Brandon's best friend is murdered and Brandon becomes the number one suspect. He goes to the Colby Agency for help. Most everyone has already left for Christmas but new investigator, Merri.

A quick, easy-read mystery from Harlequin. Interesting twists on the hidden vulnerabilities (which seem required in modern romances), but otherwise a pretty prosaic "too pretty to be believed" PI heroine and her hapless client/soon-to-be love interest.

Again, this appears part of a series whose earlier installments I haven't read. Set in Chicago, with private investigators...hmmm. I think I'll stick to Sara Paretsky.

This romantic suspense novella held a lot of intrigue and creative conflicts. An exciting read to find out how the accused and the investigator help one another and create romance.

This is more of a suspense rather then a romance. I did not see how the hero and heroine fell in love with each other.
