After all that online buzz, they’re in phenomenal demand. Can Hobs

Hobson and Choi are back. Choi is starting her second week of work experience, Hobson has moved business premises and together they cause a stink!

Hobson tries to do the best thing after facing the darker self of his past. He wants to put his past behind him whilst saving someone from almost certain death. Along the way he and Choi's working relationship gets stronger and they see different sides to each other personalities.

Parts of this book are dark, but equally there are parts with the same hu

I have to say straight away that I absolutely adored this. I liked the first book quite a bit, but this second volume really stepped up a notch. Hobson & Choi shows its origins as a serialised work with a number of smaller cases interweaving as the story goes, which was where it really hooked me.

As I’ve said above, I don’t read a lot of crime fiction, but I do watch a lot of US-style police procedurals, with a general season arc and a case solved every episode, excepting the occasional two-parte

The second book in the Hobson and Choi series starts off right where the 1st one left off with it being the second week of work experience for intern Choi who wants to prove herself to Hobson and Hobson moving his detective premises and being in popular demand following cracking the wolf case! I again, like the first, LOVED, this book. A superb sequel! I cannot believe I have never read these books before now! Shame on me! Again a gr
Rush Jobs follows on from The Girl Who Tweeted Wolf. Choi is in her second week of interning and has no idea how to say to Hobson that she'd like to stay but on the other hand it does look like she might have an actual date with Will the receptionist. Hobson has burnt his bridges with Ellie, his ex-wife and is floundering a bit. Instead of one case our dynamic duo take on several, including a kidnapping involving an accountant and a shady recruitment agency, a drug mule dog who might just be the ...more

This second book in the Hobson and Choi series really steps it up a notch to great effect. I loved the first one's humour and how it shows the relationship between the two totally mis-matched partners develop. However, in this book the stakes get raised and we close in on a much nastier threat. Not only that, but we start to see how Hobson's past weaves into this threat and understand he's been to some pretty nasty places in his time. At the same time we see Choi grow in confidence and Hobson st ...more

Rush Jobs is a direct follow on in the story of Hobson and Choi. We are now into the second week of Choi's work experience with Hobson, and they take on a series of smaller cases that are inter-related to each other and partly to the previous book.

Although this was a nice continuation, the nature of some of the cases and the descriptions that were written, really left a bad taste in my mouth.

I'm also not sure how much I like the development of Hobson's character. He seems to have been involved i

I love the characters Hobson and Choi, they're a fantastic duo that really make these books! There are a jumble of cases in this book as the title 'Rush Jobs' suggests. I found that I wanted to read more of this series and so I hope it turns into a lot of books! Thank you so much for the opportunity to read and review these books, and the best of luck with the blog tour, Nick Bryan and Faye Rogers!

This is a really good read, entertaining, clever and at times hilarious. It has great characters and it fast paced and interesting. I discuss it in more detail on my website here:

I love this series. A believable relationship between a teenage intern and a shady private investigator. The best balance of humor and grit that I've read in a long time.
