Book Description

"If you like Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum I think you will really like Amber Fox - I know I do." ~ Martha's Bookshelf

Armed with cool sarcasm and uncontrollable hair, feisty insurance investigator Amber Fox is back in a new mystery combining murder and mayhem with romance and laughter...

Three deaths. A safety deposit box robbery. The boxing heavyweight champion of the world. Somehow, they're all related, and it's up to Amber to solve a four year old crime to find out why. Only she stumbles across a trail of dead bodies and a web of lies spanning both sides of the social divide, this case starts to get personal. Someone thinks Amber's poking her nose in where it's not wanted, sparking off a deadly game of fox and mouse--only this time, Amber's the mouse. Out of options, Amber is forced to take refuge in the home of her ex-fiancé, Brad Beckett, and now it's not just the case that's heating up!

All Levi Carter wanted to be was the boxing heavyweight champion of the world, but at what cost? All Carl Thomas wanted was to be rich, but would his greed be his downfall?
All Brad Beckett wants is to get Amber back, but there's a reason for the ex word. And all Amber wants is to get out of this investigation alive...

(Formerly published under the title: Be Careful What You Wish For)

4.0 out of 5 stars A fantastically funny suspense! May 10, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Be Careful What You Wish For is the second Amber Fox book, after The Fashion Police. I haven't read the first Amber Fox book, nor any of Hodge's other books, but I will definately be reading them now. All the necessary elements for a good suspense novel were in this book: murders, mystery, greed, evil, and no small amount of action and unexpected twists and turns. But if a suspense novel can be lighthearted and funny, this one was, with lots of romance and quirky humor throughout the story. Amber Fox was hilarious with her tough as nails outer persona and her hysterical one-liners that were frequently laugh out loud funny. She was a perfect lead character for the story. Her romantic struggles between two seemingly gorgeous men managed to be both heartwrenching at some points, and hysterical at others. And while the emphasis was definately on the suspenseful and the romantic/funny elements of the story, there were some serious moments that kept Amber's character from being "campy" and I really liked that.

I liked the fact that I was able to envision everything the author described as if I were there, without there being so much detail that I was left feeling bogged down. There was a scene involving spiders (and I will say no more) and the imagery there was enough to make me squirm as I read! I had perfect images of all of the bad guys in the story, except, in my head, they were speaking more like The Godfather rather than Brit bad guys! My Romeo was Jordi Vilasuso (Griffin Castillo in All My Children) and Brad was Channing Tatum as he was in Dear John. I have a vivid imagination! I definately recommend picking this book up!! 4.5 mugs!

Amber Fox, ex-cop, now works for her once-fiancé, Brad as an insurance investigator. Brad asks her to check out what begins as a `something doesn't feel right moment' he has while watching a pay-per-view boxing match. The insured is the current title holder, Levi, who is fighting his old friend Ricky. When someone comes up to the ring yelling at Levi during the sixth round of the match, Levi is knocked out and Amber is thrown into a whirl-wind investigation that ends up being deeper than she ever thought. With the help of Brad and the members of their investigations team, Amber begins to find answers.
What started as a world-title boxing scandal quickly turns into a bank safety box robbery and murder. Who was the mysterious man and what was he yelling to Levi? Is Levi being blackmailed and if so, by whom and for what reason? The answers don't come easy as the questions keep piling up and Amber finds herself in a deadly situation.
This is the second book in the Amber Fox series. Sibel Hodge has a way of writing that really makes the characters come to life as Amber struggles to get to the bottom of the case and her love life. What really made this story different was the fact that it is written as Amber is telling the story personally to you. She is sarcastic, quirky, funny and sexy all wrapped into one bundle of energy. This was an easy read and kept me interested throughout.
I give Be Careful What You Wish For, 5 spiders and recommend to fans who enjoy a fast paced, sometimes funny, crime filled story. I look forward to reading The Fashion Police, the first Amber Fox book and hope Ms. Hodge keeps this series coming because she has a new fan!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic read! July 1, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
What a fun read!! What really made this story different was the fact that it is written as Amber is telling the story personally to you. Not to mention she is sarcastic, quirky, funny, sexy all wrapped into one bundle of energy. Amber Fox, ex-cop, now works for her ex-fiance Brad as an insurance investigator. Brad calls her to investigate what starts out as a "something doesn't feel right moment" that he has while watching a pay-per-view boxing match between the current world champ title holder, Levi (who has recently taken out an insurance policy with brad's company), and Levi's old friend Ricky. When someone comes up to the ring yelling at Levi during the sixth round of the match and Levi is knocked out, Amber is thrown into a whirl-wind investigation that ends up being deeper than she ever thought. With the help of Brad and the other members of their investigations team Amber starts finding answers. What started as a world-title boxing scandal, quickly turns into a bank safety box robbery and murder. Who was the mysterious man and what was he yelling to Levi is her first question, but the answers don't come easy as the questions keep piling up As more players come into the mix the pace picks up as the owners of a bank, a bank owners wife, an author, an ex-con, an ex-girlfriend, and an accident four years ago play a role in the who-dunnit. Is Levi being blackmailed? And if so by who and for what reason? As things start coming together, the pace quickens as Amber finds herself in a deadly situation. Read more ›
