This review is based on an ARC provided by the author and /or publisher via Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest opinion.

I was charmed by this book from first page. This author needs a new editor. She also needs to check the flow of the pages, because fixed right this book would TOTALLY be a 5*. We are talking really flippin adorable, but scenes changed without warning and people disappeared that left a reader confused. Confused readers don't give 5*s LOL. And that is seriously a shame b

"Discovering April" readers asked me for more -- here it is. Although, April is not a main character in this novel, she does make an appearance. This book takes place two years after "Discovering April."

This novel centers around the mysterious Officer Smith from Discovering April. I just felt like there was more to his story. Find out all about this handsome officer in Uncovering Officer Smith.

For all of you who have read Discovering April and craved more of this mysterious cop, nows your chance to get your fill.

This book moved along at a perfect pace for reading, not to fast nor to slow. The story will grab you and not let go until the very last page is read and you will have no choice but to fall in love with these characters. I was hooked on this story from the moment that I read the first words. There is no doubt that this book needs to be on your TBR list.

This book has Officer John Smith from Finding April. I loved Finding April, and Uncovering Officer Smith was fantastic. This installment is edgier, sexier, and less life and death situations. I loved Sheena's writing. This book is a must read! Five glittery stars! ...more

Uncovering Officer Smith is everything I could have ever asked for and so much more. I am really blown away with the direction the series took and I am beyond happy with the result. After I read book #1 Discovering April, I was so head over heals in love the with characters and Ms Hutchinson. I was one of the, I can only imagine TONS, fans that begged for more.

This was the first book I've read, by Sheena Hutchinson. I was attracted to the book, both y the enticing cover and the excellent blurb. I liked that it was set to be a ver thrilling read, but with a good bit of unexpected love. I was supposed to find it also had a splash of humour. This was done just right, as it made the mains a bit snarky, but didn't overdo it and ruin the thriller aspect.

The snark, I felt really matched the blurb. It gave off the unwanted attraction and love sense. You real

By day a cop, by night a bouncer, John Smith works hard but also plays hard – at least in bed. 1 night stands are his default. Brunettes preferred.

Until he encounters a Blonde.

A Blonde who brings out his protective instincts and changes his mind about what colour hair he prefers.

And he has some disappearances – potentially murders – to solve too.

Ok. So far so good.

Now I have a question I must ask all Americans. Why do American men wear white t-shirts under their ordinary shorts? Is it a vest in

Can you like a story but don't really like the characters? I didn't get him at all. He has been crushed by April in the first book? In the first book he only talked to her like three times. Weird!! I think they make the worst couple. I think even throughout all this he will leave her again because he is weird. And her, she goes through all that with him and what he did to her and at the end it's all forgiven? She had to see a shrink. They where like oil and water together. If he leaves

When I first started reading Uncovering Officer Smith, my first thought was "oh no, not another boring mystery/thriller" However, I assure you that was not the case in this book. Sheena Hutchinson brought romance, laughter and lots of heartache. I loved reading the characters, I think Smith was well executed. Becca was stubborn but so was John. I think out of them all John was my favorite character. I loved Becca's brother, Bedford as well and wouldnt mind reading his story. I felt like there we ...more

This is my first book by Sheena Hutchinson and I can honestly say that it won't be my last. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The storyline is one that will grab you and not let go. The characters are ones that will make you want to smack them but at the same time you will love them. You will feel invested in these characters and what they are going through and you heart will go to your throat. My chest was literally aching while reading this book.

Loved this story! It is one of those books that doesn't have any highs or lows, you are immediately drawn into the story and the words keep their hold on you until the very end. John Smith is hot and keeps his relationships to one night only and oh yeah, NO BLONDES, all because of one blonde who left his heart in pieces. This plan has been working for him just fine until Becca crosses his path. She is a lot of things and number one on that list is blonde, so John instantly puts her on the no hit ...more

Uncovering Officer Smith - Sheena Hutchinson The Discovering Trilogy Book 2 - 4 Stars
This is book 2 in the Discovering Trilogy and can absolutely be read as a standalone. It’s classified as a New Adult – Coming of Age Story and that it truly is. We get to watch Becca grow.
We first met Officer John Smith in Discovering April. He was a minor character in the book but there was this weird connection that I felt as a reader to him. Discovering April was not my favorite book so I’m glad I stuck with

At first I was skeptical of this book not really sure if I wanted to read it... not sure why but something about it caught my eye, kept running into it per say...so I clicked that purchase button with out reading the short description and was sucked right into it.

I was very wary about it but I’m glad I read it, it hit close to home and it made me want to reach out for Becca. Be there for her.

Uncovering Officer Smith is my first book by Sheena Hutchinson, and probably my last. This story is well-written, but it is written in first person, alternating point of view format, wich I hate. The characters were a little bland, except for sidekick Meggie, Meggie's personality shined. This story is about Becca, a 4.0 gpa collage student and John, a cop that moonlights as a bouncer. There's lots of drugs, drinking, sex and over the top angst in this story. Maybe I'm too old for this book, I ha ...more

I adore this story, Becca and John had my heart broken with their story. The struggles they go through and the friends and family they bring had me enraptured. Meggie is a force to be reckoned with, I love her. The friendship between Meggie and Becca is so cute, and I love the banter between the two of them. This is a great story and I knew reading discovering April I would love John Smith and I love the look at old characters we get. Sheena Hutchinson has done it again with

John Smith has had his heart broken by a leggy blonde and has sworn off women because of it. Enter Becca Swanson, a nerdy conservative girl whose life plan is to study law and take on the world. Their two paths cross and suddenly John isn’t so sure he should stay away from women any longer. This sequel to Discovering April is mysterious and romantic and completely satisfying.

Uncovering Officer Smith was a simple entertaining read that I could not put down. I read it in just a few hours because I was so riveted by it. I felt that it set out to be a simply well done romance story, but somewhere along the way it transformed into a suspenseful story about two people and their hesitations. These are two strong people, stuck so much in their heads and what they think they want in life so when realization hits them, I just laughed. It’s always fun to watch people, or chara ...more

Uncovering Officer Smith is the second book in the Discovering Trilogy by Sheena Hutchinson. You could get away with reading this as a standalone but I would recommend reading the first book Discovering April first as the main characters in this book, Officer John Smith, is first introduced in that story. I have read book 1 and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this second book – I really liked Officer Smith in the first story so was very excited that he was getting his own book! I

Becca is sure she doesn't want to get involved with John because she knows his type - the playboy ...more

“Life has a funny way of working out.”

This could be the opening lines to a crap ton of trouble if you read it with enough sarcasm. Or it could be the words of wisdom shared with us by author Sheena Hutchinson. (Just in case you’re not sure, it’s from Hutchinson!) Hutchinson introduced us to Officer John Smith (Hutchinson: smart and funny!) in her book called Discovering April. Officer Smith fell for April but did not get the girl. (See how life has a funny way of working out?) Even though I did
