What’s another word for concierge/shrink/babysitter? Apartment manager, of course!
When Cambria Clyne—a single mom down on her luck—gets the job as apartment manager at an L.A. apartment complex, she believes her life is turning around. But between having to talk to the retired couple in Apartment 22 about their loud bedroom “activities” and babysitting the owner’s man-child who lives in Apartment 40, Cambria realizes the job is nothing like she’d imagined.
When crime takes over the community, Cambria adds “detective” to her list of duties, determined to find the criminals terrorizing the residents and threatening her job. Joining her efforts are rivals Chase, the gorgeous not-so-handy maintenance man, and Tom, her one-time-love baby daddy. As the case unravels and tensions increase, Cambria finds that perhaps she’s been a naïve accomplice all along…
If you like the lovable in-over-their-heads heroines of Sophie Kinsella’s stories, with a little Janet Evanovich cozy mystery thrown in, you’ll love this hilarious look at the adventures of a feisty gal trying to keep her crazy job and find love.
This book was a blast! I was excited when I saw this was a part of a series, but this is actually the second book, and FOR HIRE was the first. That goes to show that these can definitely be read as a standalone, but I know I want to read FOR HIRE now as well! Fast-paced, full of funny moments, and deliciously exciting until the end, I was totally hooked. If you like a good chick lit mystery like myself, check out Erin Huss!
