Nell’s Book Hunt
Nell says…..I would like to disclaimer these two suggestions – I bought both to see if I like them, but the inconsistancy bothers me. The first suggestion has two different titles and the name of the female protagonist is different. The second suggestion has not had a sequel since it was published in 2013. That’s vexing. On both counts.
Mia (or Nuala) Kazmaroff has a gift nobody wants. She’s able to tell the story behind any object simply by touch. It’s a gift that comes in handy when her only brother, a detective with the Atlanta Major Crimes Division, is murdered. Determined to find his killer, Mia (or Nuala) reaches out to the one person in Atlanta she believes can help her—Dave’s ex-partner, Jack Burton.Unfortunately, Burton is also the prime suspect.
Together, Mia (or Nuala) and Jack create a partnership that breaks all the rules, skirts every law, and lobs as many sparks and landmines at each other as if they were adversaries–which half the time they are—all while attempting to ignore their undeniable mutual attraction.
Can two people so different—one intuitive and inexperienced, the other cynical and by-the-book—work together to solve the murder?
And can they do it before the killer turns his attention to Mia (or Nuala)?
