I didn't expect to like this as much as I did. I can't even put my finger on what it was that made the book stand out so much. I just really enjoyed the chemistry between the investigating team, the understated comedy and the overall cosy feeling of it. There is good humour, warmth and a good plot, moved along by interesting characters.
A series I will be watching.

This was a fun cozy mystery. Amber is the least likely sleuth but she tries hard. She works part-time in a pub and newspaper but when a good friend, Ennis, asks her to follow the agent assigned to his brother's death, she can't say no. Ennis is worried that the death had something to do with him because he's now a famous movie star.

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.

What’s the best thing to do when waiting for a loved one to have an operation? Get yourself lost in a good read. That’s exactly what Zanna Mackenzie’s ‘And The Earth Moved’ provided me. Joining hapless, yet feisty, Amber, and the hunky CCIA agent with a soft centre, Charlie, on a murder mystery trail was a far more absorbing place to be than the hospital waiting room. The story follows Amber, part-time barmaid and horoscope writer for the local rag, as she becomes embroiled in the search for the suspected murderer of her celebrity ex-boyfriend’s brother. You simply know she’s also going to get her emotions embroiled with Charlie from the get-go and yet the romance element is perfectly paced, delivering the perfect dollop of satisfaction. No spoilers, but I liked that the author left the reader suspecting there might be one or two future ups and downs in the relationship, which will take it nicely into the next in the series. What I particularly liked was that Charlie was believable as a CCIA (Celebrity Criminal Investigation Agency) agent. His attitude, competent, crisp, yet caring and protective, was just right. His methodology was believable. Obviously some research has gone into the detail. I also liked the setting. You could almost smell the beer being pulled in the traditional pub and the diesel and dust of the quarry. The attitude of the men working the quarry, the dumper bearing down on Amber and Charlie after a less than friendly reception … Well, if you want to escape in a book, And The Earth Moved is a good choice.

WARNING ADDICTIVE NEW SERIES, APPROACH ONLY IF YOU ARE WILLING TO READ INTO THE EARLY HOURS OF THE MORNING!!!
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!

Amber Reed's life isn't that exciting. During the day she works as a horoscope writer for a local paper and in the evenings she's a bar maid in a pub. However, Amber's life is suddenly shaken up when she is contacted by her ex-boyfriend Ennis McKarthy, who is now a famous actor, after his brother Joel has been found dead. Amber immediately goes to Ennis to see what has happened: was it an accident, suicide, or perhaps murder? Amber quickly meets Charlie Huxton, an agent for the CCIA (Celebrity Crimes Investigation Agency) who has been hired by Ennis to get to the bottom of things. Yet, Ennis doesn't trust Charlie 100%, so he asks Amber to keep track of things and follow Charlie. At first, Amber isn't so sure, but as the plot thickens and as she gets to know Charlie, she simply no longer can't seem to stay away until the case has been solved.

'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.
