Publisher's Summary

Book 3 in the Damaged Goods Mystery Series

Certified Process Server Jackie Parker could do a case study in bizarre human behavior. Like the time the Damaged Goods property management team found a man fermenting his own fecal matter to get high. Or the angry downstairs tenant who threatened to spit on her. And that was just one building in the Miami Arts District.

Returning to the scene of the crime a year later at the request of the landlord, Jackie believes she's ready for anything. Since the Dark Prince left the team, she and Luke have gone through an amicable divorce and maybe just this one time she can manage to not land face first in something foul. But what they find in the vacated apartment is far worse than on their earlier visit and Jackie's situation is about to get a whole lot messier.

Cue Logan.

Don't miss the epic finale to the Damaged Goods trilogy, it's a laugh a minute and what listeners describe as "More addictive than krockodil!"

Another Success

One of my new favorites. Hoping there will be more in this series. Easy listening and a fun escape. I love the quirky characters.

Not my favorite

Just was not my favorite. Couldn't listen to entire story flash backs were not needed. More mystery and less spoiled child 3 way love triangle confusion.

Is this the end?

Jackie and Luke are divorced but still working together - and her mom's boyfriend John - at Damaged Goods. She has not seen Logan ever since Christmas, and when she does it is not as she expects.

In danger after a gruesome discovery in one of the rentals, Logan kidnaps Jackie to a safe place and adventure ensues. There is a shocking twist I did not see coming!

I was fortunate to get an Audible code for a relaxed listen. I read the book a couple of years ago and it was quite nice to be with Jackie again!

Love the narration

This book, while enjoyable, didn’t have the same feel to it as the rest of the books in this series. The case Jackie got herself involved in was just too big and it lacked the cozy feel to it. Granted, this one she was forced into and not one she actively went looking for, but the sentiment holds true. There was also way too much family drama for my tastes. To be honest, I was over that by now. I know that it’s not an easy situation, but it overshadowed everything else.

Jackie is supposedly a smart woman, but her decision making don’t really reflect that. I get that she’s torn between Luke and Logan; she has history and feelings for them both. I don’t really have a preference either way – at least a strong one – but I do feel that she’s forced to make hasty decisions and aren’t really allowed to process her own wants and feelings. Both men push and pull and make demands on her in their own way. To the point where I’m wondering if she’s really sure of the choices she makes.

I think my favourite part of this book was Suzanne Cerreta’s narration. She was brilliant as always and brought the characters to life. She knows them, who they are and makes the listener know them as well. She adds feelings to her words, distinguishes between characters and is in general very pleasant to listen to.

A copy of this book was generously gifted to me by the author.

Just OK

The continuing saga of the damaged goods crew...overall the story was good but there were a number of flashbacks that went on for so long, it was confusing. As one reviewer noted, I'm not sure they were absolutely necessary. Suzanne Cerreta does a great job with the narration as always.
