Book One in a new series featuring Jordan Welsh and Eddie Marino.
Jean Steffens also lives in Scottsdale with her family. She’s a mother, reader, movie fan, and the Steffens’ family chauffeur. She’s also active in church activities. Like Jordan Welsh, PI, Jean grew up in Chicago near Lake Forest. Jean’s mother, however, was nurturing—baking cookies, carpooling kids to school, kissing boo-boos—unlike Jordan’s mother, who’s allergic to the kitchen and thinks a carpool is a hot tub in a limo. Jean’s published work includes “The Night Before Christmas” in the Desert Sleuths Sisters in Crime Anthology, How Not to Survive the Holidays.
What a great book! I don't get the pleasure of reading many PI novels that are actually interesting! Jean and Sally created the ultimate PI/romance book. I was guessing until the very end about the culprit. I loved watching as the characters evolved - Jordan and Eddie's romance/friendship/work relationship; Jordan's relationship with her family (specifically her mother); and the dynamics between Jordan and several other side characters.
The only down fall to this book is that it was a teeny bit predictable for some things. However, this didn't take away from the overall mystery, which made me very happy! This is a great, light-hearted read. I highly recommend it for those readers who like PI, mystery and light romance!
