
her killed. Instead, she had been doing her second and third favorite things,
drinking and selling expensive vintage wines and having earth-shattering sex
with the mysterious, sexy, beautiful but ever so secretive Josh Heinz. Life in
London was good….until her funds ran out. Too much wine drinking, not enough
wine selling!
 When fashion designer and adoptive mother, Annika Slotin, summoned
her back to Paris to hire her for what Sémya considered being the easiest case
of her amateur sleuth career, all she could think of and see was money signs
and a well-deserved Cuban holiday once it was solved. 
What Sémya didn’t see was her stumbling on the fresh corpse of
supermodel Johanna Cartier. She didn’t think that male model turned fashion
designer Julian Marais-Caldwin, who also happened to be Sémya’s ex, would be
suspected of brutally murdering her. Johanna was his girlfriend, his muse and
he loved her. Sémya didn’t see the dead bodies piling up or the conspiracy
Sémya was a little rusty. But then again, it was supposed to be an easy
case and she was going to solve it. One vintage wine at a time… Sémya Slotin
was officially back in business!
