Synopsis: IT manager Mia Connors is up to her tortoiseshell glasses in technical drama when a glitch in the Horseshoe Falls email system disrupts security and sends errant messages to residents of the gated community. The snafu’s timing couldn’t be worse—Renaissance Faire season is in full swing and Mia’s family’s business relies on her presence.
Mia doesn’t have time to hunt down a computer hacker. Her best friend has disappeared, and she finds another of her friends murdered—in her office. When the hunky new head of Horseshoe Falls security identifies Mia as the prime suspect, her anxiety level registers on the Richter scale.
Eager to clear her name, Mia moves into action to locate her missing buddy and find out who killed their friend. But her quick tongue gets her into trouble with more than the new head of security. When Mia begins receiving threats, the killer makes it clear that he’s closer than she’d ever imagined.
Review: What a fun new cozy series! Mia is a fascinating character, and her chemistry with Jake is obvious. There are a lot of humorous situations along with the seriousness of the murder investigation. We get to meet several members of Mia's family, as well as of Jake's.

As an Ohio girl myself, I enjoyed the fact that Horseshoe Falls is near Akron. It's always fun to read books set in areas I know a little something about and can relate to, after all.

I totally missed out on who the killer was, but after the reveal I had no idea how I didn't see it!  Looking forward to the next installment, coming in 2016.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are entirely my own.

Rating: Four stars
