Bolero by Joanie McDonell
Bolero (A Nick Sayler Novel) - Joanie McDonell

Ok so I picked this one up because it was on one of those annoying advertisements that Kindle puts on when you put it in sleep mode. I read the blurb on it and decided to give it a try. Well it didn't disappoint.

Quick setting: The hero, Nick Sayler, is a Private Detective with a checkered past who is still dealing with the loss of his girlfriend. He gets a phone call in the middle of the night from a ER doctor saying there was a woman found beaten and can't remember anything, and the only thing on her was his business card. He doesn't want to help but when he sees her he is compelled by her beauty and the fact that she has the same violet colored eyes as his deceased girlfriend. Now he can't stop helping her.

This really was a good "who done it" book. I couldn't figure out who the killer was until it was revealed in the end, even though during their investigation Nick mentions them as a suspect.

My only issue is that the author tried to make some of the scenes more exciting but by doing so she left out details that would have been obvious. Such as one scene: The pet dog get wounded and they call the vet, the vet has a similar car to the killer, when the vet gets to the house the girl runs to the car and jumps in ready to go. The author doesn't mention that the girl should have the dog in her arms, and if she didn't have the dog why's she getting into the car with the vet when the dogs in the house? So the author leads us to believe that the girl is getting into the car with the the killer, and that wasn't the case.

Other then that I really enjoyed it and will be eagerly awaiting book number 2
