Double Down - Victoria Pratt (a Cassidy Jones novel)

Have I mentioned before that I enjoy a good female sleuth? Cop, detective, PI, you name it, I'll like it. Double Down definitely surprised me this week; Victoria Pratt gave us a strong female character, put her in what could've been a demoralizing position, and wrote us an awesome story about a strong female cop, a serious crime to solve, and the attractive man she's got to keep her distance from. This is the kind of book I put things down for and wish the character was the star of a TV show. Lucky for you, this book just released this week and you can get your hands on it as an ebook right now.

Rating: 4.5 stars
Released: October 2015
Many thanks to Netgalley and Entangled Publishing for providing an ARC in exchange for my honest review.

I need more Cassidy Jones in my life!

Cassidy has been stuck doing the babysitting at the police station, she's taking care of kid's, dealing with clean up, and is the butt of every joke. She's tough though and when she's handed the job of going undercover to find a murder suspect, she uses it to her advantage. With the murderer on her mind, Cassidy starts her new undercover role, only to find herself working for the delicious Lorenzo, brother of the deceased. Focused on the task at hand, Cassidy gets herself into all sorts of trouble as she looks for all the clues she can.

I loved this book! Loved it! Cassidy Jones is a hilarious character with a lot of wit and charm. I enjoyed reading from her POV, especially when she was admiring Lorenzo. For such a serious subject, Cassidy sure makes it fun. She's got a great inner monologue running at all times and the character she interacts with bring this book to life. The crime story line grabbed my attention from the very start and the romance in this one really took a backseat. I liked that the crime was more important than shacking up with boss. From mobsters to strippers and good cops to bad cops, everything you could possibly want in a romantic suspense novel is in this book. There are some great twists, even towards the very end, and I am really looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
