Fun, fast paced P. I. mystery featuring Cat Sinclair, a want to be private eye like her daddy. Leaning on caring relationships of a childhood friend and of her mom, and complicated love interests of her boss and of a cop make an interesting story as Cat is determined to solve an old bank robbery that her father worked as a police officer before becoming a private eye.
This was my first read from this author and I enjoyed it very much. The characters were likable, pace moved quickly yet kept you hanging on to every page. I would have liked a few more red herrings in the plot just to make the reveal a little more of a surprise but it did keep me up past 1am reading so I consider that a good read. Hope I don't have to wait long for the next book in the series.
