THERE'S TROUBLE IN RIVER CITY

Matt Hogan's Memphis detective agency has been on the skids since a recent attack of conscience cost him an important case. When a wealthy investor steps in and saves River City Investigations, Matt thinks all his prayers have been answered—until he finds out that with the investor comes a new partner.

Fresh out of criminal justice school and a two-year stint in the Tunica County Sheriff's Department, Natalie Tubberville is out to prove she can cut it in the world of private investigations. But her reluctant partner is just as determined to have nothing to do with her—until Natalie makes him an offer he can’t refuse! If Matt solves the next case before she does, she will return her share of the company.

And the race is on. As two strong personalities compete, mutual attraction grows…while a simple case of a runaway bride threatens to become an international incident. Will Matt and Natalie call off the competition—or discover an entirely new arrangement?

    When Private Investigation Meets Romance

    What happens when a Private Investigator and an ex-cop are forced to work together in order to save a struggling detective agency? What happens when both the attraction and animosity between them sparks on almost every page? You get Controlling Interest by Elizabeth White.<BR/><BR/>Natalie Tubberville has left the Tunica County Sheriff's Department to try her hand in the world of private investigating. Matt Hogan's detective agency suffered a major financial setback and he was forced to accept partnership with a wealthy investor. With the partnership comes a partner he never expected or wanted, Natalie. Natalie also has no interest in partnering with anyone. So, when a runaway bride is the case they must solve they agree to work together long enough to solve it, but whoever solves it first wins the agency. The sparks fly.<BR/><BR/>In an intriguing twist of plots and characters, Elizabeth has her readers hoping Natalie and Matt find the bride one second and rooting for the bride to get away the next. The runaway fiancé manages to remain one step ahead of them. And the situations they find themselves thrown into can be humorous and dangerous. Elizabeth keeps you turning the pages from start to finish. As the characters travel from Memphis, down the Mississippi River through Louisiana and Alabama, romance and faith weave an interesting story. While this was the first of Elizabeth White's books I have read it won't be the last. I plan to go back and read her others also. I highly recommend this book.

    A Case of the Memphis Blues OR Caution, Here Comes Trouble!

    When Matt Hogan needed money to bail out his floundering detective agency, he had no idea it would come with more than a silent partner. So when Eddie Tubberville's daughter Natalie arrives believing she is now his partner, Matt is more than a little unhappy. And Natalie doesn't help matters when she 'loses' Yasmine Patel, a wealthy Pakistani's daughter sent to the U.S. to marry a Pakistani man Yasmine has never met. What follows is a romp through Memphis and the South - with surprises around every corner - that you'll not soon forget.

    There's Trouble (and Fun) in River City!!!

    Controlling Interest was a really fun story. We first met Matt Hogan in Off the Record. Now he is a changed man but in need of money to keep his agency afloat. Natalie's father buys in and tells Matt that Natalie is his new partner. There first assignment is to find Yasmine(a pakistani woman) who is on the run from her fiance. Her family has issued a reward for her return. Matt and Natalie make a bet that whoever finds Yasmine first gets the reward and the agency. But as they both move closer to finding her, they discover they have feelings for one another. Where will those feelings lead? Who will find Yasmine first...Matt or Natalie? Or...will it be her dreaded fiance? Join Matt and Natalie on their adventures filled with many twists and turns! The characters in Controlling Interest were delightful! My interest was held from page one to the close of the book. You get a chance to see Cole and Laural from Off the Record and find out what's going on in their lives. I loved the book and highly recommend it! I think it's one of Elizabeth White's best.
