Charm City

Charm City: A Tess Monaghan Novel, is the second book in the series. Not yet a full-fledged PI (e.g., no office, no license), she's hired by the local newspaper to investigate a potential hacking of their computer systems in order to find who planted a story that was not supposed to run. As I said in my review of the first book in the series, Baltimore Blues, I'm a fan of this type of genre. I think I enjoyed this one even more than the first, because though she's still a little dense, the mistakes she made were believable and human and because there was nothing apparently violent, you never expected her to ask for the help she may or may not need. I guess it what it really comes down to is in this book, she made a good case for transitioning from amateur sleuth to professional which sets up the third book nicely. So thanks Annie for starting me on these books. I'm looking forward to the next one!

Oh, and these books are available via my local library in the Kindle format - gotta love that!

I'm glad you're enjoying these! Tess really evolves a lot in this series; it's interesting to see it happen.
