Wish Upon A Christmas Star-Darlene Gardner

Wish Upon A Christmas Star

Darlene Gardner

Harlequin SuperRomance, Nov 27 2012, $5.50

ISBN: 9780373718221

In Lexington, Kentucky, Caroline Webb stuns private investigator Maria DiMarco with the claim that the sleuth’s late brother Mike is blackmailing her. Maria insists Mike died when the Towers collapsed to the woman who broke her sibling’s heart when they were an entry in high school. Carole explains she received photos and letters that lead to Key West.

Praying for a miracle but wondering why Mike failed to inform his family he lives, Maria travels to Key West to determine the truth. At the request of her sister Annalise, Maria’s former boyfriend Logan Collier, who broke her heart when he chose high finance over her, follows her to the Conch Republic.

This is an entertaining second chance at love investigative thriller as the mystery of Mike is cleverly constructed. The romance enhances the inquiry as the strong lead couple begins having revelations of the heart and what each lost the first time around.
