Swift Justice (A Charlie Swift Mystery #1)
Charlotte “Charlie” Swift prefers working alone. That’s why after eight years as an Air Force investigator she became a PI rather than a cop. She lives alone, she works alone, and aside for the occasional flirtation with sexy cop Connor Montgomery or her hunky neighbor Father Dan, she likes it that way. Then her silent partner flees the country, leaving his wife, Gigi, w

Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books...
1 star... This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end. I will avoid this author like the plague in the future.
2 stars... This book was not very good, and I won't be reading any more from the author.
3 stars... This book was ok, but I won't go out of my way to read more, But if I find another book by the author for under a dollar I'd pick it up.

These are notes I made halfway through the book;
Can't say I care much for the main character here, Charlie. She's just bland and unlikable, in fact that seems to be an accurate description of this book, so far. I'll hang in there though, on the hope that Gigi will provide some good entertainment further on. At least she has a good attitude and interesting personality.
As I go further into this book, the less I like Charli ...more

I admit I would have agreed with Charlie on Gigi's choices for decorating the office, and I would most likely be just as annoyed as she was when Gigi tried to completely change the office. Yet Gigi proved that she can be tough enough to do the job, she is loyal and determined to make things work for her and her children (no matter how ung ...more

Read my full review at Carstairs Considers.
Well written with enough twists to keep the plot entertaining, this was an easy breezy mystery perfect for summer reading.
Recommended to someone looking for a light mystery. I will definitely read more by the author, including the continuation of this series.
Charlotte (Charlie) Swift is a PI. She is hired to find the father of a newborn baby whose mother has been murdered. Set in Colorado Springs and its environs, Swift presents is with lots of interesting characters that I'm sure will be regulars in the series.
I am looking forward to reading #2 in this series.
Together, they create a unique agency. The story line is excellent, with well-developed characters and a full plot.
After twenty years as an Air Force intelligence officer – serving as a squadron commander, with the National Reconnaissance Office, and at a fighter wing – I retired to parenting and writing full-time.
Spying was easier.
