A Heartbreaker Bay Novel
I’ve enjoyed every book in this series and this is another good one. After receiving some bad health news, I was looking for a light, funny escape and this fit the bill perfectly.
Kylie is a woodworker who learned from the best, her grandfather. But he was killed in a terrible fire that also took much of his work. She has a special gift from him, a hand carved penguin that is such a treasure to her that she carries it with her. One day after work, she picks up her bag and notices it is open and everything spilled out, and the penguin is gone.
She is desolate, and mentions it to her boss who barely responds. Then she gets an envelope pushed through her mail slot that has a picture of the penguin in a precarious position, and she is determined to find it.
Kylie reluctantly approaches Joe Malone. He works for a private investigating company and is a real bad ass. They have a bit of history – one night at a party, she was drunk and kissed him. It was a life changing kiss for her, but he never followed up so she gave up on him. Nonetheless, she needs his help and he hers – he wants her to make a carved mirror for his sister. A deal is struck, but Kylie isn’t content to sit back and wait for Joe to find it, she insists on coming with him every step of the way.
You can see where it goes but who cares, the journey is the fun part. Another excellent entry into the Heartbreaker Bay series.
