This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Tired of getting no respect at the big P.I. firm where she’s worked for years, Dix Dodd has hung out her own shingle at the ripe age of 40. There are plenty of cheating husbands to go around, and Dix has a knack for busting them. Problem is, it doesn’t always pay so well. Conscious that the guys back at the old firm are laying bets about how soon she’ll come crawling back, she figures she’s got six months to make a go of it. The going gets even tougher when she hires Dylan Foreman. But when he told her about getting fired from his law firm and disbarred for putting common decency before the firm’s interests, she hired him on the spot. In addition to being smart, he’s gorgeous enough to remind her she’s a woman. And at 28, young enough to make her feel like a total cougar. Things start looking up when Dix gets hired by millionaire businessman Ned Weatherby’s wife Jennifer Weatherby, to tail Ned 24/7 for a week, for a cool ten grand. Easy-peasy, right? Wrong! The job lands Dix in the middle of a murder investigation – with her as the prime suspect and her arch-enemy Detective Richard Head (a.k.a., D******d, one of the cheating husbands she’d nailed) gunning for her. Dix will need all her ingenuity, as well as the help of Dylan and her oddball cast of supporters to extricate herself from this one.
This is a cute story with some laugh out loud lines. It may not be great literature, but it is a fun read.
Laughter's the best medicine
I'm a Norah Roberts fan anyway so of course I had to give this novella a quick read when I saw it was free on iBooks. This is the first book I have read in the Dix Dodd series and now... Well, now, I'm after the others in the series of course... I literally laughed out loud several times while reading this ebook. I absolutely love the characters. Especially Detective Richard "Dick" Head. His name alone caused me to smile. The relationship between Dix and Dylan is great fun. Would not even change a thing about Mrs P's character.
The case of the flashing fashion queen
Dix Dodd is fun and funny! Keeps me reading for more wit.
