Overview

Who says crime doesn’t pay?

Luca Bennett makes her living looking for people, but her sights aren’t set on lost children separated from their parents at a busy mall or elderly Alzheimer’s patients who wandered from the nursing home. She’s a bounty hunter paid to apprehend fugitives on the lam.

Luca caught her latest job from new-in-town, criminal defense attorney, Veronica “Ronnie” Moreno. Ronnie’s client, seedy local businessman Jed Quitman, failed to show up for court, and Ronnie wants him found right away. With Jed’s mug smiling from dozens of billboards and low-budget, late-night television commercials, Luca figures finding him will be a breeze.

It doesn’t take long for Luca to realize there’s nothing simple about this job, from a stranger threatening her to stay away, to the fiery hot woman who has Luca looking for more than the usual one-night stand. The hunt for Jed quickly turns complicated, and the pursuit is fraught with danger, as is her attraction to the elusive Ronnie Moreno. In a case loaded with twists and turns, can Luca find everything she’s looking for?

    Very entertaining!

    The author lives in Dallas and makes references to places that are accurate. The main character has a sarcastic sense of humor. The story keeps you guessing as to what would happen next and the ending has a satisfying feel to it. The only part I question is the fact that the main character is a lesbian and she seems to encounter a large amount of lesbian and / or bisexual women throughout the story. This seems to add an element of fantasy to the otherwise straightforward story (no pun intended).
