Skin and Blond

Book 1, Blond Noir

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Dark. Raw. Gritty. Blond.
from USA Today bestselling author V. J. Chambers

Ever since blond detective Ivy Stern got herself kicked off the police force for “sexual conduct unbecoming an officer,” she’s been slumming it as a private investigator. But she’s handling the fact her life is in shambles just fine, thank you very much. She manages to get up to open her office by the crack of noon every day, no matter how hungover she is or whose bed she woke up in.

When Miles Pike, head of homicide and her it's-complicated-ex-boyfriend, refers a distraught man to her, Ivy’s ready to get cracking. Her new client is frustrated that the police are treating what he thinks is clearly his sister’s murder as a run-of-the-mill missing persons case.

Well, Ivy’s good with murder. Real good. And this case has her intrigued. There’s no evidence that the victim has been killed, but she’s gone, leaving everything behind from her cell phone to her credit cards. Everything except her bed sheets.

Skin And Blond

Loved the book. A lot of twists n turns and I really didn’t figure it out. Couldn’t put the book now till I finished it tonite. Thank you!

Blonde noir book 1

This was an awesome first book in the series. I completely disagree with one of the other reviewers; the sex makes the story. It's an integral part of it because of the protagonist and what she struggles with. So, if you're uptight about sex, it won't appeal to you, but if you're open minded about struggles that people face in the 21st century, you'll find this book appealing.
It had a great deal less of spelling and grammar errors than many of the other free books I've read, and I'm impressed.

Interesting Read

I really enjoyed this book. Couldn't stop reading. Check it out for yourself!!!
