Anna Snow introduces readers to a fabulous trio in this cozy mystery debut. Barb Jackson and her two friends are three of the savviest crime fighters I've come across. The tight knit relationship these ladies have added to the fun and friendly feeling of this story. Barb is a heroine who is easy to relate to and while some might consider her naive for taking on a case to prove her cheating ex isn't a killer. I don't want to give anything away but the incident with her jeans would have made this story worth reading for that scene alone. Truly I'm still giggling days after finishing the book and I picture the incident in my head at work and it sets me off all over again. I enjoyed the chemistry between the pretty PI and the sexy detective as I'm a fan of a little romance with my mysteries. I love when stories have fantastic relationships and this one has wonderful characters who just bring me into the story. I like that the mystery was quirky, definitely not what I was expecting. I'm looking forward to seeing just what Barb and her staff can get up to next. If you like your mysteries to leave you smiling then I recommend you read this one.
Barb Jackson usually spends her days since becoming a private investigator chasing cheating spouses. But when the chance to test her skills to clear her ex and catch the real murderer presents itself Barb jumps right in. Before she knows it she's dodging attempts on her own life but maybe even more distracting is dealing with the attractive homicide detective who's also on the case.
"Expect the unexpected" has been Barb Jackson’s motto ever since the day she became a private investigator. But when a blast from the past in the form of her cheating ex-boyfriend shows up in her office and begs her to help him clear his name in an ongoing murder investigation, she fears this time she might have bitten off more than she can chew. But as Barb reluctantly takes the case, she uncovers deadly secrets and it becomes obvious someone is now out to get her.
Suddenly Barb finds herself in a race against the clock to clear her ex's name and keep herself alive. And to make matters worse, hunky homicide detective Tyler Black is nipping at her heels—in more ways than one! If anyone can get to the bottom of this mystery it’s Barb...if she can keep herself alive.
