IT manager Mia Connors is up to her tortoiseshell glasses in technical drama when a glitch in the Horseshoe Falls email system disrupts security and sends errant messages to residents of the gated community. The snafu’s timing couldn’t be worse—Renaissance Faire season is in full swing and Mia’s family’s business relies on her presence.
Mia doesn’t have time to hunt down a computer hacker. Her best friend has disappeared, and she finds another of her friends murdered—in her office. When the hunky new head of Horseshoe Falls security identifies Mia as the prime suspect, her anxiety level registers on the Richter scale.
Eager to clear her name, Mia moves into action to locate her missing buddy and find out who killed their friend. But her quick tongue gets her into trouble with more than the new head of security. When Mia begins receiving threats, the killer makes it clear that he's closer than she’d ever imagined.
This book was sent to me for a honest and fair review with Great Escapes Book Tours. This book follows Mia Connors who is a computer IT geek. She works at the Horseshoe Falls community doing IT work, but when the security system becomes a mess and countless residents get emails for free promotions, coupons, and all sorts of other things it's up to Mia to find out what is going on. To make matters worse some residents like the idea of online appointments, and when Mia's friend Baxter is found dead in her chair it up to Mia and the new head of security Jake Archer to get to the bottom of what is going on and who is behind it all. Can Mia figure it out before her time is up?
I loved this story so much it had adventure, mystery, humor, and family togetherness. I enjoyed reading about the Rene Fair as well seeing as how Mia is the head of her grandmother's company. It showed many sides of Mia. That and reading about her at Comic-Con. This book had it all. It was great to watch Mia and Jake stumble all over things to get down to the murderer. Definitely a great book for computer techs or people who enjoy reading about computer geeks.
