Review copy provided by Enchanted Book Promotions in exchange for an honest review.

The bookkeeper at Jared’s company has been murdered and if that wasn’t bad enough someone is trying to sabotage the company by leaking company documents to other firms who are then upstaging their presentations. Jared asks for her help to find out who is trying to take Sleeping Bear Designs down and while Presley is always willing to help a friend, she is also hoping it will take her mind off obsessing over Cooper.

Presley and Cooper are on a break or are they broken up? It was never really clarified and she just found out he’s in town and he hasn’t called. Is he avoiding her? What does that mean?

In Romance and Revenge, Presley has to solve a murder. The bookkeeper her friend Jard’s company has been murdered, and on top of that, someone is trying to sabotage the company. Jared asks Presley for help, and of course Presley agrees to help. There’s also a romantic storyline, but the book focuses  the most on solving the case.

Presley is an intriguing character, engaging and intelligent. I often read cozy mysteries where the truth stares into the heroine’s face for a while before she realizes it, and that makes the heroine come across as rather stupid, but Presley isn’t anything like that at all.

The story and plot were great, and I enjoyed the book from start to end. It’s a fast but fun read.
