In this book, one of Rose's best friends, Axton Graystone, asks her to watch his backpack. Shortly after this he goes missing. The police refuse to take it seriously, therefore Rose decides it's up to her to find him.
Rose has no detective experience, however she is willing to find people and ask them some tough questions. She also has some surprising connections she can make.
And as I am a huge fan of the romance variety, there are a couple of perspective individuals in this book. There is Dane Harker, an attorney that Rose went to elementary school with whom she hasn't seen since elementary school. There there is also this mystery man with gold eyes who seems rather shady.
This is an excellent book. I can't say that I have much experience with mystery novels, so I don't know how well this book falls into that category, but it's a fun adventure. Romance is definitely not the main focus in this book, but it's still there and it's good. My only issue with this is that sometimes I feel Rose gets ahead of herself and it lucky no one kills her.
I inhaled this book trying to figure out what was going to happen next.
So you take all of that stuff and add in the fact that this book is really well written, funny and fast paced, with plenty of emotion and humor, lots of twists and turns and the hint of a shockingly unlikely romance and...well...what more could you want? I loved this book and can't wait to read the next one.
This first book in Austin's debut series introduces Rose, a mixed-up twentysomething who thinks her life as a waitress/student is pretty dull. Then her closest friend goes missing and her world is flipped on end by shady characters and startling revelations about some of her hometown's most prominent citizens.
With a colorful supporting cast that includes Rose's spunky, sassy boss (who says you can't have adventures after 70?), and plenty of men vying for our heroine's attention, this book definitely has something for everyone. Rose is smart and independent, and the contrast between her and her sister, who took the road her parents pointed her toward and lives a very comfortable life, adds a nice layer of family drama to the story.
Austin deftly sets Rose up as a "real" character who has refreshingly appropriate reactions to the crazy situation she's thrown into. I really liked that Rose didn't behave as though she knew she was the heroine in a thriller, but rather as most ordinary people would if they were thrust into such an extraordinary situation.
Witty dialogue and snappy writing keep the narrative moving right along, and I loved the fact that even when I thought I had it all figured out, there was one more surprise waiting that I really didn't see coming.
Bravo, Ms. Austin! I can't wait to see what kind of trouble Rose gets into next -- or which guy she chooses.
