it was ok

This is my opinion only of this book.

What Matters Most had a good base idea with our heroine losing everything she held dear, when she was robbed of her belongings. They didn't have monetary value, but they did hold very personal and sentimental value. But there are things lacking. Comments are made, parts of a back story told, but never followed up on, or used later on in the book. Why mention them at all? Tense moments occur, but the situations are diffused quickly; too quickly.
It has the potential to be a really good read, unfortunately, for me, it didn't really deliver.

Meagan is on a mission to recover her stolen belongings, by whatever means necessary, including shoving a gun in the face of the owner of King's Pawnshop and demanding he hand over a piece of jewellery. She had already emptied her bank account buying back stolen guns from Ace's pawnshop.

King is less than impressed at being held up in his own store, especially by a thief dressed in old battle fatigues, oversized boots and overly dramatic makeup. But when the cops show up, he decides there's something about his robber that prevents him from turning her in and has him telling the police that the robbers ran off down the street.

The two embark on a cat and mouse game and when King puts an ad in for a housekeeper to help his poorly mother, it seems like the game is on.
