Bad karma, a rival suitor, and a deadly attack are enough to put a damper on any date.
Just when Adina’s social life is looking up, her night out is interrupted by the scream of police sirens. Afraid her bartender boyfriend might be accused of murder, Adina’s neighbor enlists her assistance, and in the process exposes her to the seamier side of illegal immigration and crime in the city. Hard as she tries to limit her involvement, the more Adina learns, the more she needs to know – until a case of mistaken identity lands her in hot water. Will she uncover the truth before it’s too late?
This is a second in a series and I enjoyed this as much as the first book. I also liked the discussion about immigration, not too much, just enough. and since it is set in DC, it wouldn’t be a book without discussing politics and even brief mentions (generically) of the upcoming election.
Adina is a caring person, especially when she helps her Russian neighbor’s boyfriend who was attacked behind the restaurant where they work. It is quite interesting how they uncover who is behind the crimes and help the police take them down. The mystery is not complicated, but isn’t easy to figure out either. Enough twists to keep me guessing.
Adina has a couple of love interests, Bruce (volunteers at the animal shelter with her) and Jack (the police detective). Luckily it is an easy decision for Adina on who to keep and who to dump!
We give this 5 paws up.
