Janet Maple and Dennis Walker are aces at catching the bad guys, but an assignment involving an international gangster and a sleazy politician just might have them in over their heads.

With the man of her dreams on her arm and a dream job at one of NYC’s top private agencies, Janet’s life is nearly perfect. It all changes when a high profile case falls into her lap, and Janet finds her competitive streak kicking in, taking risks she shouldn’t be taking.

Dennis Walker loves catching the bad guys as much as he loves being in the limelight. Will he be able to share the laurels with his girlfriend who also happens to be his work partner? And will the bad guys get caught?

*Bad Guys Get Caught is book three of the Janet Maple Series, but it can easily be read on its own.*

***Tina #NerdGirlMama’s  Review***

Bad Guys Get Caught, book 3 in The Janet Maple Series, we are reacquainted with Janet Maple and Dennis Walker who are in a new relationship, and are partners in white collar crime investigators.  The white collar crime they are asked to investigate in this book 3, is the background of a senate candidate who seems too good to be true, and in fact that is so not the case with this guy.  I do not give out spoilers so that is as much as I will say, but read the book and find out what they find and how they get the bad guy.

The characters are written well and are relatable, and I found that the Author has improved on the characters even more that the first 2 books.  The Author has written this book 3 as a standalone, and gives you flashbacks in order for you to get the background of the main characters and has improved on the amount of them in this book.  I rate this book at 4 out of 5 stars in that each book there has been a progression of improvement.  All in all this is a good light read and I did enjoy reading this book and would say if you enjoy a little crime and romance than pick this one up and try it, but even though a standalone read, I suggest you read book 1 and 2 first.
