Murder, Soccer, Stealing and Dating
Samantha Shaw runs the Heart Mates Dating Service. But more often than not, she is off doing amateur sleuthing. Luckily her boyfriend, Gabe Puluzzi, is a P.I. and often lets her doing her sleuthing under his license. Janie Tuggle comes to Sam asking her to help her get evidence that her ex-husband, Chad, has been stealing from the soccer league for years. Since he is the Coach that everyone loves since he¿s taken them to victory, she knows no one will believe her without solid proof. Sam got out of the soccer mom scene after her divorce, and she is very reluctant to set foot back there. But, once Janie tells Sam that Chad let the insurance for her kids run out, but he¿s still living high on the hog in their former home, Sam can¿t tell her no. Sam is a sucker for the underdog. When Sam meets with Chad, a very fun scene develops having to do with her clothing. You¿ll have to read it for yourself. Wouldn¿t want to give anything away! Then Chad is found murdered. Janie is a suspect, but so are many other people, including Sam herself. She gets into some sticky situations with Detective Vance. They go round and round more than once, and in more ways than one! And Gabe is not very amused with Detective Vance and his actions. I love this series. It is always a laugh out loud read. For the most part I¿d call it a cozy, but this book had one sex scene that in my opinion was beyond a cozy. Sam, Grandpa, Sam¿s boys, Gabe, Gabe¿s mom, and Det. Vance will keep you in stitches and definitely wanting more! I highly recommend this book and the whole series. It is fabulous! You won¿t want to put it down.Was this review helpful?

quirky charming romantic mystery
When her husband dies, Samantha Shaw learns that he was cheating on her and everyone in town knew it but her. She decides to change her image so the soccer mom gets breast implants, wears chic clothing, and opens up Heart Mates, a dating service for people desiring to meet their significant other. While she enjoys her business, she also likes working as a private investigator under her lover Gabe¿s license. Janie Tuggle, former wife of the soccer coach, asks Sam to investigate whether Chad embezzled funds from the soccer clubs of Lake Elsinore. Sam tricks Chad and soon downloads his financial records. She and Janie realize that $16,000 is missing. Shortly afterward, someone murders the coach. Janie asks Sam to learn who and why because any one of the suspects he was blackmailing could be the killer. Now Sam feels it is more critical to locate Chad¿s ominous files so no one else gets hurt. <P>NINJA SOCCER MOMS is a quirky charming romantic mystery with a plethora of suspects. When the heroine is not aggravating the lead police detective, she aggravates her sleuthing boss with her efforts to prove her independence and that she is his equal in everything. Yet the attraction between Gabe and Sam is so hot, it is a wonder that sparks do not fly off the pages. Jennifer Apodaca writes an appealing who-done-it that will keep her audience interested in more books starring this soccer mom. <P>Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful?
