Sweet pickles, this is a great book!
on May 9, 2012
Mo is a private investigator but mostly she just poses as the 'honey pot' for husbands suspected of cheating. One day she gets an assignment to break into a car and gets stuck in a most vulnerable position. (this is the first scene of the book and it was really funny - I read it twice) The owner of the car, Ross Grant, (a actor from a popular movie who's been out of work for a while) finds her and they somehow get tangled up in a blackmail plot involving the Russian mafia, a stripper, a Ross Grant impersonator, and an insane ex-girlfriend who doesn't accept the breakup. Oh and there is a book convention, complete with furries! All the while they have a sleazy journalist following them just close enough to show their 'shitake' to the world but not close enough to be of any help.
This book was a lot of fun. The main character's strive to keep a g rated mouth kept me giggling. The plot was well planned out and I couldn't guess the end. There was a real mystery here and no one just handed them the answers. Action packed from start to finish, the author managed to fit in plenty of funny and even a believable romance. I didn't know there was a 'humorous romantic suspense' book category out there, but now I am sure I have read the best of it. I would love to see these characters again and if I can't, if this is it for Mo and Ross, then I will settle for anything else this author has written. I can't imagine I won't love them all.
