Overview

For fans of Janet Evanovich, Kate Johnson, and Gemma Halliday...

Armed with cool sarcasm and uncontrollable hair, feisty insurance investigator Amber Fox is back in a new mystery combining murder and mayhem with romance and chicklit...

Three deaths.
A safety deposit box robbery.
The boxing heavyweight champion of the world.

Somehow, they're all related, and Amber has to solve a four year old crime to find out why.

As she stumbles across a trail of dead bodies and a web of lies spanning both sides of the social divide, it's starting to get personal. Someone thinks Amber's poking her nose in where it's not wanted, sparking off a game of fox and mouse - only this time, Amber's the mouse.

Amber's forced to take refuge in the home of her ex-fiancé, Brad Beckett, and now it's not just the case that's hotting up. So is the bedroom...

All Levi Carter wanted to be was the boxing heavyweight champion of the world, but at what cost?

All Carl Thomas wanted was to be rich, but would his greed be his downfall?

All Brad Beckett wants is to get Amber back, but there's a reason for the ex word.

Be careful what you wish for...you might just get it.

"I was hooked in this book from beginning to end. This is a very well written book that has humour and romance." - Geeky Girl Books

"If you like Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum I think you will really like Amber Fox - I know I do." - Martha's Bookshelf

"Amber Fox was hilarious with her tough as nails outer persona and her hysterical one-liners that were frequently laugh out loud funny. I definately recommend picking this book up!!" - The Caffeinated Diva reads...

    Fun and Exciting, give it a read!

    Be Careful What You Wish For by Sibel Hodge is the second book in the Amber Fox Mystery Series. I have not read the first book, The Fashion Police, but this book stood well on its own.

    Amber Fox is an ex-cop, now an insurance investigator with her ex-fiancee Brad for a boss. He has called her in to investigate a boxing match accident. Her current boyfriend, Romeo has asked for a break so she can make sure she wants to be with him, not Brad. The investigation gets complicated immediately with connections to a previous bank heist, a bad guy boxing promoter who Amber has tangled with before, and a few murders to keep things interesting.

    Be Careful What You Wish For is a sharp, fast-paced story with intrigue, evil, romance, and humor. Amber Fox is the kind of strong lead female character with a great sarcastic wit that I love to read. She's not perfect, and that's ok with her and me! She reminds me a lot of Stephanie Plum in Janet Evanovich's series - one of my favorites of all time. Amber's investigative trail leads from person to person and you're never sure exactly who all are the bad guys and who is just caught up in the fallout. It's the kind of tale that keeps you turning the pages to find out! I recommend you give it a try.

    Love Amber Fox

    I read the prequel to this book, nabbed it when it was still free. It was a fabulous book and I fell in love with the character. My only gripe with this book is the repetition of the title multiple times. Otherwise brilliant mystery, brilliant characters, brilliant romance.

    Sometimes you DO get what you wish for.

    Be Careful What You Wish For - Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat and Think With Your Taste Buds - Desserts

    "I arrived at the gym one morning to get some equipment sorted out for the boxers. It was still really early so I assumed no one would be there, but when I went in, I could hear Vinnie and Levi arguing in the locker room. I heard the word 'contract' mentioned a few times." Terry frowned. "I think they were arguing about Levi's contract with Vinnie."

    "Do you know the terms of the contract Vinnie and Levi agreed on?"

    "No. It was signed a long time ago when Levi was twenty, and he would never tell me. Levi was always secretive about what was in it." Terry took a sip of coffee. "Anyway, after I heard Levi mention the contract, curiosity got the better of me and I listened outside. The thing is." Terry paused and bit his lip. "The thing is.I'm pretty sure Vinnie told Levi to throw the fight." Terry gave me a sheepish look.

    I let this sink in for a minute. "What do you mean, 'pretty sure'? What did Vinnie say exactly?"

    "Well I heard Vinnie say, 'You're still under contract with me - you do what I (*^!#) tell you. You will take the hit.' Terry gave me a knowing look. "Later on, when Vinnie had left, I tried to ask Levi if Vinnie was ordering him to throw the fight, but Levi dismissed it. Levi told me he was the world champ, why would he need to take a dive?" Terry looked up at me with worried eyes. "I tried again to get out of Levi what was going on, but Levi just said they were arguing about a personal matter. I didn't really believe him at the time, and now.with what happened last night, I think Levi really did throw the fight."

    Amber Fox, also known as "Foxy" has watched the video of the world heavyweight boxing champion Levi Carter where he lost the match in the 6th. According to her boss and ex-fiancé Brad, owner of Hi-Tec Insurance, Levi did something during the 6th that is unheard of. He allowed himself to be distracted by bank CEO Carl Thomas as he yelled something to him from outside the ring causing a the referee to declare a 'Technical Knockout.' So, what is the problem? Why would Levi throw the match and lose his title? That's what Amber has been given the task of finding out.

    One thing that really peeked Amber's attention was the fact that Vinnie Dawson is Levi's manager. Amber has a history with Vinnie from back when she was on the police force. She put his cousin Lee away for armed robbery and since Lee and Vinnie are close, she feels Vinnie still holds a grudge against her. And this is all proven to be true when Amber starts receiving some very undesirable packages in the mail as well as a sudden infestation in her apartment of the one creature she fears...spiders.

    Making the investigation even harder comes with the murder of a couple of the suspects and then the disappearance of Levi. Amber is sure Vinnie has some kind of hold over Levi and is probably blackmailing him but for what? Hopefully she will find the answers before it gets not only Levi killed but herself too.
