Overview

Dana's in prison for a murder she didn't commit—and Heidi's determined to find out who did, determined to see Dana set free. But she has no idea how to go about it.

Then, like the answer to a prayer, she meets Gideon Poletti, a San Diego homicide detective, who shows up at the school where Heidi teaches. He's there to give an adult education class in criminology. And he's doing it in her classroom.

Not only is Gideon a celebrated detective, he's the most attractive man she's ever met. But she tells herself she doesn't have time for romance—her friend's very life is at stake! She joins Gideon's class to learn two things. Can he help her? And will he? To her relief and gratitude, he says yes to both.

Their quest for justice uncovers a shocking truth, one Heidi could never have predicted. Nor could she have predicted that her "private" detective would fall as hard for her as she has for him!

    Excellent mystery and romance

    Heidi Ellis refuses to believe that her best friend Dana Turner killed her sister and she plans to prove it even as her pal sits in prison. Heidi has no idea how one becomes a detective as this is no novel where a civilian becomes an amateur sleuth. However, she thinks she may have found the solution when San Diego homicide detective, Gideon Poletti provides an adult education class in criminology that she quickly joins. <P>Though Heidi finds herself very attracted to the cop, she refuses to think of romance while Dana remains behind bars. However, she manages to gain more than just his teaching techniques as Gideon wants her and sees this investigation as the only way to get closer to Heidi. Even with his son objecting and his ex-wife interfering, Gideon cooperates with Heidi by investigating the case. His work and her interference and prodding lead the duo to find giant holes in the conviction of Dana, but will it be enough to free her? <P> This reviewer has been a fan of Rebecca Winters forever and her latest tale, MY PRIVATE DETECTIVE, confirms how good this author is. The exhilarating story line uses elements normally found in a police procedural-amateur sleuth tale to intensify the romance without skimping on the strong mystery. The lead couple is an engaging duo while the support cast adds enough depth that the audience will finish this book in one sitting. <P>Harriet Klausner
