Knockout (A Holly Hands Mystery—Book 1)
Fans of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum and Jana DeLeon's Miss Fortune will find a new character to love in Holly Hands!
Holly Hands. 29. Single mom. Disgraced, former boxing pro. Repo woman.
Repossessing Lamborghinis and other exotic toys from criminals is second-hat for Holly.
But finding a dead body—and solving a murder—is not.
Luckily, Holly has Lucky by her side—a neglected pit bull she found on the wrong side of a job, who refuses to leave her side—and who, like her, has nowhere to go but up.
Together, maybe they can crawl their way out of the urban hell of their bad slice of Baltimore, where coming home at night is even more dangerous than going to work. Maybe Holly can manage to get her young daughter the medical treatment she desperately needs, and manage to get her out of her dangerous public school and into the private school of her dreams. Just maybe, she can fall in love with that private school Dad from the other side of town and start a whole new life.
Or maybe not.
Life has never been easy for Holly. And if the past few days—and the dead body in her trunk—are any indication—it’s about to get a whole lot worse.
KNOCKOUT (A HOLLY HANDS MYSTERY) is book #1 in a riveting new mystery series, a page-turning thriller that grabs you from page one and does not let go. Get ready to find yourself reading all night, bleary-eyed, and falling madly in love with a new character who will fight her way into your heart.
Book #2 (SUCKER PUNCH) and Book #3 (BELOW THE BELT) in the series are also available.
Slow to Get Going
I was rooting for this book. Felt for the character but just couldn’t get past Chapter 15. Too slow to get going.
Makes me want to beat the crap out of a sleaze ball. I really enjoyed this authors story. Gonna get more of her series.
Fun read. Very entertaining😊
