MANY good titles in this group.
Karl had no job, a bossy sister, and then an inherited detective agency.
We meet Karl as he starts up his grandfather's detective agency, and then adds on his niece as an assistant.
Karl was getting jobs, but when he is asked to help break up a drug ring or at least find out where it is, it is a bit more than he was used to. He did like the challenge, though.
I thought it was pretty dangerous, and it made me nervous when he was taking photos and going undercover. I was happy when he was done and returned to his office. That part of the book did become a bit long.
This book has great characters and is a light read except for when Karl was on this dangerous assignment where drugs were being sold and people had been murdered.
You will like Karl and definitely like take-charge Kelsey.
MORDECAI'S ASHES had a nicely flowing story line, plenty of tension, some levity, and a fun twist at the end.
This was an enjoyable read. 4/5
This book was given to me by the author in exchange for an honest review.
After fleeing the crush of a partnership at a large Chicago criminal-defense firm and the humiliation of a professional breakdown, Devlin Winters just wants to be left alone with a couple sundowners on the deck of her dilapidated mahogany trawler on Galveston Bay. But when an old flame shows up on the boardwalk with a mysterious little boy in tow and an indictment on his heels, fate has other plans, and Devlin finds herself thrust onto a sailboat bound for St. Kitts and staring down her demons in the courtroom, as she squares off against an obsessed prosecutor with a secret of his own.
