9780373698479In The Detective by Adrienne Giordano, Brody Hayward, a homicide detective, recovers from an elbow injury he agrees to help his private detective sister look at a two year old murder case. While he only plans to give it a cursory look the same is not the case for the interior designer he encounters in the course of his investigation.

Lexi Vanderbilt proves to be more of a distraction than Brody anticipated and as the case starts to unravel Lexi’s involvement in the case lead her and Brody into a convoluted web of intrigue and a twist that even I did not expect.

Once again Adrienne provides the reader with characters whose cryptic comments and quick wit lead the reader on an enjoyable journey into the mystery and power struggles of the movers and shakers in the world of high finance.

While Brody and Lexi seem as if they are an unlikely match, the romance that develops between them becomes believable when you catch a glimpse into their thoughts and feelings.

Adrienne has once again created a fun, romantic intrigue that will keep you engaged and glad you picked up this book to escape into for a few hours.

She’s captured his heart…and the attention of a murderer.

Injured homicide detective Brodey Hayward needs a distraction, and he finds it as a consultant on a cold case murder.

Despite her distrust of men, Brodey charms the alluring interior designer into helping him examine the case facts.
