Nikki Hunt thought her night couldn't get worse when her no-good, cheating ex ditched her at dinner, sticking her with the bill. Then she found his body stuffed in the trunk of her car and lost her two-hundred-dollar meal all over his three-thousand-dollar suit. Now not only is Nikki nearly broke, she's a murder suspect.

Former cop turned PI, Dallas O'Connor knows what it's like to be unjustly accused. But one look at the sexy-though skittish-suspect tells him she couldn't hurt anyone. The lead detective, Dallas's own brother, has the wrong woman and Dallas hopes a little late-night "undercover" work will help him prove it...
I always get a lot of laughs when I read a Christie Craig novel and this one was no exception. The entire cast of characters was great. There wasn’t any filler or unnecessary characters in this novel.

Dallas and Nikki both have issues when it comes to trust, for very understandable reasons. These two had great chemistry together, both in and out of the bedroom.

The secondary story of Tony, Dallas’ brother, and his wife LeAnn really pulls at your heartstrings. I loved both of these characters and was totally engrossed in the seeing their happily ever after play out. I would have loved to see a lot more of these two.

Nikki’s grandmother and her Ol’ Timers were another great source of entertainment. And I was so happy to see Dallas’ father join up with them. I look forward to continuing this series. I can hardly wait to see what happens next.

I have this book but haven't read it yet. the funny thing is that I didn't know what it was about...just the stories around the blogosphere about Texas having a fit because the title is their state motto. Figured I'd support the author....glad to see the book is good ;)

I always like mysteries with a little romance. Sounds like this one would make a great movie.
