After getting back to Beaumont, Jamie hasn’t heard anything from Max. After the excitement of the last time together, being back home seems a little slow. Between keeping her newspaper running, and working together with the police after some strange deaths. When Max comes back, she’s not sure how she is supposed to react or even what he wants from her. Between the murderers and Max’s playboy lifestyle, Jamie isn’t sure what to think or how to act.
I got into this book a lot quicker than the last one. I love the characters in this series and everything around them. The quirky personalities and relationship between all of them. Max has got it bad for Jamie even from the end of the last book. Jamie and Max work perfectly together, and they are just the sweetest.
This time, the murders were partly linked to the newspaper so they are pulling out the big guns. The changes in the town are fun, especially with the brownies. The dynamic between Jamie and Max change in this book throughout the investigation. They have their ups and downs but it works well for them.
I enjoyed the new side to Vera that we see in this book. She’s more fun than she has been in the previous book. She is still the mother figure but she has a lot more fun throughout this book.
I really loved this book and I’m sad that Max and Jaime’s focused store line has come to an end.
