Best friends Addison Allen and Harley James are licensed, bonded, and ready to private investigate the heck out of Portland, Oregon. Sure, their first case doesn’t go swimmingly, but at least they caught the cheater. However, in doing so, a rift was caused between Addison and her boyfriend, Detective Jake Parker, that might be beyond repair.

Needing to get away, the besties agree to investigate a possible jewel thief in Harley’s backwoods hometown. Only there’s a lot more to this case than missing jewelry, and the duo will have to face down Harley’s old nemesis, compete in the annual roundup, and jump a train to get to the bottom of it.

Can they find the thief before Harley’s hometown secrets catch up with her?
Will Jake come to his senses before a hot cowboy steals her heart?

***# Review***
 Best friends Addison Allen and Harley James are back in their second installment and it doesn’t disappoint in any way!! This is book 2, but it can be read as a standalone and still be easily understood. It briefly recaps the events of book 1, but doesn’t completely re-tell the story so the reader will not feel like they have already read it. I continue to love the diversity of the author and the way in which she can weave a tale that leaves the reader wanting more!

This story starts off with a flash, the flash of the camera catching a cheating husband and only continues to get better and more exciting from there. Harley gets a call from her dad that brings the girls back to Harley’s hometown where they have to help catch a jewel thief. The mystery continues to mount as they find more information than they hope for and that eventually leads them to the thief and a would be killer….the story leaves the reader on the edge of their seat wanting more while at the same time not wanting the story to end because they don’t want to leave their friends, and believe me you will consider Addison and Harley your friends by the time you finish this story.

The authors do an amazing job of maintaining the suspense of the story and for not letting the reader figure out what is going to happen next. The ride takes you on a twisting, turning, looping, curving road that is filled with fun, humor, excitement and a bit of drama. You will laugh out loud at several parts throughout the story, so be aware of your surroundings as you read it!

I am already looking forward to book 3 in this series and can’t wait to see what kind of adventures await these two next! Do yourself a favor and add this book and book 1 to your TBR list! It’s a can’t miss, must read!!
