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.

Where does Scottsdale Heat rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

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.

What did you like best about this story?

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.

Good fun!

kidnapping, PI, theft, suspense, lol-humor

Take three hilarious and hot women working for a connected lawyer add a wealthy woman with a fool of a grandson, a hot cop, a mob boss, and a dead body or two, and you have this really fun read! Lots of action, suspense, gunshots, and lustful thoughts, but no erotica. A really fun read!
Karen Krause gives an interesting audio interpretation.

Fast paced and lots of fun!

Would you listen to Scottsdale Heat again? Why?

I've read the author's Scottsdale stories before and really love them. They are light hearted, humorous, and fun. They've always reminded me of Stephanie Plumb in the way Laura gets into trouble but always manages to come out on top. I like the humor in the books. It goes from subtle to laugh out loud. I can't wait until the next one comes out.

What did you like best about this story?

At its heart, these are stories of the friendship between Laura, Sophie, Gina, and the people around them. They each approach life in different ways, but each is a good person and acts to bring out the best in each other. Plus, Sophie is hilarious. She seems to have no filter and whatever goes into her head comes right back out her mouth. She's the best part of the books for me. It good to read a story about three modern women trying to find love and survive in Scottsdale.

What about Karen Krause’s performance did you like?

This my first time listening to Karen Krause's narration. I love the way she brings out each characters personalities. I'll definitely go through her catalogue and find other stories she's read.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I like that the book was fast paced but not overly deep. It is the kind of book where you can listen to part of it today and part of it tomorrow without having to take notes to remember who is who and who said what.

Any additional comments?

Hurry and put the rest of the series on the site.
