There's always trouble in Twin Rivers... Beacon news reporter Lindsey Fox is on the verge of breaking a huge story of political corruption that will make her career and make her famous journalist parents proud—or she could be thrown in jail and fired. It really could go either way. Her recent streak of bad luck continues when Lindsey finds herself facing a bogus contempt charge—and attorney Ben Gillespie is appointed to get her out of the slammer. They once had a bad date of epic proportions—stilted conversation, food poisoning, burglary, towed car. Then there was the incident with the pepper spray. Lindsey never believed she’d see the sexy lawyer again. Ben can totally believe that Lindsey is behind bars. The woman is trouble. Now he has to get his new client out of jail, keep her out of the grasp of a crazed bike messenger and a shady P.I., help her save her job, and convince her to put down the pepper spray and give him another chance.

 USA Today best-selling author Ellie Ashe has always been drawn to jobs where she can tell stories—journalist, lawyer, and now writer. Writing quirky romantic mysteries is how she gets the "happily ever after" that so often is lacking in her day job.
When not writing, you can find her with her nose in a good book, watching far too much TV, or trying out new recipes on unsuspecting friends and family. She lives in Northern California with her husband and three cats, all of whom worry when she starts browsing the puppy listings on petfinder.com.

Denice Stradling has a 25-year background in theatre, film, and television. After majoring in Humanities/Theatre in college, she went on to tour with a national theatre company, performing in more than 10 countries in 10 years, as well as directing and leading acting workshops. Audiobooks were a perfect fit to combine her acting skills and her lifelong love of reading. Denice made a foray into audiobook narration 10 years ago, first doing volunteer work for Learning Ally. Since then, she has worked for Penguin/Random-House, Bee Audio, Harper Audio, Blackstone Audio, Audible, and others. She is also a published writer, having written short fiction for WOMAN'S WORLD magazine, more than 200 greeting cards for various greeting card companies, and devotionals for Augsburg Press. She has also written a novel, which requires editing and publishing, … “and then my narration, when I can find the time!” Denice lives in the greater Los Angeles area with her husband, whom she met in her high school drama class—she played the heroine and he played the villain in the school's melodrama. Not your typical love story—but it's working!

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Ellie Ashe. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

This story is fun! Some times I feel a little out of it and don't want ANYTHING to do with mystery. Other times, I want it like chocolate ice cream. And A LOT of it. This story grabbed my attention with the blurb. The characters are well developed

MY RATING: 4 OF 5 STARS.
I must say that though the narrator and the audio were fantastic, and don't hold me to this, because I don't even know how to say it. Something fell short for me. But feeling pushed aside, I really liked this book.
I almost thought I wouldn't have finished listening in time. My family was in the middle of house-hunting, we were all packing our stuff. So, my mind was not fully focused on what I was listening to. But I hopped right back into it a few days ago, started over and listened to the parts I needed more detail from.
