DNF at page 293.

Okay, I think my love of TV police procedurals does not carry over into the written word. This was taking me so long to get through and I just wasn't interested. I was reading it for a 2017 challenge, but there are other books on my TBR that can fill the same spot.

I loved this sassy mystery book that made me cheer and laugh out loud in many places. Kit is a strong, flawed and interesting character. Her pragmatism and sense of humour add terrific spark to the novel. Her cast of 'support' characters provide a good balance and are so well drawn that you feel you know them, or someone like them. This is an easy-to-digest, fast and fun mystery for those who like a bit of escapism and challenge without the drama and gore.

Book One in the Kit O’Malley series

Ex cop, now Private Investigator, Kit O’Malley’s latest job is not very exciting. She’s been hired by a wealthy client and old friend of her mother, Celia Robinson, to follow her cheating husband Geoffrey. The assignment is run of the mill, Kit documents Geoffrey meeting with a blonde, a redhead and businessman, Ian Dalkeith. All quite mundane until a body is found in the Robinson’s fish pond.

The cops are on the case, but this doesn’t satisfy Celia’s d
Kit O'Malley is a fantastic and dynamic character that captures the attention of the reader for all of her foibles. She's not perfect - hell, she's not even that hard boiled of a PI - but her character traits and flaws make her all the more appealing. Take a bit of "The Hardy Boys" but grown up, twist in a bit of Angela Lansbury and a bit of Ellen DeGeneres and you'd have someone vaguely resembling Kit's character....just not as well rounded.

Of particular charm in the book is the utt

Great beginning to a new series (well at least new to me)!! Kit O'Malley is that kind of imperfect perfection as a private investigator that gets more than she bargained for when the client she was working for ends up dead. What was once just an adultery case becomes a murder investigation that hits a little too close to home for Kit. Along the way she fights attraction to her new client's lawyer who seems to hate Kit and disapproves of her "friendship" with Quinn (the daughter of Kit's original ...more

Loved the first book and immediately bought the second
This is another good, well-written and well-paced lesbian mystery. P.I. Kit O’Malley is hired by the rich owner of a successful publishing company to find out what her no-good husband is up to. Along the way she meets with her client’s rebellious daughter and also with the beautiful Alex Cazenova, who makes Kit’s head spin so much that she can barely concentrate on her job. It is seemingly, however, a one-sided attraction.

The mystery is a pretty interesting one, replete with a lot of bad baddie
