Publisher's Summary

A divorcee in search of justice. A detective stuck in his old ways. Can an unlikely partnership survive a criminal conspiracy?

Three suspenseful mystery novels. Over 25 hours of justice served with a side of sass.

After her messy divorce, Angelina Bonaparte refuses to let any man hold her back. She’s even opened a private eye practice to help other victims of relationships gone sour. So when she crosses paths with a detective who believes a crime scene is no place for a woman, she sets out to change his mind. 

On the trail of a cheating mobster, her sharp wit provides the perfect counter-balance to Detective Ted Wukowski’s shoot-first attitude. And before long, the reluctant partners find themselves sharing clues to help sort through a murdered mistress’ long list of enemies. When the mysterious case of a multi-million dollar inheritance turns deadly, Angelina calls on Ted to help expose an underworld of greedy collectors willing to kill for their crown jewel. And they’ll have to put their heads together to read between the lines of a missing father’s faked obituary. 

With each new assignment, Angelina and Ted’s mutual respect grows…along with their budding attraction. But when danger lurks around every corner, can Angelina count on him to have her back when the bullets start to fly?

Angelina Bonaparte Mysteries Box Set contains the first three books in a sassy, suspenseful mysteries series. If you like tenacious heroines, snarky humor, and twists and turns you won’t see coming, then you’ll love Nanci Rathbun’s high-spirited private eye collection.

Fabulous!

I love Angelina! How can you not love her? Fifty-something divorcée, with grown-up children and grandchildren, she decided that, no matter what her title says, she won't be a librarian, but a private eye. And boy! is she good!

Angelina is a wonderful character, smart, sensible (until she isn't :P) and determined. A strong woman rebuilding a life of her own, with no time to feel sorry for herself and determinate to look fabulous in the meanwhile.

One of the things I really enjoy in these stories is the diversity in the characters, in every sense of the word. All interesting, all humans and three-dimensional: no cartoonish villains nor perfect heroes.

And the writing is delightful, funny and enticing. These books are simply a joy to read/listen.

Kieren Calland Metts does a superb job narrating, each character unique and identifiable. And let me tell you this: with so many characters that's not an easy task.

I need book four right now! *laughs*

AB Detective Agency

Fifty-something grandmother, fashionista, divorcee Angelina is private detective who falls into murder cases. Simple cases of search and find turn into murder. A fancy car and a killer wardrobe - what's not to like. Likeable characters with flaws make this a great series. I was gifted this from the author.

A book apart from the rest

I really enjoyed this book. I think any fan of Sue Grafton's Kinsey Millhone or Sara Paretsky's V.I. Warshawski will enjoy this book as Angie made me think of both of those characters. It is a must for any mystery fan that like there lady detective to be strong, clever and not afraid to fight and I love her side kick and inter fearing family.

Book one -Truth kills -four stars.
This is sees Angie hired by a pregnant lady who thinks her husband is cheating on her. When the husbands mistress turns up dead she then gets hired by the husband lawyer to prove him innocent. The victim wasn't well liked and it soon becalmed apparent that there were plenty of people who wanted her dead but is her new client one of them?

Book two- Cash kills- five stars.
When Angie's office room mate asks her to help her new client track down where her mysterious inherence came for nobody could guess what she would spark off. The case soon delevelops into more than just looking into a trail of money and Angie and her new partner need to add to the team, a bodyguard, a computer specialist, an ex FBI agent and an librarian.

Book three- Honour kills - five stars.
Angie's routine search for a missing father turns up an obituary notice in the newspaper but as she and her probie partner investigate it turns up to be anything but ordinary. Following a trail of clues turns up lots of twists, turns and secrets. One that might just lead back to Angie and her own connections to the Mob. But what will this case end up costing her? Her family, her boyfriend or even her life?
This was a great collection of stories and I will definitely be looking out for more in this series.
The narrator was very good and I think she did a great job with all the different voices.
