Contemporary Romance, Romantic Suspense/Mystery

Claire Layton expects the usual busy Saturday night at Harvest Bistro to be killer on her stilletto shod feet. She never imagines there'd be an actual murderer on the loose at her restaurant in rural Dry Creek, Nebraska. But when she discovers a customer dead in a dumpster, the killer demands she find the victim's phone and flash drive or face fatal consequenses.

Jake Warrick, a cocky and mind-numbingly hot private investigator, becomes Claire's unlikely ally in the search. Jake just wants to solve the case and get out of this hick town, but the diminutive and curvaceous Claire turns his plan upside down as they uncover a more complex crime than they ever imagined. The two bicker and banter like Tracy and Hepburn caught in a whirlwind of intense sexual attraction as they try to find the killer before it's too late.

Wow! Has Avery Flynn got the skills to create a mind-blowing novel! I absolutely loved this novel from start to finish. She created perfect characters for her plot line, and their personalities blended incredibly well for her story. She instantly grabbed me and hooked me, taking me on a whirlwind, suspenseful ride.

Claire Layton is a woman who loves her babyŚher restaurant. But what happens when she finds an arm sticking up in her dumpster, when she's left to do the dirty job of taking out the garbage? Enter the absolutely awesome murderous twists and a killer on the loose. I loved this aspect of the story. If it can hook me instantly like that, and then keeping me guessing at the who-dun-it's, then I am absolutely in heaven with a novel.

Now, a good mysterious novel like this is not complete with a little romance! So we need some spice to heat it up. That's where the absolutely gorgeous hunk of a Private Investigator enters. Jake Warrick. Oh la la and purr! DEFINITELY a PI I want to work with any day!

When the twists start turning to Claire Layton to hand over the evidence and her life becomes endangered, well, Jake just can't stop helping her. He needs to solve this case and solve the issue of his heart.

This story is awesome, if I haven't said it enough. The ending of this story will drop your jaw, leaving you absolutely DYING to know what's next in this fantastic new romantic suspense series. Between a killer, learning to trust again, and steamy passionate sparks, well, this is a novel that is NOT to be missed! DEFINITELY, HIGHLY recommended!
