"A well written and memorable book"
Heidi Ellis refuses to believe that her best friend
Dana Turner killed her sister and she plans to prove it
even as her pal sits in prison. Heidi has no idea how one
becomes a detective as this is no novel where a civilian
becomes an amateur sleuth. However, she thinks she may
have found the solution when San Diego homicide detective,
Gideon Poletti provides an adult education class in
criminology that she quickly joins.
Though Heidi finds herself very attracted to the cop,
she refuses to think of romance while Dana remains behind
bars. However, she manages to gain more than just his
teaching techniques as Gideon wants her and sees this
investigation as the only way to get closer to Heidi. Even
with his son objecting and his ex-wife interfering, Gideon
cooperates with Heidi by investigating the case. His work
and her interference and prodding lead the duo to find
giant holes in the conviction of Dana, but will it be
enough to free her?
This reviewer has been a fan of Rebecca Winters forever
and her latest tale, MY PRIVATE DETECTIVE, confirms how
good this author is. The exhilarating story line uses
elements normally found in a police procedural-amateur
sleuth tale to intensify the romance without skimping on
the strong mystery. The lead couple is an engaging duo
while the support cast adds enough depth that the audience
will finish this book in one sitting.
