I must admit this is my first book in this series, but really I think I understood enough of the backstory that I don't need to read the rest of the series.
Finley is a paralegal who enjoys doing the job she's doing. She works for three lawyers all with their own quirky personalities. In this story she has a bit of a crush on one of her bosses, handsome lawyer Tony. Tony is a single dad raising his precocious daughter who finds in Finely a new friend. Finley hopes Tony will see her as a potential date.
Then there is Liam, a local PI who has been a love interest for Finley for a long time. Finley finds Liam sexy in all the right places, but he has a few "things" going on in this life, he spends a little too much time with his ex-wife and he isn't like the men Finley usually dates.
In the latest mystery, Finley's boss gives her a bag of old clothes to take to the thrift store. When the bag rips Finley starts going through the contents inside to find some odd items inside. Next thing she knows her boss calls into the office and suddenly quits her job. That is just the beginning of some strange happenings. When her best friend Becky goes missing and the police doesn't take her serious, Finley decides to take matters in her own hands.
While I see this book as much more of a mystery than a romance I will give the author credit for keeping the sexual tension high in the story. Those who love stories that include a lot of fashionista comments, and good secondary characters will want to take a look at the book. Tony's daughter Izzy is a well played character and Liam sounds way to sexy for his own good.
The next book in the series Bargain Hunter will be out in November 2012.
