Tandem Demise by Duffy Brown-Great Escapes Book Blast-Review

About the book 
Smugglers on the hunt, a police chief on the run, lost loot and a dead wedding planner have the Mackinac Island regulars riding in circles
After solving two murders, bike shop owner Evie Bloomfield thought life on Mackinac Island would settle into boredom until she finds out Nate Sutter, island police chief and once-upon-a-time under cover cop is on the run. Some badass guys from Nate’s Detroit days think he stole money from them in a champagne smuggling operation and now they’re headed to the island to get their loot. Evie is determined to help Nate because he’s a good cop, Nate is determined to keep interfering Evie and island locals out of harms way, and the crooks are determined to get their money.
To add to the island’s problems there’s a dead guy on the dock and the new wedding planner is more interested in playing bedroom bingo than ordering bridal bouquets.
With the help of Fiona, Evie’s BFF and local newspaper editor, Evie is determined to prove Nate innocent, figure out how champagne smuggling, bodies on the dock and a bad wedding planner are tied together and not wind up taking a long walk off a short pier herself.
And I thought 
Well I loved it.  I have no idea where I've been off on the wrong path I suspect but I've missed the previous ones in this great series. 
My thanks to author Duffy Brown for setting up this Book Blast tour with Great Escapes. 
And now why I loved it . . . 
From page one Evie and Fiona had me cracking up.  Their antics provided this reader with many laughs and giggles.  From the beginning when they stumble onto a body and then they can't call the police because there is random cell service on their lovely little island.  They actually break into a building by breaking a window to set off the alarm so the police will come. 
The police that comes is none other than the local Chief who is smitten with Evie but keeping that to himself.  (you know this I am sure if you've read the previous books...I only suspected.)  The two 
have a kind of friendship but when Evie goes into sleuth mode she
tends to cross the line. 
Even if Evie can't ride a bicycle for squat she has other talents like breaking and entering.  And does so efficient because she has her own set of lock picks.  Purple paper clips.  When these don't work though she has a back up by calling on her mothers suitor an ex
mobster who knows the ropes. 
The series is filled with colorful characters that make a fun read even if it is a murder mystery. 
In Tandem Demise Evie is determined to find the truth when Nate the Police Chief and hunk that makes Evie swoon (if she thinks about it).  Everyone in town knows there some kind of sizzle but 
Nate and Evie are running from love or at least in hiding.  

I really enjoyed my chance to get into this series and I'll be buying the previous books.  

I received a complimentary copy.
My review will appear on Amazon and Good Reads.
