Description:

Francesca "Franki" Amato is a tough-talking rookie cop in Austin, Texas—until an unfortunate 911 call involving her boyfriend, Vince, and a German female wrestler convinces her once and for all that she just isn't cut out for a life on the police force. 

So Franki makes the snap decision to move to New Orleans to work at her friend Veronica's detective agency, Private Chicks, Inc. But Franki's hopes for a more stable life are soon dashed when Private Chicks is hired by the prime suspect in a murder case to find out what really happened to a beautiful young boutique manager who was found strangled to death with a cheap yellow scarf. 

When she's not investigating, Franki is hoping to seduce handsome bank executive Bradley Hartmann, but most of her time is spent dodging date offers from a string of "good Italian boys"—make that not-so-good aging Italian men—that her meddlesome Sicilian grandma has recruited as marriage candidates. As Mardi Gras approaches and the mystery of the murdered shop girl gets more complicated, Franki must decipher the odd ramblings of a Voodoo priestess to solve both the murder and the mystery of her own love life.

My Thoughts: 

This book was sent to me via book tour for a honest and fair review.  This book was great in this story we meet Franki whose having the worst luck in life a cheating boyfriend and a job she can no longer handle.  She quits and moves to New Orleans to work with her old friend Veronica.  

Veronica is owner of Private Chicks Inc.  A detective agency where they help all sorts of people the major one being a murder that happened not long ago and it's up to Franki and Veronica to find out what is going on.

In New Orleans Franki meets Bradley whose almost too good to be true and Franki learns about Bradley's secret and spends a good portion of the book blowing him off not wanting to be with another cheater.

As for the murder of Jessica Evans who killed her?  Was it an old flame of hers?  Or someone she was blackmailing?  Or was it an old friend?  With Franki and Veronica on the case it's only a matter of time before the case is exposed.

I enjoyed this story alot with the action, adventure and of course the humor.  Watching Franki deal with her "nonna" whose trying to set her up with all sorts of good Italian boys.  Unfortunately Franki doesn't want any of them.
