Julie Ann Lindsey brings back the entire Connors clan for this fantastic mystery.
I can’t tell you how long I have been waiting to read this book. Mia Connors is as headstrong as ever and even busier with work than most people could manage. But no matter how much is on her plate she always makes time for her family. But that doesn’t leave her much time for romance. I love Mia’s tenacity and her geeky chic. Her quirky characteristics just make her so endearing and it is a pleasure to witness her interactions with her family, friends and neighbors. Mia has definitely gotten under my skin and I can’t seem to get enough of her penchant for getting mixed up in murder investigations. And of course the Archer brothers are there as well making everything even better just by their presence.
Deputy US Marshal Jake Archer is himself quite busy. Mia and Jake are navigating a rocky relationship. His protectiveness and his frustration are so genuine that I believe I could practically feel along with him.
I enjoyed that I got to see a little more of Mia’s mother in this tale as well as a completely different side to her sister. The fact that Mia’s close-knit entourage share this book makes for a huge part of my love of this story. I adore how well the author twined humor and suspense keeping me guessing and giggling. I can only hope that Mia will have more adventures for me to enjoy.
Mia Connors just can’t seem to help herself as she once again finds herself in the center of a murder investigation. When a friend of her grandmother’s is discovered murdered in Horseshoe Falls, Deputy US Marshal Jake Archer is put on the case. But that doesn’t mean Mia will stay out of it. So can she find a killer while finding time for all her work and her social life?
Mia Connors finally has this #adulting thing under control. She's set to launch a massive project at work, her social calendar is filling up and, if you can believe it, she might finally get the guy. But when one of her grandparents' close friends is discovered floating in the lake—D-E-A-D—all she's after is justice. And there's only one person who can make that happen.
Deputy US Marshal Jake Archer is working undercover when he gets the call about a murder in Horseshoe Falls. The vic may have been close with Mia's family, but it doesn't take long for Jake to discover that he had far more enemies than friends.
Horseshoe Falls is abuzz with news of the murder, and Mia's determined to get to the bottom of things, despite Jake's direct order to stand back. Jake didn't open his heart to the possibility of a future with someone just to let her get herself killed. Now they have to contain the panic within Horseshoe Falls, apprehend the fugitive and figure out how to salvage their relationship—before Mia finds herself in the crosshairs.
