Genre: Cozy Mystery / Chick Lit
The bookkeeper at Jared’s company has been murdered and if that wasn’t bad enough someone is trying to sabotage the company by leaking company documents to other firms who are then upstaging their presentations. Jared asks for her help to find out who is trying to take Sleeping Bear Designs down and while Presley is always willing to help a friend, she is also hoping it will take her mind off obsessing over Cooper.
Presley and Cooper are on a break or are they broken up? It was never really clarified and she just found out he’s in town and he hasn’t called. Is he avoiding her? What does that mean?
Are they done for good?
This is my first read in this series, and I enjoyed it. I’m a huge chick lit / cozy mystery fan, so I already suspected I’d love this one, but you can’t be sure until you try it, of course. Because I hadn’t read the others in the series, I had some trouble figuring out the roles of the different characters at first, but after a few chapters, I was caught up. The book skillfully combines romance, mystery and suspense.
I loved Presley. She has an intriguing personality. The other characters were good too, but Presley stood out. She’s charming, in her own way, and intelligent, and brave too.
An interesting cozy mystery, with a lot of suspense. If you like the genre, then you’ll love this one.
