I have had the pleasure of reading quite a few books by the talented Laura Griffin and I always enjoy her work. This is the first chance I have had to read any by Allison Brennan. I found they both created intriguing story lines in Hit and Run with a great suspense and drama.  In Hit, Scarlet Moreno finds herself in the middle of a dangerous mess involving her friend Jason Jones. When Jason is charged with his girlfriend's murder, Scarlet sets out to clear his name as well as figure out what really happened to his girlfriend. Scarlet finds herself in the middle of a SWAT raid, a dangerous shoot out, and plenty more dramatic situations that kept me turning pages quickly. There are a lot of twists and turns in this story and a lot of mysteries are uncovered. I really enjoyed the Hit part of this wonderful book. In Run, Krista Hart finds herself in a situation that is too profitable to turn down. She doesn't exactly like the client she is working for but she likes the cash behind the case. So she does what she does best. She starts digging around to find out more information on the case. Krista finds herself in some dangerous situations as well and there were a few moments of humor. Krista is working with fellow but rival detective R.J. Flynn. There is some romantic tension between these two that adds to the story as well.  I have to say I enjoyed both Hit and Run and found this book to be a great suspenseful read that kept me glued to the edge of my seat. If you enjoy a great mystery then I think you will enjoy this series. If you haven't read the first book in this series, you won't have any problem reading this as a stand alone. I hope Allison Brennan and Laura Griffin add to this great series. I can't wait to see what more they might have in store for Scarlet and Krista.  I always look forward to new releases by Laura Griffin and can not wait to read what ever she has out next. Now that I have had a taste of Allison Brennan's work I would like to read more of her work. I have a feeling I have been missing out on some great suspenseful stories. I was given the opportunity to read this story so that I may share my thoughts with you. As always it has been my great pleasure to share my thoughts with you on Hit and Run.

Great news for you, the wait is over for the next installment in this series is here. With the two private investigators Scarlet Moreno, and Krista Hart they have taken on two new cases. The one case that Scarlet, start off with is doing a favor for a friend.  Jason Jones is a longtime friend who is with the LAPD, and also wanted for killing his girlfriend. The only person that he can trust is Scarlet, to help him prove that he is being set up, because he is innocent. They have a few problems in proving he is innocent of this crime, and one of them is that the LAPD really want him behind bars. The other one is whoever is framing Jason wants him dead, and she believes that they also want her dead, too. Everything points to a possible connect to the ambush that nearly killed her, and Krista Hart three years before. Than we have Krista Hart, being team up with a rival private detective R.J. Flynn, on another case. This case is more than meet the eye. Krista realizes that nothing about the murder of a beautiful Laguna Beach housewife is not quite what it seems. Krista sets out to uncover the truth--no matter whose side it helps. I would have to say that I really enjoyed this Moreno & Hart series. Especially when you have two authors, with their caliber of talents Allison Brennan and Laura Griffin teaming up again in their second book that featuring the detective duo, and Moreno & Hart. This is a must read, and if you didn’t read their first one Crash and Burn, you need to also pick that one also. If you are a fan of mystery, and suspense with a touch of thriller, than this is just the book for you.

WhenI bought this book, I did not realize that it was two books by two authors! I just thought two authors had written one book! However, both of these books were suspenseful and great reads!

Hit and Run is the second full-length novel in Allison Brennan and Laura Griffin’s Moreno and Hart collaboration. Like the first installment, it is really two separate novellas structured around the same set of characters. While the stories somewhat build on each other, they can be read completely stand-alone. Brennan’s story focuses on Scarlet’s continuing hunt to find-out who shot her three years ago. Hit provides some significant information in the case and leads directly into Lost and Found the latest installment. Run, Krista’s story, has less of an impact on the overarching story and really moves the Moreno and Hart efforts forward. It also provides some together time for Krista and RJ Flynn, the sexy PI she’s been trying to avoid. Both stories are well-written, fast reads. I really like the characters these authors have created and look forward to more of their collaboration. If you haven’t read the first in the series go back and start at the beginning. You need the backstory to keep everything straight. Copy received from the author in exchange for an honest review.

This is book 2 in the Moreno & Hart Mystery Series co-written by Allison Brennan and Laura Griffin. I am a fan of both Ms. Griffin’s Tracer series and Ms. Brennan’s Lucy Kincaid series. I love that they have collaborated to create this female private investigator series. The book is actually 2 separate stores revolving around each character, but they do interact with each other in their individual stories. They have very different personalities and I love how they support each other. The secondary characters are equally engaging. There is an element of romance for both women and some humor, but the action/suspense is “hold your breath” exciting. I highly recommend this series to anyone who likes strong, independent, smart female characters.
