From the Inside Flap
Eden waved a fry in front of Raina's face. "I need a sidekick. Your practical side and my instinct could blow this story wide open. The promotion would be mine if I get an exclusive on this."
"I'm nobody's sidekick."
"Well, someone has to be the sidekick. I can't be the sidekick. Look at me." Eden flipped her hair over her shoulders and straightened in her chair. "You're physically smaller. The sidekicks are always peanuts."
"That's because they are usually younger, Obi Wan."
"Never mind. I don't want to be involved."
"But you're already involved. The bitter break-up, the fake pregnancy, the money, and the text messages." Eden ticked the points off on her fingers. "They always suspect the ex-lover. It's only a matter of time before you become a suspect."
A piece of lettuce stuck to Raina's throat. She gulped some coffee, but her voice still came out in a squeak. "That's crazy talk. No one would be interested in me."
Eden raised an eyebrow. "Do I need to go through the list again?"
Raina slumped in her chair. How did she get herself into this mess? She was a good person; she loaned money to friends. And now she was a murder suspect.

F.) (Did I forget to say it) is REAL?!
Po po cracked me up! I can't figure out if she was an immigrant or if she is a second or third generation American-born Chinese woman. Either way, she was too cool.
I wanted to kick Matthew at times, but he grew on me. And Eden (great choice for the name btw) is a puzzle all by herself.
Despite the few typos and noticeable grammatical hiccups, I thought that Ms. Tan did an excellent job of drawing her audience (me 😁) in right from the start. The twists and turns delivered repeatedly so that I didn't have a moment to grow bored with this mystery.
I will read it again and again, and I can't wait to read more in this series. I hope at one point, she will explain what happened in Rome and in Las Vegas. Other than that, kudos!!!! I highly recommend this book.
BTW: In case anyone wonders. This review is completely unsolicited, in fact, I don't even know this author. FYI.
Disclosure: I learned it was on a deal and I offer my honest review.
I did receive this book free in exchange for an honest review. In exchange, I can get the next book free but I already purchased it. I really enjoyed the book but won't lie. It's a hearthearted mystery. Nothing deep or earth shattering here but lots of fun.
