Publisher's Summary

His best friend's been murdered, an old flame needs his help, and her little sister has definitely grown up! Eric Slater has a lot to sort out. Mystery, murder, and romance on the Florida coast. A wry tale of intrigue, deception, and two people that can't help falling in love.

Point Road, home of the obscenely wealthy and the beautiful Jeffries sisters. Eric Slater returns from the Navy to find that his childhood friend may have been murdered. Angela Jeffries begs him to investigate, and Maggie, the little sister he barely remembers, wants to help. It turns out, the stunning redhead is one hell of an investigator.

As their feelings turn romantic, Maggie and Slater follow a trail of deception and murder, hoping to prove their dead friend innocent of what they fear most. No one is safe, and the men involved will stop at nothing to cover their tracks, tracks that will lead the pair into the dark world of child trafficking, and expose the worst secrets of Point Road.

Charming mystery

Retired Navy investigator, Eric Slater is dragged into the PI business when his childhood best friend commits suicide. His friend’s mother and his hs crush both believe that Davy was murdered. Now Slater and his crush’s little sister, Maggie, find themselves digging into human trafficking. Maggie also browbeats Slater into rescuing a 17 yo from her much-older-biker boyfriend. Although this story addresses the serous topic of human trafficking, the witty banter between Slater and Maggie, as well as Slater’s internal snarky monologue, make it hilarious and so worth the read or listen! Narrator Tom Jordan does snark very well!!! Looking forward to the next book.

what a story!

amazingly well written. I couldn't stop listening to the story and was sad when it ended. I can't wait to get on to the rest of Mr. Jones' books.

Good Series Starter with a cliffhanger

This was my first experience with author T.J. Jones. While it took me a bit to click with the writing and Eric as a character – overall this was an enjoyable listen. This story is unique in that while there is a romantic element, it’s at the very beginning stages and never culminates in more than a few kisses. Perfect for folks who prefer the focus be heavier on the mystery/suspense aspects than on relationship. That said, the relationship and banter between Eric & Maggie is truly delightful. Jones writes an intelligent, competent, and independent Maggie who charms the older and sometimes myopic Eric.

I also enjoyed Eric’s growth as a character throughout the book and appreciated that while Eric is former military, he’s not presented as this perfect infallible super-soldier. He needs and accepts (albeit sometimes begrudgingly) Maggie’s help and acknowledges his shortcomings. Eric mentions his love of the series, Magnum P.I. and the book/perspective definitely has that feel to it – though incorporating more grit.

Sensitive readers/listeners need to be aware that mention of human trafficking in the blurb is something to take notice of. The harsh realities of this issue run throughout the book and the topic is discussed fairly graphically. Jones is respectful of the ramifications on the victims and this gives depth and realism to the story.

While an enjoyable and full book, I would consider this a cliffhanger – not only is Davey’s exact cause of death still unknown at the end, there are a lot of further mysteries and questions uncovered during the investigation. I am looking forward to book 2, My Sister’s Fear.

This was my first time listening to narrator Tom Jordon. He gave characters unique voices and personalities. There were a LOT of emotions by numerous characters and he pulled them off well. I especially appreciated performance of the verbal sparring between Eric & Maggie.

Do not recommend

Didn’t get past the first couple of chapters. Just couldn’t tolerate the language and content. Too inappropriate for my taste. Sad when the story could have been clean and quite good. I requested a copy of this audio book from AudiobooksUnleashed and voluntarily left this review.

Great book

I loved the characters and the plot. It was funny with just enough mystery to keep me interested. The book is about a dark subject and might trigger some people who are survivors of assault. It does not go into detail though. I highly recommend it and am looking forward to the next one in the series.

Great start to the series!

I did spoil it for myself a little by listening to book 2 first, but it still made for a great story! I really love the characters and there’s just enough intensity and the odd action scene to keep me hooked!
I loved Tom’s narration he really draws you into the story and has great character voices and has perfect pacing for stories like this!
This is my honest opinion on a free review copy.
