I’ll take that mystery with a side of humor and romance, please…and Diane Burton listened! The Case of the Bygone Brother could be the case that puts Alex in the black as her fledgling career as a Private Investigator is careening dangerously over the red line. All she needs are a few cases like this one and she will be a force to be reckoned with in a predominantly male profession, oh, and she’ll be able to pay bills and eat, too! Determination, a will to succeed and her ability to think logically are her strong points, but, just maybe she could stand brushing up on her use of caution. Thanks to a surprise visit from her ex-boyfriend, she is getting a huge dose of “I told you so’s “and those male-type warnings that make her hackles rise. Did Nick, oozing charm and charisma out of every gorgeous pore really have to show up now? What exactly are his motives? Meanwhile, does the woman who hired her to find her brother really want him found? Does she have ulterior motives or is someone else trying to make life difficult and dangerous for Alex? Will Nick prove to be friend or foe? Diane Burton has the gift of comedic timing! Right in the midst of intrigue, out comes one clumsy fall, a few zinging one-liners and even twists to make a Twizzler dizzy. If you like your mystery tough to solve, yet cozy enough to chuckle over, here’s your story! Want a heroine who has brains, yet is endearing enough to show a few flaws or one who admits they may have been wrong? Alex is your woman! Great dialogue, suspense and a healthy dose of fun reading tossed in, Diane Burton is now on my “must read” author radar! I received this copy from Diane Burton in exchange for my honest review.

In this cozy mystery, I thought I had the mystery solved and then another twist appeared to flummox Alex O’Hara who is struggling to keep the detective agency she inherited from her father and his best friend. What she doesn’t need are the warnings from Nick Palzetti, son of her dad’s best friend and the man she’d panted after so many years earlier. Page-turning action and believable characters I cared for. I look forward to other stories set here.
