Book Description

USA Today Bestseller

Maggie Thomas doesn't know the first thing about being a private eye. She quickly discovers that running her uncle's faltering Miami Beach P.I. agency is nothing like watching detective show reruns. Even the private eye app on her iPhone can't help.

But Maggie's first case is surprisingly easy...or so she thinks until she stumbles upon a dead body. With whizzing bullets, car chases, and spandex-clad bodybuilders, Maggie wonders if she's in over her head. Jake Jackson, the dangerously charming cop, thinks Maggie needs to stick to snapping pictures of cheating husbands and leave the detective work to the professionals.

The danger escalates when another homicide victim washes up on the shore and now someone wants to stop Maggie from solving the murders. With the help of her knitting needle–wielding, orthopedic shoe–wearing assistant Dorothy Raye, Maggie must solve the case before she's the next victim of this crime wave.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poorly Written Pulp 9 Nov. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a poorly written pulp novel. The main characters are reasonably well drawn, but not believable. The plot is chaotic and full of holes. Some scenes are nearly good, but have clearly not had enough time and polish spent on them to be really effective. I read this book as it was free; if I could have my time again, I would not choose to read it.

Maggie is a frustrating character, I would have preferred her to be less headstrong. Storyline was good and I am sure Maggie will become more likeable. Good holiday reading - now I need aholiday

It will not grip you to your chair but sometimes we just need something simple to keep our minds busy. I did like the characters so I guess i like the book because of that, having the young PI and the older assistant going together make it fun to read .

No real depth to the writing. The story gets confused and finally it's all relabelled in a paragraph as if the writer gets tired as well and wants it to finish
