Peaches & the Gambler by AT Hicks/Review

Author AT Hicks offered her book to me in exchange for an honest review.   I am pleased to say, I have now completed the book and it was an enjoyable read.


Peaches and the Gambler (#1)

My Review:

Truly, I found this book enjoyable.   I was able to relax and enjoy the story as I read.   And I found the premise of the story refreshing and interesting.   Peaches Donnelly found herself fired and out of work.   She is sucked in with a kind heart and inability to say no to her father's neighbor, whose son had been murdered; worse yet, he is her only child.   The neighbor, Ms Penny was dissatisfied with the ongoing police investigation and asked Peaches to look into Lenny's death and find his killer.   Peaches is about as qualified as I would be to take on such a request, but she does it, including going so far as to accept  work as a stripper at the Club Lenny was last seen at.

The writing is simple and flows smoothly, the voice of the author tender as she develops her characters and moves them forward.   The main character Peaches, is clearly a normal woman with a tender heart who clearly wants to help Ms Penny and bring her some peace over this loss.  It is very difficult for her to say no and she finds herself in a multitude of "bad place to be at the wrong time" and sometimes with the "wrong" person at the wrong time.

I would rate this book at three and a half winks!

Disclaimer:  I read for my pleasure.   I may receive ARC copies for review purposes, but I am not compensated for my reviews .  I like to read and I like to share my reviews.   I post my thoughts without prejudice or bias.  The words are mine and I write reviews based on my humble opinion.  I will admit, I seldom meet a book I don't like.
