Yesterday Cece Cash came dangerously close to stuffing Derek North into the trunk of her car and dumping his body in the Vegas desert. Then she snapped out of her daydream and realized he wasn’t worth the prison time.
As much as Cece hates to admit it, she needs Derek. Her old pal’s cash rescued her private investigation agency. Her witchcraft hadn’t been enough to save the business. Luckily for her, Derek has the money and she has the skills. Well, at least she thinks she has the skills. She’s still counting on the spell casting to help.
Now if she can just pay Derek back, she’ll send him packing to Savannah and get him out of her hair for good. Wisecracking and fun-loving Derek has other plans though. He enjoys being a part of the agency. Life is a party and he isn’t about to waste a minute of it. Why else would he come to Vegas?
What happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas. Sometimes the shenanigans pop up in the middle of the desert in a burning car. A successful owner of a fitness club is suspected of murder and disappears right after the crime. Cece and Derek are hired to find the woman and uncover the truth about the homicide of a young fitness trainer. The stakes are high in Sin City for Cece and Derek. Will luck be on their side or will they lose it all?
Overall, I really enjoyed this novel. It was crafted a bit different than the typical Pressey novel. Cece and Derek are not a romantic couple. They're not even really friends at the start of the novel. I enjoyed watching their relationship evolve. Something else to note, yes Cece is a witch, but she doesn't have any extra powers nor does she really do too many witchy things. Pressey will mention her casting a spell every so often, but beyond that there really isn't anything else that is paranormal about this novel. Either way I thought that this was a fun read. I look forward to reading the next novel in this series.
