Great story line. (No romance.) Harriet is a kick-butt former "Boca Babe" turned P.I. who takes on her first murder case. She "took care" of her abusive, rich husband, sells off all her "bling", moves to the Everglades and rides her Harley everywhere. Harriet starts acting like "Dirty Harry" and takes charge of her life. She uncovers a fertility clinic's "wombs-for-arms" deal between migrant working women and the rich women of Boca Raton, Florida. I loved her way of thinking and I wanted to BE her! She told things like they were: (Here's how you tell the Boca Babe aspirants from the arrivals: It's not a matter of artificial versus authentic, it's the quality of the artifice. The wannbe's bleached blond hair has dark roots and split ends, their artificial nails are press-on rather than silk wrap and their makeup is sparkly rather than subtle. But the fake boobs are the same.) Also the TWTW Club: Trolls With Trophy Wives! I laughed out loud at some of her observations!
Great book...amazingly, this is the author's debut novel.
I'm eagerly waiting for the sequel.
