In her first thrilling romantic adventure, Laura Black is an investigator for a highly successful Scottsdale law firm run by slightly shady Lenny Shapiro. She’s hot on the trail of con-man Alexander Sternwood, the missing grandson of wealthy widow, Muffy Sternwood. It sounded like an easy case, at least until she was kidnapped by a couple of upset Russian hit-men named Boris and Ivan, then by two seriously psychotic brothers called Smith and Jones, then finally by Tough Tony DiCenzo, head of the largest crime family in Scottsdale. To top it off, she’s found a dead body that seems to be a message directed toward her. Now, with the help of ex-cop Gina Rondinelli, a stripper named Danica, and her best friend Sophie, Laura needs to make sure that a slightly illegal international jewel sale goes smoothly, or else. All of this pales in comparison, though, with an even greater danger. Laura has decided that now would be the perfect time to get back together with her old boyfriend Jackson Reno, who just happens to be a Scottsdale detective. The only hitch in her plans for romance is Maximilian, a gorgeous crime lieutenant who has his sights set on Laura, a feeling that she can’t help but return. Craziness, romance, and more than a little danger are in store when Laura Black and her Scottsdale friends are on the case.

Female Investigator drama.
I think that Laura Black is a very good investigator and if she was a police officer would have quite a high rank. Among the books of this genre that I have read, she would come fairly high on the list.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book it was really well written and had a good plot Much of it was extremely amusing and made me laugh a lot. However, there was also a lot that was serious and very exciting as well. There was just enough romance to balance the story out and it fitted in well with everything that was going on. There is also plenty of scope for a series to follow on from here. I am sure it could be really good and expand on the themes already set in this first book.
