Dana Mackenzie lands a job with a faceless financial institution-it's either this or piercing ears at the mall-and while she's grateful for a job, she has no intentions of following the corporate offices' heartless orders.
She's sent to the home of an elderly couple with instruction to repossess their television, but instead finds sweet old Mr. Sullivan murdered. Investigating the case is homicide detective Nick Travis, Dana's high school crush, who's still harboring a dark secret from their past.
Dana agrees to help Mr. Sullivan's grieving family locate his grandson, a guy with a surprising new lifestyle. Her good intentions put her in the thick of the murder investigation and on a collision course with the killer.

This is the second book I've read of Dorothy Howell's and I absolutely LOVED this one. The characters are great, the mystery is great, and the background stories on the characters leave you wanting more. I can't wait to read the next book in this series. If you love cozy mysteries, read this series!
I really enjoyed this first entry in the series. I found Dana to be a likeable character and she might do a pretty good job when she runs the world and I agree with a lot of the things she wants to do when she does. The mystery was good and kept me guessing. I liked the chemistry between Nick and Dana. Looking forward to reading more in the series.
