In this thrilling romantic mystery, Laura Black is an investigator for the highly successful but slightly shady Scottsdale lawyer, Lenny Shapiro. This time, she's tracking down a wealthy Scottsdale cougar named Jacky Wade, who's been missing for a week and her clueless boyfriend, Terry Lennox, is getting desperate. But even after Laura manages to find Jacky, it seems that the trouble is only beginning. First comes the death threat. Next there's the murder. Finally there's the kidnapping.

I absolutely love the Laura Black series. I listened to the first 2 books on Audible and then read the remaining books in the series on my Kindle. I really wish the remaining books would come out on Audible as I would buy them even though I have already read them.

When a thief who preys on the super-rich women of a high-end dating website turns up in Montgomery, it's up to Private Investigator Lexi Graves to lure him out before he goes to ground. To make matters worse, he's evaded capture numerous times, and this might be the last chance to catch him before he retires altogether from the high-stakes game. Newly single and thoroughly confused, the last thing Lexi wants to do is date a string of men whose photos are optimistic, to say the least. But one on her short list is the thief and a rogue.

This series always delivers a fantastic read. Contains all my favorite things: suspense, adventure, wonderful ongoing characters and of course a touch of romantic angst. Can’t wait for the next one!

Phone calls before dawn are never good news. And when you're the county's prosecuting attorney, calls from the sheriff are rarely good news, either. So when Bell Elkins picks up the phone, she already knows she won't like what she's about to hear, but she's still not prepared for this: sixteen-year-old Lucinda Trimble's body has been found at the bottom of Bitter River. And Lucinda didn't drown - she was dead before her body ever hit the water. With a case like that, Bell knows the coming weeks are going to be tough. But that's not all Bell is coping with these days.

Sienna Diaz is everyone's favorite "fat" funny lady. The movie studio executives can't explain it, but her films are out-grossing all the fit and trim headliners and Hollywood's most beautiful elite. The simple truth is, everyone loves plus-sized Sienna. But she has a problem: she can't read maps and her sense of direction is almost as bad as her comedic timing is stellar. Therefore, when Sienna's latest starring role takes her to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, she finds herself continually lost.

The Neptune Grand has always been the seaside town's ritziest hotel, despite the shady dealings and high-profile scandals that seem to follow its elite guests. When a woman claims that she was brutally assaulted in one of its rooms and left for dead by a staff member, the owners know that they have a potential powder keg on their hands. They turn to Veronica to disprove - or prove - the woman's story.

Was disappointed the narrator was not Kristen Bell. All else really good. Liked seeing Leo back in Veronica's life. But still want more Logan.
