Overview

Thirty-two year old Lexi O’Malley, a boring software programmer by trade, was out of work, out of money, full of attitude and looking for a new career. When her eccentric Aunt Scarlet calls and shames her into helping search for Bubba, her missing, big, dopey, black Lab, she figures she might as well add out of luck to the mix since dog detective wasn’t exactly the great new profession she had in mind.

In the process of tending to her familial obligation, she finds Bubba beaten nearly to death and after Aunt Scarlet’s home is ransacked she accidentally learns her aunt’s handy man is not who he professes to be. While playing amateur sleuth, she’s shot at, pursued by thugs, crashes her car, finds her apartment burned to the ground and discovers that even though she’s short on expertise and not all that brave, she’s a master fibber and can hold her own in a crisis.

Right up there with Evanovich
This really was fun, haven't found a book with characters that made me laugh out loud for a long time. Can't wait for the next one. Good stuff

DM Buckley grabs your attention right away in this hilarious page-turner. The witty, down-to-earth characters kept me laughing through the very end. It moves fast, with colorful secondary characters that add to the hilarity. I can't wait to read Buckley's next release.

I read this at the recomendation of a good friend and I have already thanked them for the referal. I read ALOT, 150 plus books per year, and this was a great read and I hope more people discover this author and this series. The style is a little like Janet Evanovich but with more story. Buy it,read it, and tell others, you wont regret your decision!!

I was intrigued from beginning to end. I laughed out loud, I felt anxious, I cried and I found it hard to put down, which is quite an accomplishment considering reading, in general, even something I'm interested it, tends to put me to sleep.
I hope a LOT of people find it and enjoy it as much as I did.

"When I was a kid I had lots of imaginary friends and we went on all kinds of crazy adventures, so I guess you could say the transition into writing wasn't all that big of a leap."


When asked if Lexi O'Malley, her main character, was modeled after herself, she responds "Absolutely! Just a younger, smarter, thinner, fearless version." As to her partners in crime, she simply smiles and says "They know who they are."


D. M. (Donna Marie) Buckley was born and raised, and still lives in Tampa Florida with her husband and two cats, where she is currently hard at work on Twocan Sam, the next Lexi O'Malley adventure.
