Maggie has a chip on her shoulder almost as big as the island she lives on. Having a father who was disappointed she wasn’t a son has turned her into a sarcastic, jaded workaholic. Yet she’s happy on her island with her airport and charter business because she has the family she’s picked.
P.I. Dex needs to find a wealthy family’s missing baby—a decades old cold case that could make his career. He’ll need prickly Maggie’s help to crack the secretive islanders and his case. Dex may discover more than a missing heir—he might find love.
The verbal sparring between the heroine and hero snagged my interest right away. Maggie’s backstory makes her strong, prickly character with a gooey heart believable and the father drama peppered in sells it. There’s several plots packed in here and most of it is resolved. Though we never meet Maggie’s mother. I would have liked to see a little closure there. And unfortunately we don’t discover who the missing baby is in this book. That plotline is stretched on into another book…maybe more. However that doesn’t take away from this story’s enjoyment. I give this a solid 4.5* for the sparring and hot love scenes.
