What readers are saying
"Not a police procedural at all, but a fun, romantic, humorous whodunit. Pure pleasure."
"Richie's and Rebecca's relationship is priceless and a lot of fun. For that reason as well as the solid mystery, I loved this book!"
"Rebecca Mayfield would not last a day as a real life "investigator." With that being stated, that is what makes this book an enjoyable read. She is quirky, likable, and of course, looking for love in all the wrong places. The carefree and whimsical tone that permeates this murder mystery novel makes it unique. Unrealistic? Yes. Enjoyable and an easy read? Yes."
"The fact that Richie is someone from Rebecca's past makes this is a fun, fast, sometimes laugh out read."
"Joanne Pence plays with the cop-cozy dynamic in One O'Clock Hustle by making the cop a woman and the damsel-in-distress a dude-in-distress in a way that works really well."
"Although the Inspector would never get away with the things she does on and off the job, it's all in good fun. And the romantic twist adds to the flavor of the story. A nice read and a good start for the series."
"Saying a detective wouldn't break the rules, is a little shortsighted. It does remind me a little of Remington Steele, suave, debonair, full of surprises. But this book is so much more. Enjoy!"
"I enjoyed the wild ride."
"A "by the book" homicide inspector and an attractive, though probably "connected," male provide numerous opportunities for watching the sparks fly. Enjoy!"
"If you have to love the bad guy, you will definitely love Richie. A little unbelievable .. really a lot unbelievable... where the detective and suspect are concerned but it is a story and not true crime."
"I was immediately pulled into this story and learned to love Rebecca and understandable the pull between the heart and common sense."
