Necklaces & Nooses*

New Boss Found Hanging!

At her new job in a boutique, Presley walks to find her boss Solange hanging from a light fixture. Presley figures it’s suicide, but Detective Willie thinks it’s a homicide. As Willie works on the case, he and Presley begin dating. Who killed the boss? Will Presley be a suspect since she found Solange? Will she and Willie become an item?

This second book of the series is an improvement over the first. The author isn’t trying so hard to be sassy or quirky and is playing a bit more with Presley’s character. I’m wondering, although, if it will be a thing in this series that Presley develops a romantic interest in whoever is investigating the murder in the book. Book three might give me some insight! The book has some issues with grammar, punctuation, and usage. Most glaring was the improper use of a past participle, *had broke* instead of *had broken*. It was a little jarring to see, but otherwise, I wasn’t overly impacted by these issues.

I received a free copy of this book, but that did not affect my review.
