Congrats Dete
on the release today of
Perfectly Good Crime!

Perfectly Good Crime by Dete Meserve
Series: Kate Bradley Mystery #2
Print and e-book, 272 pages
Published April 16th 2019 by Lake Union Publishing 

In this feel-good follow-up to the novel and Netflix film Good Sam, intrepid reporter Kate Bradley is back in a story that BuzzFeed calls “mysterious, fascinating, and inspiring.”

When burglars target the palatial estates of American billionaires in a series of high-tech heists, Kate must venture inside the world of the superrich to investigate the biggest story of the year.

But the answers don’t come easy. The Los Angeles police detective who’s helping Kate with the case has mysteriously disappeared, Kate’s senator father demands she stop investigating, and the billionaire victims refuse to talk to the media. Still, Kate uncovers clues that prove the crimes are anything but ordinary: those behind the robberies have shocking—but uplifting—motives that just may bring about powerful change.

As the heists escalate, Kate faces a momentous decision that could jeopardize her deepening relationship with fire captain Eric Hayes. Saddled with obligations to the public, her career, and her own heart, Kate must trust her instincts in a high-stakes search that will test everything she believes and force her to decide where she belongs.

Revised edition: This edition of Perfectly Good Crime includes editorial revisions.

My thoughts about Perfectly Good Crime ~~
Originally posted October 15, 2017

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first lines.)

First line—"My heels dug into the muddy ground as I clambered up the hill. Cries for help mingled with the drone of helicopters overhead, filling the early evening air. I had no idea what I would see at the top of the hill, but I suspected it would give me nightmares for a long time to come."

Perfectly Good Crime is another wonderful story from Dete Meserve! I loved the people I first met in the book #1 of this series, Good Sam, and I enjoyed spending time with them again.

I love the character of Kate. She is an honest, hard working reporter who always seems to land a story that becomes big news. As she sets to find out who is robbing the richest men in the area, she also discovers that someone is giving riches to the poor.

At the same time that Kate is researching and reporting on this compelling story, one of the biggest television networks is trying to lure her away from her current job and life. Will she be able to make the right decision? And will she be able to have the life she wants and deserves?

Dete continues to write great 'feel good' stories that show that not all news is bad. There is just the right amount of mystery and romance to keep all of her readers satisfied and I look forward to reading more of this exciting, interesting series!

I received a copy of Perfectly Good Crime from Netgally in exchange for my honest opinion.
