Audrey Scott is more upset for her jilted cousin than for the best man who supposedly disappeared and caused the cancellation of the wedding. That is, until the cops come around looking for him on suspicion of murder. When that very same best man, Foster McGuire, ends up bleeding in Audrey’s closet, she has no choice but to try and get him off the hook for a crime he didn’t commit.
Too bad there’s too many people, from an irritating homicide detective who’s way too attractive for Audrey’s own good, right to mob bosses, who don’t want to see Foster McGuire tell his story. Audrey is no detective. In fact, she’s a children’s librarian. However, there’s always room for some good old investigation work between story times, and she’s going to use the skills she knows to follow a trail that starts with murder and ends with betrayal, with a whole lot of guns in between.
For starters, I love that cover.
I was so excited to see that this author has a new book out.
Audrey Scott is a quirky main character. I loved her humor and her seriousness. She’s trying to do what is right but she manages to get the attention of some very unsavory characters, and everything escalates from there.
And Derek? Well, what can I say? Not enough. I’m definitely looking forward to book two and more of Audrey and Derek together (and more kissing!).
If you like mysteries with a dash of romance and quirky characters this book is for you. Do yourself a favor and don’t miss it!
