Review by Kim
This is the first in a new series (I hope!) about Franki Amato. She was a rookie cop in Austin, Texas, until she finds her boyfriend cheating on her with a German female wrestler. She decides to make a clean break and join her friend, Veronica, in New Orleans, where she becomes a private detective. She gets put on a case to help a man accused of his girlfriend’s murder clear his name. To say he is not a pleasant man is putting it mildly. Along the way, she tries to avoid her meddling grandmother’s horrible matchmaking attempts and escape a curse put on her by the local voodoo priestess, all the while trying to get a date with the handsome bank manager.
This was a really fun, laugh out loud book. It was also a great mystery, as it had me guessing the whole time and I had a hard time cracking the mystery. I loved the fun setting and the fast pace of the story. If you enjoy the Stephanie Plum books by Janet Evanovich, this would be right up your alley! I highly recommend it, and I am really hoping this will be a continued series. I will anxiously await the next book in this fun new series!
My Rating: 4/5
