About this ebook

“I hadn’t planned on a trip to the French Riviera, but then, I hadn’t planned on shooting a London crime lord in his well-padded derrière.”

Meet Angel Doyle, a semi-reformed thief and accidental P.I.

During an unfortunate incident at her first legit job in years, Angel fires a ketamine dart into one of London’s most notorious gangsters. Now she’s in disguise and on the run. With a bunch of thugs on her tail, she embarks on a mad chase across France, determined to stay one step ahead of the villains.

At least, that was the plan.

The moment out-of-work actor Sidney Foggington-Smythe sits next to her on the train to Paris, Angel has no idea she’s just met the second half of their crime-solving duo. How can a fashion-obsessed posh boy be anything but a hindrance? When fate forces the two twenty-somethings into the same stolen Mercedes, Angel is hampered by an unwanted sidekick, a kidnapped cat, and a corpse with a tendency to pull a Houdini. Now Angel and Sidney are in a race against time to reach Nice, find the killer, and clear their names before their next destination is the morgue.

Meet Angel Doyle part thief, part PI. Stealing a passport to go from Paris. The mode of dress to pass as that woman, was not hers. When shooting a crime lord Carlyle Monty. had no choice. . Meeting an out of work actor, a stolen Mercedes, a kidnapped cat. Angel and Sidney in a race to get to Nice Mayhem and murder in a delightful story. With plenty of humor as these two dash across France. Good characters, good plot, and enjoyed Given ARC for my voluntary review and my honest opinion

Another excellent adventure from Zara Keane. We were first introduced to Angel in another cozy series. In Apocalypse Meow we meet the mysterious Angel. In this book, I loved that we were able to get to know Angel better. This mystery has so many comedic moments. Angel is on the run from a dangerous situation and goes to great lengths to be incognito. During this time, she meets Sydney- who is ready to shake up his own life- who gets tangled into her situation. These two are headed into several mishaps as they attract bad luck. Angel is able to use her intellect, skills, and wit to get them away from situations. She turns to help from people in her past that she has complicated relationships with. There is also a feline friend that may be a hinderance to their journey. It seems that trouble has a knack for finding Angel and it was a thrilling ride to see what would happen. Lots of twists in this book- as soon as I thought I figured something out, I would discover that I was wrong. I loved how it ended that may set Angel up for a new adventure. I am eagerly anticipating the next book in this series so I can find out what happens to Angel, Sydney, and everyone we met on the way.

I really enjoyed this book, I'm so glad Zara Keane is starting a new series as I already love reading her Movie Club Mysteries and this is an awesome spin-off. Angel gets herself in a bind and it keeps getting worse and worse. Picking up a random stranger on the way just adds to her woes, especially when he's thirsting for adventure, so refuses to leave, in spite of all the bad stuff that's going down. I was reading at a pretty quick pace, mainly because I couldn't wait to see how Angel and Sidney got themselves out of the deep hole they kept getting further and further down into. It was a very satisfying ending, and they're all set up for a new mystery! I can't wait to see where they end up next.
