What I'm Reading...
Here's the deets from Lois Greiman's website:
A homicide detective Jack Rivera has a killer body, a wicked smile, and a velvet touch. Just ask Christina McMullen. The cocktail-waitress-turned-psychologist has handled obsessed patients, love-struck drunks, and her own guilt-tripping mother with aplomb. But when it comes to the lieutenant, Chrissy has an old-fashioned case of irresistible attraction—until things turn fatal when Rivera is accused of murder!
Not only was Rivera found unconscious next to a dead woman, but the victim was his beautiful ex-girlfriend—who left Rivera for his wealthy dad. Chrissy detects a few father-and-son issues—along with plenty of evidence that her would-be boyfriend is guilty. But when she starts looking into the dead woman’s past, a rich senator’s connections, and Rivera’s relationship with his mother, will she discover there’s hope for her and Rivera after all? Or will her curiosity have deadly consequences?
I read the first two in this series years ago, and have just now gotten back to it. They're great fun,, and if you like the Stephanie Plum series, I think you'd like these. The voice is similar (very similar, imo) and the characters are fantastic.
I hope you have a fantastic day and a great weekend!!! Oh, and don't forget to watch the night sky for the meteor shower (midnight until sunrise is supposed to be the best time).
Peace and love,
