About this Book
In an effort to get her security consulting business off the ground, Kelsey Allen has been spending a lot of time up in the air, rappelling down buildings and climbing through windows to show business owners their vulnerabilities to thieves. When she is hired to pose as a conservator at the Pink Palace Museum in order to test their security weaknesses after some artifacts go missing, she’s ecstatic. But when her investigative focus turns from theft to murder, Kelsey knows she’s out of her league–and possibly in the cross hairs. When blast-from-the-past Detective Brad Hollister is called in to investigate, Kelsey may find that he’s the biggest security threat yet . . . to her heart.

Can I say I loved it!?! First off, I related to the main character, Kelsey Allen. She was a woman after my own heart, in that she was a hacker trying to start her own security company. She was smart and fun to watch. I also related with her snarky attitude.
The story grabbed me from the beginning and kept me guessing throughout. I always enjoy it when the author allows the reader to solve the mystery along with the characters. Bradley kept me guessing. The chemistry between Kelsey and Brad was extremely fun. I loved the interactions.
I was also impressed with how she covered the hacking parts of the story. She kept it simple enough that the computer novice wouldn’t be lost, but for those of us that have experience should find Kelsey’s actions plausible.
This is a book 2 in the series but is not dependent on book 1. You see many of the same characters from book 1 in a supporting role.
