Book Review - Bitter Sweets by G. A. McKevett
While I was up half the night with what seems to be the flu, I was pretty much able to start and finish Bitter Sweets by G. A. McKevett. This is the second book in the series, and you end up getting a fair amount of character development devoted to Savannah's grandmother. She shows up on Savannah's doorstep, wanting to experience a trip to Disneyland. Unfortunately, Savannah has a few other things going on.
Savannah's new detective agency gets its first case, and it's a request to track down a missing sister. They take all the necessary precautions to make sure the person requesting the trace is actually her brother, and they start the hunt. When they finally find her, they learn she's in hiding from her ex-husband who has threatened to kill her and their daughter. Before Savannah can arrange a meeting between brother and sister, she finds out she's been duped. The sister is murdered, the child is kidnapped, and Savannah now has to track down the killer. To make it worse, the chief of police is seriously considering charging her with being an accessory to the murder.
A nice number of twists and turns, and some ethical questions at the end where you have to figure out whether justice would be served by doing the "right" thing.
