Armed with cool sarcasm and uncontrollable hair, feisty insurance investigator Amber Fox is back in a new mystery combining murder and mayhem with romance and chicklit…
Three deaths. A safety deposit box robbery. The boxing heavyweight champion of the world. Somehow, they’re all related, and Amber has to solve a four year old crime to find out why.
As she stumbles across a trail of dead bodies and a web of lies spanning both sides of the social divide, it’s starting to get personal. Someone thinks Amber’s poking her nose in where it’s not wanted, sparking off a game of fox and mouse—only this time, Amber’s the mouse. Amber’s forced to take refuge in the home of her ex-fiancé, Brad Beckett, and now it’s not just the case that’s hotting up. So is the bedroom…
All Levi Carter wanted to be was the boxing heavyweight champion of the world, but at what cost? All Carl Thomas wanted was to be rich, but would his greed be his downfall? All Brad Beckett wants is to get Amber back, but there’s a reason for the ex word.
Be careful what you wish for… you might just get it.
Amber Fox wins this book, but just because the plot is absolutely wonderful and the main character can develop beautifully in it. Be Careful What You Wish For is the second Amber Fox book, and I didn’t read the first one—to tell you the truth, I didn’t know about it existence until I went to Amazon to get the book details. The book can be read as an stand-alone novel without a problem, and I think the merit goes to the wonderful construction the author’s made.
I’ve never had read a mystery chick-lit before. Yes, I read lots of mystery and my quota of chick-lit, but never the two of them combined. Now, I think I will give the others Sibel Hodge’s books a try!
The story starts with Amber, an ex-cop who works as an investigator for her ex-fiancée, Brad, being assigned to investigate a boxing match. The boxing soon turns out to be a secondary thing when the investigation leads to murders and a world more of problems.
In the middle of the storm, Amber is divided between Brad, her boss and ex-fiancée, and her new boyfriend—or new ex-boyfriend—Romeo. She is a hilarious individual and leads the story with grace. She doesn’t annoy me as the majority of chick-lit main characters do, and I cracked up all the time to her sense of humor.
Do I recommend this book? Without a doubt. But the cover could definitely get a makeover to turn it in a more commercial book, in my opinion.
