Vanna Treme runs a domestic investigations agency in downscale Deport Beach, Florida. She spies on cheating spouses while struggling to recover from her own imploded marriage. Vanna's unique PI firm also offers Ex-Treme Measures, special services designed to get rid of the marital problem. Forever.
Ringo, Vanna's trusted assistant, a hunky ex-cop, is worried. Their clients are lying to them, local competition is moving in, and everyone in South Florida is crazy or untrustworthy—or both. But Vanna refuses to listen. She heads for the superficial glitter of Palm Beach, where the hits just keep on coming her way.
Ex-Treme Measures combines humor, action, and evolutionary biology to investigate some of our culture's most pressing mysteries, including why men act like men, and why the hell women put up with it.
My Book Review:
What's a girl to do when her marriage fails and she is stuck in a funk? Why seek revenge and start a domestic investigations agency of course!
Ex-Treme Measures is an intriguing tale that follows the crazy adventures of Vanna Treme, when she starts a domestic investigative agency in order to help others expose and get rid of their no good cheating spouses.
Ex-Treme Measures is written in the first person narrative that easily draws the reader into Vanna's attempt to recover from her failed marriage via her domestic investigations agency. Set in Deport Beach and Palm Beach, Florida, the reader follows Vanna and Ringo, her hunky ex-cop assistant, investigate cheating spouses and using Ex-Treme Measures special services to get rid of the marital problem forever. But their investigations gets a bit messy, dangerous, and their well-laid plans don't always go as expected, especially when Vanna can't seem to let go of her own failed marriage.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this crazy good story. I really liked Vanna, she's a straight-talking, street smart girl who easily draws the reader into her story with an edgy dark sense of humor. I loved the spin on domestic investigations that author Mickey J. Corrigan weaves, there is a sense of reality to the marital issues that kept me wanting to see what would happen next as Vanna and Ringo put their investigative plans and techniques into action. I loved the balance of humor and drama that is interwoven in the story, it keeps you engaged, and the unexpected twists and turns makes this story that much more thrilling a read that leaves you wanting more.
Ex-Treme Measures is an entertaining and edgy women's mystery story that is a blast to read!
