Yesterday Cece Cash came dangerously close to stuffing Derek North into the trunk of her car and dumping his body in the Vegas desert. Then she snapped out of her daydream and realized he wasn’t worth the prison time.
As much as Cece hates to admit it, she needs Derek. Her old pal’s cash rescued her private investigation agency. Her witchcraft hadn’t been enough to save the business. Luckily for her, Derek has the money and she has the skills. Well, at least she thinks she has the skills. She’s still counting on the spell casting to help.
Now if she can just pay Derek back, she’ll send him packing to Savannah and get him out of her hair for good. Wisecracking and fun-loving Derek has other plans though. He enjoys being a part of the agency. Life is a party and he isn’t about to waste a minute of it. Why else would he come to Vegas?
What happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas. Sometimes the shenanigans pop up in the middle of the desert in a burning car. A successful owner of a fitness club is suspected of murder and disappears right after the crime. Cece and Derek are hired to find the woman and uncover the truth about the homicide of a young fitness trainer. The stakes are high in Sin City for Cece and Derek. Will luck be on their side or will they lose it all?
My Thoughts: Murder and mayhem with a southern twist in Sin City! Super Cute!
Rose Pressey has another awesome series. I love Cece and her quirkiness. The accent, her “hobbies,” the coven, living at the retirement home, the whole package is fabulous. And Derek, he is so adorable, in a manly way of course. His blond hair, blue eyes, gorgeous smile and his ability to make Cece blush. I truly think he is in Vegas for other reasons then just to be a P.I., but we will let Cece figure that out on her own.
I love the murder-missing person aspect of the story. It is so true to see that even if you have the entire package, brains, beauty and a great body you don’t always have the personality and loving spirit to go with it. I truly liked that the people Cece and Derek interviewed were characters themselves.
I loved that Cece’s friends were her neighbors from the retirement community and that even though she isn’t of retirement age she is accepted and even feels part of the community. However the girl could get out a little bit more. The setting in Las Vegas is great. The Elvis and Marilyn Monroe impersonators competitions and performance, classic Rose – getting that Elvis in there. Loved it! Such a great little mystery.
My rating is 5 stars. I loved it and am looking forward to the 2nd installment of this series. I completely recommend this book! It is awesome, you never know what will happen next.
