A series I will be watching.
It was funny when the agent, Charlie, wouldn't let Amber go with him while he investigated the death but she followed him anyway. Of course, he spotted her right away. Poor Charlie knew it would be easier to keep track of Amber if she was with him so he let her tag along.
I liked the way Charlie tracked down all possible suspects. It was interesting to find out how the death came about. The attraction between Charlie and Amber was nice, too. They tried to stay professional and keep their hands off each other, but it was hard.
I am sooo happy to be reviewing Zanna Mackenzie's new series, the first book in the series is And The Earth Moved, which introduces you to the wonderful and slightly crazy Amber Reed a barmaid and horoscope writer for her local paper her life is a bit dull but when she gets a phone call of her ex boyfriend who just so happens to be a mega movie star things turn out to be anything but boring.
Ennis was her uni boyfriend and they split on good terms (rare, I know) so when he tells her his brother is dead, and the police will be investigating it as suspicious he calls in the CCIA, the Celebrity Criminal Investigation Agency. To investigate his brother's death, Introducing Charlie, the cocksure agent who has come to investigate, but Ennis isn't quite happy with this man investigating alone, so he asks Amber to assist him, shadow him, to make sure Charlie is trustworthy this is where chaos ensues.
The book is super fun, entertaining and full of adventure, I love the whole feel of the book, this crazy upsy daisy adventure but they are still investigating a murder where dangerous people and threats nip at their ankles.
The chemistry between Charlie and Amber is electric, the attraction is obvious for us the reader, but god the build up was torture, but in a good way, I just wanted Charlie to grab Amber and kiss her, but where would be the fun it that. I loved how Mackenzie showed us rather than told us what the characters were feeling, that my friends is a sign of good writing, the entire book was a pleasure to read, you are propelled each page, you find yourself endlessly swiping the page just to find out what? Who? And when? And most certainly will they?
A fabulous fresh new series with one hell of an opening novel! Amber Reed I can't wait for more!
'And the Earth Moved' is the first part of the Amber Reed CCIA series and definitely a promising start. Zanna Mackenzie's writing style flows at a good pace and is really easy to get into. I quickly warmed to the main protagonist, Amber, and leading man Charlie has a bit of a James Bond feel to him which I think numerous female readers will definitely enjoy! Both characters are well-drawn and I loved seeing the relationship between them develop as the story progressed. It was easy to connect to all of the different characters, whether it's liking them or disliking them (or doubting them; it's a mystery after all!).
I personally really enjoyed the mix of genres, since the novel has both romantic comedy and mystery/detective elements. I really enjoyed the focus on the characters and the relationships between them, but I was also intrigued by the murder and discovering who had done it and what exactly had happened.Read more ›

This is a lightweight romantic thriller. I found Amber a bit annoying, especially her internal dialogue debating the pros and cons of any action. Read morePublished 21 months ago by Sarah Hague
