Teaser


Izzy looked up sharply. “Everything is boring with you lately, Jack. Is everything okay?”

Jack raised one shoulder and scrunched his nose. “I’m just restless.”

“Ahh,” Izzy nodded in understanding. “You need to get laid.”


 

My Opinion

This book focuses on Jack, restless due to his upcoming birthday, no current lover, and inexplicably decreasing business profit.

With Jack Gets His Man, D. E. Haggerty has created an expertly worded and pretty funny suspense story with a romantic touch. The story comprises a broad variety of characters with sufficient depth, hilarious moments and interesting interactions to solve the case of the vanishing finances. I had a great time reading Jack Gets His Man – it is a very fun read. I was drawn into the story right away, chuckling about the cute gray-haired knitting detectives and their ways, seconding Izzy’s thoughts, trying to find the culprit and hoping that Jack really gets his man. This is for you if you like female sleuths, hilarious situations as well as a great combination of (cozy) suspense, humour and romance.

A funny and suspenseful book to read again.

Recommended.

In brief:

Writing Great
Plot Some twists
Mood Suspenseful, light-hearted
Pace Steady

About the author

I was born and raised in Wisconsin, but think I’m a European. After spending my senior year of high school in Germany, I developed a bad case of wanderlust that is yet to be cured. My flying Dutch husband and I have lived in Ohio, Virginia, the Netherlands, Germany and now Istanbul. We still haven’t decided if we want to settle down somewhere – let alone where. I’m leaning towards somewhere I can learn to surf even though the hubby thinks that’s a less than sound way to decide where to live. Although I’ve been a military policewoman, a commercial lawyer, and a B&B owner, I think with writing I may have finally figured out what I want to be when I grow up. That’s assuming I ever grow up, of course. Between playing tennis, running much slower than I would like, trying to adopt every stray dog within a 5-mile radius, traveling to exotic new locales, singing off tune, drinking entirely too many adult beverages, addictively watching new movies and reading books like they are going out of style, I write articles for a local expat magazine and various websites, review other indie authors’ books, write a blog about whatever comes to mind and am working on my sixth book.
