Hot Rocks by Randy Rawls is the first book in the new “Beth Bowman, P.I.” mystery series. Publisher: Midnight Ink, November 2012
This great read features gutsy private investigator Beth Bowman who takes on a simple case but instead is accused of murder when a dead body is found near her unconscious state. Trying to find the killer(s), Beth who knows her limitations, keeps on looking for clues until the job is done inherits a motley crew of back-up support that includes the mysterious Bob, Dr David and Dot. The author did a good job in delivering a finely tuned mystery that entertained me from the first page to the explosive finale. I loved how Beth handles the situations that she found herself in using her personal bravado. I can’t wait to read the next exciting forays that Beth and her cohorts find themselves in, in this delightfully enjoyable debut series.
