4.5 This book picks up right where the novella left off and it is a roller coaster ride of any adventure. Katerina has more men and problems in her life than I have shoes! The quick paced subplots that all start to entwine as the story unfolds lead to an incredible experience for the reader. This author kept me at the edge of my seat and reading when I should have been doing something else . One of many things that I liked was to see the progress that the main character Katerina makes as the story progresses. As she has various jobs and experiences, she learns and applies what she has learned to the next situation. This growth adds a dimension to the character and was well written. I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book in this series.
Being into character driven plots, boy did I get some interesting ones in this book. And the funny thing is, none of them are what you would classify as good guys. Well, maybe the cop is, but not the others, not even Katerina. Strong characterization by the author made them quite likeable. Kat’s got her hands full trying to attend college and keep up with the demands of her assignments from MJM. Stubborn and independent, she has no choice but to seek assistance, and beggars can’t be choosers. Most of them aren’t what you would call good guys either. But they’ll do in a pinch if Kat wants to come out of this alive. I haven’t read the first book, The Naked Man, and wish I had before starting this one. The author did clue me in on past events but I stumbled a bit and had to fill in some blanks myself. One of those blanks was how Kat got into a job like a fixer. She’s just a young woman going to college and her assignments as a fixer usually fall on the other side of legal. And I’d like to know more about how she met Alex Winter. also known as Bob. a professional thief. They sure have chemistry when they’re together and I’m hoping the next book gives them a chance to explore that. I still had quite the adventure and several nail biting moments of suspense. Rosenblatt is a new author for me and there are some writers who don’t blink about knocking off their characters. Hence the nail biting. While some assignments get wrapped up in the end, there’s still a lot going on and you’re in for a bit of a cliff hanger. I didn’t mind as I plan to grab the first book and get caught up while waiting for the third one to come out. I’m glad for the chance to read this story but would recommend you read them in order.
This is the first book that I have read by this author, but it won't be the last. However, it is the 2nd in a series and would recommend not reading them out of order as I did. Katarina Mills the fixer, works for MJM Consultants, an agency that caters to wealthy clients assisting them with requests that sometimes are not above board. Putting herself through law school and helping to provide for her mother, the money received once a job is done, the compensation is staggering. However, there are many risks involved. The story has continuous suspense with murders, blackmail, big money, drugs, disappearances, a dirty DEA agent, and above the law antics. I am looking forward to the sequel in this series, but plan to catch up with the 1st book, THE FIXER: THE NAKED MAN, in the meantime.
Kat’s a Fixer. You have a people problem, just give her a call and she will get take care of it. Illegally…maybe. Then…why is she dating Detective Ryan Kelllan, whose search for answers in the murder of Felicia Reynolds touches awfully close to home and her secret. The more work she does, the deeper she gets. She witnessed a murder. Her father is being hunted and they think she has answers. Bad guys…good guys…they all want her. Danger surrounds her…does anyone ever get out? And then there’s Alexander Winter. I have a picture in my mind of this fascinating character and he is someone who intrigues me. He leaves me wiith more questions than answers. The Fixer was thought provoking and I enjoy mulling over the questions left to answer after having read a novel. Have you ever wondered how you got into a situation? And how far is too far.? Pretending to be someone else can be a fun adventure, but what do you do when the bill comes due? A little more sense of urgency and maybe some more details of the incidents and her feelings would bump up my rating, but one thing is for sure…I want more of her story which doesn’t end here. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of The Fixer by Jill Amy Rosenblatt.
Reviewed by Anne-Marie Reynolds for Readers' Favorite The Fixer: The Killing Kind (The Fixer - Katerina Mills Book 2) by Jill Amy Rosenblatt is the second book in a series. Kat is back as The Fixer and this time she is in way over her head. Christmas is coming but, with her job as The Fixer, her college classes and a lovesick policeman to deal with, Kat really isn’t getting into the spirit of things. Simon Marcus is a hedge fund manager and he wants Kat to get his Porsche back from his wife. But someone else wants the car as well. Paul Patel is a writer and what he wants Kat to get, what will help him finish his new book, could land her behind bars. And who is Tomas Gallagher? He never gives Kat a hard job, but there is something about him. Kat needs some help and Alexander Winter is just the man she needs. But, once again, Kat is heading into trouble and it’s all down to the first Fix she did. Who is after Kat and why? The Fixer: The Killing Kind (The Fixer - Katerina Mills Book 2) by Jill Amy Rosenblatt is every bit as good, if not better, than the first book in the series. Even more action is packed into this edge-of-your-seat tale as Kat leads us on another thrilling journey. Fast and furious is how I would describe this; if you let your attention lapse for just one second, you will lose the plot. Again, the plot has been well-written and the character development continues from Book 1, allowing us to learn more about Kat and what makes her who she is. You probably could read this is a standalone novel but, in all honesty, it's best to read Book 1 first. Another great offering from Ms. Rosenblatt. I hope there is more to come!
Kat is back ! The Fixer: The Killing Kind is book 2 in Jill Amy Rosenblatt’s The Fixer Series. It picks up exactly where book 1, The Fixer: The Naked Man, left off. I would not recommend reading the books out of order or jumping into the series with book 2. The author gives readers of book 1 enough to jog their memory but not enough for new readers to whole-heartedly jump into the story. Katerina is a smart, beautiful, in-debt college student who is in over her head with her latest assignments from MJM. Her pithy wit and charm get her far in juggling clients and securing paid assistance. The plot of this thriller is fast paced. Ms. Rosenblatt has thrown in a lot of story threads, and she deftly weaves them together with plenty of new secondary characters and their increasingly complex demands. In fact, each of Kat’s assignments from MJM become more and more complicated as she begs and borrows assistance, and as her father’s past comes back to haunt her. Stubborn Kat tries desperately to do everything on her own, but can she complete her missions and stay alive if she doesn’t confide in someone? The increasing complexity of the situations reflects Kat’s astuteness, however, one has to question how this twenty-something got so street-savvy. My one complaint is that Kat faints too many times to end a scene. However, one could argue that she is exhausted by her predicaments as they seemingly spiral out of control. The addition of sinister new characters Uncle Sergei and Thomas Gallagher is concerning. It is clear that they will have a role in the next book, and I fear it means trouble for Kat (and perhaps a loved one). Alex Winter, AKA Bob, is still present in Kat’s life, and his care for her has moved beyond mere gratitude. Clearly Winter will be a player in the next book, and I’m hoping Ms. Rosenblatt throws Winter and Kat together romantically. The Fixer is high-spirited, fast-paced fun. The complexity of Kat’s “juggling” act will make your mind spin. The cliffhanger will leave you anxious and wanting answers and resolutions. Stay tuned for hair-raising adventures on the opposite coast in The Fixer: The Last Romanov.
