BOOK REVIEW: Finding Sky by Susan O'Brien

Finding Sky (Nicki Valentine Mysteries, #1)
by Susan O'Brien (Goodreads Author)
Kindle Edition, First, 276 pages
Expected publication: October 7th 2014 by Henery Press

A widow and P.I. in training Nicki Valentine investigates the disappearance of a young mother who is going to give her baby up for adoption to her neighbor (and best friend). Her neighbor has been looking forward to having the new bundle of joy and encourages Nicki, who is still taking P.I. lessons from the hunky, Dean, to use her newfound skills to find the pregnant girl and her baby.

I spent most of the book trying to figure out who the "Sky" was in the title. I didn't discover who that was until the end, but besides that I found this book compelling and scary in places. There were a few instances where I wanted to yell at Nicki, "what are you doing?" She got herself into so much trouble. I could see a single women getting herself into such danger, but a mother? Yikes! This book definitely had my heart racing in places.

I also enjoyed the play between Nicki and Dean but I wish there had been more of that in there. But the ending kiss was quite satisfying. 

I completely enjoyed this book and gave it a very deserved 5 Stars. I will look forward to more books by this author.

 I received this as an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) from Net Galley in return for an honest review. Thank you Henery Press!!
