A Deadly Business Book Review

About the Book

If the hours don't kill you, the accused just might.

Mia Quinn is a Seattle prosecutor working on high profile cases in the Violent Crimes unit while juggling the impossible demands of single parenthood. Her husband, Scott, was killed in a car crash that homicide detective Charlie Carlson now believes was no accident. Charlie's instincts and professional record make it impossible for Mia to refute the evidence she'd rather not believe.

When the powers that be refuse to reopen the case, it's up to Mia and Charlie to investigate, all the while trying to deny a growing attraction between them. Was her accountant husband really in league with nefarious criminals? And who is the young woman whose photo they find on his computer?

Uncovering the truth may hurt Mia in more ways than one. (Goodreads)

My Review

I have become a fan of Lis Wiehl since having read the first Mia Quinn mystery. I think I enjoyed this book more so but both are really good! I was more frustrated in trying to figure out what happened then kept in suspense. There were about three different story lines going on throughout the book but Wiehl did a great job in combining them all together and having them all end. The ending ends a bit fast but I look forward to reading what happens next in Mia's life.
I really liked the mystery stories and I found them believable. There were a few times when one character "swears" the words aren't on the page it just says "he swore" or used strong language.
This is a mystery with crime scenes, murder, cheating spouses, and drugs. But the author uses tact in writing about these topics.
I love how the author wove everything together and included Mia's personal life with her children.
If you enjoy mysteries or suspense this is a great book!

★★★★★, I loved it.  

** Look for this book June 10th!

*You don't have to read the first book in the series ,this book can stand alone, but I recommend reading both!
