Celeste lives with her daughter Paige after her divorce from Colin. They both work at a prestigious school, she a theater teacher and he a coach, although the fact Colin's girlfriend Naomi works there as well is not too great. When the principal Chad is found dead - by Celeste - life changes really fast. The very handsome detective Muldoon has his eye on Celeste as an Person of Interest and Celeste keeps getting in his way when she decides to do some sleuthing of her own. An exploding car, someone searching her house and taking shots at her complicate her life, and the tingles she feels whenever Muldoon is near confuse her.
I like Celeste as the heroine and Shaw Muldoon is the perfect stern but attentive hero. There is some great banter between them and attraction... There is also her best friend, Eli, and intelligent daughter Paige. And Muldoon has a big family we as yet know nothing about.
The perfect start of - I hope - at least some more books.
For those lovers of romantic mystery I highly recommend this one.

Person of Interest - is a cozy mystery story that has you guessing until the end. Celeste is one step away from being sucked up by quick sand. If you think your day is bad, just imagine hers. No matter how hard she tries to prove her innocence, something goes wrong and more fingers point to her. She is the talk of the town but not in a good way. People just love rumors
Celeste is a divorce mom, theater teacher and free spirited woman. She is sarcastic, witty, funny and a jumble of mess. Poor Girl... Her trouble starts when she finds a dead body and it doesn't slow down. In walks Detective Muldoon and his stick by the books procedure. While Muldoon conducts his own investigation, Celeste is doing her own with the help of her best friend Levi, which only seems to land her in hot water with the detective. The story has you going up and down like a roller coaster because as you think you know who did it, they have an alibi...
I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a cozy mystery. The character are well developed. The story keeps a reader drawn in to the every end.

Unfortunately for Celeste things go from bad to worse when she finds the principal dead in his office.
Celeste can't believe Chad is dead and even worse that the hunky detective thinks she is a person of interest.
This book offered plenty of plot twists and the characters were all likeable. The author wove a wonderful story filled with mystery, romance and intrigue.
I will be looking for more in this series.
I received an ARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my fair and honest review.
In case you didn’t know, this is author Emery Harper debut book and IMO I feel she did a stellar job. For starters, kudos on the blurb! I know authors HATE writing blurbs, but it was definitely a great one since she lured me, a non-mystery reader, into actually wanting to read it (Remember…no cover at the time). Second of all, the story itself. Once I started reading, frankly I couldn’t put it down. I giggled and snorted the whole way through. Told from first person POV, we get to experience Celeste’s witty, sometimes sarcastic, charm. Oh who am I kidding, she’s great, the perfect heroine who had a way of turning up at the wrong place at the right time. All those little trips to jail, stumbling across dead bodies, eventually becoming a pariah until the whodunit comes to light, as I said before, giggles and snorts the whole way.
Now what would be a good story without a good supporting cast! Let’s start with her bestie, Levi. Very best friend, very gay - very best gay friend. Thankfully, he’s not stereotyped into the gay best friend category. Paige, her too smart for words daughter. Again, not stereo-typical. The ex-husband Colin and the hussy, umm, I mean Naomi. Honestly, I had my suspicions about him and was expecting the whole story to play out differently because of those suspicions - to find out how wrong I was. I, of course, saved the best for last. Detective Shaw Muldoon. Honestly, I was a little surprised he was the romantic interest in the story. So straight-faced, so uptight, and then I switched over to thinking so sexy! He’s not one of those over-the-top macho cops. His strength is one of those that slowly grows on you, and then the next thing you know, you can’t live without him.
So there you have. Great read, lots of action and intrigue, and loads of laughs to keep it all moving at a fast pace. Not bad for a first book! Author Emery Harper is definitely an author to watch. I’ll be recommending her and Person of Interest to my book junkie friends.
I received this book from the JeepDiva for the express purposes of an honest review. The opinions and rating of this review are solely mine.
