"Pacy, funny and exciting. Cynical yet romantic at heart, Clarry is a girl that you can't help but like - and root for...." – Independent Reviewer

“He’d thought himself the hunter, that I was easy prey but what he hadn’t bargained for, was contending with a woman who hadn’t eaten a square meal in twenty-four hours. I get mean when I’m hungry.”

Clarry Pennhaligan, low on ambition but high on energy, can’t seem to come up with a proper grown-up plan to kick-start her life. Planning really isn’t her thing. But then she happens upon her true vocation: Snooping.  Discovering other people’s secrets and getting paid for it. What could possibly go wrong? Well……as it turns out, just about everything and soon Clarry finds herself in real danger.

The Love Detective is the first in a series due for release in September 2018. The second book will follow in late spring 2019.

Read a Steamy Excerpt Here:

Review: I love mysteries of any variety. It is probably one of my favorite genres these days. The Love Detective looked like a good book  I was expecting a cozy but found more of a thriller, which is just fine by me as well.

Clarry is a waitress who find herself becoming a bit of a PI for her friend who wants her to look into her boyfriend.

There are a lot of comparisons to Janet Evanovich here and I can sort of agree with them. Clarry has a bit of Stephanie Plum's wackiness and well weird luck.

This isn't all silly sleuthing either. There's some darker subject matter that pushes this story away from the Evanovich style as well as the cozy mystery style.

Its a great, fast paced read that will definitely appeal to mystery lovers

About the Author:

Angela Dyson ditched her London life and downsized her home to move to the sticks in Surrey, to follow her dream to become a professional author. She loves to write but to pay the bills (Angela soon discovered that utility companies, bank managers and landlords aren’t known for their generosity and understanding natures,) she had to squeeze the writing in with working for a living. Some of the jobs to which she only gave half her attention have included working for a recording studio and a record label, running a building maintenance company where pretty much the only upside was getting to boss a lot of men about all day, doing a bit of plus size modelling (strictly clothes on) and, for one memorable summer, making a living reading palms on a Greek Island.
