Synopsis

Blood may be thicker than water, but family isn’t necessarily who you’re related to. In this suspenseful mystery with a romantic twist, we follow Private Investigator Michelle Mott on her most exciting case to date.

Wisecracking Mott has been a loner since her parents died. When Daniel Cardinale walks into her office with her most interesting case yet, his world threatens to turn hers upside down. He needs her to find out who is sending him anonymous money and what the truth is behind his dead fiancé’s demise. If his case weren’t complicating her life enough, local crime lord Gino Salito has taken an interest in Mott.

Mott’s empty life begins to fill up with an unexpected and rag-tag group of people, and she’s afraid her dangerous life will take them away, leaving her alone once again.

In truth, it’s Mott’s life that may be the one at risk. She’ll have to hope that blood isn’t always thicker than water.

***Shelly – #NerdGirlXrayer’s Review***
Michelle Mott is an adrenaline junkie. Some of her PI cases put her life in danger. That is what happens the day that Daniel walks into her office. He wants her to find out who is sending checks to him after the death of his fiancé. When she digs deeper into the checks she finds out about some deep dark secrets that include Daniel’s family and the Mafia.

The story line in this book immediately starts with action and does not stop until the end. It covers so much more than just the investigation Daniel hires her for. It jumps from danger to action to romance and to discovering friendships. Just when you think maybe you figured out something Kim changes it up.

The character development in this book was awesome. You have Michelle who is a loner since the death of her parents. She is a smart, tough, and compassionate. Daniel is a very quirky individual that seems to act like a child sometimes but really has not been shown much love or friendship in his life. But to make the book so much more interesting there is a Mafia mobster, a homeless boy, a teen hacker and two adopted cats thrown into the story. Everyone has a history and Kim does a great job of explaining it.

This story is so much more than a mystery. Everyone in this story learns the true meaning of friendship and love throughout the journey. It does show you that blood is not always thicker than water.
