to Thrill is a sexy mystery with characters that sizzle alone
and even more together. Charlee Champagne is a private investigator
based in Las Vegas who works with her grandmother, Maybelline. When
Maybelline leaves for her annual fishing trip earlier than usual,
Charlee thinks nothing of it. That is, until Mason Gentry shows
up looking for his grandpa in connection with Maybelline.
Gentry is steaming mad because he is the one who has gotten stuck
with the chore of finding his rich grandfather who has disappeared
with the family company's money, half a million dollars. Mason found
Maybelline's name and number on Nolan's paper and he refuses to
believe Charlee when she insists that Maybelline has nothing to
do with Nolan or his money. Together, they search for their grandparents
only to learn that they have been kidnapped by an Elvis impersonator.
As they say, only in Vegas.
License to Thrill and was happy that the mystery got just
as much time as the romance. The characters moved this original
story along at a fast pace. I will definitely look for other books
by Lori Wilde.
