I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are 100% my own.
Firecracker P.I. Fina Ludlow returns in the next hard-driving entry in the acclaimed series by Ingrid Thoft.
It’s been a couple months since Fina’s last big case—the one that exposed dark family secrets and called Fina’s family loyalty into question—but there’s no rest for the weary, especially when your boss is Carl Ludlow.
Renata Sanchez, a single mother by choice, wants to learn the identity of her daughter Rosie’s sperm donor. A confidentiality agreement and Rosie’s reticence might deter other mothers, but not Renata, nor Carl, who’s convinced that lawsuits involving cryobanks and sperm donors will be “the next big thing.” Fina uncovers the donor’s identity, but the solution to that mystery is just the beginning: within hours of the case going public, Rosie’s donor turns up dead.
Fina didn’t sign on for a murder investigation, but she can’t walk away from a death she may have set in motion. She digs deeper and discovers that DNA doesn’t tell the whole story and sometimes, cracking that code can have deadly consequences.
My Review: 4 out of 5 stars. Loved this sequel to Thoft’s first book, Loyalty (which you can check out my review here). There were a few parts that I thought could’ve been hashed out a bit more, but overall I was impressed with this 2nd book. I love how Thoft runs 2 stories simultaneously within her books. It seems to keep me more entertained because I’m curious of 2 endings rather than just the one ending (she did that in Loyalty as well). I look forward to many more books from Ingrid Thoft!! Especially in this series!!
Look for this to be released at the end of June (around June 26, 2014).
