Cora has spent the last five and a half years looking for justice for her brother who was convicted of murdering his girlfriend. Shortly after her brother’s conviction her parents divorced and Cora had herself emancipated at sixteen because they didn’t believe in her brother and wanted to forget about him.
When Cora hears of a private investigation agency that will take cases for free she packs up all her files on her brothers case and tries to get them to help her. Leo, the son of the owner of the firm offers to help Cora out mostly because of his instant attraction to her but when the two team up they find they make a good pair.
I rather enjoyed this story. Cora was a strong, independent and determined character that grew up too fast when she put her life on hold trying to get justice for her brother. Leo on the other hand would probably be my one complaint with the story as he seemed very immature to start the book off. I do think he grew a bit on me as the story went along though, he seemed to slightly mature as his confidence with investigating grew.
While the story did seem to focus on the relationship a bit more than the investigation I still found that it had an acceptable mix of both. As Cora and Lea are spending time together they do continue to investigate the case with new developments along the way to keep a reader interested where other stories often fail keeping a good mix.
Overall, fast paced, interesting romantic suspense novel.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
