C.D. Ledbetter’s latest novel JINGLE OF COINS is a really clever romantic suspense that borders on “noir” pulp-fiction.

Emily Sane’s special effects career is about to take off when a devastating car wreck leaves her out of work and unable to tolerate loud noises. The damage does have one favorable outcome; Emily’s reaction to sound allows her to detect changes in pitch of slot machines. As Emily tries for the big payoff, she must deal with Glen, a gorgeous hot blackmailer, a high price call girl neighbor, inept Secret Service agents, and ugly crime bosses.

It is to Ms Ledbetter’s credit that she can keep the many characters and numerous sub- plots fresh, unpredictable, and quick. JINGLE OF COINS is definitely more suspense than romance, but is wildly entertaining. This is a great book for curling up on a quiet evening with a good cup of coffee. A mystery with the right amount romance and sneaky characters that was a fun read, and one you will recommend to your friends.
