Despite their economic and social differences, Addison Allen and Harley James have been inseparable since sixth grade. But when Harley is arrested for the murder of her ex-boss, prison bars threaten to be the one thing that finally comes between them.

The body left on Harley’s doorstep proves to be too problematic for even Addison’s enormous bank account, forcing the duo to roll up their sleeves and search for the murderer themselves. Working to prove Harley’s innocence brings out an unexpected passion for investigating a knack for uncovering the buried truth.

However, their freshly-acquired skills propel them into a dangerous new world full of lies, secrets, and quite possibly…romance.

Will they be able to keep Harley out of jail?
Or will they lose their hearts, and maybe even their lives, in the process?

***Stephenee -#NerdGirlSteph’s  Review***
Author Tracey Jane Jackson has been one of my favorite authors for awhile now (I love her Cauld Ane series and Civil War Bride Series) and author Amanda Washington is a new to me author but one that I am glad got together to co-write this amazing book together! This is a different genre for Jackson, but one that she has no trouble jumping right into and creating a 5 star read of. I loved the style of writing, the banter between friends and possible boyfriends, the energy and the level of mystery that the authors brought to this story.

The pair have written about two friends that we all hope to have one day – the best friend that has your back no matter what and will be there to literally bail you out of anything! The dynamic that the characters has seems so real it is like you are having a conversation with your best friends. You laugh with them, yell at them and become completely immersed in their lives. This is a story that is bittersweet, as you want to know what happens but you hate to see it end. The plot is unique and quick moving and you will have a hard time finding a place to pause…

Addison and Harley have been best friends since sixth grade. Addison, is the rich girl, and Harley, the scholarship kid, along with Asher, Addison’s brother and Harley’s secret crush. They are always there for one another and the reader can feel their bond straight through the pages of the book. Enter the detective, Jake and you have the perfect foursome. I can’t wait to see what these two amazing authors give us next! I see a sequel with Addison and Jake (hint, hint).

You will laugh out loud at the antics of this book and you will soon figure out why the title is what it is – it is a can’t miss, feel good, loads of fun read! Make sure you add it to your TBR list and add it soon – it will make any day a bit brighter!
