"I absolutely had to read THE NEXT RIGHT THING in one sitting...THE NEXT RIGHT THING is definitely an exciting page turner you don't want to miss!" ~Kay Quintin, Fresh Fiction
From the Author
In The Next Right Thing, I created a female protagonist, Cammie Copello, who is near to my heart because we both work as private investigators. I well understand what it is like to have your heart in your throat as you're crawling underneath a vehicle to attach a GPS device in broad daylight, or how convenient it is to use smartphone apps for certain tasks, such as capturing "the bad guy's" activities using a motion-detector video app.
The hero, Marc Hamilton, is a Denver high-profile lawyer who Cammie once worked for...that is, until she waded into the gray area one time too many. But now his career depends on her helping him out, and Cammie must decide what is the next right thing to do. A decision all the more difficult because she has been secretly in love with Marc for years.
Hope you enjoy The Next Right Thing, which is available in print and ebook. Its sequel, SLEEPLESS IN LAS VEGAS, features Cammie Copello's best friend, Val LeRoy, as the female private eye in Sin City. Look for SLEEPLESS IN LAS VEGAS in December 2013!

I don't want to spoil all the good stuff, so enough of the details, just read the book! This book was fun and exciting, a great suspense and romance all in one book! The author really ties the suspense thriller and romance together in a great way! It's a very well written book, lots of detail and really good characters. It's defiantly a five star read, and I highly recommend it!
The story reads like a romance: boy meets girl; boy jilts girl; boy and girl are replete with misunderstandings and regret; boy and girl fall in love. But beyond the romance, there's also the legal thriller aspect with a few white-knuckle cliff-hangers where you'll end up reading for a bit longer than you might have intended! The two components align to create a perfect summer read.
Her character development, story line, writing in general quite good.
Kudoes to the author, and thanks for a very enjoyable read on my kindle.
Vegas PI Stories Book One
Cammie Copello loves her private investigation work. And so what if she goes into the gray areas now and then? She gets the job done. Unfortunately her black and white ex-boss didn’t care for her tactics. Or maybe it was because she found dirt on his fiance in that gray area.
Marc Hamilton needs Cammie to find his ex-fiance. She is the best private investigator he knows and she holds the key to the future of his career. And his dad’s freedom. With his daughter in tow, he heads from Denver to Vegas to hire Cammie. She may look easy in those fishnet stockings and corset, but she puts up quite a fight.
Sometimes the best thing is right under your nose and you miss it. Marc hadn’t noticed Cammie before. And even now that he has, his black and white ways just won’t allow him to mesh with her gray. Loved this story and the realistic aspects the author’s real-life PI work adds to it. The next two books are just as good: Sleepless in Las Vegas and Hearts in Vegas.
After an entertaining start we discover that Cammie the PI isn't legally allowed to do what amounts to a wiretap; she loses her licence and has to pay a fine. A lawyer named Marc is hoping Cammie will track down his ex girlfriend who stole from his firm and clients. Cammie would rather not talk to him as they have unresolved issues. But Marc persuades Cammie to work for his law firm; his engagingly serious young daughter Emily keeps issuing commands to make their lives greener and fairer. Marc has a second dilemma as Gwen, his ex, was thought to be pregnant - it may be his child.
The story slows down and addresses various drawn-out family matters and only halfway through the book does Cammie take up the case of the elusive Gwen. She searches on line for nicknames, cars and sports Gwen liked. Later she and Marc realise that hidden feelings have come to light, but somewhat strangely they kiss in a beach cabin and proceed to discuss a Chagall painting. Cammie is later arrested for disorderly conduct and may lose her licence permanently. So when a dubious moneymaking proposition is put to her, she's in the mood to listen.
This adult tale needs to decide whether it is a family romance or a PI story. When it concentrates on one or the other it is enjoyable but too much family discussion goes on for long stretches and doesn't contribute to either plot. The PI work tends to be more gadgets and less Sue Grafton, but maybe that's how the work is done nowadays. I felt that given her background, the author should focus on the crime aspect in her next outing.
Suspense and right ingredients of the romance pushes this well written novel to the top of my list of the titles at the moment. Highly recommended.
