A missing dog collar, a sorority house, and a kidnapping gone horribly wrong. Papaya Springs has kept Bexley Squires on her toes since her ill-fated return. But when a frantic celebrity from her past comes banging on the door of Stronghold Investigations, Bexley quickly offers her services.
With pressure from her hunky police detective boyfriend to move in, and her father and his trophy wife demanding help, Bexley is sucked down into a quagmire of emotional blackmail and self-doubt. Going from investigative reporter to private dick wasn't much of a stretch, but going from a self-sufficient woman to playing house and feeling duped pushes Bexley to the snapping point.
With trouble brewing behind the too perfect façade of Kappa Kappa, Bexley uncovers something much more sinister than a simple theft. When her own innocence unexpectedly comes under question, she'll need her network of friends more than ever.

The second book in the Bexley Squires series does not disappoint! It is a quick read and it has great characters and twists and turns that will keep you guessing the whole time. Temperance Rose's dog is kidnapped, and when the dog is returned, her million dollar collar is missing. So, she hires Bexley to find the collar and the thief. But, as Bexley digs deep into her investigation, she finds much more dangerous secrets lurking below the surface. Bexley is gritty and funny someone I cannot wait to read more about.
Oh yes, Quinn Avery brings our main woman sleuth Bexley back to solve the unsolvable. This time we go into the land of sorority girls... oh yeah, can you imagine how easy that was to get strait honest answers! Correct, it wasn't. I feel like this story had a bit more twists and surprises than the previous book. I enjoyed the previous book, The Dead Girl's Stilettos, a lot but I feel like we didn't have to waste as much time developing Bex. I loved that we get a bit into Bex's love life with Grayson and the ups and down of that. Bex can't seem to keep herself out of danger. Miss Quinn is amazing at keeping me guessing and wondering Round in her twists. I can't wait to see where Bex continues to take us in the next book! I received an ARC of this book with the hope that I would leave an Unbiased Opinion. I was not required to leave a review, positive or otherwise, and my opinions are just that... my opinions.
