Eve Appel settles in Florida to escape her manipulative cheating husband and opens a secondhand store with a friend. Things get dicey when a customer is stabbed while shopping. The victim somewhat resembles Eve–was Eve the real target? That doesn’t matter, because she’s a suspect. There’s a history between her and the victim…lots more than the cops know. Eve is determined to find the killer and clear her name. With the help of her friends, family, a hunky PI, her cheating ex-husband who really needs a divorce, and mobsters from up North secrets are about to be told.
This book gets a shout out for setting. Who doesn’t like reading about Florida–even rainy, chilly Florida–from frigid Chicagoland? Gators, palm trees, and boats sound perfect to me!
Plus there are cars blowing up. Accident-prone best friends. Sexy private detectives to tempt the heroine. A sassy grandma. Dead bodies piling up.
I’m glad this is the first book in a new series. I can’t wait to see what kind of mess, I mean adventures!, Eve gets into next.
