    I wasn't sure what to expect with this book, just based on the cover picture. I couldn't put it down!! I loved her writing style and the story moved along so I just had to keep reading.

    I'm a sucker for mysteries especially ones with a bit of romance but this book doesn't do it for me. The characters aren't very interesting and the story moves very slow. There's a paragraph in the book that made me believe the author is a bit racist and that just made me put the book down. Waste of time.
  • Fun new series

    This first book of the Gotcha Detective Agency hooked me. I found the characters interesting, and the plot had me guessing who the bad guy was! A quick, easy read that was loads of fun. Can't wait to read the second book in the series.

    Sooooo many things in this story just don't jell. Scott's technical skills are good---with exception of personal pronouns. He/him, she/her, them/their present problems for this writer. A few pages in I was grinding my teeth. This is a thin story that moves slowly and doesn't go anywhere. (1) The characters aren't well developed; particularly the killer. (2) There is vampire "activity" but it's play acting--literally. The players meet downtown once a week for purposes that are never clear. (3) The detective's hormones give her grief. She lusts after male upon male. That too goes nowhere. Irritating. Scott may be setting up content for subsequent books. For instance, the detective's husband is believed dead in a plane crash a year prior to this story. Scott mentions this event 10-12 times, making sure the reader knows no bodies or personal effects found at the site. That information has nothing to do with the current events. There are many good books out there. This isn't one of them. Don't waste your time.

    Let's start with the fact it was a free book. I do like that and the opportunity to find new authors. The book was a fun read, and I enjoyed the characters which hopefully develop in further books. Mimi is a special agent turned PI. I found this hard to get into while reading the book because she certainly lacked PI skills. I suppose I expect a special agent to be smart, deductive, strong. None of that was happening. She had some tough cookie moments, but they were rare and fleeting. The threatening phone calls...and she kept writing them off as pranks??? That frustrated me! Rarely do I peg the "murderer" but I had this one figured out before being half way through the book so plot was way thin and easy to figure out. I hope the rest of the books develop, but not sure I will purchase any.

    This should sell you some books. Didn't get through the first chapter. Too gorey, too much information for my liking. No thanks.
