The Case of the Bygone Brother, An Alex O’Hara Novel, by Diane Burton
14 October 2015 - Published on Amazon.com
Alex O’Hara has bought her father’s Private Investigation agency and is determined to make a success out of it. Until Nick Palzetti, the son of her father’s long-time retired business partner shows up. She thinks he’s after her agency and she’s not giving it up, because she’s worked so hard to earn it. But she agrees to employ him because he seems to have lost his job. However, she won’t let him handle any of her important cases and assigns him grunt work. But work is becoming complicated. Her life is threatened and her clients are misleading her. And somehow, all of her cases seem to be related. But she doesn’t believe in coincidences. Alex is a lot like Lucy Ricardo, getting herself into jam after jam. “She had trouble written all over her.” She’s fearless and takes a lot of chances but she’s not willing to take a chance on Nick, who she’s had a crush on since she was a teenager. But she’s still vulnerable to him and he is always there to catch her when she falls, literally. She doesn’t want to be rescued and she’s suspicious of his motives. Why has he returned to Fair Haven, Michigan? For her? To spy on her? Or to make a claim on his share of the agency? But there’s more to Nick than meets the eye. He’s keeping secrets from Alex. There’s plenty of action and sexual tension that kept me turning the pages. I loved this book and these characters. I’m glad this will be a series. I can’t wait until O’Hara and Palzetti are back together again.
Funny and surprising

In this cozy mystery, I thought I had the mystery solved and then another twist appeared. Alex O’Hara is out to prove to her father that she can handle the detective agency he and his best friend passed down to her. What she might need to add to her arsenal of logical and methodical detecting is a bit of caution. Alex gets herself into all sorts of mischief by plowing into the fray, ignoring the warnings of Nick Palzetti, son of her dad’s best friend and the man she’d panted after so many years earlier. Both main characters were appealing and three-dimensional, and the small town setting was an integral part of the plot. I look forward to other stories set here.
Perfect blend of fun and romance
28 June 2015 - Published on Amazon.com
This was my first Diane Burton book -- mostly because I don't read science fiction, even romantic SciFi -- but now I'm rethinking the whole genre thing. I really enjoyed this book and had to fight with myself to put it down a few times when I HAD to go do something else. Loved the humor in her voice, and I loved the characters, the premise, and the budding romance. I'll definitely buy the next in the series when it's out. For now, I'm heading back to Amazon to check out the rest of her stories.
Maybe Everything Isn't What It Seems

A quick and enjoyable mystery/romance read. The main character is a woman detective who is just learning the ropes from her retired father and uncle detectives. You have to admire her spunk and of course being reunited with her high school flame to help her solve a case makes for a romantic link as well. I'm looking forward to more stories as future cases unfold.
The plot changed direction several times and the author did a good job of making the transition

I found the book an interesting read. The plot changed direction several times and the author did a good job of making the transition.
