When it rains, it pours … and this amateur sleuth may be in over her head.
Graduate student Raina Sun is trying to keep her head above water as the bills roll in when her dashing college adviser cons her out of several months of rent. Her quest to retrieve the money sets in motion a streak of even worse luck.
First, she stumbles on her advisor's dead body and becomes a suspect in his murder. Next, the only man she's ever loved reappears as the lead detective to the case. Raina's having trouble interpreting his signals--does he want to reignite their passion, or just stay close to his prime suspect?
Her life careens further out of control when her grandma shows up at Raina's postage-stamp-sized apartment, dragging a red suitcase and trouble of her own. As Raina summons her sleuthing skills, she discovers that when it comes to murder, there may be no place for an amateur.

Raining Men and corpses
Full of more twists than untangeling curley hair. Think Murder She Wrote meets Stephanie Plum's bad luck for getting into trouble. Sex without details and blody violence are off screen, but talked about. Good beginning to a series, but readers may want to take notes to follow all the action.
Good, clean language, no explicit sex and still good.Just sayin’. One thing I did not like was the configuration of some of the paragraphs that had me confused as to who was saying what. I read at least one book a week so I do not think it was me. That was bothersome but I still enjoyed the story and the characters.
