Disillusioned private investigator Mitch Peabody falls in love with his sexy new employer Mae Sullivan, who hires him to find a missing diary and the men responsible for her uncle's murder.

Harlequin


If he's Cary Grant, where's his Girl Friday?

Mitch Peabody was learning pretty fast that the life of a private detective was nothing like the movies. He'd envisioned a world of tough-talking detectives and smart-mouthed, stunning dames. Instead he saw case after case of cheating husbands, suspicious wives and unsuspecting mistresses…until she walked through the door.

Right down to her stilettos, Mae Sullivan was a knockout with a lethal body—and a lethal family to go with it. There was something not quite on the up-and-up about her, but she came with a case he couldn't afford to refuse…and left him with a case of lust he hadn't had since high school. It didn't take long for him to fall for her, hook, line and sinker. But was Mae interested only in catching the double-crossing crooks who murdered her uncle…or did the lady want to catch him?

Having read nearly all of Crusie’s other books before getting to this, I found it kind of a neat embryonic form of her later work. Here she’s trying out tropes and techniques that she brings to perfection in books like Tell Me Lies. Overall a quick and satisfying read, so long as you let yourself go with the seriously high-current flow. Also, it’s a fun glimpse back to the early 90s!
