Hey, y'all my name is Emme Dickson. I'm the Southern half of Mayson-Dickson Investigations. I'm glad you invited me over.

What did you think when you met you Boston sister?

When I first met her? Honestly, I didn't think much of her. I mean, whew, she was all power suit and condescending attitude. After a while, though I discovered she was a pretty awesome lady, for a Yankee. Plus, we still don't know if we're really sisters or not. You see someone, we don't know who seems to have tampered with the DNA test we took.

Tampered with a test? Any idea of who that might be?

Honestly, no. I mean who would want to mess around with DNA test? That's alright, I can get another one.

The lawyer who summoned both of you was shot and killed and didn't answer all your questions. Do you have any idea what's really going on?

That poor, poor man. A sniper put one a bullet between his eyes. He managed to croak out a final word or two before he transpired, but neither Jackie nor I had a clue what he meant. The next thing we know this scary secret agent woman named Sydney was ushering us out the door.

The only thing we know is that our parents were afraid and tried to protect us. They split up, and they split us up to keep us safe. Our quest now is to find out who they really were and why someone might have killed them and is likely trying to find us.

Do you think your parents were spies?
We don't know, but we've made a good start on finding out. 

You stumbled on a dead body in your new location. Did that make you want to pack your bags and leave?

Ewww, that body smelled like a dead pig on a hot August day. I swear every time you mention it, I recall that smell. To answer you, no it didn't make me want to leave, it made me want to find out who killed him.

Did Jackie feel the same way?
She did, but she sure wouldn't admit it. It took a few margaritas to convince her.

Tell us about the two men that stumble into your lives at your new location?

Fender is the caretaker of the property we live in, and he is a cutie. The man is all beach wave hair, tanned body and he has a thing for Jackie.

Then there is Agent Chris Meechum. He is on special assignment for the FBI, and this is one hot agent, let me tell you.

Neither man wanted us to start our PI business, but we have a secret weapon, Zack. I just got the loud clearing throat signal from our author Jocie, so you'll have to read the book to find out about him.

Thanks for having me today. I hope y'all will head over to Amazon and pick yourself up a copy of Southern Charm, grab a sweet tea, and a comfy chair and enjoy.
