This was an enjoyable read that was heavy on the mystery, fairly adept with humor and a bit lighter on the steam than some other books in the genre. Jess and Nate had plenty of rooting value and loads of sexual attraction between them. But those that like their romances sweeter will appreciate that there are no explicit scenes in this one.
The mystery plot of this story was well done in my opinion. There were plenty of clues throughout that made me feel like I was solving the case right along with Jess. I may have put two and two together slightly faster than she did, but this wasn't a problem for me.
There were just a couple of things here that were personal pet peeves and no one else will likely notice them. Being a local, I found it sort of strange that the author name drops specific streets and one of the shopping malls in our city, but the hospital name is totally made up, even though it was obvious to me which one she was referring to. And I noticed many instances where sentences started with a verb and left out the subject completely. Sentences structured that way occasionally for emphasis don't bother me, but this happened a lot and sort of took me out of the storyline, bringing out my inner grammar critic.
All in all a good read and happy to support an author from my neck of the woods. Off to buy the next book in this series....
Jacobs weaves a fun, suspense and highly enjoyable tale. This story is a quick and easy read that really leaves you wanting more. Can't wait to read the next installment of the Hometown Heroes series, Flirting With Fire.
After stopping her for going through a red light, Officer Nathan Steele convinces Jessica to go undercover at the corporation where Jessica's best friend Grace was employed. It doesn't take much prodding because Jessica is already convinced there's something fishy about the car accident that put Grace in a comma and she thinks it's tied to Grace's job.
The author did a great job of ratcheting up the tension in both the mystery plot and the building romantic relationship between Jessica and Nate. Jessica was a wonderful heroine, believable and bright and not afraid to step out on a limb for her bestie. The ending was nerve-wracking and thoroughly satisfying. Great job! I look forward to more from this author.
Despite what one would think looking at the cover, there is plenty of mystery and suspense to go along with the romance between the two main characters. Because it is not only a romance story, the reader can tell the deep friendship between Jessica and Grace and that connection helps drive the story along, as well as the budding relationship between Jess and Nate. I could not stop reading and had a really hard time stopping to do basic things like work and drive myself home- only to finish the book in only a number of hours. Can't wait to read more from this author!
***A word of warning to anyone who lives local to the city setting in the story-- one will picture Nate riding in his cruiser at each FWPD car that passes by and will be itching to drive to the places that are mentioned in the book only to picture these characters.
