***Shelly – #NerdGirlXrayer’s  Review***
Before she opens her Private Eye Business Vicki’s husband wants her to take self defense classes. Vicki and her best friend Ruby take these classes with Instructor Julio. What Vicki doesn’t know is because of these classes she will have to put her sleuthing skills to the test.

You will fall in love with Vicki and Ruby and all of there antics. Ruby is interested in Julio but Vicki thinks there is something odd about him. Vick and Ruby will have you laughing many times during this story. They are two strong, funny, and interesting. They succeed in bring much attention to themselves. The secondary characters all added so much depth to this story also. I will admit that sometime Vicki had me yelling no, what are you doing, use your head!?!?! during the book. You know that is a great character to get a response like that out of you.

There is plenty of steamy, panty melting sexy scenes in this book. Vicki and George are rekindling their marriage and it is Hawt. Even though George does have to put up with his wife’s antic of sleuthing that get her in trouble, he is there for her. I did love the steampunk part of the books. Ms. Rose did a great job of writing in detail so that you felt like you were there. The only thing that I wish there was a little bit more of was the doing of Mr. Quin.

Great quick read that had some angst, romance, and mystery to it.
