Overview

Rivers don't let rocks hold them back.


River Nightingale has decided to blow past the rocky men in her life. She's played by the rules for too long—especially when it came to her career as a cop. She was the top closer of cases for years, but promotions in her small town cop shop went to her less productive male counterparts. River decides it's time to change careers. She leaves her small town to purchase a Seattle private detective agency and become her own boss.


Homicide Detective Gage Hamlin takes pride in his job; he closes cases and fosters justice. All that changed the day River Nightingale sauntered into his office. River has him questioning his pride, his cases, and his aversion to private detectives, especially beautiful private detectives.


River's client thinks Gage got it wrong, and River is forced to prove Gage missed a murder. Will River and Gage find a way to play nice, or will River be forced to leave Gage behind?

P.I. I Love You 4.5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 10 reviews.

Overall rating: 4.4 (advance copy) Short, sweet, and remarkably entertaining! This book did a wonderful job at setting up the scenario for this series, as well as with peaking interest for more in this series. Book one focuses on the founder of the agency, but there are 3 more members that have a story to tell as well. The relationship between the PI and the detective added the romantic spice to the tale without having to enter the mature content world. A great pick me up on a rainy day!

The only complaint I have about this book was that it was too short! I loved the concept of 4 female cops being awesome friends, opening their own business, & kicking a little rear. And of course finding love along the way. The mystery was a little easily solved but I liked how the characters all interacted & in reality I don't think the mystery is the best part of the book. The real gold is found in how the author creates the interpersonal relationships. Hope there are more books in the Miss Demeanor Private Investigation Agency (love that name) story line.

River and three of her friends, all former police women fed up with the male dominated force, establish the Miss Demeanor Private Investigation Agency in Seattle. River accepts a job looking into the alleged car accident of a client's parents and ends up cooperating with homicide detective Gage Hamlin. P.I. I Love You was a short romantic suspense story with the emphasis on suspense. Very entertaining with witty banter between the characters and good chemistry between River and Gage. It's the first in a series, and I would definitely be interested in reading what these private investigators get up to next. I received a copy from the author via NetGalley in exchange for an unbiased review.

P.I. I love you is a new and interesting take on women taking control of their futures and destiny. River and her friends have worked hard for their respective police departments, but yet after years of service and dedication they are constantly passed over for promotions due to being the wrong gender. Not sexist at all right? Instead of making waves, the women end up purchasing a private detective company in Seattle. One of River's first cases, unfortunately, has her steeping on the detective's toes who already closed the case. But River is nothing, if not persistent and she's determined to solve this case and put the family at ease. This was a good book. I enjoyed the concept, but I would've liked if the book was more fleshed out. In regards to "mystery" I'm not sure I would say this is a mystery because the author literally only gives us one suspect. I guess I would've like to have had more people with reasons to murder the parents to keep my mind a bit more engaged and thinking "who done it?" I'm not sure if there are plans for more books with this, but I would've really have liked to seen more about the other women and got to know them as well.

Who doesn't love strong, capable women, funny scenes, and a mystery? I enjoyed this story and will definitely be reading more to the series. It kept me on the edge of my seat and had me laughing out loud, which is always a plus!!

I love the strength of the women portrayed in this story. River is a former cop turned P.I. and finds herself faced with what appears to be a bigoted police detective that she must work with, when she is hired by an influential family. This book is full of danger and suspense, and a happy family secret revealed.

I loved this story! It was amazing! A little to short but boy did it grab my attention right from the start and kept me in it's clutches to the very end. I was so invested in this book. The characters in P.I. I Love You were so realistic I felt like I was part of the women as they went through changing careers and starting their own private investigator business. Then a mystery was thrown in and I was spent I was in heaven. I will be keeping my eyes out for more Miss Demeanor books. Thank you Joanne Jaytanie for giving me another series to fall in love with!

I loved the mystery and suspense it is a wonderful start to this series. A short, sweet and to the point. If anything I would love for it to be longer. The humor gives the story a wonderful touch that really pulled me in. I just love strong women who take the world by storm as these four do. Being a woman in a male world it was easy to relate to these women. Men get by with so much that we women cannot. The plot builds nicely the mystery is easy to work out but the twists are engaging making it a page turner. Blake wants to know who killed his parents and who his sister has been adopted to. He hires the Miss Demeanor PI Agency to find these answers. The plot thickens as shocking secrets come to light spun around mystery and death. I felt so sorry for Gage and he comes to feel about the job he did. As he and River start working together and their romance builds I was so hooked I couldn’t put the book down. I loved the bickering and passion they made it kept the story very interesting. I fell in love with this authors writing style in The Winters sisters as I did again with the start of this series. I love audio and I see she has a few new ones, I plan to buy them along with this one. There is something about audios that really bring the story to life, I find when reading I miss a few things where the audio makes it clear. Bottom line I loved the characters, the plot, mystery, suspense, the touch of romance, the humor and bickering add so much that at times I laughed and chuckled. I can’t wait to read more of this series and see how things turn out for the other 3 women. If you are looking for a thrilling, exciting, suspenseful read this is the story for you.
