When Liza Radley realizes it’s cheatin’ season and no self-respecting detective’s gonna spy on her husband for the $800 and change she has hidden in a plastic soap dish, she does what any normal transplanted Georgia Peach would do--she becomes a private eye.

While downing her fourth maple-glazed curbside, Liza discovers “Eye Spy”, a shop for the self-motivated sleuth in the heart of Boston. Inspiration strikes and she enters the world of Jack Parella, the owner/operator who talks like Humphrey Bogart but with a Southie accent and is more than willing to train Liza in the ways of amateur sleuthing, while simultaneously infuriating and titillating her.

Though Liza starts the journey intending to rebuild her crumbling suburban life, she finds herself thrust into a fiery mystery as head of "Crimes of the Heart Detective Agency" with Parella by her side. Thus our dynamic duo is primed for their next adventure.

This story was fun right from the start. Liza Radley is really devastated when her friends tell her that her husband is cheating on her. She tries to hire a wacky detective agency, which costs more than the $800 she had been hiding from her husband, so that is out. After eating four donuts, she discovers a shop that has everything a person would want to become a private eye. Along with finding spy equipment, she meets up with the owner, a sexy ex-cop who finds the entire thing funny. So did I. I laughed and giggled all through this entire book. She was so naïve at first, but after discovering that her husband was in fact, cheating, she sets out to get even with every cheater she can find. There are a lot of twists and turns in this story. Threatening notes to both Liza and the sexy shop owner, Jack Parella. He tries very hard to act like he thinks someone like Humphrey Bogart would behave, which I find funny. When they finally solve all the current problems, together Liza and Jack begin sleuthing. Now instead of just a spy shop they have a new agency called Crimes of the Heart. Liza and Jack are ready to track down every cheating spouse. In this story there are lots of fun characters that I found quite endearing, including her three best friends, her mother and her father. I never stopped smiling while I was reading this book, and sometimes I actually laughed out loud. This was one of the most delightful books I have read in a long time, and it is only book one. Another book is coming out soon, and I can hardly wait. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a fun story to read.
