Number 12 in the Reagan Reilly series. Reagan Reilly is all alone in wintery New York while her husband is at a conference. So it doesn't take much to convince her to go to LA to help an old friend. Abigail loaned her boyfriend $100,000 and then he disappeared for several months. She needs the money back and someone has spotted the cad in town. She is hoping Reagan can use her PI skills to help her find him.
I like how Clark structures her stories. They usually have 10 to 15 characters that seem unconnected at first. But as the story grows, pieces start to tie together little bits until the climax when everything finally makes sense. I also like that they are lighter in tone than books by Clark's mother, Mary Higgins Clark. I like my mysteries "cozy."
