Double Shot

Currently Reading

Book Description:
Jessie Hewitt thought her pool-hustling days were long gone. But when uber-hunky cop Wilson Rye asks her to go undercover to catch a killer, she jumps at the chance to return to a sleazy poolroom. Jessie is confident she can handle a double homicide, but the doubly-annoying Wilson Rye is another matter altogether. What's he doing flirting with a woman half his age? Will Jessie have what it takes to deal with Tiffany La-Dee-Doo-Da Sass and solve the murders? Take a guess.

My Review: The second book in Cindy Blackburn's Cue Ball Mystery series is another fun jaunt with Jessie and her friends Candy and Karen as they work undercover at a pool hall called Wade on Inn to solve a pair of homicides. They end up tangled in the love lives of the eccentric patrons of the pool hall and soon realize everyone there had a motive to murder. The character that stole the show for me was Jessie's mother Tessie...her driving escapades had me in stitches! Jessie also has her hands full writing her latest historical romance (with the lovely Snowflake the cat as her constant companion) and dealing with her feelings of jealousy towards her beau Wilson's suspicious close working relationship with a co-worker. This is a fresh and fun series sure too appeal to all mystery lovers.

I received a copy of this book from the author with the request for a review.
