Look out London, there’s a new investigator in town! Harley Hill is a twenty-five year old woman in need of a new identity. Until now she’s been know as many things: Thief, Bandit, The girl dressed like a ninja…

When she’s offered an investigative position at the Silvers Finders Agency, she decides it’s time to go straight. But when a jewelry store break-in she’s investigating turns into a murder case, Harley will need all her skills to find the killer and avoid the attentions of a Russian crime boss.

With the help of her new friends, and some from her underworld past, Harley faces a race against the clock. She’ll need to uncover the secret behind the artifact left at the jewelry store if she’s to catch the murderer. If she fails, it won’t just be the job she loses — but her life.


Harley is not my real name.

The reason why will become clear as I tell you the story of how I went from being a rogue orphan to an expert finder with the Silvers Finders Agency.

Page 56:

“It’s quite the mystery. Still, food first, sleuthing later. Come on, there’s a great pub up here. It’s on expenses, so perhaps we’ll have dessert too, eh?”

“Now you’re talking.”

I didn’t need to be asked twice when cake was involved.


This first book in the Harley Hill Mysteries series was on sale for 99 cents and book two was free, so I had to get both, obviously. This sounds like a nice cozy, funny, type of mystery and I tend to really enjoy those. The beginning make me very curious and the 56 part made me laugh. It sounds like a pretty good story, so I’m excited to start it soon.

What’s on your reading schedule for this weekend? 

I hope you have a nice weekend.

Happy Reading!
