I heartily give this 5 stars and I'm looking forward to the next in what I hope will be a long line of stories about Sam. I hope it will not be limited to the next 11 months and then that's all we hear about Samantha Rialto.
An outstanding first novel, entertaining and complex, it just does not get any better than that.
Evan Katy created a loveable and funny heroine who is surrounded by a cast people who could be your best friends. Sam finds herself in the middle of a mystery she wants nothing to do with but can't get away from because the Killer seems to be attacking everyone she knows or cares about. Ben Parker, Sam's ex husbands partner, cares for Sam but never asked the right questions when her ex-husband drunkenly killed another cop. They are now are forced together and he is asking the right questions causing Sam to tell him the truth about what happened to her marriage. Ben finds himself drawn to Sam hoping to keep her safe and hopefully a possible romance.
Sam has an inner monolog that seems to be vocalized causing the reader to laugh out loud and enjoy the funny places Sam finds herself.
There is a romance triangle but it’s more fun to read causing for some good laughs. Ben needs to wire Sam to figure out who might have murdered the man in the alley, but when someone tries to kill Sam, coming out of nowhere, she is reminded of Batman. The more Sam wants Ben out of her life the more he finds ways of being there.
Maxie, Sam's best friend, is every girl’s best friend and someone you want by you side though thick and thin. She is a strong person who keep Sam sane when she feels she is losing her mind and will protect Sam at all cost. Maxie is brilliant but also very feisty and wants nothing more than to kick someone butt to prove she is scary.
As I finished the book I was excited to find there were two more and I quickly bought them and enjoyed reading them from beginning and end and can't wait to see what happens next to Sam, Maxie, Ben and the rest of the cast who you can't help but fall in love with.
This book is a laugh out loud fun read with dark moments that are lighten with humor. The reader will find themselves reading this book over and over again. The reader will never guess who the murderer(s) are until the end of the book and even than she keeps you guessing until the last page. I couldn't put this book down even if I wanted to because it drew me in from the first chapter with the attack of the moth to the very end.
Quick pacing, intrigue, humor, and plot surprises combine to create a novel I could not put down. The sexy chemistry between the leading character, Samantha, and her leading man, Ben, is electric. I can't wait to see the relationship develop in the next installment. The supporting cast are extremely interesting and dynamic in their own right.
Samantha is an intelligent woman dealing with many everyday issues as well as some personal tragedies all too common to too many women. She works through these issues in realistic and truly human ways. Throw in the chaos and danger of her side job as a photographer for private eye work and her life becomes an out of control rollercoaster. One you can't help but jump on yourself.
