I received a review copy
Vanna Treme runs a domestic investigations agency in downscale Deport Beach, Florida. She spies on cheating spouses while struggling to recover from her own imploded marriage. Vanna’s unique PI firm also offers Ex-Treme Measures, special services designed to get rid of the marital problem. Forever.
Ringo, Vanna’s trusted assistant, a hunky ex-cop, is worried. Their clients are lying to them, local competition is moving in, and everyone in South Florida is crazy or untrustworthy—or both. But Vanna refuses to listen. She heads for the superficial glitter of Palm Beach, where the hits just keep on coming her way.
Ex-Treme Measures combines humor, action, and evolutionary biology to investigate some of our culture’s most pressing mysteries, including why men act like men, and why the hell women put up with it.
While I thought this book sounded just an eensy bit out there, I still wanted to read it, and to my pleasant surprise, I was hooked! It was a bit hysterical reading about all the Ex-Treme clients, but the concept on a whole was just so intriguing. And the little love triangle-ish VAnna is in was also interesting to read about. Definitely an attention-grabbing read!
