Presley Thurman tells her boss what he can do with her job in HR, and embarks on a new career as a freelance journalist. What seems like a simple interview with a Senator turns to murder when, the day after her interview, the Senator turns up dead. Does the fact that Presley was one of the last people to see him alive make her a suspect? Her ex-boyfriend Cooper, who was in charge of the Senators security, might think so. Presley is determined to clear her name but can she do it and resist Cooper’s charms?
As this book starts out Presley has just told her boss where to shove it and quit her job. Tired of the sexual harassment he keeps delivering to her she has walked away. Now that reality has set in Presley needs a job to keep her apartment.
She takes up an offer her friend had offered of writing a freelance article about a Senator who's wife is from Presley's hometown. She also figures while she is there she can visit her family.
What she doesn't count on is the Senator ending up dead, and her ability to want to find out what happened to him. Then there is Cooper and old flame of Presley's and what is he doing? And should she give him a second chance.
I love this book for it's adventure and quirky characters it brings in this story. The mystery being solved and sometimes good people make bad choices and not by choice mainly cause they don't see any other option. I can't wait to read her next Presley adventure to see where Presley will wind up next! I definitely recommend this series to anyone who loves mystery, along with good shoe sense!
