Reviewed by Susan Sewell for Readers' Favorite Despite the interference of her law enforcement ex-fiance, a pertinacious accountant attempts to solve a ghastly murder in the delightful sleuth mystery, So About the Money (Holly Price Mystery Series Book 1) by Cathy Perkins. When Holly Price's father skips out on his wife and their business, Holly leaves Seattle and temporarily returns to the small town of her childhood to help her mother. While on a hiking date, Holly and her companion stumble upon the corpse of a woman they both work with. It is a suspicious death and Holly is a person of interest. Worse yet, Holly's ex-fiance, JC, is the detective in charge of the investigation and doesn't seem to be interested in clearing her name. Determined to find the real perpetrator, Holly begins making her own inquiries. However, in doing so, Holly ruffles a lot of feathers, including those of JC. Now someone seems to be gunning for Holly, and JC insists she stay out of his investigation. Can Holly prove to JC she isn't as inept as he supposes and expose the killer? Or will Holly become the killer's next victim? So About the Money (Holly Price Mystery Series Book 1) by Cathy Perkins is a fabulous amateur sleuth murder mystery. It is an exemplary 'whodunit' with a captivating story line that keeps the reader guessing until the murderer is revealed. The story moves along at a good pace, with an intriguing plot and compelling characters. The protagonist, Holly, with her compassion and good sense, is a classic heroine with an engaging personality that is easy to like. This story makes a fantastic start for a new series, and I am looking forward to reading more of Holly's sleuthing adventures. Very professional and nicely done! Readers who enjoy novels with spunky protagonists will not want to miss meeting Holly Price; a respectable accountant and the new gumshoe in town.

Can you say intrigue? For lack of want to duplicate the book blurb, here's a quick rendition of the book without giving the big stuff away: girl moves away to work in big city, returns home to help mom run her business, stumbles over a dead body which puts her in a funky position, runs into her ex - ex's of ex's (I'll leave it at that), and then uncovers all sorts of intrigue and mysteries by just doing her J.O.B. as an accountant. Did you hear that. Numbers...boring. But this novel is far from boring! At first sight, Holly is a self-assured, self-confident, determined woman. Some folks might judge her as a feminist - she's totally against taking orders from men, but what woman isn't? I honestly don't think that describes her accurately. She has loads of emotional baggage that will explain all of that, but what I really want to share with you is the structure of this story. Hints and clues are scattered just right throughout the pages, all deepening and increasing the farther along the tale grows. I love how intricate the mystery gets. With the splattered past of so many characters entangling between different threads the story goes from roller coaster interesting to sky scraper complicated. One moment I thought this character was guilty and then the next moment I thought it was another. I couldn't wait to figure this mystery out. The writing is easy to read and flows from one scene to the next. All the T's are crossed and the I's dotted when it comes to the logistics of the accounting process and the banking world. (Honestly, I'm a writer, so what do I know about numbers? Point being: I believed it all.) And being the romantic that I am I have to mention the tension Holly finds between herself and her ex. Yes, her ex, Detective JC. It's not overdone, but still it felt epic to me. So if you enjoy all the mystery, intrigue, twists, and tension that suspense slash crime fiction offers, you'll love this book! Added bonus: it has a sweet, satisfying ending; though I would love to keep on with Holly and JC's relationship. (*Hint, hint...Ms. Perkins.)

Certified public accountant, Holly Price, gets more than she planned for while hiking with her boyfriend one day. The two of them stumble upon the dead body of Marcie, one of her friends. Since there were no witnesses to the crime, Holly is considered a suspect. To make things worse, one of the policemen investigating the murder, J.C., is her old flame. While Holly is determined to figure out the case on her own, J.C. is determined to not let her out of his sight-for both professional and personal reasons. "So About the Money" is an exciting book full of twists and turns. The story is brilliantly written to keep the reader guessing at every turn.
