Book Description

Lily Carstairs has finally gotten her private investigator’s license and she’s already completed her first case, picking up a nice, fat fee for her troubles. Her second case, however, could be the case of a lifetime and could make her career. All she has to do is find a missing millionaire who disappeared…in broad daylight… in a brand new Lexus....from the side of the road in a small town where everyone knows everyone, but no one saw anything.

Other than sometimes wishing she had Ms. Marple on speed dial for help with the case, Lily feels things are going swimmingly. When she finds out childhood friend and ex-lover Smith Cameron has also been hired to solve the case, she doesn’t like it, but she soldiers on. And when Smith suggests that they partner on the case and resume their affair, she goes into both partnerships with her eyes wide open. Her goal is to collect the $10,000 bonus in the end and keep her heart intact.

As the millionaire’s trail leads them on a chase from their small town of Sheffield-Chatham to Chicago, and through the fancy rooms of secret men’s clubs to the hushed halls of museums and finally to some of the less seemly parts of town, they find themselves embroiled in a Machiavellian conspiracy involving rare gems, money and power, one that threatens to bring down some of their town’s leading citizens. When all is said and done, Lily has no doubt that Smith and she should continue their professional partnership. It’s the personal one she’s not so sure about.

More About the Author

I've loved reading almost my entire life, and as a kid would always imagine what I would have done differently to improve upon a book. My work has been called "character and issue driven; exciting, passionate and thought provoking." I write in several genres including romantic suspense, erotica, historical and paranormal and have enjoyed every bit of it. I call Chicago home, but love to travel. Most times you can find me with my laptop trying to improve upon genius -- *blush*

My latest book, "Dashing Through the Snow," is a romantic caper involving two private detectives, a missing millionaire and a rare diamond. It's also my first foray into self-publishing, a trip I found challenging, but rewarding.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dashing Through the Snow 13 Feb. 2012

Dashing Through the Snow by Lisa G Riley,
This is a wonderful story Smith Cameron & Lily Carstairs; they have known each other since Smith was two year old and he met this baby girl that everybody was so crazy about. Smith had been told at a young age that Lily was to protect Lily always and as they got older her kept his word. Smith & Lily spend one passion nights together and after that night he left without saying good bye.

Smith is back in town and Lily has finally gotten her private investigator's license and has just rec'd her first client. Now in this small town it seem like everybody is related to Lily and they are all very protected of her. Lily is the only girls in this family of male and they all spoil her include Smith.

Lily had grown to be a very confident woman who is funny, sweet, smart and loveable all at the same time. Smith soon realize that but he is the one person who understand why becoming a PI is so important in Lily and the one person who does not try to talk her out of becoming a PI. Smith and Lily end up working together to solve the case and boy is I fun to watch them.

To see them to give love a second chance is priceless not only do they still love each other and the feeling never went away. Of course Smith had some explaining to do and tell Lily why he left without saying good bye.

I am looking for the next installment of Smith & Lily I tell they are good together. You will not be disappointed. I recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars ANOTHER MUST READ!!!! 30 Jan. 2012
By Quin - Published on Amazon.com

Lisa G. Riley really knows how to weave a story together, that's for sure! I fell in love with both of these characters and found myself laughing out loud at the heroine Lily several times throughout this book. Dashing Through The Snow was funny, sweet, smart, and HOT! The two main characters have been apart of each other's lives since they were babies and it was fun to see how their relationship progressed and changed through flashbacks(which i don't usually like but in this case it totally worked because they were brief). This is a couple who had a connection outside of just the physical which was refreshing and sweet. KUDOS Ms Riley on another winner. GET THIS BOOK, YOU WILL NOT BE DISSAPOINTED!!

5.0 out of 5 stars What a great story! 26 Jan. 2012
By Alana - Published on Amazon.com

I am a big fan of this author and I have to say that if she keeps writing books like this, I will stay one for life! The characters are extremely likable and the story line is soooo good! I thought this would be another book like her first interracial stories and to an extent it is but the heroine in this story, Lily, is not just smart and feisty -- she has a sense of humor and a fun way about her that just instantly made me think " okay, I was just gonna glance at A few pages but let me just call work and tell them I will be late!" I read this in just a couple of hours -- it was that captivating!
I hope we get to see another book featuring this couple. Their camaraderie reminds me of the interplay between Tuppence and Tommy from the Agatha Christie series... And hey maybe we'll see a movie version of Miss Riley's books one day? Buy this story. You will LOVE it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excitement driven,on the edge of my seat reading! 4 Nov. 2014

From the excerpt of Lily chasing Santa Claus to the broken finger to the stun gun being used, Lisa Riley had me engaged every page. The lovemaking descriptions had me blushing a bit but I wanted to BE Lily. Lisa is a terrific writer and notably on rise. I have purchased a few more of her titles and look forward to reading them as well. Lisa Riley is a MUST READ author!

Review originally posted at Romancing the Book

Review: Dashing Through the Snow is part mystery, part romance, part HOT sex, and a whole lot of fun. Lily Carstairs has finally found her calling: private detective. With her first cheating-husband case under her belt, she is hired to find a woman's missing millionaire husband. But the client is so desperate to have her husband found that Lily is the second detective hired on the case. And who is that other detective? None other than Smith Cameron, the boy Lily grew up with, and the man who broke her heart by running all the way back to Texas after a steamy night of passionate sex.

Four years ago, Smith succumbed to the temptation of Lily's charm, and spent a night to remember in her arms and her bed. But guilt drove him away from her. He was, after all, the one charged to look after her, and protect her from guys like him! But now he's back in Illinois with his own private investigation business, and he's encroaching on Lily's turf (in more ways than one).

Hired to find an unassuming man who disappeared between his club and home, with no trace to be found, Lily and Smith have to call a truce and team up to solve the baffling case.

Lily is a thirty-year-old woman trying to find herself and her true calling among well-intentioned family members who still treat her like a child. Smith is the man who spent his life looking after the daughter of his mama's best friend. The family wants them married, but he's pretty skittish, and she doesn't want to settle down. Yet he can't stay away from the one woman he feels he should avoid.

I must admit there were a few grammatical errors (not bad, very minor), and an instance of thinking "can they really do it in that position?" But it wasn't enough to detract from the story itself. I was pulled into the story from the beginning, and I think the author has a good voice for storytelling.

This is a fun book with a good mystery and even better chemistry between Lily and Smith. I've not read any of this author's works yet, but I enjoyed this one. I hope there will be more from Lily and Smith soon!

Favorite Quote: Lily's cousin is talking to Smith:
"Anyway, she came gliding down that gorgeous staircase in some strapless black velvety thing and since you were standing right next to me, I heard you. You gulped like you had swallowed your tongue. And if that weren't pathetic enough, I heard you say something that made me feel shame as a man just because I was standing next to you." He broke up laughing when Smith groaned in embarrassment.
"Your voice sounded muffled, like the words were coming from the throat of a drowning man, but they were clear enough. I'll never forget it. You said, `Jesus, save me.' It was a plea like none I'd ever heard before, and I thought two things. One: if he touches her, I'd hate to do it, but I'd have to kill him and two: if he touches her, I'd hate to do it, but I'd have to kill him."
