Cold Feet Fever follows Katerina (Katie) DeLuca and Sam Jackson, as they work together towards the grand opening of Atlantic City's newest nightclub, which was a former fetish club called Kinki. This is a fun ride that includes romance, toe curling 'sexy' scenes, a wacky grandfather who has a knack for getting himself into trouble, mob ties, murders, a dog with a sensitive stomach, and so much more. So. Much. More. To call Cold Feet Fever a page turner is a disservice. This is a page devourer (I Googled that one, and it is, apparently, a word). I couldn't read it fast enough. When I wasn't reading, I was thinking about the book and the characters and what happened next. Even when doing VERY important things that deserved 100% of my attention (apologies to my husband....).
Maureen Fisher did a phenomenal job of creating characters you couldn't help but love. Even the bumbling gangsters. On more than one occasion, I clapped my hand over my mouth to stifle the laughter at the antics of Rex the dog, such as when he had consumed countless spicy sausages, which effectively broke up a very poignant dramatic moment in the book, and in a way that a pet owner would appreciate. I didn't want this book to end. But when it did, I was still smiling. I'm thinking of it right now and am grinning. I highly recommend Cold Feet Fever as one of the most fun reads you will enjoy all year. This is part 2 of a series, so I'm on my way to get part 1 to see if there are any more for me to read.
About the Author

After spending eons in the IT world, she grew weary of wearing snappy power suits, squeezing into panty hose, and fighting rush hour traffic. She made a life-changing decision to write books. Not dry, boring, technical treatises, but fresh, funny romantic suspense novels.Besides writing, Maureen is a voracious reader and volunteer for an addiction family counseling program. She is also a bridge player, yoga practitioner, seeker of personal and spiritual growth, pickle ball enthusiast, and an infrequent but avid gourmet cook. She and her husband love to hike, bicycle, and travel. She has swum with sharks in the Galapagos, walked with Bushmen in the Serengeti, sampled lamb criadillas (don't ask!!!) in Iguazu Falls, snorkeled on the Great Barrier Reef, ridden an elephant in Thailand, watched the sun rise over Machu Picchu, and bounced from Johannesburg to Cape Town in a bus called 'Marula'.
