An all-new, spicy murder mystery from Tessa Bailey, #1 New York Times bestselling author of It Happened One Summer...
It was supposed to be a relaxing vacation in sweet, sunny Cape Cod—just me and my beloved brother—but discovering a corpse in our rental house really throws a wrench into our tanning schedule. Now a rude, crude bounty hunter has arrived on the back of his motorcycle to catch the killer and refuses to believe I can be helpful, despite countless hours of true crime podcast listening. Not to mention a fulfilling teaching career of wrangling second graders.
A brash bounty hunter and an energetic elementary schoolteacher: the murder-solving team no one asked for, but thanks to these pesky attempts on my life, we're stuck together, come hell or high tide.
I'm just here to do a job, not babysit an amateur sleuth. Although…it is becoming less and less of a hardship to have her around. Sure, she's stubborn, distracting and can't stay out of harm's way. She's also brave and beautiful and reminds me of the home I left behind three years ago. In other words, the painful hunger and protectiveness she is waking up in me is a threat to my peace of mind. Before I sink any deeper into this dangerous attraction, I need to solve this murder and get back on the road. But will fate take her from me before I realize the road has been leading to her all along?
Silly romcom murder mystery
I laughed a lot with this book and the murder mystery was pretty fun, but the romance side was just a bit cringey to me. 😂 truthfully, a 3.5 star rating would be more accurate if i had that ability. I wouldn’t steer people away from reading this, but it’s not my favorite Tessa Bailey book either.
A great story!
I absolutely loved reading this rom com!! Taylor and Mikes were such interesting characters and I enjoyed the two points of view throughout the book. I thought the murder plot was going to be cheesy, but Tessa did an excellent job tying in thriller/m and mystery into this romance novel. Loved it just as much as It Happened One Summer! Another great summer read!
Tessa knocks it out of the park EVERY. SINGLE. TIME! Loved this couple so much!
