Nina Quinn is the owner of Taken By Surprise, a landscaping business that specializes in surprise makeovers for your yard. Her business is booming, her love is practically non-existent, and dead bodies seem to be popping up like daisies.
Kevin Quinn is a homicide detective, and Nina’s almost ex-husband. With only a few more days until the divorce is final, he cannot help but feel that there is still something between them.
Nina is sure she is over Kevin; well maybe, sort of, kind of, sure. She knows that the feelings she has for Bobby MacKenna are real, but what if deep down she still loves Kevin? However, her love life, or lack thereof, is put on the backburner when a backyard makeover turns into a homicide investigation. She has been lied to, used, and now facing a possible lawsuit and manslaughter charges. Her nosy nature does not let her sit on the sidelines, and she is desperate to find the evidence to clear her name. Her head is spinning with all of the chaos surrounding her business as well as her impending divorce. She needs to make a decision concerning Bobby. It is just not fair to him or herself to keep waffling with her feelings. Kevin, Bobby, and dead bodies; could her life be anymore crazy? That would be a definite “YES”.
This one will have your head spinning in no time. The mystery and intrigue are perfectly balanced with Nina’s quirky humor and propensity for trouble. Heather Webber has an amazing aptitude for smart and witty dialogue. Her characters are fabulously funny, and her storyline is captivating enough to keep you guessing right up until the end. I cannot wait to read the next installment of Nina Quinn mysteries. They just keep getting better and better.
