Hard to put down

  • Mar 12, 2007
Kate is a Chicago Detective that has, in the eyes of her fellow officers, turned trader. She is testifying against some crooked cops and is getting a lot of hostility from her coworkers. After a stressful trial she receives a call, informing her that her estranged twin sister, Tara, has committed suicide. Kate immediately fly's to the Big Easy, New Orleans.

Nick was recently kicked off the New Orleans police force for some shady dealings; he is now running a P.I. business. When Kate gets to the New Orleans Police Department, Nick's former partner, Remy, suggests she contact Nick. Kate does not believe her sister killed herself and immediately seeks Nick's help.

Kate and Nick make an excellent team. Nick is trying to uncover a mystery of his own, involving his own family, while helping Kate find her sisters killer. Kate's sister led a colorful life and the people they meet in their investigation reflect that. Both mysteries are full of surprises, twists and turns. Ms. Ross keeps the reader on their toes and glued to the book. There is no shortage of action and the story moves quickly and effortlessly. This is not an easy book to set down and walk away from.

Nick and Kate's relationship is realistic and exciting. They have chemistry to spare, easy banter and a mutual respect for each other and their jobs. They steam up the pages with excellent, hot and fun love scenes.

It lost a star in the rating, only because I felt the wrap up at the end was a little too hasty, too rushed. The ending didn't match the flow of the rest of the book and I was left feeling a little cheated. JoAnn Ross has written a fast paced mystery/thriller/romance. New Orleans is the perfect backdrop for this book. Voodoo and alligators, Bayou's and Bourbon Street, Mardi Gras and beignets, you can practically hear the music and feel the pulse of the city. This was a fantastic book and a fast, easy read.
