Tiffany Black is a croupier whose dream is becoming a Private Investigator. When she's one step away from achieving this, she gets a great offer: to investigate the murder of the famous casino owner Ethan Becker. The person who hires Tiffany is Sofia, his wife and the main suspect in the investigation, in a case where everything points to her without a hint of doubt. If she can't find anything to free her client, her PI career will be over before it even starts. If she succeeds, it would be a great thing to have as her first case and maybe she'll finally have a chance of quitting her croupier job for good.
I got this as a freebie in Amazon and I really enjoyed it. The main character is likeable and smart, without being pretentious. Although I didn't quite buy the way the investigation developed, I had fun reading the book and getting to know Tiffany, her family (her grandmother deserved more pages, I loved her!), and the effective and mysterious security expert, Stone. I would like to read the rest of the series. Three and a half stars!
