Book Blurb:

When her ex-boyfriend’s body is found in the trunk of her car, Nikki Hunt quickly becomes a prime murder suspect. Fortunately, former-cop-turned-P.I. Dallas O’Connor knows what it’s like to be unjustly accused. The lead detective, Dallas’ own brother, has the wrong woman–and Dallas hopes a little late-night undercover work will help him prove it. Original.

My Thoughts:

When I first saw this cover my thoughts were this is a book about cowboys! But no actually is about an ex-cop who was convicted and went to jail for something he didn’t do it. After proving he and two friends, who he was framed with, decided to work investigating but from other angle and they opened a PI firm named “Don’t mess with Texas”. They are trying to do some good by helping people who get accused but are innocent and prove the man who framed them.

And that’s how he meet Nikki, who is being framed for murdering her ex-husband. I liked her, she’s actually very smart and start investigating who may want to kill her ex.

This was a fun book to read and some moments gave me a smile. I liked the investigating part, and best of all it doesn’t get in the middle of the romance.

The book is a bit long but the story was good from the begin so I was hooked from the first page and read the hole thing to discover who was the killer. Also the dog was amazing, so fun.
