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.”
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.
