It was funny enough to picture Alex putting on a disguise to go clean toilets in the place she'd been wrongly fired from to retrieve a small recorder she'd planted in a vase, but the scene after she went to the dentist almost had me on the floor. Yes, there was murder involved which was no laughing matter, but I love the style of the story and I loved the humor injected by the author. The characters were awesome too. I had to admire Alex for starters. I would have been scared to pieces in her shoes. Her brother was a hoot, and I loved the banter between them. He was so sweet with his little dog. His girlfriend Gabby was probably not quite above the law, but she and Baba definitely came in handy during an epic two-part showdown. I liked the new neighbor Ian who is opening a B&B--I'm sure he and Alex will get together at some point. And sweet Trip, crazy Trip, who wouldn't want a bestie like him? Reliable, sometimes cynical but always a reporter with integrity. I'm anxious to read the next book, since there's a little teaser for it at the end of this one.
When the boss tries to “give” Alex to a client for a night, Alex chews him out in public and figures she is out of a job. When the boss turns up murdered, Alex becomes the number one suspect. People who were her work-friends turn against her and blame her as well.
If that wasn’t enough, members of Alex’s family descend upon her. It is a plot, obviously, to drive her completely insane. Though, not crazy enough to stop her from noticing the new good looking, Englishman who has purchased the neighborhood wreck across the street from her home.
Alex turns to her newspaper roots and looks for the real murderer. Along the way, we learn to love the crazy family as well as the crazy neighbors.
The story is fun and funny. The mystery is good as well. I had a lot of fun following the “red herrings” the author left in the story. I’m looking forward to reading the next book in the series and finding out where Alex sleuths next.
The CEO at Alex’s new agency turned up dead and all eyes landed on Alex as the one who had done the deed but when that also gets her fired from her job and broke Alex knows she needs to clear her name. The stories begin to fly on just who Alex was aiming the attention at her so she does a little undercover investigating to find the truth but that just may put her and her family in danger.
When picking up a book and it makes me chuckle on the opening page I know that I should be in for a good read. Starting this one off that was just what happened when I read the opening….
“I felt zero guilt for calling in sick Monday. “Sick of Work” would have been more accurate.”
Ok, now really who out there can’t relate to that one?? Pretty sure it would be a pretty low percentage that had not had that thought at least once in their lives so Alex immediately became somewhat relatable already. There were a few times I think the humor fell a little short of the mark to me but plenty of times that it had me laughing too. I do think there were a few slower moments along the way in the story, perhaps when the humor wasn’t drawing me in but overall this one was a fun start to this series that will bring me back for more.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
