The following review originally appeared on Book End Babes, a website devoted to a love of reading and to learning about new authors.
Before I start to gush over the latest in the Gotcha Detective Agency series, the ethical part of me wants to disclose that not only did I get to read this before you all, I got to be a beta reader. That said, I got to have some input in the draft process, which I was honored to be chosen to do.
Now that that’s out of the way, let’s talk Death of a Sales Rep, which you will be able to download by the end of the month. The novel is set in San Francisco, where Mimi and the infamous Nick are helping Charles’ other half Anthony with his trade show. Mimi comes across the dead body of the bane of Anthony’s business and sets off to solve the case herself, when she isn’t frolicking with Nick and working on Gotcha business.
If you’ve read my reviews of the first two novels in this series, you know I adore Charles! For all of your Charles fans out there, this is the novel for you! He’s quite the troublemaker and without his pushiness, the Nick and Mimi moment of the series might not have happened. I think I’m going to remain mum on that topic; you’ll have to read that one for yourself!
In Death of a Sales Rep, we see some progress in the relationship between Nick and Mimi. As with every Gotcha novel, the story keeps your rooting for Nick and Mimi more and more as a couple. But their story wouldn’t be complete without someone being stubborn and Mimi being jealous. It was nice to see them partner like sane people to capture the murderer! The murder, by the way, was quite the interesting character.
My absolute favorite part of this book is the last line! My mouth dropped to the floor and I cannot believe where Jamie is going to take this series in the next book! While I loved this book, I cannot wait for the next one to come. What a tease!
I love the anticipation of having to wait for the next book in a series, but feel tormented when my favorite authors end with such teasers! Do you guys feel like this too?
