A murdered mistress. An accused mob boss. Can two detectives put their differences aside to find the real killer?
Angelina Bonaparte is starting from square one. After a messy divorce, the middle-aged librarian put down her books and picked up a new gig as a private investigator. When a mob boss heads to jail for his mistress' murder, she has no issue with the womanizing scumbag rotting in prison. But when the suspect's pregnant wife swears his innocence, Angelina can't find it in her heart to refuse the case.
Already reluctant to get involved, her frustration grows when she's forced to work alongside Ted Wukowski, a homicide detective who thinks a crime scene is no place for a woman. In the search for clues along the mistress’ long record of broken hearts and promises, Angelina’s natural charm is the perfect complement to her temporary partner's take-no-prisoners interrogation style. And before long, she and Ted can feel their grudging respect transform into an undeniable attraction.
To solve the case and catch the murderer, the PI and the cop must learn to trust each other completely before an innocent man goes to jail for a crime he didn't commit…

Loved the book, the characters, the storyline, and the fast paced theme.45
Great read. Loved the characters. Can’t wait to read more of your books. And tell my friends to read them too.55
My wife said, “You might like this book.” So I humored her and began reading. Excellent characters and development. The story unfolds at a nice pace. Easy to tell the author was a woman by the details of clothing. Yet, I was drawn to the character, her sense of humor and quest for justice. I will certainly read the next book in the series. Yep, my wife was on target.15
Caught in a blizzard in Texas this book kept me entangled and entertained! I could not put it down from the time I woke up to the time I went to bed. It’s a fast read I read it in roughly two days in between every thing else I had to do. Simply put I loved it !55
What a great book. It holds on to but not negatively. It was a good paced story where it took time for me to figure out who did “it”. It kept me intrigued and in love with the main character. I too have escaped from a long (30) year relationship which drained my soul. So the strength of the Amazon main character, held me intrigued. Thank you Sandra Singer55
