Not as good as some other of the authors books-
But this was the most boring "mystery" I have ever read! I am a mystery fan and read several books a week, of all types. Usually when I start a new book, if it is entertaining I can be up for hours till I finish it. This book put me to sleep... kind of reminded me of the old Hart to Hart television series.... with out the engaging characters and amusing situations!
The story takes place in exotic Ocho Rios, Jamaica. I’ve always wanted to go there, but until I do, I’ll visit vicariously through this fun cozy mystery. Sean and Sara will soon be celebrating their One year Anniversary and this will also be their first Velentine’s Day as a married couple. Their plans will have to be put on hold when they receive a phone call from Meredith, their dear friend Jimmy’s new girlfriend, that he’s disappeared. They drop everything and fly to Ocho Riosto find him. Sara and Sean are both former police officers and now own their own private investigation company and put these talents to work as soon as they land. All is not sunny and welcoming in Jamaica and they have to move fast to save Jimmy, protect Meredith, and stay alive themselves. When I reached the finale and discovered the culprits, it came as a complete surprise. I’m wondering if their story was told in a previous book from this series. This is the eight book in the McKinley Mystery Series but I had no trouble reading this before the other books. The author focused on this mystery and introduced the characters in a way that made them quickly become familiar and easy to engage with. Sean and Sara are still in the newlywed mode and share some sweet moments. They are a bit gushy with their endearments, hence the mention of the newlywed mode. I came away from this happy with the ending and eager to go to the beginning and get to know the characters better. To explore how they came to be where they were in this book. A fun, fast read, that will bring me back for more of this series.
This book begins with Jimmy out on date with Meredith a divorcee who isn't sure where her relationship with Jimmy is headed when Jimmy is kidnapped and Sean and Sara are called in to save Jimmy. This book had Sara and Sean in all sorts of directions trying to figure out who the bad guys were and what they wanted with Jimmy and who the real target was. I really enjoyed this book it was full of adventure and mystery along with some romance. It pulls you in and won't give up until everyone is safe and sound! Definitely a great cozy series!
Not sure if I have ever laughed as much reading as I have with this one. This book will take you through laughter, mystery and intrigue. It gives you a little romance. And enough to keep you reading and wanting more. This is a page turner! If you haven't read it yet, you are really missing out! *received for an honest review*
