Book: Chasing the Dollar
Author: Ellie Ashe
Stars: 5 out of 5 Stars
Nothing better than find a new author who keeps you up all hours of the night reading her book. I love a good mystery and this was had all the elements to make it one great all night read. Love able Heroine, sexy romantic interest, murder, mayhem, and great dialogue.
Miranda Vaughn has spent the last year fighting for her freedom when she is accused of a fraud involving her superiors. She loses her job at a prestigious investment firm, she loose her fiancé, and to top it off she loose her reputation. When Miranda decides to investigate her own case she finds a large scheme that involves more money than the 37 Million she was suspected of stealing from investors. When the danger heats up so does Miranda feelings for a certain FBI agent.
Miranda is a great characters who has the support of other minor characters her Aunt Marie, the lawyer Rob Froggs and her friend Sarah. I hope Ms. Ashe will bring out those in future novels. Miranda is an intelligent, and a spunky person who loves numbers but has no idea that people do not have the same moral code she has. They do not care about the people who they scammed and only want her to finish what they started. Miranda has a heart and passion for the people she cares about and will do anything to keep them safe. Miranda crosses the globe, goes undercover and finds herself falling for FBI agent Jake whom she is not sure she can trust. After all he put the handcuffs on her.
This book has all the ingredients to make a great mystery with a strong heroine, a love interest for when the book has down time and enough chase scenes to keep you reading until the last the very last page. Chasing the Dollar book has great dialogue that is well written and has a natural flow never once causing the reader to be pulled out of a scenes. The story is well thought out and it had a natural flow from one scene to anther until you wish her second book was already out.
There is swearing but it doesn’t take away from the story it only flows with how the character is feeling.
