Nikki Hunt thought her night couldn't get worse when her no-good, cheating ex ditched her at dinner, sticking her with the bill. Then she found his body stuffed in the trunk of her car and lost her two-hundred-dollar meal all over his three-thousand-dollar suit. Now not only is Nikki nearly broke, she's a murder suspect

My Opinion:
This was a fun read!
I was expecting it to be heavy on the romance, which it was pretty steamy, but it was heavy on the mystery. I loved that this story had me wondering at every page turn, who did it and why, not so much as to whether people would hook up.
I am glad they hooked up though. These characters were made for each other. I mean both sets.
A definite recommendation to mystery-romance lovers from me!


5/5


Recommend? DEFINITELY!



HE'S THE MAN OF HER DREAMS . . . In a world full of frogs, Alison Carter is determined to find her prince. Maybe her dating past is more Titanic than Love Boat, but she's seen enough happy marriages to know that true love is possible. No matter what, she won't give up on happily-ever-after. If she can't find Mr. Right, she'll simply hire someone who can.

My Opinion:
I really liked the story, but have to admit, the predictability factor in this one is 100%. I knew right from the moment Brandon got onto the page what would happen, though with that said, it was still nice to see the tale unfold.
Really good contemporary romance!


4/5


Recommend? Yes, for an afternoon delight.

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.
