Jade goes back to home to be with her family, and help out with the family business, after her father ends up in hospital. She also came home due to losing her job and fiance, but that's her little secret. For now. On her first day, she discovers the dead body of an employee, and has to take his place as delivery driver. What she finds, is that he wasn't just delivering pizza to these customers, and his death is more twisted that she initially thought. I enjoyed this one! The characters were interesting, the plot was intriguing, and I liked what other characters, like Lily, brought to the story. This book had a focus on family and relationships, but with a murder mystery tied in, and it was just a real easy, fun story to read. I hope there will be more!

This is my first Nicolette Pierce story and I’m already a huge fan. Jade is easy to like and empathize with. Her family, work, and romantic life are all in shambles but she keeps her scooter running right up until it’s stolen. The story is really well written and the pieces are nicely tied up with just enough of a cliff hanger to make me willing to wait, impatiently, for the next book in the series. In the meantime I’ll have to go read this author’s other series! I did receive an ARC copy of this book and highly recommend it willingly. If you enjoy a cozy type of mystery with a light romantic touch you will enjoy this book.
