Is it strange to have the unemployment office on speed dial? Not for twenty-four-year-old college dropout Rylie Keyes. Her current job at a small retirement home is worlds more important than all her past gigs, though: if she loses this one, she won’t be able to stop the forced sale of her and her grandfather’s home, a house that has been in the family for ages. But keeping her job means figuring out the truth about a senior citizen who was found murdered while in her care. Explain that one, Miss Keyes.
The late Otto Weiner was thought to be a penniless Nazi concentration camp survivor with a silly grudge against Rylie. However, Otto was not a liked man by any means, and his enemies will stop at nothing to keep their part in his murder secret.
Forced to dust off the PI training she has to keep hidden from her ex-detective grandfather, Rylie must align with a circus-bike-wheeling Samoan while juggling the attention of two very hot cops who each get her all hot and bothered for very different reasons. And as she trudges through this new realm of perseverance, she has no idea that along the way she just might win, or lose, a little piece of her heart.
This is laugh out loud funny. In this new series we meet Rylie Keyes who has yet to find herself. She has always wanted to be a P.I. but has been discouraged from chasing that dream by the one person she loves most, her ex-police detective grandfather. So she has tried and failed at a lot of othe... ...more

Rylie Keyes is a hilarious quick-witted heroine. The mystery gets complex (which is not easy to do to me since I figured out all the Nancy Drew books by chapter two when I was ten).
The chapter headings in Malicious Mischief are sarcastic and fit the story-I loved them. The only thing th... ...more
So i'm going to admit this book wasn't what i was expecting when i started it. I was expecting far more romance than i got (though i suspect that is the publishers fault not the authors) That being said it was still a page turner. The mystery kept me going because i needed to know what happened.... ...more
