From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Gemma Halliday...
Her name is Bond. Jamie Bond. And she is licensed to kill any pre-nup you can throw at her.
Catching cheating husbands became Jamie Bond's life when her father was shot and wounded on the job, forcing Jamie to take over the family business: The Bond Agency. But three years later, the PI is shocked when the gun that wounded her father surfaces during a high-profile murder trial. Is this the connection Jamie's been waiting for to finally nail her father's shooter? But, oddly enough, Derek Bond doesn't seem interested. In fact, if Jamie didn't know better she'd say he's even trying to stop her from looking into it. Along with her team of bombshell investigators, Jamie suddenly finds herself in the middle of a cold case that's heating up the media, dodging old grudges and new enemies, while questioning the motives of those closest to her. If she can live with the truth, the secrets Jamie uncovers may bring down more than a marriage this time.

Here's what critics are saying about Gemma Halliday's books:
"A saucy combination of romance and suspense that is simply irresistible."
"Stylish... nonstop action...guaranteed to keep chick lit and mystery fans happy!"
—Publishers' Weekly, starred review
"Smart, funny and snappy… the perfect beach read!"
I am enjoying this series. The characters are refreshingly different than similar stories about female PI’s. The male interests are both intriguing and I am not sure who I want to win Jamie’s heart. I look forward to the next book.
I read the first book in the series, "Unbreakable Bond" & loved it. This one, the second book in the series was better than the first! They have the perfect combination of a little mystery, some excitement & romance too! Also, I truly did not expect the ending! I love that you can read one book in the series & still understand what's going on... Can't wait to read the next book!
Although I didn't read the first book in this series, it was easy to get into the swing of things with the main characters and their interactions. Jamie Bond has joined her father's detective agency, mostly working on proving or disproving cases of infidelity for concerned spouses. Her friend, ADA Aiden is currently prosecuting a murder case against a corrupt cop when his department finds evidence that the gun used in this case also was involved in the near fatal shooting of Jamie's father three years prior. Although her father refuses to talk about this, she starts her own investigation, looking for any and all possible links. The story also features some of her other ongoing investigations, including one they need to conduct at a nudist colony. The story is told at a good pace, keeping the reader involved, sometimes with humor, sometimes with emotion, with a nice twist at the end. Her relationships with Aidan and one of her friends and coworkers, Danny, is left to explore in future novels. Disclosure: I was provided with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
