Mail Carrier - as an Amateur Sleuth

Think about how much your mail carrier can learn about you... from your magazines, newsletters, the timing of greeting cards, and the return addresses on packages, bills and letters. 

My adventurous main character Roxy develops a romance with the town's handsome detective as she helps him solve murders by using her amazing photographic memory. She can recall the names/addresses on mail she delivers, vehicle plate numbers, etc. while observing people and activities in her small Florida town - where, it seems, many people are harboring secrets.
