Zoe Hunter thought all the questions surrounding her ex's mysterious past had been answered. She couldn't have been more wrong.
Free-spirited Zoe lives an unconventional life. She tried the nine-to-five office routine, but it was like the death of a thousand cuts-paper cuts. She couldn't take it, and vowed to make a living outside of a cubicle. Now she's a "Jill of all trades," taking on freelance copy-editing, property management, and even dog walking gigs. Sure, it's a little insecure, but Zoe isn't exactly what you'd call cautious.
Normally she loves surprises and the unknown, except when it comes in the form of a mysterious package, visits from the FBI, and thugs showing up on her jogging route. Zoe isn't sure who she's more afraid of, the FBI or the thugs, so she makes a snap decision and skips town to follow the clues in the package. The trail takes her to London, where she suspects she'll find her ex, Jack.
The authorities think he's dead, but Zoe doesn't agree. Can she find her elusive ex? And what about her new tenet with the shy smile and sexy stubble? Why does he keep popping up in her life? Zoe will have to use her rather eccentric skillset to answer those questions, all the while dodging someone who wants to make this trip abroad her last.

This is one of my favorite "cozy mystery" series. I've read all of them and now I'm listening to them as I power walk. My favorite thing about this series is it is so different from most cozy mysteries. It is more of an adventure series than a whodunit. The books are set in various locations around the world. Each book comes to a satisfying conclusion with the tease of more adventure to come. This second installment is a perfect sequel. There is a good balance of ties to the original book for it to have the coziness of familiarity with enough new material and situations to not feel like it is a rehash. You definitely need to read/listen to "Elusive" first to follow the plot.
I really enjoyed this story and Laura Princiotta is a wonderful narrator. I enjoyed listening to it even more than reading it.
