APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
From the very first page of Let Us Prey, we fell in love with Mimi Capurro, the funny and feisty owner of Gotcha Detective Agency (and ex-Secret Service agent). What’s meant to be a routine bodyguard job leads Mimi to both a dead body and an old boyfriend, and puts her in a killer’s path. With its strong female protagonist, sizzling romance and refreshing cast of quirky, compelling characters, Jamie Lee Scott’s series is easy to read and full of laughs and perfect for fans of Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum books.
Easy to read and fast paced. I received Prey through Voracious readers and recommend it to anyone who loves a fast paced detective novel
