5 out of 5 smirks
Synopsis: "Recently divorced kindergarten teacher Jazz Shepherd is starting a new life in the quaint lakeside town of Bluegill. After taking a summer job at the local marina to help make ends meet, she's stunned when the chief of police enlists her help in solving a crime.
Money has been disappearing from the city coffers, and a trail leads from Bluegill's mayor to Damien Cerberus, a rich boat owner and possible killer. The police chief is short-staffed and in need of someone to keep tabs on the suspect. Jazz's job at the marina puts her in the perfect position to help and puts her in the path of Kurt Reynolds, the hottie who mans the fireboat.
When things with Kurt start heating up, how can Jazz keep her investigation undercover while enjoying time under the covers with her summer flame?"
Her Lucky Catch by Amie Denman is a hilarious story about marching to the beat of your own drum. I found myself helplessly devoted to finishing this book because the main character, Jazz, is so quirky and funny as a reader I could easily relate to her. Jazz has this way about her, how she says and does things reminds me of a lot of people who don't want to admit they think the things they do, but they do anyways. I love how her inter-conversations go with herself and how she plans to seduce Kurt, but then decides not to; it was hilarious. Kurt being the sexy hunk he is, is a mystery to readers until almost the very end of the book, but I think that's what makes this book and characters so unique. We as readers are held in suspense rooting for Jazz to figure out the town of Bluegill and at the same time trying to figure out the elusive Kurt Reynolds. I give Her Lucky Catch by Amie Denman 5 smirks because the characters are fun/funny, the story is unique, and it is easy to fall in love with a book like this.
