While Nicki Valentine has figured out the single mom routine fairly well, she's still learning the ropes of working as a PI. Plus she has a crush on her instructor Dean Summers, who has returned after a year in Europe. Nicki invites him as her "plus-one" to her friend Mia's wedding. But, when Bruce, the groom, is a no-show, Nicki and Dean are hired by Bruce's father to find out what is going on—and it's pretty sinister.
VERDICT This breezy second outing (after the Agatha Award-nominated Finding Sky) features an enchanting amateur sleuth with dear friends and family who have her back at all times. If only she can make this PI business work and keep her relationship with Dean on an even keel, her life will be perfect.
