Book Blurb:

An eternal bachelor convinced he’s finally found ‘the one’ vs. a woman scarred by her past. It’s gonna get messy… I came back to Wisconsin seeking peace. The PI firm You Cheat, We Eat was not the place to find it. Not when the owner’s uncle takes one look at me and knows I’m hiding a big, fat secret. Wally can keep looking. I’m not divulging my past to anyone. But when it turns out I have a stalker, Wally will do everything in his power to help me and keep me safe. He just needs me to reveal my entire ugly past first. It’s not that simple. I can’t divulge my secrets. Seriously. I will be in big trouble – the kind where you end up in jail – if I open my mouth. But it turns out Wally has secrets of his own. Secrets that can help him learn all about my past. Wally claims he’ll take care of my stalker and then I’ll see how Love will OUT. Oh boy. This seasoned romantic comedy features a woman who’s been burned by her past – literally – there were flames and everything, an eternal bachelor ready to give up his bachelor ways who will pull out all the stops to make sure his Angel stays safe, a group of friends who will do just about anything to find out what in the world is going on since someone’s not telling, and a makeshift family of former Army buddies who can not only tell dirty jokes but still have skills.

My Review:

This book is a simple must-read for fans of this series. Here, Chrissie and Wally get their own story, and fans who love this series will be desperate to read this book. Chrissie is an incredible female lead character. There are few strong and confident women who can stand on their own in literature. Such a powerful female lead could be inspiring to younger women.

There were many times in the book this reader simply cheered when Chrissie took command of a situation that typically requires a man. My issue with this book is with Wally. One would think reading how he treats this powerful woman that this book is set in 1821, not 2021. The caveman thing may work for some but personally, it offends me to the core. Fred Flintstone and Ralph Kramden shouldn't be guidelines for romantic leads. Many was the time I would have preferred Chrissie use her 9mm to answer Wally.

Another book that will fulfill the needs of fans for this series. If you are a fan of Neanderthal men as your ideal man, then this book is for you. Excellent spy action in this novel that will be enjoyed by fans of that aspect.

My Rating: 4.5 stars
