Book 4 of The Dirty Harriet Mystery Series
Patients at a posh Boca Raton rehab center are ending up stiffer than a Boca babe's smile. Tough PI Harriet Horowitz, once a bedazzled babe herself, signs in at The Oasis at the request of a frightened friend.

As a pattern emerges in the murders, it's clear the killer is targeting patients with an unusual addiction. How did they end up with the same drug problem at the same time and in the same rehab together? Harriet's sleuthing leads her down a path of secrets and danger, and what she learns could lead her undercover assignment to a dead end.

Boca Undercover is fourth book in The Dirty Harriet Mystery Series. It is the first book that I have read though. It does stand alone okay, but I think it would have been better to read the first three books in the series. PI Harriet Horowitz is the main character. She is a widow who was abused wife till she fought back one time. She has turned her life around. She talks and listens to alligators. Rides a Harley and air boat. Harriet has a inner vigilante. There is some good advice in the counseling Harriet gets while going undercover at high end rehab center. Harriet gets a call from a old friend who is getting help for her drug use. Harriet agrees to go out and visit her when they find another dead body at the rehab backyard. Her undercover name is Hailey Holloway. The mystery had some good twists that I did not see coming but some might looking back I saw the clues I missed. The setting is Boca Raton, FL. Most of it was at a Posh rehab center. I would read more books in this series. I would like to see where the characters go next. I was given this ebook to read so that I could give a honest review of Boca Undercover and be part of it's blog tour.

This book turned out to be a pleasant surprise. I wanted to give it 3 and a half stars but some places won't let me do that. When I started reading it I had the feeling that it was going to turn into a wacky hi-jinks caper and that's definitely not my favorite type of mystery. But the further I went, the more better it was and the more I liked it. The wacky hi-jinks did not materialize. Lesson to self, always give a book a fair try. This is Dirty Harriet's fourth adventure but I wasn't lost at all by not having read the previous 3. This can be read as a stand-alone without losing anything. Harriet, who use to be a trophy wife and is now a PI, has been called by a friend to check out some mysterious deaths at a high-end rehab clinic. Teens have been dying and so Harriet checks herself in under an assumed name and begins investigating. She has an unusual circle of helpful friends with various skills and she calls on them regularly. The solution is an unusual one and one that I haven't seen before which is great, considering how many mysteries I've read. Harriet turns out to be a likeable character and so do all her friends. That's important to me. The only thing that ended up bothering me was her sarcasm toward normal things and people. It reminded me a bit of Kinsey Millhone and that is the one thing I dislike about Kinsey also. Harriet makes a lot of rude remarks about people who watch television and I'm guessing that the majority of her readers watch some television. I could just do without the patronizing tone toward those who do normal things on a normal basis. Other than that, this is an enjoyable mystery with a interesting ending. I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
