This story revolves around some unexpected findings during the research of an abortion drug. Josie, the researcher who first stumbles upon the problem, is drawn into a dangerous web of deceit which threatens her and her closest friends. Nic is the computer expert called in to help with the mystery, who also ends up helping Josie with some of her personal problems, as she does with his.

Now I've got to say it: the plotline of this book is a bit convoluted. It's full of crazy twists, ironies, and c

Jan 2014 Erotica/Romance/Smut Review Challenge - to catch up on my backlog.

Story dragged. Too many non-essential characters thrown into the mix, without much delineation. Chemistry between characters was non-existent. Main female protagonist seemed holier than thou. Editing could've been helpful to trim scenes that didn't do much to advance the plot.

I have no idea what this book is about. I couldn't figure out what the beginning had to do with anything else. I couldn't keep track of the characters. The title makes it sound like it will be cute and fluffly, but it's not. And then it ends. Not like a cliffhanger. Like the author ran out of energy or decided that was enough for one book and just stopped.

But there's also a chance I wasn't paying close enough attention.

Plus the line "No chiseled Pretty Boy was he."

This book is a romantic suspense novel, but I felt it was a little more heavy on the romance than the suspense. Josie Natale is a genius bio-statistician who works primarily on pharmaceutical trials. She's your average brilliant person, great with the numbers, but not so great with the basics of life. She can't cook; she's always late; her apartment is a chaotic mess, and she has some difficulty forming lasting romantic relationships. Her current boyfriend Henry is younger than her, a bit mental ...more

This romantic suspense book was neither romantic nor suspenseful. As I read Little Miss Straight Lace I tried to give it the benefit of the doubt, hoping it would catch me up in the story. Though the beginning held a lot of promise, this book became very difficult to read. It started off with a plot that seemed interesting -- pharmaceutical data analyst Josie stumbles on to a secret -- so I was hoping for a pretty good story. However with its unlikely plot turns and jarring dialog it quickly bec ...more

Little Miss Straight Lace has a great story to tell, a great cast of characters, and a wonderful brace of villains that you enjoy hating.

Josie Natale is a bio-statistician - she makes her living checking and correlating the data produced by pharmaceutical trials. She's good at her job and has earned a reputation for being by-the-book, never fudging numbers or cutting corners - Little Miss Straight Lace. Nic Remedian is a South American security consultant brought in by Josie's best friend to inv

Josie is a researcher who stumbles onto some facts on an abortion drug. The information she's found pulls her and some friends into a threatening situation. A Computer expert, Nic, is called to help with the mystery and he and Josie help each other with personal problems.

This is an enjoyable mystery but you've got to be on your toes to read it. The beginning was a bit confusing and there are lots of twists in the story. Some of the topics in this story aren't for everyone so be ready to read abo

The story is in-depth, with great character development, and a thoroughly thought out plot. The book was good, although, a little slow to start, but once it picked up, it didn't stop, and I couldn't put it down. The story is filled with what - at first- appears to be a brewing romance, but what turns into a mystery thriller filled with unexpected plot twists. The main character, Josie, is at times a bit...over the top, but not so much as to put the reader off. And her love interest is filled wit ...more

seems to be first in a series. the plot seems a bit disjointed. probably will develop more surely in the sequels. lead female seems a bit ditsy. smart, loving but ditsy. Not a big fan of ditsy. could be because her brain processes so fast. she has some PTSD issues from a trauma in her past.

The sense of humor does add the texture to set the story apart from the typical romance, as does the duplicity in the business of creating new drugs and getting them past the FDC. Am still undecided about whether I'll continue the series or not.

I loved this book. I can't wait to see where Josie and Nic's story go from here. I enjoyed traded about the others life in this book as well. Thanks for the opportunity to read this.
This actually earns a 3 1/2 for a fun and lovable heroine. Her romantic interest, however, is too perfect to be believable, and the plot feels a bit forced. Still, a good vacation read.

This is a free kindle book. The free kindle books end
abruptly and continued in next book. Authors should finish the story.
