Detective Josephine ‘Jo’ Rayburn is a coffee loving knitting freak, and her wit is just on point in this book. She loves her family and will do anything for them, but they are also nosey and loud, but all have a good heart.
Rhysian ‘Rhys’ Harrison, was suppose to be a doctor, but after his parents died, he became the sole carer for his brother (he has learning disabilities) his fiancée didn’t want that responsibility and so he gave up his life and his career to look after him, so love is not high on his lust of priorities.
Murder/mystery/romance, what more could you ask for?
A witty, sassy female detective that took no rubbish from anyone and with a heart of gold. And a man that puts his family first. Neither looking for love, but find it in the most unlikeliest of places.
But can Jo make Rhys see her as more than just an acquaintance? She fancies him something rotten, but with a killer leaving bodies all over town, how can she make time for Rhys?
And can he finally have someone in his life that understands family commitments, can help look after his brother?
It all comes to a head when someone on Jo’s team gets injured! Rhys just can’t take the worry! So will he walk away? And if he does, what will Jo do?
I could see this easily as a tv series or a film. The attention to detail is good. The dialogue had me laughing one minute and then crying the next.
A great story, and I hope this is the start of many adventures for Jo.
