I was thrilled to see that the author was continuing this series. It’s been a couple of years and I was a little concerned jumping back in that I might not be able to catch up, but the author does such a nice job that it could be read on its own. However, I happily went back into Jamie’s world and her mind that works at super speed. All the characters I enjoyed in previous books are there with their own drama going on.
One thing I enjoy about this story is that Jamie’s life moves forward. She is not stuck in a time or a situation outside of the mystery. She has grown as a person and as a professional. Some how the author is able to make all the crazy scenes with Jamie’s life believable! And then there is Duke, a reoccurring character that just makes me smile whenever I see his name – he is about to have his own exploit!
Reluctant family law attorney Jamie Quinn is loving life–and why wouldn’t she? Her boyfriend Kip is back from Australia, her long-lost dad finally has his visa and she’s about to start her dream job at an art foundation. But it all falls apart when Jamie is accused of stealing priceless art from a rare book collection. If she can’t find out who framed her, she can kiss her dream job good-bye–and her law license too. Meanwhile, Kip has problems of his own. Now an environmental activist, he uncovers a deadly secret–one that just might get him killed. Jamie’s in trouble, Kip’s in danger, and Duke Broussard has gone AWOL. How could Jamie’s favorite P.I. abandon her at a time like this?
