Rose Pressey is one of my favorite indie authors. Normally she tends to write paranormal books however she went a slightly different direction with this book. This book is a good old fashion mystery. I love paranormal books but I love to switch off to other styles. 

As always Rose wrote a great read. Her lead character Maggie is fun and is someone you can relate to. Jake Jackson is a charming and devilishly handsome male lead character.Not to be forgotten is Maggie's senior assistant Dorthy who I think maybe able to give Betty White a run for her money. Dorthy is also always armed with her knitting needles and peppermints. 

Maggie took over her Uncles P.I business after he passes away. She is happy to take on the challenge because she needs a change in her life. She is also thrilled to get a new client on her first day. A case that should be an easy one just prove his wife is having an affair. Which when she takes the proof to her client she discovers him dead. His cheating spouse is arrested; so she hires Maggie to help prove her innocence. Maggie shouldn't have taken this case between dead bodies, getting shot at and all kinds of other danger she may lose her life before she is able to start her life over. 

This is an excellent read; I would recommend this to any book lover.If you haven't read any of Rose's books before I defiantly think you are missing out by not reading her stories. She has such a way that really brings her characters to life.
