Scottsdale Heat

(1 customer review)


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.

    This is the first book by this author that I have listened to or read and I did enjoy it but wish it wasn’t so focussed on most of the females trying to get a man in to bed, any man. They just seemed desperate, were as I think the author was trying to go for funny, think Stephanie Plum. I wouldn’t call it a romantic adventure because there is no romance. Otherwise I did like it. The characters (when they weren’t thinking about sex, whic okay might be hard to do when a lot of the story takes part in a strip club) were fun and made for a good team, if slightly quirky. The mystery was interesting with plenty of characters and a few humours moments. I think I will check out the next book in the series, just to see how things develop.
    Laura Black works as a private investigator for a law firm. One of the wealthy clients is worried her grandson might have got himself into trouble and hires her to follow him and find out why he has money when he just quit his job. He leads her to a strip club where it seems he is dating one of the dancers but she isn’t the only one following him. Then he disappears and Laura finds a dead body in his home. Is he on the run of did the men following him catch up to him? Laura gets into a shot out with the two Russians who were following him, so if they don’t have him who does? When Tough Tony DiCenzo men pay her a visit her simple case gets a lot more complicated and deadly. Everybody is looking for Alex or more importantly what he took. So just who is going to find him first?
    I liked the narrator. I have heard a few audio books read by her and she always puts in a good performance.
