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.
