As the summer temperature rises in Southern California, so does the anticipation of which path Tiffany will take. Follow Tiffany on her hilarious and surprising adventure.
A hot, funny brother's best friend small town rom com... with sugar on top!
She's his best friend's little sister. He's known her all his life. He's practically part of the family. There is nothing either of them could do to surprise the other at this point. Then she showed up in his bedroom in lingerie and asked him to take her V-card.
Okay, that was a surprise.
Aiden is pretty sure Zoe was equally surprised when he told her no.
To say that he didn't handle it well would be a massive understatement. Almost as massive as the amount of work he's going to have to do now to convince her that he wants her. Forever.
Right after he tells her that he's bought the company that's her bakery's biggest competitor.
Maybe if he tells her he's in love with her first, that will help sugarcoat the whole we're-rivals-in-business-now thing.
So, first "I'm in love with you", then "take off your clothes", then "I'm now your business adversary".
Sure. Piece of cake.
Oh no, the undertaker is back, and he's more obnoxious than ever!
When an old man dies in an assisted living center, the undertaker is the first to show up, hoping to get the business. "Easy money!" he declares, but his hopes for an easy funeral are dashed when a psychic insists the old man was murdered.
He starts out doing the right thing- he informs the sheriff's department of the psychic's suspicion that the death might have been a murder. They laugh him out of the office, leaving the poor undertaker to try to solve it himself.
Lucky for him, he has help. There's a retired police chief with a penchant for rap music, a barely competent local doctor, and the undertaker's voluptuous, chain smoking girlfriend. It's a rogue's gallery of characters, and with the help of the local detectives, maybe they'll solve the case together.
Join the ridiculous, hysterical adventure in this latest installment of the Undertaker Series!
