Picture Not Perfect by D.E. Haggerty-Great Escapes Tour

About the book 
A picture tells a story. But is it the truth?
When the police find pictures of Melanie hanging up at her murdered colleague’s house, they’re convinced he was stalking her. Maybe she even killed him. Melanie was not being stalked! And she certainly didn’t kill her supposed stalker – as if. But Mel – always up for a bit of drama – jumps at the chance to go search for the real killer. When Mel’s ex-boyfriend, Owen, discovers her plans, he pulls out all the stops to ensure she’s safe and to win her back. No matter what happens with the murder investigation, he’s not letting her go. With the police setting their sights on Mel, he may need to jeopardize his own career on the police force to protect her.
Will Mel find the real killer before the detectives arrest her for murder?
And I thought
Sometimes the cover 'gets me'.  Sometimes it's the 'blurb/synopsis'
And then sometimes it's both. Like this time.  I read the description and thought I need to read this one.  

I was glad to get the chance.  Picture Not Perfect was a page turner.  

I couldn't help but enjoy the second chance at love (not giving anything away) but Owen was just determined to keep Mel out of trouble and safe.  

Along with her friends everyone is out to prove that Mel was set up and not the murderer. 

Picture Not Perfect is #2 in the series.  Although it is written as a stand alone I couldn't help but wish I had read the previous book
which would have brought perspective and an introduction to all the characters; the friends and boyfriends that were part of the sleuthing and getting to the 'real truth." 

Finders Not Keepers book 1 in the series is on my TBR pile. 

The 'Not So Reluctant Detective' series promises to give the 
read lots of reading enjoyment!

For a fast, fun mystery check this one out. 

I received a complimentary copy. 
My review will appear on retail sites.
